I have a 55511 Mitsubishi 1080i series, and for some reason it is stuck in DVD mode. I try to change the device and neither the remote or the button on the tv will change it. The remote works for everything else, and you can cycle through the other devices in the menu but you are unable to select any other ones. Please help thanks

This model was first made in 2002 and is a V21 Mitsubishi chassis.
I presume the front input or device button does not do anything.
This (if it is a WS-55511) has an option code that can be accessed. It will reset everything back to the condition the set was in when it was new in the box; once executed you will have to put it in the cable band and autoprogram it----email me if you need instructions for this and I will give them to you.
If this was helpful I would appreciate a vote from you.
Your problem may be solved by re-initializing the set. With the tv on use the remote and push MENU,2,1,7,0. A display will come up. Use the up down arrows on the remote to select INITIAL and press the enter key on the remote. That should do it.
First, you have to set your Blu-Ray player to output 1080i (the highest resolution that the Mitsubishi WS-55511 can support). Then you hook up the player via component to the DTV component input on your set (it's the only input that can handle 480i/p and 1080i).
I had a similar problem: my WS-55511 would not respond to the remote and the front control buttons (with the exception of Power) cycled through the Device Menu. I solved this problem by disconnecting the front panel. Here's how to do it:
0. Unplug the TV
1. Remove the speaker grill from the front by pulling forward: there are no screws.
2. Disconnect the two cables that are exposed after the grill is removed.
3. Plug the TV back in, wait for 5 minutes to reset.
4. Try using the remote.
Hope this helps!
If you are using the component inputs it will select 1080i automatically IF that is what it is being sent. Make sure your device (cable/satellite receiver) is set to 1080i. The TV recognizes 480i, 480p(progressive scan DVD player) and 1080i. It DOES NOT recognize 720p. Since it has no HDMI or DVI input it can't do HD DVD or "upconvert" DVD but it does very nicely with 480p/progressive scan.
