Question about Mitsubishi TS-50611 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen goes Blank and then flutters rainbow-like lines

Hi!

I received this 50" for free due to its problem with the screen displaying fine and as the unit warms up, it begins flashing rainbow-like lines and goes blank. Sound works fine. Is there an inexpensive simple fix?

Thanks!

Sounds like to me that the vertical circuit is whacking out....That is not uncommon with this model. Fixing requires resoldering some connections on the deflection yokes. I know that was french for you but bear with me. That repair is very complex. I do it for around $250. That does not include pickup and delivery. We do it in the home for a little less.

BTW, when I say complex let me clarify myseff. The yokes are bolted around the neck of each of the three picture tubes. The solder connections causing the problem are not accessible with out loosening the clamp and rotating them 90 degrees. Then you can get to the solder connections that are bad. Then you put the yoke back where it was. If you don't get it back exactly where it was the picture will have colored ghosts. I can readjust the beam landing of each tube but I know what I'm doing.

Lines on screen


The screen has a connection for each line on the display and the soldier on some of these connections has gone intermittent. When the unit becomes warm enough, the soldier expands and the connections become more consistent.
If you're skilled, this can be repaired. If not, either replace the unit or take it to a reputable technician.

Toshiba satilite C6550 has rainbow lines on half my screen the other half is fine ?


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
