Mitsubishi WD 62627 DLP shows only static after power

Mitsubishi WD 62627 DLP shows only static after power outage. Have had technician out twice now. Each time, he has merely entered a code to get it going again. He doesn't want to give me that code. Claims it is proprietary and he can't divulge it. I would like to have that code so that I can get the TV up and running the next time it happens.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Mitsubishi is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: I gave you the exact model. 2005JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: TV menu does not work. Same problem all sources/inputs. In the past, I could press "device" and the sources would pop up. I could select the correct one and I'd be off and running. Now, nothing happens when I press "device."JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: Been an issue for couple of years. Each time it happened, there was a storm.JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: Just need that code.
