Question about Mitsubishi WS-65315 65" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Mitsubishi WS-65315 I am getting a black rectangular panel that blocks the picture. It is located in the lower left of the screen and covers about 1/3 of the picture. It sometimes has text across the top of the blacked out portion of the screen. it is a combination of letters and numbers. So far I have been able to eliminate the blacked out section by turning the tv off and then on again. Sometimes I have to do that more than once before it remains normal. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks in advance for your help. [email protected]

    Thanks Coldcut. That appears to have cured the problem. I am curious though why it just seems to appear for no known reason. I never use the factory remote since I have Dish I use their remote. Your solution worked and is much easier than turning the TV off and on to eliminated it. Hopefully it won't return. thanks again.

    This may be your picture in a picture.
    on the remote press the pip/pop button. is it in the same position as the black box and look the same.
    if not then try the menu button. and compare is it the same.

Where is the fuse box on a 1997 Oldsmobile 88?

I assume the fuse box locations for a 1997 Olds 88 would be the same as for a 1999 - which are: (1) In the lower cover panel below the instrument cluster just left of the steering column - with a snap-off cover. (2) Passenger side 'kick panel' - side panel under the dashboard just forward of the door - lower cover panel underneath the dashboard and next to the firewall must first be removed. (3) Under the hood on passenger side on the firewall - need to remove black plastic outer cover (1/4 turn finger latches) then two black plastic inner covers (side spring latches).

Black rectangular is covering the lower part of the screen. think I may have turned on a block and can not figure out how to turn it off.

It sounds like you turned on the captions for the hearing impaired, go to menu and scroll down to captions, press the right arrow 1,2,3,off make sure cursor is over off and press enter that should get rid of the black box, some remotes have the caption button separate from the menu.

Problem with Mitsubishi WS-65315 65 in picture simply off the screen. too big for the screen so u cant see 15% of all picture. on any input source like cable, dvd, components.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture
