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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Many times a computer's post screens will not show up a TV set, and once the computer itself has loaded the drivers and settings, the set may need to be shut off and turned back on for the HDNI or PC signal to be detected.
It is also possible the settings you selected for display properties cannot be displayed on the TV.
As far as the component video signal, are the connections correct? Sometimes people mistake the composite red, white and yellow for the composite system that divides the red, blue and green video signals.
While also possible, but rare- there may be poorly soldered connections on the "A&D" board (logic board) .
If you tried the yellow composite cable "in every single hole" it wasn't exactly 'exactly' following the manual then, was it?
Are you using component cabels, too (red, green and blue). Mis-wiring them will give you B/W or other wierd visuals.
Your TV's inputs and what is selected by the TV's controls would determine which cables' input it display. You could prove whether the composite is the culprit by removing it while viewing the TV. If the picture goes away, THAT cable is carrying the video you're watching. Otherwise, maybe you need to select the component input and check the conenction of each wire while watching.
There should be a button on your TV remote that will be called "Display" or "P in P".
The display button usually displays which input you have selected, such as: SAT for Satellite; AV1, AV2, AV3 or AV4 - depending on how many inputs your TV has, to plug in devices like a VCR or DVD recorder/player.
Otherwise, if you have a more sophisticated TV, it could be that you have accidentally pressed the "P in P" button, that selects the Picture in Picture mode. If you have done this, your TV will display the main picture of the input you have selected, plus another input, (such as SAT or AV1 or AV2 etc. as I've mentioned above). If the AV1 or AV2, etc. input is not active (not switched on) then that input will only display a blank (black) picture in the top left corner of the screen.
Hope this helps...
1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on. 2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV display, including the power cable. 3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower, right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV display is in power save mode. 4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test one device at a time. 6 Connect another device that you know is working properly. 7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.
Problem Possible Solution No sound
1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on the remote control turns the mute function on and off. 2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see "Input Select Menu" on page 24). 3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors match the connectors colors. 4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors. 5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For example, if you are using the composite connector on the bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors. After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example, if you are experiencing the problem using a composite connector, try using the component connector. NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the appropriate cables for that connector. See your device documentation for a list of supported connections. After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 7 Test the device on a different TV.
Good Day, lngaLi;
A snowy picture indicates the you don't have a signal. Let's determine if it's the TV or not;
1). Reset; TV, Cable/Sat BOX, AT&T, and etc.for 3 to 5 minutes. (To reset unplug ALL devices from the wall A/C outlet.)
2). Use a Video Input instead of the TV's tuner (antenna) input.
3). Call service provider.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
First, have you doublechecked the video hookup? It sounds like you are using the video/audio inputs to the TV, so make sure you have VCR video out cabled to TV video input, and the TV source/input selection set to that input (video 1 etc.).
If this checks out, check for a dirty video head on the VCR, though a dirty head usually results in a blank or blue video display (older VCRs, snow).
You could do a process of elimination by hooking VCR to a different TV and see what is displayed then.
Lastly, I assume you've tried multiple tapes, just in case a home recorded tape was incorrectly recorded?
