Customer Question

I have a Mitsubishi model VS-50705 1999 vintage. When first powered up, it has static on the audio and snow on the screen for about 5-10 minutes, and then gets the cable signal and a perfect picture. The warmer the temperature, the less time it takes to get the signal.
As the house cools down it will have this happen again for a short duration and then keeps working. Is there a circuit board that could be replaced? Is it owner serviceable?

Hello, my name is***** am an experienced electronics field technician connected to you via this pay for assistance chat based support service.

To get started we need more information (additional details may be required):
1. Who is your cable provider?
2. What is the "cable signal"? direct line from the wall (no box) or cable box
3. If there is a box- what kind of connection goes from the box to the tv and is there a remote for the box that is used for channel changing and guide?
4. Is anything else connected to the tv like dvd or game?
