    It may be helpful to know that the year of manufacture of this Mitsubishi TV set, Model Number CS-2653R, is 1987. Also, the TV Remote Control Model # is 939P192020, which is the same as the Remote Control Part #.

    Unfortunately, I do not have the owner's manual for this Mitsubishi TV, Model # CS-2653R. I have searched numerous web sites in order to obtain a copy of the owner's manual, but I could not find any available. If I had the owner's manual, I'm sure that would provide the information I need.

    In answer to your question, no I am not trying to set up the vblock for this TV set. I don't think vblock was even available in TV sets manufactured in 1987.

    All I want to do is unblock channels that were previously blocked because the channels were unused at that time.

  • jollybob Jul 06, 2008

    That's correct, I'm trying to (as you say) "unskip" channels that were previously programmed to be "skipped" and therefore unavailable.

    Thanks for your efforts, Robotek. Take as much time as you need. This is not an emergency.

    I have come up empty handed also. Used to setup these units all the time, but without the controls in front of me, struggling to remember how to do it. I take it you are attempting to "unskip" channels whilst setting up presets?

Mitsubishi WD-60735 Control issues

This set has aside from the recessed front reset two more done with the Mitsubishi remote.

The soft reset "should" be with set on Menu, 1,2,3, enter

The hard reset requires a 4 digit number code and is based on model number and also done with the Mitsubishi remote--try to see if soft reset works at all on this model.

Need tv code, tv is locked


Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.
Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.
Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.
Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.
Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Also note that forgotten the passcode of your Mitsubishi TV. You can make it alive without knowing the passcode. Please follow
V_Chip lock bypassing prodedure is as follows
You can view your locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V_chip lock menus.

This is done by pressing the number "9" and "QV" buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V_Chip lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.

I hope this will help to solve the problem...

I have an old mitsubishi TV model cs 35203 serial 515512, and all that shows up on the screen is a thin horizontal line through the middle.

You either have a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC401 or a failure of the Vertical output IC altogether. The part number should be labeled clearly on the front of the chip and is likely LA7836 or LA7837. It's difficult to reference parts on a set this old. Remove the chassis and visibly inspect the solder connections. If they look good, replace the chip. Good luck

I have a Mitsubishi  "CS-3515R.  Serial number 528801. When I turn it on by remote or on the set itself, I can hear the power come on.  BUT there is no picture and no sound.  What do I do?

Replacement lamp on mitsubshi tv

That model can have two 3300uf capacitors that go bad on the PWB which will cause the set to detect a lamp abnormality and trigger a red light on the lamp. You can find out more info on it by going to the following link and leaving them a email with your model number and symptom.
