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.

    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 wont responde to remote or front panlle,pressed reset no response


There are several things that you can do for troubleshooting this symptom.

First, you can test the remote; if you have a camcorder you can film the remote while it is transmitting. The camera can see the infrared diode on the front of the remote. Just turn the video camera on record and shine the front of the remote into the lens of the camera. If it is flashing then the remote is working.

You may want to unplug the television set for 30 min and then plug it in and see if that fixes it.

As you stated in your post, neither the remote or the front panel work to turn the television. It is possible that you have a dead set.

I would recommend that you contact a local service center to come out and diagnose the problem that you are having.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
