Three nights ago, our power flickered off and then right back on during the night which made the TV go off.  I tried turning the TV back on and the little green power light keeps flashing and will not go off.  I have unplugged it several times, waited for 25 minutes to as long as 8 hours, but once I plug it back in, the little green power light will not stop blinking.  My power button will not turn the tv on until the green light stops blinking.  What could be the cause of this?  How much does this type of repair cost?

I have the Mitsubishis WS-65711 model tv and it just went out on me.  I turn on the tv and the power light comes on for about 5 seconds then goes off.  I don't get the blinking light that most people are talking about.  I tried to power off the tv and unplugged it over night and it still won't come on.  I've had this tv for about 2 years (purchased new).  Any help would be appreciated on where to start trouble shooting before I call in a professional repair person.

Thanks in advance.

Hi. I have a WD-73733. I had the TV for 2 weeks from Amazon.com and I got the blinking light. I called Amazon and they replaced it. I got the new one today. I was setting it up and power failure (UPS couldn't handle every component in my rack on) and I have the green blinking light of death. Again. I have unplugged it and am leaving it unplugged, hoping this will help.

Does anyone actually have success with leaving it unplugged for an hour or so? Or leaving it plugged and blinking? I'm willing to take apart the DM board and fix it but am I going to need to fix this at every power outage? Or when my system shuts down to "save" my equipment from a power surge?

I do live in Florida...

Thanks,

Larry,

I have a WS-55813 Mitsubishi Diamond.  Thank you for sending out this info to people.  I must have sold close to 500 of Mits' tvs and earned this one for free, to only be saddened that I woke up to a blinking green light and no way to resolve the issue as in the past by unplugging or hitting the reset.  I would be very grateful if you could pass the info on to me.  My email address is cheshire132002@yahoo.com.  Once again, thank you for your time.

Hey Larry -  I've written before and you've been so kind as to send me the information on the DM board capacitor fix.  My Mitsubishi model is the HDTV 55909.  I opened it up yesterday and found that the capacitors (7 of them) are on a separate small power supply board that feeds the DM board.  It's in the shield box along with the DM board.  The capacitors looked fine... no swelling at the tops and no evidence of leakage.  I'm stumped now.  Could these capacitors be the problem on this model?  Please let me know, and send any additional information that might help with this model.  I'll order three more capacitors and do the fix if you think it has a chance!!!

 Many thanks Larry.  VERY glad you're there.

It certainly could be the capacitor, even if they look ok.

Larry Dillon said: Rick, I do not have that service manual but one is available HERE for you to download. Good Luck with your TV set. When you find out what was done to the set, please post back with us.

Well the tech just came out. The person that took my call thought the lamp was bad and sent the tech out with a new one. The tech said its a communications issue, and that he has to order a new board. He didnt specify which board, his quote " not the caps issue, he has seen that before on earlier models, and has never seen this happen on this model ". Any how he ordered the board and will be back in a few days. I'll keep you posted.

Larry,

Thank you for the "green blinking light" repair info for our WS-65513. I got the DM board out ok and all 4 caps are bulged up a lot. Would 100uf 25v caps be a good replacement?

Thanks for your help...

December 3, 2007 5:10 PM

No snickers, those will not work, you need 1000 mfd not 100. Try these.  http://www.mouser.com/search/refine.aspx?Ntt=140-HTRL16V1000-RC%09

Larry,

 I came home to the perma-blinking light problem tonight--I own a Mitsubishi WS-65613.  Is there any way you can send me the repair documents as well?  Also, I'm somewhat of an electronics novice--is the 25V or 35V capacitor going to make a difference safety-wise as opposed to the original 16V capacitors Mitsubishi used?

 Thanks in advance,

dragnf16@yahoo.com

December 6, 2007 1:50 PM

I will send the info to you. I use the High temp 105c 16 volt capacitors. I will have a link where you can buy them from without waiting. And they are cheap too! Good Luck with the repair.
