In the menu, go to autoprogram.

If this doesn't work, try reseting your tv by one of these options:
1. leave unplugged overnight
2. press and hold power button for 10 seconds
3. try holding up and down volume buttons at same time for 10 seconds.
It is most likely your power supply or mabey even system board. Either way about couple hundred dollars easily

Mitsubishi wd62526 tv has a passcode on it that i dont know ;so is there a way to change it or reset it


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip Lock menus. If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your passcode. This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the TV remote control at the same time, when your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV. When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode. Press HOME to exit the menu.

Bypassing Front Button Lock If you have misplaced the remote control, you can bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front panel for more than 8 seconds

I HAVE A MITSUBISHI (MEDALLION MODEL TV).THE V-CHIP IS ON AND I CANT RELEASE THE V-CHIP BECAUSE A CODE IS NEEDED. IS THERE AN OVERRIDE CODE THAT CAN BE USED TO CLEAR THE VCHIP?


Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit code for a V-Chip locked program, view a locked TV, cancel the lock, or to enter the V-Chip lock menus. You can view the locked shows on the TV set by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your code is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV and asks you to enter a new code.
