Question about Mitsubishi VS-50705 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

When I turn the set on it immediately clicks off. I have had no problems with the set for the 10 years I have owned it. Is there a reset button? I have unplugged it and re-plugged it but that did not help. It powered off today while we were watching tv and won't power on.

Feel fortunate for the 10 years; owners of sets failing just after the warranty are really angry.
That length of time tells me that the power supply was better designed than most but is now failing to turn on and run. Modern supplies are very complex and demand a high level of component quality, far more so than the older (and less efficient) type called 'linear.'
The supply assembly is almsot always on a separate board and you should be able to recognize it through the relationship to the AC power coming in and the fact that they will have physically larger components, some cylindrical (capacitors) and others block-like devices (chokes and transformers.)
Look for an assembly number on that unit and contact Mitsubishi service to inquire about the replacement and/or repair cost of that board.
You really have been lucky since most modern sets don't run half that time without failing.

How To Reset Your Magellan Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units

Factory Reset
Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.
  1. Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
  2. Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
  3. If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.
If your Maestro GPS Touch Screen Doesn't work, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. Remove the Magellan Maestro from the holding cradle.
  2. Hold down the "Power" button on the right side of the device, until the unit powers on.
  3. Straighten the end of a paper clip. Place the paper clip in the reset hole, located on the left side of the GPS unit. Hold down the "Reset" button for 10 seconds. Remove the paper clip.
  4. Turn the Magellan Maestro unit off by holding down the "Power" button. Turn the unit back on again. The device is now reset.

If your Roadmate GPS is locked up, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. On the RoadMate, press + + - - + -
  2. The "hidden menu" will appear.
  3. From there, you can access the shell and perform a hard reset.

Went in to set a wep but when i i click wep it locked with out giving the option to personolize my own code now i cant connect

Hello. There is a reset button on the back of the router. You will have to use a pin or bent paper clip to stick into the hole to hit that reset button. With the router on, push that button and hold it down for 5-10 seconds (or until you see the router lights turn off then on again). What you will be doing is a reset of the routers factory settings. Once this is done, you will be able to access the router settings again as you did before.

Tv isnt turning on, you will hear a click then see the power light flash 6 times then the light goes off for about 10 mins then comes back on flasing again...and the cycle just continues. It did this once...

Sounds like a power supply problem. I worked for a short period for Panasonic at their USA plasma R&D / small scale manufacturing facility and learned that to "ignite" or start the plasma when turning on the set, a significant current discharge is required.

The recycling seems to indicate that the "brain" in the set realized that a plasma has not been established, and it is attempting to recharge the starting circuit. The flashing power light is probably significant and a trained technician or a service manual will probably identify this as a trouble code pointing to the problem. Sorry, I did not have any exposure to the finished product and cannot advise what the code means.

If the set is still under warranty, you should act immediately and get the problem taken care of, because it will not go away on its own, and will most likely get worse. Sorry the news is not better. Good luck!

How do i connect my wireless remote to my d60????

In the Shooting Mode menu, change <from either Single or Continuous or 10Second self-timer> to 2S (two seconds) Remote or immediate Remote -- there's an icon that looks like your remote. Then get in front of the camera (lens cap removed already) and point the remote to the IR receiver on the front of the camera and click the remote button ... it will take the shot immediately or after two seconds (depending on what you specified).

The shooting mode doesn't seem to stick -- if I turn the camera off and then on, it's gone back to how it was previous set and I have to set it to remote again.

My bigger problem was I thought (guessed, since there were no instructions!) that I had to press the self-timer function button before clicking the remote -- but doing that kept resetting my shooting mode back to 10 seconds on SELF TIMER (taking it off of REMOTE mode).

93 tempo

I had the same problem a few months back with my 93 Tempo. After fiddling with the battery, checking for spark, and messing with my distributor cap, I found the emergency fuel shut off reset button in the trunk. If you haven't already, open the trunk, and on the left hand side there is a recess with a largish red button. Press it. If it clicks, then your fuel injector shut off because it though it had been in an accident (mine happened right after pulling into my driveway, where I had bottomed out a little bit, so it doesn't take much to set it off). If it clicks, your car should start immediately
Hope it helps!
