First - I did not send in my question when I realized yours was a pay-for service. No offence, but I generally try to exhaust all approaches I can do on my own before going to paid assistance. Yes, it probably takes more time - but my rate is pretty low (ha).

Anyway - what I did was turn off and unplug the TV, the DVR and the Cable box, and
let them all sit from the time I left for work in the morning until I got home that night, about 12 hours. When I plugged everything back in - cable box first, then DVR, then TV, if that matters - everything was working fine.

I am not sure what caused this problem to begin with. I don't think it was the cable company (Comcast) because when I disconnected the TV from the cable service entirely the set was still blinking on it's own. I guess it is possible that the cable co triggered something - but how? We did have a loss of service from them for Internet access the day before the TV problem, but the set didn't have any problem until the next day. My wife thinks it was because the kids were playing a Wii console game before the trouble began - but the kids play with the Wii often enough without any later problems.

So, the set is working OK again and I am not sure why - can't get any good info from Mitsu on the web ....oh well .... now if I could just get the darned remote to work.

RCA serial 137651043, model P52939, 55 inch tv.


Half black? top/bottom or left right?

The set is rather old--a old trick to use is to connect a fan to the rear of set with the back off--it may extend the life of the set and give you some more use out of it.

I have seen a lot of these sets and never one with the problem you describe. If only a picture top or bottom is missing it may be vertical or if you are seeing what looks like a full picture with top or bottom black it is a Blanking problem--may not be easy to find...........

I have a sony 50 in rear projection. 9 years old


Sounds like the CRT tubes are going out which is fairly common on Sony. Inside the back of the TV there are 6 knobs - 2 for each color...one is for focus - dont touch - the other for brightness...turn down the brightness just a hair untill the lines go away.

"Halo" Effect


Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Mitsubishi 55 inch picture problem


That is an easy fix. There are bad solder joints in the convergence unit and line stage. For an experienced engineer, about 20minutes will find them all.
