    I have same problem. TV only 5 years old, picture turns blue almost immediately, then shuts off TV. Is this a bulb issue or something less expensive to fix?

    I'm having the same problem. The Timer/Stand By light continously blinks for a couple of seconds and shuts off. I have had my television for only 5 years and Circuit City used to send a contractor out to fix when i had problems. Can't afford an extended warranty from Circuit City any longer.

Corrected the problem with the color adjustment knobs behind the front cabinet. This problem is just a larger degree of seeing blue, green or red lines.

The fix for this is here somewhere, as I had the same problem last January and the solution was posted here in March last year. I'll try to find it and post the link to it for you, later.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.


Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

Picture goes blank but audio on


If you are using component cables to connect your HD box to TV. Make sure your connections are tight. You should make the colors match up. Green, Red, Blue. Check on both TV and HD box. Make sure HD pox is powered on. Make sure to select TV input to Component 1 or whichever you are using. If this doesn't work you may need to call and have COX refresh the HD box. This can be done over the phone. This will make sure you are receiving and sending the proper signal level. Good luck

The picture has shrunk - maybe 720P vs 480P?


make sure your hd cable connection from your cable box is going to an hd connection to your tv.[via hdmi, dvi,or componant.] if you have a different hook up such as rca out or coax out, these are not hd connections and you are probably streching out the picture.look at the rear of the tv & cable box and see how the connections are.the hd hook up to the hd input should make the picture the right size only if it's set on the hd input channel.hook up the dvd player to a aux/line in or video/source input and try changing the picture size. you may have to play around with it till you get it the way you want.
hope this helps.
