The old Mitsubishi units had a super capacitor in the logic circuit instead of a backup battery. This capacitor became leaky over time, causing the problem you describe among others. Number one symptom is set has audio and dark or black picture when powered up. As the super cap charges to full voltage, picture comes and goes.
The 202 error is usually associated with a bad cable card. In your case, you need to check and see if you have one.
Did you run the Autoprogramming required to load and store the Channels?
If you are attempting to Add digital cable to your TV lineup, you must do that.
one note -- the digital stations on your TV set will not match the
lineup on the Cable box. The box was designed to line up the TV
stations according to the guide, but it uses proprietary programming
software and hardware to do that.
TV's cannot use the
software. so you end up with the low to high frequency channels in your
lineup, but it's not similar to the cable channel's lineup.
Try finding USA or TNT lickety-split....you won't.
doing the full autoprogramming, let me know if you get only the Analog
Channels from your Cable provider, or if you get NO channels locking in
at all. Either one will likely require replacing the Digital tuner
Hiya Margy, I know your query was 6 months ago,but I had a similar problem with connecting an Aiko SD set top box to our second older tv set & after 3 months only recently found the solution! Our problem? When connected the tv picture went green! Nobody,including Tandy staff,knew what to do! (We also have an Aiko STB connected to our newer tv and it worked fine from day one.) Anyway,it took 3 months but I finally worked it out. Our problem was settings on the TV,NOT the STB. Go to your TV's COLOR settings,pick a setting called 'COLOR SYSTEM' and change from 'ntsc' or 'pal'(depending on what country you're in) to AUTO. It isn't enough to change the tv system on the STB's SETUP menu,or to change it on the TV's SYSTEM settings,you have to change it in the TV's COLOUR settings as well. Change colour system to 'auto' and see if that helps.(And of course,change all system settings on both the tv & the STB to AUTO or the right system for your country if you haven't done so) Hope this helps! Good luck!
The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!
I cleaned a terminal inside my remote. It worked. I simply pushed 2, then Enter,
3, then Enter. I clicked Menu, scrolled down to Auto Demo, clicked arrow pointing right, and then entered "Off". Everything is solved.
