Question about Mitsubishi VS-50605 50" Rear Projection Television

4 Answers

No picture When the tv is turned on all I get is a snowy screen. I changed cable boxes to make sure that wasn't the problem. It wasn't. When I press the menu button on the front of the set, the menu appears so I do get a picture there, but thats all.

Normally, snow is an indication that there is no signal from the tuner. Bypassing the tuner by changing to a video input should show you a blank screen. If you still see snow, it suggests that the set has not switched from tuner mode to video. I would look for a missing voltage in the power supply. I wuold look for a missing 12V supply.

You either have a bad coable connection or a bad tuner. The snow is because no signal is being detected. This can be a bad tuner or a bad power feed to the tuner. From a repair perspective it could be as simple as a bad connection inside the set that stops the power to tuner. If you feel comfortable working inside the set and can solder, resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. If that does not resolve the problem, you may need to request service.

Please note that because the menu shows up, the majority of hte set is working correctly. You should also try one of the video inputs. I suspect that they will work as well. If so, its another vote for a bad tuner.

Usually a snowy picture means that you have a bad ground connection. You should see that some channels are beter than others. Verify that the cable connection is good. Try a different cable if you can. If that has no effect, than we need to start looking at the tuner itself. If you can change channels but just have a poor picture, chances are that a resolder of the tuner section will resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

I can suggest unplugging the TV and leaving it off over night. This will do a power reset and may correct the problem. If not the only way to determine the problem with the TV is testing the circuits. For a simple repair you can expect to pay in the ballpark of $100 for the repair.

Hope that helps.....

Sony KDL-V32XBR1 Displays only snowy picture


Here are a few more troubleshooting steps you can try when your TV picture is just snow. I see that you have already rebooted your TV, but did you turn your set-top box off and on, too?

1. Does the picture show when you play a DVD?
2. Check all of the connections between the TV, outlet and set-top box and make sure everything is secured.
3. Is your TV set to the correct channel (typically 3, but in some areas 2 or 4)?
4. Press any key on the remote to see if the correct mode lights up. (Ex: if you have cable, the cable button should light up). If it doesn't, press the correct mode's button to regain control and change channels.
5. Call your service provider and make sure it's not an overall service outage.
6. Do you have sound but no picture? If so, it could mean a backlight failure.

For more suggestions, see TV black screen or snowy screen for troubleshooting and solutions. I hope this helps!

Tv has only snowy screen. Used the remote to


What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

No movie picture


If you want to record from cable to your vcr the usual configuration is either cable to cable box, cable box to vcr, and vcr to tv. If you want to get rid of the snowy pictures, you can plug the cable box directly to the tv and separately to the vcr, and you can also plug the vcr into the tv. but the tv has to have two inputs
the best configuration will be the black, screw in, coaxial cable from the cable box to the television and the red, white and yellow RCA plugs from the cable box to the vcr in.
then the vcr our red whit and yellow cables to the back of the tv.
To watch vcr, switch the tv to video mode
to watch cable, switch tv to channel 3 or 4, depending on the cable service.
please let me know if you have questions.

Lines on screen


Can you take a picture of the screen and post it? It is not possible for both the horizontal and vertical stages to fail at the same time to produce a cross. A picture of the screen would help significantly.
