First, you have to set your Blu-Ray player to output 1080i (the highest resolution that the Mitsubishi WS-55511 can support). Then you hook up the player via component to the DTV component input on your set (it's the only input that can handle 480i/p and 1080i).

Its a very old set and if happens on all inputs and cables have been ruled out something serious--the rear inputs bypass the tuner in the set and based on its age I would not suggest spending major money (if you can find someone willing to work on a set of this age) on this set.
See if oyu can buy a HDMI selector box, does the sound system have a dvd player in it? IF so I would go with S-video instead of hdmi, save the HDMI for the blue ray player. What is the very first item you have listed up there? PAnasonic what? LEt me know, hope this helps.
DVI = HDMI without the audio connectors. So basically you need to connect your audio in some different way, PS3s allow you to keep your video signal as HDMI and change the Audio signal to component, so that is one way or doing it, not sure if the blue ray players allow you to do this though.
I sent instructions in my last post to you, if you cant find it let me know and I will pull up the specific model for your set and try to help you locate it. And thanks I enjoy helping people with their sets I have been doing this over 25 years and still enjoy working with electronics.
Everything is worth fixing provided the price is right. However, in this case it's probably not cost effective to repair the unit. Start with the easier fixes, such as bulbs, etc. Even then, some of the components can be quite expensive, or simply unavailable. I would suggest getting a quote from a local repair shop in order to make an informed decision before you get to far into it. You could end up spending just as much to repair it as you would on a new unit.
I would strongly suggest to use the funds towards a new TV. It's most of the time a domino effect between service of your set and the next issue. Generally, once there is a problem sometimes it can set off a ray of other problems.
I'd suggest to go with a newer technology. Invest in something current like DLP or even LCD flat panels are great due to no burn in, and much more affordable then they used to be.
Another thing to be aware of is that by febuary 2009 everything is going to be all digital. What does that mean to you? Or your current rear projection set? It means that you would have to invest in an expensive converter box that would switch the signal from analog to digital in order to get any signal.
That is why you see an enormous drop in digital display prices within the past years or so, plus lots of online companies going out of business because they cant afford to compete with electronics anymore.
I hope this helps. After seeing plenty of TV issues within my 7yrs of experience in selling digital displays online...I think this is a much better route to go!
Take care and good luck!
