Question about Mitsubishi WS-65611 65" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Mitsubishi WS65611 no remote function & panel buttons not working

My Mitsubishi WS65611 remote has power but does not work. The TV will only turn on with the front panel power button. Once on, none of the front panel buttons function except when any of them are depressed, the screen blanks out for 1-2 seconds then comes back on. There is a picture but it's a good thing it's stuck on the HDTV device so I can at least watch TV until I find a repair for it. The sound is thankfully stuck on a reasonable volume because it can't be changed by any of the buttons. Any help would be appreciated. I've pressed the reset button many times and have unplugged and replugged many times. You can email me at If this happened to you and you found a solution. Thanks in advance for any help

This TV is known for the buttons going bad. You can remove the speaker grille to gain access to the wires for the panel. You may have to pull off the font access panel to get to the connector. There will be two of them, one for the input, other for the control panel buttons. If the buttons are bad, unhooking them will make the TV work fine with remote. I believe the connector is labeled ZR and is not the one with the thicker black wires (shieled video wires). Unhooking is my fix for this problem as replacing the buttons seems to be only a temporary fix.

Mitsubishi television model WS65611 Serial 113678. Television does not response to remote. Can manually turn on but no other buttons work. Picture and sound are good.

Buy an infared card at local electronics store. Press remote and point at card, should glow orangey. If not then remote is bad. If it glows then reset remote, lastly open up remote and clean the finger pad on the back with alcohol gently, really gently. Look for soda , coffee etc. Good luck , be safe..

Mitsubishi WS-48511 Device Screen Will Not Go Away

Let's start with unplugging the set from the wall power for 15 minutes. This will hard reset the micro... While that's unplugged inspect the buttons on the front panel of the Tv to see that none are stuck in a pushed-in condition. Plug the unit back in, power it up and if all works okay you're back in business... If not, let try a keyboard unlock. Press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds. You won't see any on-screen changes but then try to select an input from the buttons on the front of the Tv.
After you've done these drop me a note and if we haven't solved it will try some other things..

No control of WS-65511

The following solution has been posted in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."
