Question about Mitsubishi WS-65869 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WS-65905 DTV is green

Plugged in new HD cable box into the DTV inputs, but all I get is a green washed screen. Looks like old B/W image with a green overlay. Image seems clear, but no real colors except the green. Played with the color control settings, but no real help there. Driver board for DTV bad? Other inputs (inputs 1, 2, 3) all work fine with normal color. Only DTV inputs give the green screen. NO HELP from Mitsubishi, since they don't support anything prior to 2002.

    Nothing but top of the line Monster Cables connecting the equipment, so
    it is NOT a problem with inferior cables, etc. Same thing happens
    with my son's XBox connection to the DTV. So it must be something
    in the set.

    I have a Mitsubishi WS-65905 TV and DirecTv says we need to switch out
    our existing HD receiver to a new one that they provide because they
    are switching to a different system.



    Problem is, the tech guy they sent out 3 times can't figure out how do
    accomplish this. Everything that he has done results in a very nice
    picture, except that everything is tinted GREEN!



    Does anybody know what the problem might be and how we can fix it? If
    we don't, we won't be able to get any HD programming at all.



    Thank you for any help.

    Mitsubishi WS-65969 "Famous Green blinking light" I move the TV to make room for the Christmas Tree - now the TV will not come on - I have the green blinking light!!! I called a technician and he quote $400 to $500 to repair. I bought the TV in 2003 and paid $4200 - after reading the other quotes I will not get it fixed.

Cable box connections


The model listed has only ONE HD input and it is on the rear and marked DTV--it is a component input with red, green, blue and a red and white for audio---cable box would have to have same outputs on its rear.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Hello

Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
YPbPr(480i/480p/1080i)
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

InputDTV
This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
Ok.

Mitsubishi WS-65907 rear projection TV HD goes blue.


I would look at the source for the Hd signal as being the problem--if you are using some kind of cable or sat box it will deliver the signal to the DTV input on the back of the set--this is the HD input for this set.

It is possible to have a problem like you describe be one in the set--but very unlikely----have you looked on that green signal board for any signs of Glycol?

Anything that will produce a 1080 signal to the DTV input should tell you if the problem is the set or the source of the HD signal that is causing the problem.
