Mitsubishi rear projection (WS-73711): need help with alignment after new conv. chip
I have a Mitsubishi WS-73711 (73 inch rear projection CRT - 1080i). Every few years, the convergence chip blows out. I replace it recently, but I can't get it to look as great as when it was new. I don't think there is a problem with the chip, I just imagine it needs to be aligned after replacing the chip.
I align the red/blue using the user menu, but the green is off, and you can't align green. The quality looks somewhere between SD and HD, even when on HD programming (coming from the cable box on component). When blue titles come on at the bottom of the screen (like when watching NHRA drag racing) I can't read them they are so blurry.
This TV is a little old, but I like it. What can I do to:
- Align it after replacing the convergence chip
- Focus it (it seems to be a bit out of focus, but that could be the convergence alignment)
- Make it look decent again
I can't seem to find any advanced alignment proceedures online since this is an older set.
Also, what blu-ray test pattern DVD should I use when aligning?
