Question about Mitsubishi WD-73827 73" HDTV DLP TV

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WD 65737 black screen

I've tried unplugging and resetting but the screen is still black and doesn't respond to any buttons on the front panel or remote. Bulb is about a year old. Leading up to this the tv would occasionally just turn its self off. Unplugging worked a couple of times and now nothing and shuts off after a few mins.

Sounds like the back light has gone mate. Unfortunately this usually makes the tv obsolete

If the green front panel LED blinks continuously and the TV never comes on, its an issue with the "DM" board. When these TVs are first plugged in, the green LED should blink for 30 sec. to a minute or so. This is the TV booting up, reading its software. Mitsubishi has been having problems with this circuit for several years. In may cases the only permanent solution is to have the chassis rebuilt by Mitsubishi at considerable cost and inconvience. The chassis may have to be sent back to Mits for this rebuild. Call Mits and ask for help.

Check that the lamp door is closed all the way. There is a saftey switch that closes from the door being on all the way. If not the status light will keep blinking. There is also a switch on the air filter door.

Panasonic PT-50LC13 50 in. Rear Projection HDTV Does anyone know how to reset the timer when the picture doesn't come on (black screen)?

Turn on the television after the new DLP bulb and housing are inserted into the chassis.

  • 2 Move close enough to the set to reach it easily. Hold the "VOL" button on the front of the television, while holding the "SPLIT" button down on the remote. Do this for 5 seconds. Note that some models require holding the "PIP" button on the remote in lieu of the "SPLIT" key. Verify which model is relevant prior to beginning the process.
  • 3 Verify that the reset took by waiting for a message to appear on-screen indicating a successful reset. Additionally, the "LAMP" indicator on the front of the television will go out.

    I got a shock (static, it's winter here) and then the source menu started flashing on the screen and continues to do so. None of the buttons are working now (on the unit, or the remote) and I'm unable to...

    I would suggest you pull the AC plug overnight to see if this will reset it. There are components that may take hours to discharge. If this doesn't help, you may have killed the IR receiver (or the cicuit that follows it) although it should happen on any newer consumer electronics that is properly designed and tested.
    Both the set-top buttons and the remote eventually act on the same control circuit and if that has failed, it will not respond to remote or local control.

    Toshiba 36a43 tv has the demonstration screen running constantly over regular programming. Can't get it to shut off, remote will not respond & there is no reset button. Help please?

    The problem is most likely the switches on the front panel. If the manual buttons are constantly shorting out, then the TV will try to respond to those buttons, and not the remote. Manual buttons almost always override a remote. Check the front panel for shorts, or if the buttons are constantly depressed.

    Tv wont respond because device menu is changing through each device

    I had a similar problem: my WS-55511 would not respond to the remote and the front control buttons (with the exception of Power) cycled through the Device Menu. I solved this problem by disconnecting the front panel. Here's how to do it: 0. Unplug the TV
    1. Remove the speaker grill from the front by pulling forward: there are no screws. 2. Disconnect the two cables that are exposed after the grill is removed. 3. Plug the TV back in, wait for 5 minutes to reset. 4. Try using the remote.  Hope this helps!

    Try unplugging the tv for a few minutes. This reset the front panel lock on my JVC tv. I got it from the manual, which I found at the JVC site by Googling the specific model of the tv along with JVC and manual. I found the manual right away.
