Hitachi volume bar always on, remote doesn't work

8 years old. Get picture but volume bar always displayed at 0. Can get it to run up but then runs down. Remote no longer works. Panel buttons don't work except off and channel, input doesnt but effects volume bar which again goes back to zero.

Four hour unplug doesn't change anything.

    Exactly the issue. Seems my sons friends gave it a beer to drink. Cleaned up its face nicely but the control panel was completely corroded. Nice call!

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture

The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    Mitsubishi ws65711-Volume bar always displays/remote not working

    Just solved my problem. Found out that the down volume button must have been sticking. Tapped on it a number of times and finally the volume bar went off and then the up volume worked fine. Looks like the down volume button on front panel is intermittently getting stuck. This happened last year but went away before I could figure it out. Maybe going to try and blow some compressed air in button socket.

    HCM4215W 42 in. Rear Projection Television

    When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.
