Can't change channels!!!!

Gets good picture and sound. got it 2 days ago worked fine programed a 1for all remote and one hour later the remote or the buttons on the front of the tv stopped working. just stays on, and on one channel unless i unplug it, but as soon as i plug it in it turns back on the same channel. cant put it on channel 3 or any video source because the buttons or remote dont work if you can help that would be great.

Re: Can't change channels!!!!

Take the batteries out of the check if you can change channels manually on the big screen. if so the remote is stuck on one signal that channel u said. get a new remote. if still same trouble on big screen look hard at the buttons and make sure none are jammed. also try to get to your setup menu and auto-program the channels it should search everything and then try changing channels. new stuff alot times plugs come loose, goes back to the factory workers...not pushing them tight have a tech check that at your home.

My Mitsubishi vs-60603 projection tv has only a blue screen but I have sound. When I go to menu, the picture is in upper corner but picture is only blue when not in menu

Lol sounds like you tripped the pic in pic option.. the blue screen would probably be the feed from dvd or one of the other input options . Good luck I did that years ago and it took me forever to get out off... and a case of beer later... I think it had something to do with the pvc button on the remote.... stands for preview channel. so you could watch one and keep an eye on the other

Distrorted Picture on all Analog Channels, HDMI and PIP Picture is fine.

Sounds like a bad DLP chip and they will prob end up replacing the light engine in the set most people dont like replacing this part. Hopefully they get you up and running.
