    added comment...sometimes after the tv has been on for sometime the picture will go to normal viewing...not at all times...note I am not a TV expert but hoping I would be able to fix it...maybe an idea what this type of repair would cost...

    just looking more ideas

  • gumby2 Nov 21, 2007

    Actually I was disappointed because all of the so called experts told me to take it to a TV repair person....I already knew that solution....

The best thing you can do is call someone out out of the local phone book as this will be cheaper than them picking the set up it could be one of two problems it is eithr a power problem witch could meen something simple as a bad solder and might need resoldering this will be relitively cheap or might need a resistor replacing also not to expensive and can be done in couple of hours or the second thing could be is the projector needs realigning this would cost next to nothing but will require calling someone out with the right tools but as the picture goes the right size after the set has been on for a while i doubt it is the projector alignment i would guess it been a solder problem as when the set has been on and got warm the problem goes away so i would say it is a solder problem you could either call someone out to do this or if you have suitable transport take it to repair shop yourself cus if you get them to pick the set up they will charge for doing this hope this is some help to you good luck

With the picture shrinking down on the four sides it tells me that a possible power supply fault is the cause of the problem. The cost of repair will vary depending on whether you have the TV picked up or you take it to a repair shop yourself.
I would suggest the latter

    Most people who ask questions on this website are not repair people.

    is the is the biggest reason folks use this website, we would never want people to accidently blow up their equipment or worse injure or kill themselves or others. Playing around inside these things is very DANGEROUS. Not knowing your experience is the reason for suggesting taking broken or unworking products to repair people.

The projector is out of alignment. Special tools are needed, so you might have to take to a repairman. I have that same tv, it did that same thing last year during the superbowl, I called a repairman and he fixed it in less than an hour.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/stephen_171aeeebef53a898

    well, dude we can't fix it for ya, with out looking at it. it could be a lot of things and with out opening it up and physically looking at it, we are all experts here, what your trying to do is have us fix it for you. It's not that easy. sure some stuff gets solved, but with out looking at it it's impossible to tell. and once again we are not so called experts, we are higher than experts.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

Picture shrinks to only show top half


This is a common problem on certain models of Philips Magnavox TV sets. The most common symptom is the screen will shrink and expand over and over. After the TV heats up for a while the video will work like normal. After a few weeks or months your TV will eventually stop working and not have video.

Mitsubishi VS-5041 50 Inch Rear Prorjection TV No image but there is sound!


After 11 years???? OMG This set is a tired pup and should be put to reast. My experience with older sets and your complains are all capacitor problems and is only gonna get worse as the first time around repair will take several capacitors to repair. This set has no user serviceable parts inside so you should not attempt a repair suchj as this on your own.. This repair if you decide to go through the first time will be About 300 to 600 bucks the first time and cost will continue to raise till the sets put to sleep. Good luck
