I'm about at wits end with this set. Long story--I'll condense as best I can. TV purchased 12/04. In 11/06 I hooked up a HD cable box via the component video jacks. No signal. (I had never used the component jacks, so was not sure they ever worked.) After weeks of troubleshooting by cable co., local TV repair co., and Mitsubishi Tech., it was determined that board #930B924002 was bad. After $621 replacement, the TV worked for 2 weeks--then back to the blue screen. (All other inputs have always worked fine.) Mitsubishi then decided it must need an entire new chassis #955B298001 ($1,015). The day I was to take the set back in for the repair, it began to work--out of the blue, with no tinkering--so I didn't take it in. Now, 15 months later, it has quit working again. Do you know what is happening and if this is common with this set?
Had to get my chassis replaced for similar reasons. it was still under warranty so i lucked out. however i was out of a tv for 3 months off and on because of all the troubleshooting that had to be done before Mitsu said replace the chassis

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.
If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.
A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)
You need to use audio cables. Connect two red and white audio cables from the output on the HD box to the relative input at the back of TV (nr.4 in picture below). The best way to connect the HD box is by using component cables, that are the red-green and blue trio of cables, plus a white and red audio cables.
Once you have the five cables, connect them to the output at the back of the Direct TV box, and then connect the other end of the cable to either group of connectors 6, or to one of the columns in connector 7. Do connection with box and TV power off. After re-applying power use the source-input selector on remote to select the source from Direct TV box.
You should be able to get 1080i with the Input/DVI port or the component video in ports of the TV. I believe the easiest option will be to set the XBox A/V switch to HDTV and use a component video cable (red, green, blue) from the XBox component out to the TV Component In. (with the audio out going to your TV or speaker system). Turn on the X-box and the My Xbox > System Settings. Then Console Settings > Display and chose the 1080i.
Set the TV Net Command (remote) and the Device settings for the input jack in use (component 1/2). Adjust the A/V menu for the Display before playing long.
Wen you change inputs, you will see a status screen for the settings for the TV input.
A computer can't be connected directly. You will need a video converter of some sort to go from VGA to Component Video. If your computer's video card has TV-out functionality, you just need a VGA to component video cable. Otherwise, you will need a set-top box converter, such as http://www.svideo.com/hiwire.html .
Probably, you'll just need the audio and video cables separately. Most DVD Players still have Component video (one cable with 3 video plugs on each end and the two channel (red and white) RCA audio. Your TV also has an AV input (one cable with a single RCA plug on each end - usually yellow for video, plus the audio cable) and S-video.
The component video is your best choice with modern DVD players if you can't use the HDMI port.
Yes, there are several ways to hook up your HDMI to your TV but first, we need to understand that HDMI carries both audio and video signals though a single cable in digital form.
I am assuming you want to connect a device such as a digital cable box, Blu Ray or HD DVD player with an HDMI output to your TV. Since your TV has both digital (DVI) and analog (S-Video, component, etc) inputs, my suggestion would be to get and HDMI to DVI adapter (about $20 at buy.com) for your video and for your audio, use any RCA audio cable (I use the one from the Dollar Store). This would give you the best video resolution from your source device.
My next suggested solution would be to get an HDMI to component video + audio cable (< $10 at eBay for a 6' length) for a single-cable fix. Again component video carries analog signals so the DVI could be a better viewing experience but because the cost of the cables are minimal, I would try both solutions to see which fix would give you the better picture.
Note that since the audio is being run though RCA connectors in both instances, the digital Dolby, 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound tracks in high definition sources will not be reproduced if you connect your TV's audio-out to your audio receiver. To get the best audio, I would connect the HDMI device's digital out (optical, coaxial, etc) directly to the receiver.
Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you. I f you are going to hook up your cable box - motorola to the sherwood receiver, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the motorola cable box, there is only 1 hdmi output there, then connect the other end to the sherwood receiver on the hdmi input, then connect another hdmi cable to the hdmi output and the other end goes to your rca hd tv.
for the sony dvp, you have only one hdmi out, connect an hdmi cable to the back of the sony dvp if u have another spare. connect it to the hdmi input of the sherwood receiver. there is only 1 hdmi output at the sherwood, so u need to use a component cable to be connected at the back of the sherwood receiver component output then the other end goes to the component input of the hd tv.
if you dont have anymore hdmi cable to hook up your sony dvp, u can use component cable, the connection will goes like this, connect a component cable on the output of the sony dvp and the other end goes to the sherwood component input then connect another component cable to the component output of the sherwood and the other end goes to the rca hd tv on the component input.
I hope this will solve your concern, if you have any question, u can get in touch..
I figured it out,
The solution to my problem was to update my video cables for my new HDTV.
I found out through trial and error that I can only have one Anolog device hooked up to the TV because with two Anolog devices hooked up the same way it must confuse the TV somehow making one of the inputs showing up in Black and White, So I purchased the color coded AV jacks and everthing works like a charm now.
