Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv works perfect, remote wont work on tv only but will on amp etc

I have a Mitsubishi WS-55511. While watching it, the screen went black for 10 sec. and then came back.. no big deal but now the remote wont work on the tv only! It works for everything else and I can still turn on and off the tv at the unit itself... like it lost the code between the remote and tv only... any suggestions?

    Ok. I unplugged it but now it also went crazy last night since I posted my original question. It started going to a fuzz screen like thousands of black ants and the loud shhhhhhhhhh sound..... It would be fine 5 sec, then ants for 3, fine for 5... then ants for 2... that went on for 5 minutes and then went completely to the ants on all channels..... shhhhhhhhhhhh..... I like my TV and cant afford an upgrade right now but I was kinda looking for a reason to spend what we dont have... kid on the way... I'll fix it if I can but I have to ask, are the new flat screens limited life-span? Anyway, I have heard alot about glass tubes.. is that something I can fix myself?

    1) when you plug unit back in to ac power..

    if green led on front of set is flashing rapidally..

    wait for a few minutes till led stops flashing

    **on board micro computer has to boot up and run..set may not work correctly**

    2) try switching to another input

    from your discription could be that tuner

    went dead..ants and raspie sound like no

    antenna or cable is hooked to set

    3) do you have cust menus

    if so..try another video source on other video a vcr,,dvd..

    also..if tuner is dead..and you use a cable box..

    cable box has video and audio outputs..hook to video inputs

    if this works..

    then you just use set like a big monitor..with cable box..

    if you don't use cable..sub vcr for tuning channels on antenna for cable

    4)....if this does not work seek professional help tv shop

    ps..just ideas for you to try.. :.)

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.

First thing to try is to press the reset button on the front of the TV. This forces a system reset.

Will not power on. Please Help!!

Error code 12 means normal operation. On these models we have found that a switch is sticking on the control panel not allowing the set to turn on. Disconnect the control panel. You will be able to use the remote on it. To find the plugs for the control panel: Remove the speaker grill and front panel, then follow the wire to the connection. Remember to unplug the set before putting your hands inside of it. Tell me how it went. Lead Tech
