Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Mitsubishi VS4542 My parents just picked this TV up second-hand, it came with a manual but we're having a problem with the screen. It seems its "stuck" in widescreen mode, and some of the text is off-center. Neither my parents or I are techies, so any help here would be appreciated.

When you mean "stuck" in widescreen mode, is it due to a boarder or is it something else. Using the remote control you can make the necessary changes such as DPI, Borders, etc...

let me know if I can help any further...

Good Luck....MetalDad

NO PICTURE ON TV / JUST BLUE SCREEN / W/RED SYMBOL.Have an Advent TV -- seems locked up, can't get a picture, just a blue screen with a red symbol in upper right hand corner


Look to the owner manual if you have it as it will likely have the answer you need--if no manual Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate the owner manual---if get or have it read it carefully as it sounds like to me the parental lock is on or something similar to it.

Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.
