Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

We lost our main remote for our projection tv in a move.

We are not able to get the screen to move to widescreen without it. Is there a replacement remote available or can it be done with the small remote? We have not been able to fix it with the small remote, but perhaps you know a way.

. You CAN purchase an aftermarket remote. I would look for one that has all the features you need, PIP, screen format etc.... I have found that the Sony RM-VL600 works real well with my Mitsubishi TV... kids thrashed the remotes more than once...
This particular unit has system control PROGRAMABLE buttons on the bottom row. I've been able to program them for formatting the screen, setting audio and video... Solved my issue of needing a factory remote.

This was a reasonable price as well.

How to turn off closed captioning on my 32mf301b f7 magnavox tv without a remote?


You have to have a remote to do so. You may be able to purchase a universal remote and do the same thing.

I lost my remote during a move and can't change formats on my tv


You are going to need an original Mitsubishi remote--I do not think in the main menu there is a way to do this without the remote: PART NUMBER FOR THIS REMOTE IS: 290P111010


Almost any Mitsubishi remote that has the FORMAT button on it will work.

Zoom control


Use the menu key on the set it has a size selection in the menu set it on widescreen or 16:9 I suggest buying a new original remote as even a new RCA universal remote may not have the ZOOM or aspect control on them.

Does this tv have a remote


I saw the LXI tv indicated on the other post to Slinteriors (I mainly fix computer screens not tvs). As far as I know LXI tvs has remote.
If you lost it you can use an universal remote with the following codes for LXI: 000, 013, 018, 021, 023, 054.
Alternatively you can buy one from this website, as they claim they have a replacement remote for your model , complete the form on this link with your details.
I think a replacement remote will cost between $40 and $50.

RCA R52WH73 Problem


Unfortunately the functions you require are only available via the remote. Also a replacement remote isn't cheap averaging about $85-150 each and most of the time RCA only supplies universal replacements that only cover the basic function of the origional.

Format stuck on Mitsubishi WS-55511 Rear Projection TB


Normallly, if the format button on the remote does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
