Question about Mitsubishi VS-50111 50" Rear Projection Television

Mitsubishi va-50111 television

I have recently moved and can not locate the remote to my TV and can not turn it on. Is there a reset button so that I can? The buttons were turned off on the front of the TV so that my 9 month old daughter couldn't mess with them, now I can't even mess with them. Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Larry

You have to hold the menu button for about 8 seconds. You'll get a sign at the bottom of the screen that says "Front Panel Lock Disabled"

I lost my remote during a move and can't change formats on my tv

You are going to need an original Mitsubishi remote--I do not think in the main menu there is a way to do this without the remote: PART NUMBER FOR THIS REMOTE IS: 290P111010

Almost any Mitsubishi remote that has the FORMAT button on it will work.

Where are the fuses for mitsubishi 50111 located and what do they look like?

There is only one user serviceable fuse on the TV set on the PC board, near where the power cored enters the TV (you will need to remove the back to check this fuse (it is labeled F9D00).

The other five fuses look like small resistors and will require desoldering to replace -- I wouldn't recommend doing this without testing the fuses with a Ohmeter first, to determine if they are bad.

Run the diagnostics.

With the TV power cord plugged in, press the 'INPUT and 'MENU' buttons at the same time -- use the buttons on the front of the TV, NOT the buttons on the remote; a diagnostic Error Code Operational Check will begin, utilizing the 'POWER ON' LED (the green 'POWER ON' indicator light).

There will be a pattern of two sets of flashes, with a pause in bewteen flashes; this sequence of flashes will be repeated a total of five times.

The Error Code designations are listed below:

Error Code Description
12 No eror has occurred.
21 X-Ray Protect circuit.
22 Short Protect circuit.
23 Horizontal Deflection failure.
24 Vertical Deflection failure.

I hope this information helps.

Mitsubishi WS-55807 television

this tvhas a built in safety feature, fuse, sometimes you can hear a faint popping noise when you turn the tv on and it shuts down. This feature was designed to prevent power surges from hurting your tv any more than it already is. You will have to have someone repair the small problem you have now and reset the tv. 10% of the time you can try holding doen the menu button for 10 seconds and/or unlpugging it for 4 hours to do a hard reset. This hardly ever works though. It will probably cost you about 200 to 500 to fix it. sorry
