Question about Mitsubishi WS-65711 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My TV has stopped responding to the remote control (and the universal remote) and the front panel buttons don't work

I know the remote control is functioning (it controls other components), but the TV does not respond to it. Also, the buttons (all, except for the Power button) on the front panel will not work and allow me to change the TV inputs so that i can play a video game or watch a DVD.

Bottom line, TV works, but only to watch TV and will not respond to remote.

    I have the same type of problem with my WD 73725. I have 2 remotes and both quit working at the same time. So, I know it is not the remote controls that are the problem. It acts like the infared receiver in the TV is dead. I have to manually turn on/off the TV and use it as a monitor with my Dishnetwork. I tried the reset button on the front of the TV several times as the manual suggests with no success. I have 2 Mitsubishi TVs and have had problems with light engines on both. I wouldn't give Mitsubishi high marks on quality. Anyone have a solution or is is time to go back to the shop for a third time in a year and a half??

    Essentially the same as previous posts. TV does not recognize remote. Remote will control all other configured equipment. Buttons on front of TV will change channel but will not allow use of netcommand to change input. Reset multiple times results only in power light blinking for several minutes & unit turning off. When TV turned back on, message appears to reset clock.

VW37L 37 in. LCD HDTV input button wont work


Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.

The TV stopped responding to the remote control


tried with reset doesn't work, ok it could be the IR sensor at the front panel of the tv doesn't work. but before you replace it you need to ensure if your remote controller is working. have you tried to check the remote with camera trick just to know if the remote controller is sending light to the IR sensor of the tv.

Hi,
To confirm if the remote control has been working fine, point directly the infrared emitter to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key at the remote control, you will see the flash of an infrared indicating that the remote control has been working. Click this LINK for more info.
Let me know if you see the infrared flashing.

The RC R0509 remote control does not respond to the receiver. I bought a universal remote and tried all the codes but still no responce.


people say that you have to tap on the receiver near the remote sensor. I don't know exactly where that is though since these are RF (radio frequency) not IR remotes, so there isn't a sensor panel in the front. I'd just tap along the front edge with the handle of a screwdriver or something. People say it works a treat.

LE26R74BDX TV Not responding to Remote


there is a easier way to check your remote.
Open your radio on AM frequencies, you don't need to be tuned just noise is perfect, then bring your remote near the antenna and press some button. You will ear the frequency in your radio. If it works this way but not on the TV make sure to press the TV button before using it (if the remote is universal).

TV is not responding to the remote control.


The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.
