WS-B55 - Remote doesn't respond, front panel partial response

Hi, last night I tried to turn my TV on with the remote but it did not work.

I turned it on from the front panel and that worked but the only other buttons that worked were "Device" and "Enter".

Device cycled thru the devices properly but when I hit "Enter" all it did was go to the next device.

I am able to power it off via the power button on the TV but once, that didn't even work. Then I hit device (just brought up the menu0 and then I was able to shut it off with the front panel.

I'm wondering if this is a software problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Joe

    Just to add, I also reset the system with the reset button a few times and nothing changes.

  • Joeygates Jun 21, 2008

    Just curious if anyone has any ideas about this at all. Mitsubishi has directed me to a service tech and I don't know if I want to go spending $500 to fix a TV I purchased just over 5 years ago for $2500 . . .

TV is not responding to the remote control.


The set may have defaulted to a front panel lockout. To defeat that on the front of the set hold down the MENU button for 15 seconds and see if it will then power up. I know that doesn't solve the problem with the remote but one step atta time. These sets are prone to leaky switches on the control panel and when that happens the micro cannot accept two different commands at the same time. That could be why the remote is not working.

Tv ws-65511 volume stuck


Did you ever get this problem fixed? Ours just started doing the same thing. It worked fine the night before, but today it's doing what yours is doing. The remote stopped working for the TV. The remote still works for the cable box, but volume and anything related to TV function not. The screen flashes when we try to adjust volume or anything else, but resets to previous volume. TV not responding to any commands either on the front panel or remote.
Any ideas? Thanks, Patti

Would you like to bypass, defeat or reset your Mitsubishi HDTV Parental V-Chip parental lock? Have you forgotten your V-Chip passcode or password?

If you forget your V-Chip passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your password.

When your passcode is requested, press the number 9 and the QV button on the original TV remote control at the same time. This process temporarily unlocks your TV.

When you enter the V-Chip Lock menu, pressing the number 9 and the QV button on the original TV remote control at the same time will delete your old password and prompt you to enter a new passcode. Pressing HOME at this time will cancel the entire passcode.

I hope that helps.

Will not power on. Please Help!!


Error code 12 means normal operation. On these models we have found that a switch is sticking on the control panel not allowing the set to turn on. Disconnect the control panel. You will be able to use the remote on it. To find the plugs for the control panel: Remove the speaker grill and front panel, then follow the wire to the connection. Remember to unplug the set before putting your hands inside of it. Tell me how it went. Lead Tech
