Hi,

I am assuming you tried to "cancel" using the original remote and/or you are using a universal/replacement remote with no "Cancel" button/key.

in any case, are you using a cable box or a home theater with tuner? If yes, temporarily remove the cable connection from where its originally connected now and connect the incoming cable connector straight to the back of the Mitsubishi TV, allow the TV to go through its updating cycle, might take some time. Thereafter, power off and try again. If not fully done repeat the process or unplug from the mains for a couple of hours.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My tv is locked and i do not know the code


Devices: Mitsubishi VS-45603 45 in. Rear Projection TV (only)

I'm hoping your have a working original remote for this creature from 1998 (the dark ages of Analog).

The first thing to try to reset a stored "lock code" is to unplug the set and leave it unplugged until the code is lost (or reset to the default). How long will this be? Mitsubishi won't tell (see below).

Service Codes are for the use of qualified service technicians only. Damage resulting from the unauthorized use of Service Codes will not be covered under warranty.

Manufacturer: Mitsubishi
Model: VS-45603
TV type: Analog Rear Projection Television
Chassis: VZ5
Year of Manufacture: 1998
Option Menu Code: 1370
Circuit Adjust Code: 2357
Convergence Adjust Code: 2359<4><5><6>

Since Mitsubishi fails to provide online support for its own products (even Users Manuals are unavailable), its left to the consumer to discover how to use & maintain Mitsubishi Electronics Products. Accordingly, I've no way to provide guidance on how to use the above Service Codes, nor is assistance possible if something goes horribly awry during the course of experimenting with them.
Please post your results.

Mitsubishi VS-45603 had power outage and when it came back on it says TV is locked. How do I unlock it?


Go into the 'Menu' -> then 'Setup' -> then 'A/V Connections'.

You should see an option called 'Locked to Input' switch it to 'No' and your problem should be solved!

My TV cuts on, then right back off


This is a very common problem among Toshiba & Mitsubishi RP TV's. It is caused by the circuit boards not communication with each other. The fix is about $600-700 with labor, parts, etc. I would suggest getting an LCD or LED TV.

No picture or sound on Mitsubishi VS-45603


you may want to inspect it for a fluid leak. Look on the signal pcb first. look for any signs of liquid on the connectors. If the leak is found and has been there for awhile before it finally shorted out a connector then chances are that it corroded the pcb

VS-45603 we have power but nothing else will show up on screen.


I would suspect bad solder connections on the convergence IC's caused one to short out a blow one or more pico fuses, thus causing the set to go into shutdown so as to stop further damage to the set. The TV will need to be seen by a profesional to confirm or deny this.
