you may want to download a free manual for your exact model.
All Mitsubishi sets have 3 hidden menus:
Option Menu: used mainly for a hard reset of the set.
Circuit Adjust Menu : which will have height, width, CENTERING adjustments and many others.
Convergence adjust Menu: same as in customer menu but allows save of adjustments made.
Entry into each menu is done with the original remote and a 4 digit number code.
The reason you would want the manual is it will tell you what buttons on the remote do what once you get into the (in your case) circuit adjust menu.
Some buttons will allow you to scroll the items and others to adjust them; note also on screen will be numbers indicating the current setting of each item usually with numbers. You want that so you can if you try to center picture left or right to know what original setting was in case adjusting does not help.
I have the codes for all three but confirm actual model number and get the manual so you know in your model what remote buttons do what.
IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off: On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.
Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.
Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.
Count the number of times the light flashes. After you know that, Google your make and model number with blink codes added to the end. This will take you to sites that will tell you what the blink code on your tv means. The blink code is a self diagnostis performed by your set to tell service where to start with repairs.
Very familiar with this problem. Count the number of times the light blinks. Then, Google the make and model of your TV and add blink codes to the end. This will show you links to sites that tell you what the blink code means.
I would get a generic remote and program it for your set. If you mean that you don't know the security pin which you created for the set you could have big problems. If you are talking about the factory pin, that is usually in the operation manual or you can contact the company. Generally the factory pins are simple like 1,2,3,4.
