How to take base stand off

The should from 4 to 6 screws near where the base & tv come together. They are either #2 phillips or torx(t-20 or t-25) screws. Unscrew and the base pulls out straight down.

My 52" mitsubishi Model LT-52151 has sound no picture

Wow. There could be several causes for that. This model does have some history of main board failures after a few years of use, but let's hope it's simpler than that.

We'll start by assuming that the symptom shows up on a cable or satellite feed. Have you also tried playing a DVD? If so and you get a picture, the problem is not with the TV -- it's with your cable feed, the cable box, or the connections between the box and your TV.

Check the cable equipment first. I'm guessing that other sets in your house do get a picture, and that therefore the cable feed is good. If that's true, check the box connected to the Mitsubishi. To do so, pull its power plug out of the wall and wait a couple of minutes, then plug it back in. (It will take a minute or two to restart, and the program guide will be empty for a couple of minutes more.)

If that doesn't bring back the picture, the problem is either the wiring to the TV or something inside the set. We'll start with the wiring.

Assuming you're using HDMI cables (single wire with one rectangular plug at either end), try unplugging and replugging them at both ends. These connections sometimes become loose, and doing this will restore the connection. If that works, go buy new HDMI cables -- yours may be getting tired and should be replaced.

Some cable companies routinely use the old, less efficient component cables (5 wires, with 5 round plugs at each end) to hook up TVs. If you have them, just make sure they aren't loose in their sockets.

If that does not correct the problem the chances are your set has an internal failure, either on the main circuit board or in the display section. Try disconnecting the power to the TV for a minute (pull the plug). Sometimes this resets the main board on this model and it begins to work again.

Otherwise you'll need professional service, which can be expensive. It's possible the backlight on the display is gone, which is not that pricey an item. But circuit boards can be expensive, and labor costs mount up quick. So don't commit to getting the TV repaired until you find out how much it will cost, even if you have to pay to get an estimate. Your set is around 5 to 6 years old, and given the price of a new TV, you may find out that it doesn't make sense to fix the old one.

Good luck.

Green light stays on when trying to turn off tv. picture go's off when cable remote is used but green light stays onand you can see that screen is still on?

You need to set up the cable box remote for your TV , now you are just turning off the cable box. Some cable boxes have a switched plug on the back that will turn on and off with the box. If yours has the switched receptacle you can use that to turn the TV on and off by plugging your TV into the switched receptacle. Make sure the TV power is on, the receptacle will kill the power so the clock on the TV wont work. Otherwise you need to set the code for your TVs remote and use the system power button.

Connecting to basic cable

I just bought an RCA TV and was ready to throw it out the window. Spent 2 days trying to set it up asking RCA 5 times for help and went online and still couldn't solve my problem.

If you are connecting your TV to a cable box, your channels are already there so you do not have to scan for channels.

Hello. I was in a live session with you earlier and it seems like you accidentally closed the window. Does the tv tv click on momentarily before it shuts off and starts blinking?

How can I hook up 2005 Mitsubishi LT-3780D with cable TV? Because in the back of TV looks more like computer's monitor, I can not connect it with a cable cord.,

Your LT-3780 LCD is only one part of a two-part television system. The LCD is the "monitor" and the HD-4001 "Media Center" is where the inputs and outputs are for the television. The HD-4001 was included with the LT-3780. They are connected together with an HDMI cable and a Serial Cable for communications. If you don't have the HD-4001, you can connect your cable box or DVD player directly to the LT-3780 with an HDMI cable. You will not have any means to connect more than one device at a time, as this feature was performed by the media center. You will also be unable to connect any S-Video, Composite, or Component devices, as these connections are only on the back of the Media Center.
