This problem just started happening a few days ago. When I turn the receiver on and if the TV input is selected, I get a display message saying "Ck Speaker Wire" and then the unit shuts itself off. What I do net get is that if I have the input selector on Tuner or CD, the receiver is fine and does not shut off. Any thoughts/solutions? Thanks!

Re: Receiver Shuts Off Only When TV Input Is Used
I think your Receiver is going into protection mode. This happens especiaally when speaker cables are not connected properly. They are either loose or are touching each other or to the body of the receiver or the speaker ha blown.
You are lucky that it has not blown any transistor of your Receiver.
Please immidiately disconnect all your speakers cables and the cable form the mian.
Reconnect only the cable from the main and try to select the TV, it will switch on. If it switch on then you can be sure it were the speaker cables.
Now power off, main cable off, put all the speaker cables back and see if the everything all right.
If you still have a problem, let me know we can futher trouble shoot.
Best of Luck.

Based on your description, it is possible that the power supply is starting to go. Before doing anything, first check to see if it is the TV or the source. Use a few different sources to narrow down the problem. You didn't mention what type of hookup you used from the receiver to the TV. Assuming you are using HDMI, it is possible that the cable is intermittent. Try using a different one. Also try as below. 1. Once the TV is working with sound, what happens if you turn the TV off and then back on, is the sound still there? 2. Use the TV antenna input to see if you can replicate the problem using an antenna. If the problem is indeed the TV, it should do the same with the antenna.
A blue screen with "No Signal" is usually related to a video problem. The TV may be getting changed off the correct input/channel, or the video cable might be going bad.
If you have a spare, I would recommend a different cable and seeing if that fixes the problem. If it continues, verify the input/channel your TV is on when it receives a picture and if it goes out try putting it back on that input/channel.
If problems still continue I would be happy to review additional options with you. You can reach me here or at email@example.com
Hi, I am sorry you are having a problem with your DISH video. A blue screen means you are on the correct channel or input on your TV. If you turn the Tv off and then back on, ehat channel ot input does it say it is on. You should be on channel 3 if at TV1 or 60 or 73 if at TV2. If the receiver is connected to the TV using the Red/ White/Yellow cables, then the TV needs to be set to a video input. If you any additional assistance, please email me directly. Thank you!

I am having the exact same issue. It started happening within the first few hours of turning on the XBR9 for the first time. I also have a Motorola box from Comcast. This did not happen with the HD TV that was hooked up previously. Did you return the TV?
Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.
Good thing the tv is under warranty, theres no magical fix for a problem like this. I would either return it to the store or call for service. If you atempt to do to much to fix it you might voide the warranty, and you should have to do anything to fix it as you said its 3 days old.
I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.
All you have to do is to do a factory reset on everything, but I thing mostly on your 605, but I would do it on the TV as well. I think what had happened is after I set everything up for the first time, it worked great. As the days when on I started to play with all of the futures the 605 and the TV had to offer. I was turning them on and off to see what everything did. What I think I did was, I turned on something in the 605 that the TV did not know how to cope with. If I had to guess, I think it is the Lip-sink feature (Spelling?) in the 605. Anyway disconnect everything, look in your manuals of the TV and the 605 to see how to do the factory reset on both. Then turn your TV on. After it does it’s start up for the first time (again), start connecting the 605. It has been working great for me after I did this. Do not count on help from the people you bought it from or the people who made it. This stuff is so new they do not really know how to fix it.
