Mitsubishi ws-55511 Sound & Cable picture turns on and off

I just bought a Mitsubishi WS-55511 and had picture and sound from my cable connection. After a period of time the picture went blank, but sound remained. Picture and sound still worked on the Hi-Def inputs. After unplugging the TV and playing with settings the picture with sound came on. Then after a while the picture shuts off. Is there any code combination on the remote that will cause the picture to shut off and leave the sound on?

If you have picture in a picture feature and a button that controls that ,maybe you hit the pic.in a pic. button.It would go blank cause the other source for pic. ina pic. does not exist.Thats just a guess.The this behavior happen when you use a dvd or antenna connection?If so there might be something wrong with tv.Try a different input b4 anything else.

Hi,

DO A HARD RESET: Unplug the power cord for 4 hours. This will discharge all the voltages on the internal eproms. When you power it back up the factory defaults will automatically replace the eprom data. This will correct any corrupted codes.

Of course, this may not be the problem, but could be. So this is a first line check.

WHACKING TEST: Many times these sort of mysterious conditions are a result of loose wiring or cold solder joints. About half of the strange complaints I get fall into this category. While the set is on and while you are trying to address the OSD, bang on the cabinet in several places with your hand or fist. This will jar the set hard enough to restore the faulty internal connection that may have been the culprit.

If nothing pops up by now, it is most likely the controller IC and/or screen graphics driver is defective and needs replaced. This is not related to the picture or video that comes from the program, they are really quite separate.

The cost of this repair could be quite high because it will require a tech to do some clever analysis in order to find out exactly which circuit is the offending one.

I don't think you will find this kind of problem written up in any of the manuals or service books. It is quite strange and really, if a tech is needed, well require one who is a cut above the ordnary one: Someone who really knows how to troubleshoot and analyse and think about what is going on inside. Most Mitsubishi techs are "phone jockeys" the merely call an 800 number and someone tells them which board to replace. They replace until the repair is made and they don't really know what is going on inside - but you get a bill for $400 or $500!

Gooddluck,

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to


Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.

My television only puts out a pic in 480. The 720 and 1080 are not working. Getting sound no picture


No input on a WS-55511 is capable of 720p . Inputs COMP1 and COMP2 ONLY accept 480i/480p . Input DTV accepts 480i/p and 1080i . When using Input DTV with a component connection(YPbPr) and you get a green or no picture then you will need to navigate the menus and setup input DTV for YPbPr instead of RGB.

High Definition--WS-55807


IF the MITS has 3 component inputs blue red yellow RCA jacks on the back then yes at 480 or 720p, you'll need to attach 2 audio cables for sound. If it has a HDMI input then absolutely.

WS-55511 55in volume turns up by itself & can't switch devices


The remote is not the problem. The switch for volume up on the control panel has become leaky. Very common problem for this generation Mitsubishi. If you don't mind not having the control panel working you can disconnect it and the set will work just fine with the remote. To disconnect the control panel pull the speaker grill, it just snaps off, and remove the front access panel. Once that is done you'll see a cable going to the switches just disconnect it.

Format stuck on Mitsubishi WS-55511 Rear Projection TB


Normallly, if the format button on the remote does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen when an analog signal is detected. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the hook up of the peripherals. Hope this helps.
