Hello and sorry you're having problems. Did the initial problem occur after a storm or power outage? Also, does anything at all show on the screen when it's turned on (Mits welcome screen, etc.)? When was the last time the lamp was replaced?

problem started when a friend used the wrong remote to turn tv on. I have att u-verse and was controlling tv and cable box with att remote. she used Mitsu remote and don't know which button she hit. got tv to come on yesterday. only got blue screen. Lamp was replaced in November
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Please elaborate on blue screen. So when you turn the TV on a blank blue screen shows up?

yes. still here. yes a blue screen with only the channel info in the corner. couldn't change channel with remote. it wasnt on the channel it needed to be to view my att programming
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
What remote are you trying to use- the TV remote, or the ATT remote right now please? You need to use the Mits remote to change the INPUT/DEVICE the TV is set to. Are you saying even with confirmed good batteries in the Mits remote that you are unable to change the Input?

TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Please press power, when the set shuts off follow these steps to get an error code. Let me know what you get. Error Code Operational CheckNote: The TV must be in “Shut Down” and not have been switched Off, to perform the Error Code OperationalCheck. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to “12” No Error.Pressing the front panel “DEVICE” and “MENU” buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds,activates the Error Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problemhas occured since the last Initalization.Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.• The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.Example: If the Error Code is “32”, the LED will flash three times, pause, and then flash two times.

the timer light is flashing really fast, the fan comes on then goes after about 30 seconds. light continues to flash then stops. repeat this cycle as long as tv is plugged in.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 years ago
Please read and follow the steps above. Let me know what you get. This is the error code built into the set.
