Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

Format stuck on Mitsubishi WS-55511 Rear Projection TB

Help! I know I shouldn't keep the format of the screen on 10801 standard because of the gray sidebars and burning those images into the screen. My format on my WS-55511 Mitsubishi rear projection TV is stuck on standard format and I can't get it to go widescreen, stretched, or any other way. I have tried shutting it off and turning everything all back on, but to no avail. Restarting it all and unplugging everything didn't set it back to default or anything. I have got to get my format to work so I can see widescreen, etc. Any suggestions? The Woodster

Re: Format stuck on Mitsubishi WS-55511 Rear Projection...

Normallly, if the format button on the remote does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

How do i reset my mitsubishi television model#ws-55511

First a reset may not help unless I know what your problem is.

If model listed (WS-55511) IS CORRECT: set has 3 hidden menus:

Option Menu (hard reset of all settings to factory)
Technical Menu (Adjustments for various things)
Convergence Menu for adjusting convergence.

THESE ARE NOT ACCESSED FROM CUSTOMER MENU. Each requires Mitsubishi remote and a 4 digit code .......

So, What is your issue with the set?

I have the codes but it depends on model number and what problem with set is, reset is in Option menu but will not cure all problems.

Returning to "streched" picture as top of heads

Remote control is needed to change aspect ratio. The button on the remote is labeled format. Standard definition sources have six picture sizes and HD has two.

Mitsubishi ws 55311 format issues

Apparently I did not have the correct remote to go with this television. The remote I had was a Mitsubishi, but I was able to obtain one that had the 'format' button.

Picture doesn't fit screen

If you haven't tried to change the format yet, try that first. Most of these tv's have a wide range of options from full to wide to split etc. Stretch would probably work in most hd formats.
