    My remote lights up whenever i press any buttons, but the TV does not respond at all to anything. Have to turn it on and off from the side of the tv.

    What is the solution, is there a way to reset the connection?

Look on the right side of the cabinet for a vent. Shine a flashlight into the vent and check for obstruction(dust). This will cause unit to overheat. clear obstruction and test.

Hello,
There is a software update that is available for some Mitsubishi dlp models. The wd-65c9 is one of them. When I experienced your problem, I went to the website, downloaded the update, and installed it on my tv and boom, its fixed. It's super easy, free, and takes a few minutes.

My Toshiba 62HM95 62 in. HDTV DLP TV won't turn on...the green and red lights under the power button remain on and the red light flashes. How do I fix this?


Most likely, you need to replace your DLP bulb. The one that comes with your TV will last a few years max. The replacements seem to only last about a year. D:

Magnavox 42 LCD 42mf438b/f7 turns on/off by itself


Mine was doing the same thing. Update the firmware and it fixes the problem. Updating the firmware is done by downloading the file to a thumb-drive from the phillips product support page then plugging in the drive into the side of your television and turning it on. See your manual for slightly better instructions.

14 MONTH OLD TOSHIBA TURNS OFF BY ITSELF


I repair a lot of these and a average tv lasts like 3 years . It is not like the old days. I suspect the lamp or fans or therm protector.

I would call a local tv shop see what they charge for estimate it might be worth his estimate to find out what it is.


Thanks doctor video
