Question about Mitsubishi WS-55809 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hooking up my new PS3 to my five year old 55" Mitsubishi HDTV.

OK guys, I am having trouble hooking up my TV to this PS3 device. I have to determine what componant inputs to hook the PS3 cables to. It is confusing because one only set of componant inputs( the one that says DTV) indicates it produces 1080i. Once I get the cables hooked to it and try to program the tv for a video sorce, PS3 is obviously not on the list, so I put in "Other" when it asks for type of device. All I get on the screen when the PS3 turns on is very green images.

Can you please advise me as to how to properly hook up this PS3 to my tv so I get the best images possible?
Thank you very much!

The Sony outputs 180P, not 1080i. There is a difference. I don't know what exactly, but Sony says 1080p is for superior.

When hooking up blu ray with hdmi to component converter i get audio but no video just dots and lines on the tv

Hi Joanne
I would suspect the quality of component converter device...

HDMI is the latest state of the art for HD (High Definition 1080) video signal. Poor cables or poor connectors can cause weird results.
It's best to go from HDMI to HDMI.
If the tv doesn't have a HDMI input then it probably can't handle the newer standard.
Component Video is an old standard for video before we got high definition. It uses three separate wires.
Try swapping the coloured wires around to see the result.
Good Luck

Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?

It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

The color is not working properly on the TV. The red is off.

In discussing with Mitsubishi they had me trouble shoot the cable input line and determined that the color would work in the antenna A and B ports. Mitsubishi believes the scrambling of the cable box is cauing the problem with the normal hook up but I would need to discuss with the cable company. At least I know the color is working properly on the TV.

DVD Player not working

Go to menu. Select inputs. Assign input 1(or whatever input you connectedthe dvd to) as DVD. Then exit menu. Press the input key, scroll over to DVD. I reccomend using a component cable with a digital audio cable, if you do not have a DVD player that has an HDMI connection. You will find that a blu-ray player will be much more satisfying for the television you have. Basically by hooking up that old dvd player to that tv, is the same as hooking an 8-track to a $2,000.00 stereo. It will work, but the quality is going to suffer! Good luck, and believe me. It is worth the extra money to get a blu-ray player. It will play all your old dvd's and blu-rays. That way you are getting the full potential of your set.
