Question about Mitsubishi VS-50604 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

PIP is causing problems

I have never used the PIP feature, but I had the TV turned off for a week and when I turned it back on only Input A&B work and the PIP screen won't go away. When it is on, the rest of the screen is gray. When I switch the PIP with the main screen, the PIP screen is black and will not dissapear.

You are lucky in that this is problem you can solve yourself with a little diligence. The set has defaulted to the 'Theater Mode'. It happens frequently with this model. It is merely a setting in the customer menu. Go into either SETUP or ADVANCED SETTINGS and look for something refering to 'Thearter Mode' and turn it off. An owners manual would help locate it.

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

Pip on d52w20


when i was on digital cable my pip didnt work either. with sat, the box offers a pip feature. if you have basic cable or using an antanna the pip on your tv should work. maybe its just your cable or sat not allowing you to use that feature.

Can't sem to get the PIP to work


In order to use the PIP feature, you Must have 2 different sources to view. Your current connections prohibit this. See if you can get say, a DVD or VCR connection going into the set also and you've got a fix!...accordianman

Picture in picture


i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner.
check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip.
start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.

hope this helps,
trin

Mitsubishi 50" Projection TV (Model VS-50603) Has sound but no picture


MJBNATL:

I reluctantly scheduled a technician to come out next week and take a look at my set. I was going to pay, at minimum, $65 for the service visit. I was then blessed with the intutition to do a bit more research regarding the PIP box being stuck on my television and other input functions (Inputs 1,2, and DVD) being unavailable.

I stumbled across a post on the internet that mentioned that the VS50603 can reset certain error conditions by pressing and holding the Input and Menu buttons (simulatneously) on the front panel on the TV while it is off. At some point after initiating this internal reset the LED light should starting flashing at defined intervals. The number of flashes correlate to a particular error code. Please go to the Mitsubishi website and download the owners manual (VS50609 in my case, couldn't locate VS50603) to lookup what the various error codes mean.

It seemed to me that that the LED flashing did not start immediately after pressing the Input and Menu buttons. In fact, I awoke the next morning to find the TV off but the LED flashing 10 times, pausing briefly, then flashing 10 times again. The sequence of the flashes mean something. Here again, consult your owner's guide for specifics.

Long story short, after awaking to find the LED flashing, I then turned the TV on and voila-my big screen was back minus that pesky PIP box prominently displayed.

I hope this helps someone like it helped me!! Truly a Blessing for sure.

Video input 4


If you changed PIP then you reversed your tuner, you need to flip back and is input 4 HD on this set? Or S-Video or just another component video? What is wrong with 3-1?
