Devices do not display visual or audio input, just a blue screen.
The TV displays a blue screen instead of the normal picture. This is the exact same thing that happens when the device is off. However, the device is correctly plugged in and on. This problem exists for every device plugged into the TV, including a DirecTV box, DVD player, and an XBox 360.
The tv had been having some display issues recently, but these would fix themselves by simply switching the device menu back and forth. We have tried the manual system reset on the front of the tv, to no avail.

You need a repairman. These sets have a bunch of small capacitors that fail on these sets. There is more than one board with this problem. Do your homework and find a good reputable repair shop to fix this for you. It's not something the average person can do. Sorry for the news. Not a simple fix. Mistubishi has a problem with capacitors and it's been this way for more than 20 years. It's ALWAYS bad capacitors that cause Mitsubishi's to fail.

It appears you have a faulty notebook. This can happen if the notebook come from the same batch of units that could be faulty. I suggest you return the notebook to the store and get it fixed under warranty.
If you are talking about the words spoken on the TV program being displayed on the TV screen as text, then this feature is called CLOSED CAPTIONING.
Most remote controls have a button called CC, or CAPTION, or INFO, or DISPLAY which will allow you to disable the CLOSED CAPTIONING feature.
Otherwise you may have to select the MAIN MENU option for your set and go into the AUDIO OPTONS or FEATURES menu. If you can find the Closed Caption settings in there, then just disable them there by setting them to OFF.
If you can provide the exact brand and model number of your TV, then we can certainly provide you with more specific instructions on how to disable that feature on your particular set.
If you have a cable or satellite set top box, then also make sure that the Closed Captioning is not being generated by that device instead of by your TV. Make sure the Closed Captioning is disabled on that set top device as well if applicable.

It is unlikely that you will be able to solve this issue. This is due to the way a digital TV works.
The output from your VCR is an analogue signal - a constantly varying electrical signal carrying information about the picture. This is interspersed with a synchronisation signal that tells the TV where the start of each frame begins within the stream. With me so far?
When you fast-forward a tape, two things happen: the sync signals appear faster than expected and bars of static noise appear across the picture (I won't go into the technical details as to why!)
On an old analogue TV this isn't an issue - The way they work means that they will display some sort of picture. In other words, whatever signal is coming in (no matter how corrupted) it will show it on the screen.
Digital TVs are different. They have to read all the information for each frame and process it before it is displayed. When you fast-forward the tape (and the sync signals are at the wrong speed and interspersed with noise) a digital TV gets 'confused' - It cannot make sense of the signal, so ignores it, acting as if there is no signal at all (hence the blue screen).
Most VCRs are designed to retain enough of the signal that some sort of picture can be displayed while fast-forwarding. However, because you are recording in LP mode (which effectively halves the normal speed of the tape and also reduces the quality of the recording) there just isn't enough information in what is left for a digital TV to recognise as a 'proper' signal.
Your only option is to revert back to SP mode, or treat yourself to a new digital recorder :-)
I had the exact problem...tried a number of things that did not work. My dog "ate" my original remote. After reading your solution I took the universal remote that was programmed to work with the tv and tried holding down each button for a few seconds hoping that one would work like the display button on the original remote. It worked.
I have a GE universal remote and the menu/info button worked for me. Again, you need to hold it in for a couple of seconds. Thanks for the help and I hope my added solution helps other people. Claudia in Minnesota
