Question about Mitsubishi WS-65869 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Remote won't work WS65903 1998'

The only way to format the tv is through the remote and it doesn't work i had the sensor checked out and it was ok then i had the remote checked out and it is also ok.

there are no mobile tv techs in the olympia area and the one place that would pick it up wants 200$ to pick it up and drop it off!!! $$%%****

i was told that its a diode some where.

i just want my tv to limp the tv on without looking at 5inches of white on each side of the screen. also i check and you can't set it manually

any ideas?

Remote control No work

Try another remote control, if it is also not working that means remote sensor in tv got bad and become unable to receive remote signals, replace remote sensor in tv.
If other remote works then replace batteries in bad/ suspected remote and check.
Let me know model and brand of your tv if you have additional question.

Is the TV in standby and cannot turn on?

Or does the TV not turn on at all?

Where is the eye for the remote on the TV????

Hi, remote sensor is located behind the front screen, if the remote doesn`t work as well (you didn`t say so I`m assuming it doesn`t) then you either have bad tact switches on the control board (the buttons on the front of the set) or the 5 volt line to the control board is missing, video-tek

No audio

9 times out of 10 a TV like that which has no audio is fine and the audio settings are not right or it is a cable box / satellite receiver problem. If you are using cable then connect the cable directly to the TV, tune in an active channel and set the volume about half way. If you do not hear any sound then, using the remote, go into the menu, scroll to the audio page and make sure the speakers are not set to OFF and also make sure the audio is not set to SAP. If you have checked all that and everything is set correctly and you still have no audio, then your audio output IC is probably bad or cracked and should be resoldered or replaced by a qualified tech.
