What do I need to do to get 1080dpi

I was told that my WS-55515 has a built in HD integrator that will produce 1080dpi for channels that are in HD. But every channel states that it is at 480dpi. How can I get 1080 out of my tv.

Re: What do I need to do to get 1080dpi

Do you have HD cable or satellite? You need to make sure that they are connected to either a DVI, HDMI or Component (Y,Pr,Pb) connection. Depends on the age of the set you made need to get the Mitsubishi adaptor for HD. And to be correct the resolutions are listed as 48i,480p,720p or 1080i. DPI is used for printing or scanning as it refers to Dots Per Inch. In television we refer to lines.

If we have an hd-ready television and we have dishnetwork hd does their box make our tv hd? Or do we have to have their magical piece of equipment to make our television hd?or tv is the WS-55315 model.

You need a HD box connected to the DTV input on the back of the set (it is marked 1080) This set has only one HD input for this---HD ready means it will work only with a box (some newer sets have a HD tuner built into them and for basic HD channels do not need a box).

Never hooked up the HD

Have you tried selecting a different input( do you have the remote?), if so have you set your input to accept HD input ( you access this thru your 'Menu" button on your remote). I run my HD input from my game console (X-Box 360) and have to select HDTV input channel (there are 2 of them along with 2 cable inputs), and have not had a problem with this at all. good luck.

Mitsubishi ws-55515 light blinking

Sounds like the remote is not programed correctly or the input sources have been changed.

Call the cable company and complain that it worked before they came and shoud work afterwards.

You will need to reset the Netcommand and tuner2.gif settings in the set.
The little indented button in the front of the set needs to be pushed in (when the set is off). The front light will blink for about a minute or minute and a half.
Then, reprogram the Netcommand settings.
This should solve your problem.
If you need more information, then, reply to this post and I will respond.

WS-55515 Loss of sound and HD blue screen

First check set for problems by:This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. Self-diagnosis error 2-3 indicating deflection failure. Check for shorted or leaky Q5A37 part # 260P818050 located on PCB-Main. If found defective replace only the transistor instead of the Main PCB.
