johnyluv said: yes I have the WS-65315 older 2005 model.
Johnyluv don't stop with just one try. This procedure will need a few tries to get to this menu if you don't stick it the first time. You have within just a few seconds after you hear the tv power on to enter these inputs to get to this "factory reset menu". Please try again.
I have located similar explainations for this model. Try them too after you give it a few more goes.

I will presume you have the WS model listed here and have the Mitsubishi remote in working condition.
These sets have 3 hidden menus: Adjustment (stay out of that one), Convergence, and the OPTION MENU.
The option menu is the one you would want--it requires that you turn set on--enter a 4 digit number that is model specific.
In the option menu you can do a HARD reset which puts everything except convergence back to factory (that is stored in another area).
The reset puts all settings back to factory--set will come on once done on channel 3 in air band etc.
Let me know model number here is or is not correct and I will give you a link to the service manual with page number to look at---explains how to do the reset. Not a bad idea to save that manual as it contains all kinds of good info on this set.
AND ANOTHER POST REGARDING THE WS MODELS:
Unplug the unit for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. You might have to do this procedure a couple of times, to see if that helps. If not then,
Follow the steps below to reset system defaults to factory settings:
1. Press the MENU button followed by number buttons 1,2,and 3 on the remote control. Result: The Reset System Default menu screen is activated.
2. Press the ENTER button on the remote control. Result: The settings reset to factory defaults.
3. Press HOME or MENU on the remote control to return to the HOME or MENU screen.
IMPORTANT: This function is not recommended unless it is mandatoryto reset system defaults to factory settings. This operation CANNOT be undone and all customs settings will be erased.
