Mitsubishi WS-65815 Not Responding to Remote or Front Panel

Hi, I have a projection TV model WS-65815. It does not respond to remote control or front panel. I have tried unplugging and plugging it back in. The light flashes normally (fast for 70 sec.) and I can hear the fan working fine as well, but it still does not respond. I have tried the reset button also. I held the device and menu buttons for 5 seconds to display an error code (if any) and it gave back a code 12 which means no error was detected. I have taken a look at the circuit board, but do not see any visible issues with the capacitors or anything else out of place. I find it strange that it was working fine one night and the next day it would not turn on at all. The problems started when the TV would freeze when I pushed the Device button on the remote control to try to put a DVD on. The sound would continue playing on the channel I had it on, but the screen froze until I turned the TV set off and turned it back on. The menu did not display at all. It simply froze the instant I would push the Device button. Any suggestion as to what it could be, or is it really necessary to take to a technician? It is a heavy TV and difficult to transport about 20+ miles to the nearest repair technician. I also do not want to end up paying more for repair than a completely new TV.

Check owner / operator manual for "panel lock" selection or
go through menu pages until you spot it........
This selection is made so guests or children cannot operate tv.
In case this suggestion fails, you might try hard reset = unplug
AC cord overnight,then try again...........T.

SOURCE: green power light will not stop flashing and tv will not turn on or off

You need to replace the 1000uf capacitors on the DM board thats the classic symptom of the DM caps being bad the light continues to blink repeatedly. If you need more info on the repair let me know.

SOURCE: My Mitsubishi WS-65511 won't turn on.

I have had my WS-65511 fail like this, first at 4 years, second 2 weeks later, then 3rd time yesterday (4/14/2009). In past, the tech replaced a thermal sensor p/n 299P313010A (but Mitsubishi says that part is not for WS-65511 and that it does not have a thermal sensor - go figure). It is a white rectangle with about 30 pins in 2 rows and is soldered onto a board in the TV. List price is about $25. Might be your problem.

62HM15 Toshiba DLP TV won't respond to remote or control panel


Blinking is a trouble code. Try unpluging for a longer time then hold power button in when pluging back in to try and reset.

Clean/Tweak Rear-Projection MIT WS-65815


There are really only two things that need to be done for service on this set.

FIRST: with the set unplugged remove the back cover and wipe the three large black lens----a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it works fine.

SECOND: WITH the original remote go into the customer menu and select convergence--select the advanced menu and use the remote to adjust--there will be instructions on screen to tell you what to do.

Some people pay 50 or more for a house call when for the most part it is a do it yourself thing.


Let me know if you have questions--I do this kind of work in my area----15 job.

TV is not responding to the remote control.


The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.

Tv wont respond because device menu is changing through each device


I had a similar problem: my WS-55511 would not respond to the remote and the front control buttons (with the exception of Power) cycled through the Device Menu. I solved this problem by disconnecting the front panel. Here's how to do it: 0. Unplug the TV
1. Remove the speaker grill from the front by pulling forward: there are no screws. 2. Disconnect the two cables that are exposed after the grill is removed. 3. Plug the TV back in, wait for 5 minutes to reset. 4. Try using the remote.  Hope this helps!

Tv won't power on ws-65511


This forum is pretty dead. Anyways the technician came and disconnected the wires running to front control panel ( where the buttons are). And now the TV works with the remote. Apparently the front pannel had shorted.

Details: He moved the grill on top of the speakers. You will see two sets of wires running from the bottom of unit to the front control pannel. These wires are joined by clips. Just disjoin the wires at the clip.

No control from the remote control


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.

Won't power up


This model has had problems with the keyboard buttons on the front panel,causing them not to work and canceling out the remote operation. To verify this,you need to remove the front panel so you can access the connector on the keyboard pc board and unplug the connector.After doing this,see if the remote control is able to turn on the tv (wait for it to power up because with the connector off, the green power light will be disconnected and will not light up when the tv is on) If the tv works, than you will need to change the ten individual switches on the board - part# 432P089010 (or just use the remote only)
