TV remote will not work properly

My TV remote will turn the TV on and off but it will not perform any other funcions. I can not get to the device menu to connect to the DVD player. I have checked the DVD player and it works properly in other TV in the house and i have PIPed devices and it showes the picture for the DVD player but only on half of the screen. After several tries of the remote not responding, the TV will just turn off by itself. Please Help.

Re: TV remote will not work properly

I have a Mitsubishi WD-52725 TV, too, and have experienced the same problems with it. My solution to the remote not responding is to push the reset button on the front of the TV (to the left of the Power button) with a paper clip and wait for the green light to stop blinking (about 1 minute). Then, turn it back on and try the remote again. Recently, my remote stopped responding when pushing certain buttons on it. I removed the batteries, and all of the little screws including the one inside the battery compartment and gently cleaned the contacts inside the remote and the circuit board with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. After putting it back together, it works fine now.

Have a proscan ps50700 that wont show the picture, will turn on but turns itself right back off. what could it be

TV Doesn't Turn On
  • Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.

    If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.

    If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."

    Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.

TV Turns Off By Itself
  • You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.

    If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.

    Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.

  • Blank Screen
  • A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.

My TV's picture is cut off at the top so that you are unable to see the top portion of what is on TV. When i use my xbox it is completely centered.

I'm sorry that the picture cuts off from top of the screen. Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper.
  • Please press the Zoom/Wide button on the remote of the TV.
  • Try connecting a different video source like DVD player or VCR and check the operation.
  • If it works with another device, the issue might be with the input device currently.
  • Also try connecting the device to a different port in the TV if no other devices are available.
  • Perform a power resetting and check the operation. To perform the power resetting, unplug the TV from wall outlet for more than 2 minutes and then reconnect it.

If the issue persists, after all above troubleshooting steps, service may be required. You can click hear to setup a service for the TV.

This morning when I manually turned on my TV, it turned on as usual, but the device screen was on and the TV was cycling through the devices. I turned off everything and restarted the TV. Now the device...

YES, you may have a bad micro switch on the front keyboard. There is a fairly simple way to disconnect the keyboard and operate the set with the Mitsubishi remote.

Let me know if you want to know how to do it.

It requires only removing six screws and you do not have to pull the set out----access will be from the front of the set.

REGARDS,sd tech

Picture and sound go out and remote isn't working properly

Take the original Mitsubishi remote and remove the batteries. Install new fresh batteries and then try to operate the set. Do not try to use any of the inputs that are active. Just check menu funtions with the mits remote. All kinda irrational stuff happens when multiple and universal remotes get involved. If this a model remote that has a selector switch at the top for choosing tv/sat/vcr, etc make sure it's on tv.

Problem with device menu & remote

Remove the front trim plate below the manual switches, may have to remove the speaker covers to access this area, remove the switch mounting plate 3 screws, turn switches over and unplug the little white electrical connection for the switches. TV should work perfect with the remote now. Not sure what is wrong with the switches just yet, but suspect a resistor problem.

I have a Philips 15" LCD HDTV with no picture, but sound. How can I get the picture back. I don't have any audio or video connected, nor do I want any connected. The Model # is 15PF5120.


KIndly check antenna/cable connections. Are they properly secured to the TV’s ANT75ω plug? If they are then :
• Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
• Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels.
• Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected.
• If using an accessory device, be sure that it is functioning properly.
• If in PC Mode, a video signal MUST BE present or the TV will turn off.

If this does not work then reset to the original factory settings by performing the following steps:

  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.
  2. Press the CURSOR DOWN button to highlight the INSTALL menu, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  3. Press the CURSOR DOWN button repeatedly to highlight the FACTORY RESET control, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  4. Press CURSOR DOWN to select “YES” to reset the original factory settings.
  5. Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Device Menu not working

Could have a stuck button or a corrupt e-prom, but lets try kicking this set in the head, Now these reset codes are model dependent so this code will not work for every set out there but this reset is for the WD-62525. with the set on and with the original TV remote hit the keys in this sequence, MENU-2-4-7-0 this will bring up a service menu, the cruiser should already be on "Initialize" so simply hit enter. this will reset the TV to factory defaults and may fix your problem

TV Remote will not work

I was told that there is a short in the power supply, which needs to be built back up. The estimate for repair is $450. Is this reasonable? Thanks.
