Question about Mitsubishi VS-45609 TV

1 Answer

No color sometimes

My older (over 10 years) little Emerson tv sometimes has only b\w when first turned on. So far, the color has come back (I always fiddle with picture controls, but don't know if that's made a difference). Is it going to go out on me completely soon - in other words, should I get a new one, or will this one probably last a little while longer with just having to wait for the color to come back after first turning it on??? Thanks in advance...

So long as your reception is good, sounds like colour- killer circuitry or something that is killing the colour burst pulse.
Oh well, small TV's are pretty cheap now!

Where is the power button on a 72 Emerson 72 in flat panel screen TV In

Emerson's site does not list any 72" TVs. The largest that I see is a 55" model. There are a few common locations for the buttons, though. Some models have the buttons near the center front of the TV. Sometimes these buttons are on the bottom of the bezel. A few models have the buttons on the right hand side of the TV. The Emerson LF501EM4 and LF461EM4 both have the buttons on the lower back of the TV on the right hand side as you face the TV.

If the buttons are in a horizontal line, the power button will be on the far right (when you look at the front of the TV). If the buttons are positioned vertically, the power button will be at the top.

The manuals are available from Emerson Audio Video on the product page or the support page for current models. Start at . Funai manufactures the TVs with the Emerson name. For older TV models, try to find the manual.

WIthout the model number of the TV, I can't give any better information about the location of the front panel control buttons. I hope that your TV has the control buttons in one of the three above locations.

How to fix tv picture upside down and fuzzy rainbow color.

Factory reset will make it right. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

My emerson tv keeps turning the volume up and down by itself

There is an IC inside the set that is suppose to control the volume and maintain the level it is set to and not let it get to high on commercials or to low in love scenes.this IC has gone bad, common problem in Emerson. IC isn't very expensive, although sometimes it's in with other things on a 64 pin IC. Little tiring desoldering and soldering it back in.

I have an older emerson tv that I can not get to pick up channels above 36. It is pluged directly into my cable outlet. When I hook up another tv it will get around 90 channels. Is there a setting I can...

I doubt that there is a setting built or designed in your tv, older tv tuning systemslike yours were designed for what was back then available as far as channel capability(cable ready sets)what ypu can do is get a cable converter and get the channels thru the box or if you have a vcr hooked up you can always select channels thru te vcr tuner if the tuning system in the vcr is newer. thanks!

Green hue on KP-43Ht20 Sony rear projection tv

Behind the front cover you will see a little plastic box with six phillips headed dials. They only move 180 degrees. The three on the bottom control color richness and the three above them control focus. Turn all three of the bottom ones to the left while the TV is on, then gradually turn them to the right until you get the color you want. NOTE if any one of the three bottom dials are too far up the TV will shut down and will continue to turn off after about 10 seconds after start up until the offending dial is turned back a little.
