Question about Mitsubishi WS-55857 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No Video or Sound

I have had this TV for seven years and it's worked fine until this weekend.  It started dropping out video segments of as TV show last night.  This morning it won't show anything (just blue screen).  I wired the satellite feed directly from the sat receiver box to the TV -- but nothing just blue screen. When I tried to access the TV's onscreen Menu (pressing the Menu button on the TV remote), the screen went all black -- when I hit that button again, it returned to a blue screen.  I toggle through all the input channels on the TV -- nothing changed but the channel ID in the upper left corner.  I can hear sound through my surround sound system -- so I know the sat receiver is working OK.  
I think the TV chipset is dead -- Is this worth fixing, or should I just buy a new TV?

I turn on my xbox but nothing shows on my tv


Lots of reports of problems like this have been reported among xbox consumers. The xbox is actually kinda unreliable (look at the price drop lol). If you still have warranty take it back. It's probably fried and never will work again.

We had the same problem just this weekend. However, we investigated it ourselves and discovered that you can take the microphone apart by unscrewing the two small screws inside the mic, under the music chips. Once the screws are out pry the two halves apart very carefully. Once we were inside, we discovered that the soundcard was loose and all we had to do is plug the sound card back in. Close 'er up and start up the show. Good Luck!

No video on tv monitor


To permanently fix the problem you have to send the unit to a programmer. A quick fix would be is to physically do it in your TV. While your Direct TV satellite receiver is ON, press the "TV/Video" or "Source" or "Input" button in your TV until the video will appear in the TV screen. All the TV has either one of this button.

Component Video inputs do not work


I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

Sony 36" tube TV


It definitely does not seem to be a problem with the Picture Tube. More like a cold solder. It is definitley not a job for a layman. Also, get a good technician to have a look, as locating cold solders is a labourous and time consuming process. It could also be possible that the main DC filter capacitor is getting dry, and may require replacement.
