Question about Mitsubishi WS-65611 65" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Device menu continously selecting input devices

My Mitsubishi 65" rear projection TV turns on with the device menu on the screen and it is continuously highlighting or selecting the inputs, but does not change them. The TV does not respond to any menu selections, it jsut keeps scrolling through the inputs. I fixed this once by pulling the input card from the board and powering up the unit which I assume caused it to reload the input software, but that only lasted a couple of months before it started doing the same thing and now pulling the input card does not fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes. I've tried both the reset button on the front of the TV and also a hard boot without any luck.

    When I got it working the last time, I pulled the ASSY-PWB-2HDW board and power the TV on without that board. Next, I replaced that board and pulled the ASSY-PWB-3DYC/MD board and again power on the unit. I replaced that board, powered on the unit and everything worked, and has been working for about 4 months and then it started the same device menu scrolling when my son tried to change imputs from DISH to PS2.

    Fixed! I found another post where someone had a simular problem. Seems as though I either have a stuck "Device" button on my remote or the "Device" button on the front panel of the TV was stuck. I pulled the batteries out of my remote and cleaned the front panel buttons with air pressure than moved the buttons on the front panel, with pretty good force, to see if they were stuck. When I forcebly pushed the "Device" button the menu quit scrolling and I was able to make device changes.

    I'm not sure how pulling the boards the first time fixed it except we were pushing the front panel buttons at the same time and probably un-stuck the button at the same time we pulled the boards.

    I had the same problem, the remote was not working at all; but I can use the TV buttons to turn on, and it stayed on one mode (device mode) only, can not use the Device button to made changes.

    I fixed it by using AIR DUSTER to blow the Device button from outside to clean it. After that, everything works normally. My remote also works.

Many thanks!
We just fixed our Mitsubishi with a clean empty plastic bottle that blew air onto the front panel buttons and fixed our same problem as you described. Hope it stays repaired!
Thanks again as we were stumped as to the repair.

Did you try resetting using the RESET button on the front of the TV? Also what "input" card are you pulling?

I doubt it as it was never designed for that kind of input, Component works best on this set and it should have only one HD input for a box marked in the menu as DTV.

A few things you could and should try, try something on a different input if you are using the coax connection just to know if problem exists that way, could be a bad tuner but that can be got around, also if on all inputs the set does have a hard reset that requires the Mitsubishi remote and a four digit code to enter the hidden option menu.

check the other inputs first please and let me know.

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn

IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

If one or more of the inputs is "missing" or not there you may need to do a hard reset of the TV with the original remote.

If you want to try this confirm the actual model number and I will tell you how to do it.

Problem with device menu & remote

Remove the front trim plate below the manual switches, may have to remove the speaker covers to access this area, remove the switch mounting plate 3 screws, turn switches over and unplug the little white electrical connection for the switches. TV should work perfect with the remote now. Not sure what is wrong with the switches just yet, but suspect a resistor problem.

You cannot change the setting on the TV itself. you need to go through the settings on the equiptment you have plugged into the TV to change their settings to display a different resolution.

Cycling by itself

Pressed the ff on the tv remote...Menu careful in selecting an option...have to make sure that what you are going to highlight or select is initial..selecting E2 reset would render your tv unusable..don't attemp to make any other changes on the service menu...JUST SELECT other option should be selected on the service menu screen.
