I have been trying to hook my dvd player up to my WD-52528 mitsubishi,but i am having touble trying to figure it out so i can watch a movie,and i have misplaced my manuel.can anybody help me?

If you have an upconvert dvd player use a hdmi cable, it's the easiest. If not use component cables for video (red green and blue, labeled Y, pb, pr on the back of the tv) and standard left & right ( red and white) for audio.

Mitsubishi 55 in. 1080 series

If I remember correctly, this TV has a couple of constraints that will cramp your style:

1. It supports 480i, 480p and 1080i. NO 720P
2. It has component video inputs, but NO HDMI. (as you stated)

There is no easy solution here, because I've never found an upconverting DVD player that would upconvert anything past 480p using the analog component outputs...


Perhaps you can find an Upconverting BLU-RAY disk player that may allow older DVDs to be upconverted to 1080i via the component outputs.

MOST Blu-Ray players allow 1080i output via the analog connections on Blu-Ray discs, so perhaps there is your solution.

Philips 60

There will be a big difference in video quality between HDMI and S-Video. If you happen to have a DVD player that uses HDMI you can upconvert your movies to 1080i if your DVD player allows it. The only problem that you might run into is your audio. HDMI has audio built into the cable and DVI does not, with the HDMI to DVI cable you are going to have to find an alternate source for your audio to travel through. If you are looking for video quality get the HDMI to DVI cable.

My Samsung LN40A530 only produces a blank blue screen whenever I try to use an HDMI input source. Audio seem to come through fine but not the video. Other, non-HDMI video inputs work fine. I've tried...

We are having the same problem. We have 2 DVD players with up-converter to 1080i and 1080p. Both DVD work fine (one Sony and one Samsung) with our Samsung LN-T4053H upstairs, never intermittent.

LN40A530 downstairs is having "Searching for Signal" problem. Took it back to Sears got a new one, problem followed. Something is wrong with this LN40A530. Perhaps firmware update is needed.

Hdmi Issue

Most new HDMI DVD players use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)on the HDMI output.If you try to play this on an older TV that is not compliant with these new standards it will not work.This standard came out late in 2004 that is why your older player still works. There is also a service bulletin from JVC about upgrading the software on your TV for HDMI compatiblity issues.If you want a pdf file of the bulletin I can send it to you.
