How do we set the picture to 1080 megapixels from 480i?

U can't just do it on ur own setting like 480i to 1080p when ever u want.No,u only get what ever the tv stations modes they set and send out only.Ur tv have the 1080p mode capability mean ur tv can pickup that 1080p mode.Dosen't mean u can change 480i to 1080p by ur self anytime u want,if the tv station is broadcating tv signal to u only in 480i u get only 480i.

How do we get the picture back to normal? The picture seems to be stuck in a zoom mode. The wide button does not fix this.

its probably a zoom setting on your cable or sat box.

sat - push the format button at the top or bottom of the remote to switch modes

cable -
go in to the cablebox menu, go to video settings, make sure its set to 1080i and 480i for 4:3 over ride, not stretch or zoom

Go to menu then setup if you do not see convergence listed in menu then you have blow Fuse FL231. Located next to FBT flyback transfomer on right side there is 3 fuses in a roll they will look like small rectrangler caps but are Fuses.06 amp

Mitsubishi WS65809 HD input (DTV) not working correctly. I replace the convergence chips in this TV and was making adjustments in the service menu. Everything was lined up and working great. The HD input...

All these sets do have a hard reset---not the reset button on the front of the set---it will return the set to the factory original condition it was when new in the box--it will not affect the convergence as that is stored in a separate unit--the DCU (digital convergence unit).

It is accessed with an original MITSUBISHI remote.

You can try it if you want:


menu-0,1,7,0 enter

There are 3 hidden menus in the set--this is the Option menu

You will see either reset or option etc and highlight it with the remote and hit enter. Set will shut off and should come back on channel three in the air band--any labels you placed on inputs will be gone and set will be in air band--you will if on cable have to change it to cable band and auto program etc.

Let me know what happens and if you have questions I am here to help.

I have a wd-52525 mitsubishi and it is supossed to be 720p but when I turn it on it says its 480i. What part of the tv makes it 720p or 1080p? Please help.......Thanks Paul

You will have to use component inputs for above 480i, and use the FORMAT key on your remote control unit (lower panel in center) to change to whatever you want for resolution. Be sure you have your signal input set to one of the Component inputs via Setup or Net Command (or use Devices on the remote)

Left side and right side are blury.

With projection sets, there is typically several settings for which you can display an output. You probably have a "wide" or "stretch" as a setting for the tv. What you want is normal, or some setting which doesn't result in a stretch. Widescreen projection tv's try to stretch 4:3 output into the widescreen setting, but usually this just results in the middle being in focus, and the outer 20% to be stretched on each side, bluring the edges.

Try to manipulate as many "tv settings" as possible. For most sets this is only available with the original remote. If you don't have the original remote, changing these settings could prove difficult.

Mitsubishi WS-65315 plug in HD comp shows as 480i


In the input assignment menu make sure that the DTV (the only 1080 input on this tv) is set to Y/Pb/Pr and see if that fixes your issue with at least the HD-DVR.

BTW- the HDMI information "1080i HD can only be selected if TV has HDMI inputs". is not correct.

I have two Sharp Flat Screen TV model # LC-26SB14U. One is hooked up to a regular Dish Network HD receiver. The other is hooked up to a HD DVR receiver. Both are hooked up to the same Phillips DVD player....

if you using the component input on both tvs I will check the settings on the receivers, "HD setup", the difference is because the settings are set one on 480i and the other on 1080i
