Question about Mitsubishi WS-65511 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote

T.V. will not turn on with remote.  When turned on manually, there is no volume control.  The channels automatically start flipping through channels lowest to highest, but you can't use the remote to control anything.  You can't manually change the channel up, only down.  You can't change the device without the remote.  It's like the t.v. doesn't recognize the remote anymore.  This all started by just trying to change the device mode to vcr, to watch a tape.

Found this in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."

You might need to set up the channels in the menus. Try auto scanning the channels. Read you operating manual on setting up the TV.

TV flips through channels at 2 channels per second.

It sounds like a button is stuck or bad. I would spray some electrical cleaner on the buttons 1st. If that don't work, the switch is probably bad.

Just press the buttons on the TV randomly, sometimes this combination works in starting the TV w/o a remote. After that use the remote for the dish to flip channels, but you will have to set the sound manually from time to time.......sodeep

Mitsubishi WS65511 Rear Proj. TV still have resetting problem after DM caps & conv. IC replacement. Any other ideas or tests to do ? Any TV old timers that remember how to diagnose boards ? My Mistubishi WS 65511 Rear Projection TV runs fine for 15 minutes, Then kicks off & has the blinking green light while it resets. You can turn it on again & get another 15 minutes. Over & over, Then it may work fine for 6 hours or more. Seems to be worse when cold. And the problem has been more frequent with months. So I replaced the 7 Elec. Caps on the DM board. They weren't bulging & looked fine, But I put in 7 new ones. Did not improve at all. Same problem, Same time, 15 minutes. While in there I looked at everything. Nothing bulging, burn't, or visual. Something is going bad & causing a over load that triggers a shut down & reset. Any Help or Ideas PLEASE ! Any possible parts that I can try that might have done the same for you. I can solder in parts, But don't know what to try with it being so erratic. Also, does anyone have a service manual with wiring diagram. OR should I just try buying used boards off EBAY & try replacements. I really want to keep this monster in the living room. I've grown accustomed to her face. And the wife likes to pile nick-nacks on top. There should be lots of these replaced with flat screens by now. When it works, The picture is perfect, sometimes all day long.
