What is the problem you faces with this TV? Provide more details please.

DTV is HD input but look to see if red lens is lit====set does have a hard reset which might cure it if it is a issue---it is based at the exact model number, a four digit code and the working Mitsubishi remote control.

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Aug 27, 2012

Based on model number listed here:

If set powers up and green light comes on and goes out a few seconds later:

Press and hold menu and input (source) buttons at same time on the front of the set for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, pause and repeat it for a total of five times.

If the set has been unplugged you will have to plug it in and turn it on letting it fail (unplugging will clear all errors).

Let me know error code and I will explain--2,2 is most common and most easy one to fix.

Convergence and is fixable.

Do the self test this model has:

When set shuts off and on front of set power light goes out:

Press and hold on the front of the set both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink an error code: most common is 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and then repeats it several times.

This feature will narrow down where the problem is.

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

Error code 23 on this set means that the Horizontal Deflection circuit of the set has failed. Usually this points to a damaged Horizontal Deflection IC and sometimes the HOT(Horiziontal Output Transistor) as well, not to mention the resistors that are blown when the IC failed. Replacing these parts should resolve the problem.
PS:Note that the Deflection circuit involves certain high-voltage components and prior to repair it is advisable to discharge the high voltage before attempting the repair. You will also need to know how to use a multimeter(to test the HOT and look for blown resistors) and a soldering gun. If you think you can do it yourself, let me know and I will provide you detailed step by step instructions.

I suspect your fault is a common one and the convergance ICs have failed.

Is it showing any error code and have you tried entering the self test mode?

Turn the TV Off and let the Power Light go out

Press and hold both the Menu and Input Buttons on the front of the set at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink an error code. The most common is 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause, and then repeats several times.

Please let me know what you find.

2 blinks pause and then 2 blinks is a "22" error code for shorts detect upon self test. The unit will not power up unless the faulty parts are isolated and replaced with new one. Affected parts is the convergence circuitry which the convergence IC's and pico fuses' gone bad.
You have to replaced these parts :
2 IC's - STK392-570
2 fuses - 5Amp pico fuse
Convergence Repair kit is available at this LINK, it includes instructions on how to repair/replace the said parts.
Your unit is a V17 chassis, scroll down to that link and find your repair kit which is cost $55.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

How long have you been using this TV? Have you ever changed the lamp?

This problem is more or less like a lamp problem. The lamp is dying and it will get to a point when the TV won't display any picture at all.

I would suggest you replace the lamp of your TV. Mostly likely, you might need to replace the ballast as well. The ballast helps to ignite the lamp for sharper picture quality.

Let me know if you have any more questions....

Good luck.

Replace any power strip that the TV may be connected to.

If it still won't work, then whatever tripped the breaker has caused sever electrical damage to your TV. It requires professional servicing.

Unlock PIP poicture in a picture.Thats why you have 3 pictures side by side

Mitsubishi... | Answered on Aug 23, 2010

If the manual button on the set works the problem is almost certain to be with the remote---These sets do have a keyboard lockout for the controls on the front of the set but it will not affect the remote---it is there so children can be prevented from playing with front buttons.

I have fixed a lot of remotes---usually what you will find is if a single or a few buttons either do not work at all OR you have to press very hard to get them to work----something got spilled on the front of the remote--it does not take very much.

The way this works is ALL the little buttons on the front of the remote are really on mat made of latex etc---on the bottom of the mat are round black coated tabs----the mat lays flat on a circuit board and the coated tabs touch matching black points on the board.

Liquid (soda, coffee etc) gets in between the mat and the circuit board and no contact occurs.

Most of these remotes wholesale for about 40 dollars but you may find one on EBAY for less.

I have taken a lot of them apart; remove and wash the mat with soapy water and dry completely. Clean the contact points on the board with denatured alcohol and dry.

put it back together and bingo--everything works.

The remote pictured is typical of Mitsubishi sets and almost any Mitsubishi remote will confirm if this is your problem or not.

Thanks for using FixYa. The issue is with the convergence ICs going bad and needs to be replaced. It’s not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs(STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime. There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself you can buy and repair it yourself. If you want to take assistance from a professional then please click on this link to contact a local authorized repair center in your area. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
