Question about Mitsubishi WS-65511 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote

T.V. will not turn on with remote.  When turned on manually, there is no volume control.  The channels automatically start flipping through channels lowest to highest, but you can't use the remote to control anything.  You can't manually change the channel up, only down.  You can't change the device without the remote.  It's like the t.v. doesn't recognize the remote anymore.  This all started by just trying to change the device mode to vcr, to watch a tape.

Re: tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels...

Found this in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."

Trying to program cineplus remote for panasonic dvd player

Try this as all remotes work about the for manual setting.
Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.

My zenith 52 wlcd-tv will not come on.

We had the same problem and cost 374 dollars and the remote control thing in the TV was replaced in our 52 inch projection tv (about 6 years old). Now it does not turn on with the cable remote. 2 months later now the tv (on its own starts to flip channels and the volumes goes up and down even when the all the remotes do not have batteries in them.

I have a new TV Model 47PFL3603D/F7 and am hooked up to comcast digital box and cannot figure out how to get my comcast remote to regulate the volume. I have the set on channel 3 and everything works...

Usually on a universal remote (after programmed) the volume is controlled by pressing the cable button then adjusting the volume. When you turn your tv on by pressing tv power---then flipping through the channels by pressing cable--channel up or down. The remote (in my experience usually only controls the volume while in the cable mode)

Auto SAP

The problem is not a cable one, but a TV function. Pull out your user manual for your TV. My dad just had this happen, and he has a Sony WEGA TV. The auto sap is an AUTO Secondary Audio Program, you need to find the menu to back out of it.

Good luck.

RCA 60" projection tv Turns on and starts flipping channels by it self

replace the keyboard or remove the switches for channel up/down to see which one is bad. if neither does it, there are some components around the microprocessor that can cause this.
