Locked out of older Mitsubishi VS4503R. Need owners manual/help!

I have an older Mitsubishi television. The plate on the back has the following model number: VS4503R.

The set is completely locked out.

Been using a universal remote on it and everything was fine. I tried to hook up a VCR to it and then I got locked out.

Can someone give me some info?!

    Thanks for your suggestion - I'll give it a try next time I'm at this house.

    I do have an old clunker Mitsubishi remote that came with the TV (it was given to me) although I am not sure if it is the original.

    Thanks again!

If you are locked out of the inputs, you need a original Mits remote. Push QV and the 9 button simultaneously to unlock temporarily. Some models its the SQV button and 9. This will let you get in to change the code. You can also get a simmilar issues with the active AV network turned on, it will lock it to a set input (ie input 1). Try going into the menu and turning the av network off.

How to reset personal identifaction code (PIC), for mitsubishi 42 inch big screen tv, model #VS4503R. Input is locked until the PIC is entered

Did you do a hard reset? (Just unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then try again. It may help; I will give it a 50/50 chance).

If the reset does not help, go into the osd and reset all the feature/parameters that relate in any way to zoom and see if that will relieve it. Even the caption setting should be checked for correct function.

If the reset and the OSD check does not help, you will need service. It is probably the controller IC (this is one that regulates the overall operation of the set). The zoom is needed in order to change the picture aspect ratio for 16/9 hd as well as regular square tv.

while the tv is on, unplug it for 20 seconds, then plug it back in, should turn itself back on, but if it dont, turn it back in yourself, most of the time it will fix the issue
