Re: ever since I hooked up my tv it turned on by it self...

It's time to bite the bullet and take it to the shop... Could be tac switches, or problems with the jungle IC, micro or eprom. You'll need some testing with a scope to determine which... Good Luck Bill

We lost the remote and we are trying to hook up our Wii to the front panel box. How do we change the input to the front panel without the remote

On the side of the TV there are a set of buttons. An Input button is next to the Menu button and will let you access the different sources connected to the TV. For the front panel input, look for the source labeled Front. (There are also volume control and channel +/- buttons.) The button order is Input, Menu, Vol -, Vol +, Ch -, Ch +.

If you want, you can get a substitute remote that is guaranteed to match the original remote's features here: .

I hope this wants.

What is FPA lock? It is turned on and I don't know how

That is Front Panel Access lock. There are diferent ways to unlock Tv depending on the model:
- Hold down menu on the remote and volume down on the TV itself at the same time for a least 5 secs. The Tv wont say so but it will be unlocked.
-Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 5 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked.
-Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU
on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 5 seconds.
-Hold down EJECT onthe front of the TV and menu button on the remote at the same time for 5 secs.

Good Day; 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/device 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 INDICATE X-RAY. CHECK FOR A SHORTED IC5A03 PART # 270P704010 AND AN OPEN R5A73 82K ¼ WATT OFF PIN 2 OF IC5A02 ON THE MAIN PCB. 2. SELF DIAGNOSIS ERROR INDICATES SHORT PROTECT. CHECK FOR OPEN FUSES F9A04 AND F9A05 PART # 283P043090 ON THE +24 AND -24 VOLT LINES. IF THE FUSES ARE OPEN THE CONVERGENCE OUTPUT CIRCUIT WOULD BE SUSPECT. 3. SELF-DIAGNOSIS INDICATES SHORT PROTECT. CHECK FOR A SHORTED IC4B01 PART # 270P261020 (VERTICAL OUTPUT) LOADING 24-VOLT SUPPLY LINE. LOCATED ON THE MAIN PCB. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Cant turn off panasonic PIP

To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.

My dad and I fixed the TV/Video problem over the weekend using one of the solutions suggested. Make sure you stay away from the red wire running from the back of the tube to the circuit board.

1. Take the cover off the back of the TV.
2. On the bottom of the TV is a circuit board that is mounted on top of a plastic tray. Remove the cables running from the speakers by squeezing the tab on the white plug and pulling them up and off the board.
3. Looking at the back of the TV, pull the board+tray out (barely secured in there) and flip it 180 degrees so you're looking at the front of the board.
4. Desolder and remove the TV/Video push button. It's labeled on the PCB, and should be the second button in from the left.
5. Place the tray back in the TV and make sure the other buttons still remaining on the baord are aligned with the buttons on the front of the TV.
6. Put the cover back and you're done.

TV works as good as new again. Of course I can't use the TV/Video button on the TV itself, but the remote handles that fine. 20 minutes max, and no repairman needed.

Speaker off

You will need an original Mitsubishi remote. The original remotes usually have 3 large oval buttons labeled Audio (up and down), Adjust (up and down) and Video (up and down). Pressing the Audio button will bring up the usual Bass, Treble, Balance... and Speakers Off. When you see those words press the Adjust button and the speakers will switch to On. Some sets have the Audio, Adjust and Video buttons behind a little door on the front of the set, so check there first and if not, get an original remote.
