Mitsubishi. Why won't it turn on?


Look for the reset button on the front panel. It's a tiny hole you can press with a straightened paper clip wire. Push it at the same time the power button is pushed and then release the paperclip. The TV should come on.

On the back of your box you should have Video and Audio output jacks. If you are using those now then you will have to go Best Buy ect.... and get ( 2 ) RCA Y adapters. ( single male, double female ) The single male will plug into the L audio out and the other single male into the R audio out. The cables that used to be in those will plug into 1 each of the female end. Now take your audio cables from you surround sound and plug them into the other female ends, then connect the cable to your surround sound Audio In and that's it. OH, don't do anything with the video cable.

If your not using the jacks on the back of the box then just plug your surround sound cables into the Left and Right audio Out of the box and your done. Don't forget, what ever station your watching on the box is what you'll hear from the surround snd.

Broken coax connection on back of unit


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

Red Lamp Light


The problem lies in the heat sensor that sits just inside the lamp housing area inside your set. Apparently the technician fix is to clip the faulty connector Mitsubishi used when assembling the set and replace it with a soldered connection instead. My fix is simpler and does not require solder. My TV is a 57831 model so it may differ from others but not much if so. Here is what I did.

1.) Remove the two screws holding the lamp door to the set in the back lower right corner of your set.
2.) Follow the set instruction for removing the lamp assembly. it should be unplugged for an hour prior to doing this.
3.) Once assembly is removed, grab your flashlight (if necessary) and look inside the housing. You should see a white rectangular shaped piece attached to the outer frame edge of the opening. Looking straight on, it is located in the upper left corner of the square opening and is held in place by one small phillips head screw. This screw is inserted and installed from the opposite direction and will require the short screwdriver to remove. Carefully remove it and don't drop inside the set!
4.) To make room to move around and do what you'll need to do, you will also need to partially remove the back cover of the set. Mine was limited to just the lower half and was held in place by nearly 20 screws. You don't need to remove all of them but do need to be able to open up the rear enough to access the connecter that sits on top of the upper left edge of the lamp housing. If you follow the two yellow wires from the white sensor, they track back to a small black connector with two black wires on the other side of it.
5.) At this point, you have removed the screw to the sensor. Now you will need to pull the connector wires free from the routing clip on top to free up space for the wire to move freely. Once these two black wires are pulled from the clip, pull the white sensor down from it's position to free it from it's housing and allow the yellow wires to be pulled from the left side of the housing out. If done right, the sensor is free now and can be pulled carefully by the connector at top and out the back of the set.
6.) Squeeze the clip connection where necessary and pull the clip assembly apart. The sensor is now free of the TV entirely and you can work with it separately.
7.) Grab a nail file and work the connector pins a little to roughen the contact points a bit. This is similar to cleaning the contact posts on your car battery.
8.) Push the male end of the clip firmly into the female end until it clicks and then push a little harder to be sure good contact is made.
9.) Do the reverse as done above to put it all back together again and power up!
10.) The message should now be gone.

IF YOU FIND IT IS IN FACT LOW YOU'LL NEED TO REPLACE THE 6 CAPACITORS THAT YOU WILL FIND HAVE AGED (THEY LOOK BUBBLED) THAT ARE ON THE POWER BD. GOOD LUCK. JOE TV

Coaxial input jack on the TV broken off so I cannot connect my coaxial cable from wall


If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.
