Vs 6041 - no picture day 2 days after installing direct tv

The tv is almost 10 years old and we have always been on antenna. We got direct tv and 2 days later there is no picture. We have sound. Does this have anything to do with direct tv or is this a natural death?

    Thanks so much for responding. There was no picture on any input. The very next morning we turned the tv on and at first it started out dim then the full picture came on. This is a mystery, but we're happy we can delay buying a new tv for now.

Is it only the input that has the direct tv connected to it that has no picture, or do you have no picture at all on any inputs? If you are able to watch a dvd on say AV1 or input 1 but have no picture on the other input that has the direct tv box connected to it I would call direct tv and have them look at your box. If you have no picture at all then it is your tv. and it being 10 years old it is almost a natural failure a strange occurrence that being it happen right after you got satellite.

Did attatching HD Antenna fry my HDTV?


"the screen is nearly constantly with the exceptions of..." What does that mean?
If your antenna has a power supply it may have malfunctioned and fried your TV's tuner. Forty inch flat screens go for about $400 and up these days.
It could also be a coincidence, that the TV was expiring just when you hooked the antenna up.

My tv is about 10 years old. 4 days ago we had HD fios installed on our tv. 3 seconds in to watching a HD channel my picture went bad. I am wondering if it was verizons equi that caused this OR if it was...


No the fact that he didnt ask how old really isnt relevant. What happened when you said it went bad? I actually would be like your husband if it was working fine and he hooked it up and it fried it when he was there, I would also push for them to pay for repairs. Installers are not always the brightest guys in the world. I worked 13 years in electronics and cant tell you how many times I was in someones house to fix(not actual damage) things they hooked up wrong. Probably the truth is 10 years is a good run for a rear projection tv to go without needing something fixed.

Mitsubishi VS-6041 focus issue


Try adjusting the sharpness in your TV's menu. If it's not just that, then perhaps the tube/LCD display is simply degrading.

Tv turns on & off.


If you have the set connected to an outside antenna, or directly to a cable service, this may be a grounding issue between the TV and the antenna ground.

This answer is a speculation based on some past experience.

If there is any buildup or intermittancy of a ground leakage from the AC supply back up through the tuner and on to the TV, and then to the antenna or cable service, it may trip some protection circuits that cause a shut down condition.

Mitsubishi VS-6041- picture brightness not very bright


Hi Dawn,
The TV does have a screen control on each of the picture tubes ( there are 3 ) although I do suggest you have a qualified technician make the necessary adjustments as an improper adjustment can cause damage to the set. Should you deside to make these adjustments yourself, you'll need to remove the back ( or front in some sets) ( PRE-CAUTION, UNPLUG THE SET FROM THE WALL BEFORE PREFORMING ANY ADJUSTMENTS INSIDE THE SET ) The screen adjustments are located either on the bottom of each tube or in a group component located where the main High Voltage Wire ( large red wire from the black transformer on the deflection board ) is connected to. Look for a turn pot ( screw type adjustment ) that is marked SCREEN. When you locate it ( whether it be on each tube or in the group component ) turn it up only slightly and not to much, as excessive gain ( turning it up to much ) may cause the TV to shut down. When you have the proper brightness ( when it looks good to you ) close the set up and enjoy the renewed picture. Good luck and I do hope this has helped in some way

No picture


If, in a dark room you can't even see the screen lit up, you have probably lost your high voltage driving the picture tubes and if the set is over 10 years old, I'm pretty certain that the parts will be no longer available -- that is one of my pet peeves about Mitsubishi. If you can see a grayish screen, then maybe there's a chance it could be repaired by a competent and dedicated technican.
