    I fixed it myself....unplugged the tv for 5 minutes to allow it to reboot (kind of) then turned it on with the remote....worked fine, just had to reset up the channels etc.

Hello,

IS it a universal remote? If yes, remove the battery, wait for 10 seconds, fix the battery back in and re-register the remote with the TV by entering the code. But it the remote works with the TV without code, try again. If this doesn't fix the problem, please read further.

Try the remote with new batteries, ff new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

I hope the above makes sense to you.....

Good luck.

MITSUBISHI WS55907 Diamond 1080 TV bought in 2000 was powered off, unplugged, for a year. Turned the set on with remote last night and worked fine, had very crisp picture.


Your TV was waiting between 2000 and now to suffer power supply failure. It is very frustrating to go from everything working perfectly to nothing.

My set is plugged into a cable box. the tv will not turn on either manually or with the remote.


Plug the power cord directly into a wall power outlet, and make sure that the standby light is lit (turn it on/off manually to see if anything changes). If there isn't any light, then it's most likely broken.
If the TV works again, being plugged into the power outlet in the wall, then the problem is with the cable box (i bet you figured that out too).

Tv won't turn on


Are you using a remote, or try to turn on manually. If your remote does not work, it needs to be programed to your t.v. And all remotes and t.v.s have different codes. Sometimes your cable provider will help you program your remote, or reset your cable box. My remote for my cable was not programmed, so I had to read the instructions myself to get the remote to work with the cable box channels.

Tv will not turn on


Look for any loose contacts in the power cord. Wear protective gloves, shake the power cord when the TV is on, and find out whether it is getting on/off. If not, the problem lies inside, like dry solder and/or leaky/dry capacitors.

MY REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK AFTER DARK


bdale

You may have IR interference at night because of other items you turn on at night. Try leaving everything off except your TV and receive, try your remote to make sure it functions. Then turn 1 item on at a time, try the remote to see if it works or stops working. Once it stops working, the last item you turned on is causing the interference. It is then a matter of relocating that item so it won't continue to interfere with the remote functions. I hope this helps.

Pop the batteries out and use brand new batteries then try the code again. Sometimes its good to let the remote sit for a few hours with no batteries after locking up the codes.
