Recently acquired TV. Working fine for 2 weeks then static instead of sound while daughter was watching movie. I had video component jack connected at input one, and output component connected to onkyo amp. I tried fiddling with various software configurations in audio menu without success. I switched the internal speakers back on and also had static. I am wondering if I burnt something out as there is a warning to that effect on the back of TV. If so what is better wiring configuration to avoid repeat of this situation.

You probably need to get a composite video output card for your computer. Actually, I've seen many cards that have both a composite video output AND a DVI output port on 1 card. The DVI output will give you a noticeably sharper picture than composite video, but you need to check if your TV has a DVI or HDMI input. (If it was manufactured after 2000, it probably does.) If you TV was manufactured after 2006, it probably has 1 or more HDMI inputs instead of DVI. You can buy a DVI to HDMI converter cable. That takes care of the picture; to get sound to the TV, you will need to connect separate sound cables to your TV. Your computer needs to have a line-level output jack on it's sound card, and you will need to get an adapter cable (from Radio Shack) to convert the stereo mini-plug to 2 RCA type plugs to plug into your TV. And that should do it!
This is an ongoing problem with Mitsubishi DLP HDTV's contact the Customer Service at 1-800-332-211. Tell them this has been going on for a while and you want the TV either Fixed or Replaced. Ask for Adrianne Hardt, she is a Customer Service Manager...... TELL HER RICK GRIFFITH told you to call.
I am in the 4th week negociations with Mitsubishi over these exact problems. I purchased my 57" DLP HDTV in Aug of 06. Replaced the Lamp 3 times and have had 5 Service calls. I DO NOT have and extended Warranty. Mitsubishi provided me with the extention in writing and stated if any problem occurred again they would replace the Unit or provided monetary compensation.
Good Luck and be persistant.
Any of you can email me for from info and firstname.lastname@example.org
there is a possibility that you have switched the RCA cables for the right port, the color patterns happen if your plug the component RCA ( Y Pb Pr) on a diff port. their usually color coded so please double check that to.
if not, please let us know what is the model number of the TV and we will find what can be done in the TV.
