Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Stuck on dvd

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

How do i change from 480i to 1080i on my mitsubishi ws55315

You can't. Depending on what the output device is sending and what input you are using ion the back, it chooses for you.

ie - if you have a DVD player sending out 480 the TV will only allow different versions of 480.

WS-55511 Mitsubishi projection TV is stuck on input 4, remote will not work at all. Any suggestions?

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.

Trouble changing device

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.

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.

Cant go from 480 i to 1080 any suggestions?

How do you have your Blu-Ray player hooked up?

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).

Good luck.

Tv wont respond because device menu is changing through each device

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!

High Def.

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.
