Question about Televison & Video
Yesterday I hooked up a new qwest modem and a slingbox. I plugged them both into my linksys wireless router. I also plugged my playstation 3 into this router.
I have my playstation3 and my dishnetwork dvr 622 connected to a onkyo receiver.
The slingbox is connected to the router and the dvr. (it slings video from my dish to computer via the internet). The slingbox is working fine, but I noticed the "green" after I plugged in the s-video and red/white composite connections from my dvr to my slingbox. (I cannot swear that it wasn't green before then however).
I've also noticed that my internet connection keeps getting dropped. I'm not sure is this is qwest or my wireless router.
I did run the "magic color" on my hitachi TV and can get all the colors without problem. This is why I don't think it is the TV but am unsure. I'm thinking it may be the router since I keep loosing connection, but would this effect the color of my TV? the other options would be the slingbox, dvr or the receiver. Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot. I can connect a dvd directly to the tv and that would r/o the receiver. I also could connect my laptop directly to the qwest modem to see if I still loose connections.
I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.

Bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode, then press in sequence :
Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )
The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.
Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )
Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.
Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "S H Pos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Press the menu bottom to drop out of the menus, and the standby button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone.

ok, you have more than 1 post for this set--this model uses two of the STK-392-110 OR 392-150 Convergence chips.
If magic focus will not adjust the picture both chips need to be replaced--about 13 dollars in parts if purchased on Ebay.
Green is not offered to be adjusted since it determines the geometry of the picture--red and blue are adjusted to it.
Let me know how much skill you have and I can tell you how to fix the set--it requires two things--getting at the chips and being able to unsolder and replace them--there may or may not also be some resistors around them that are now bad and need to be replaced.
most shops get 300 or more for this repair--total parts cost if you are able to do it yourself is under 30 dollars.
If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.
