I came across this post trying to figure out why my WD-52525 green light does not stop blinking after the lamp light was replaced. I put a new lamp in and the set will not power on. Pushing reset button...no help. The original lamp light, the filament just shattered.
I would greatly appreciate it if you can send me the replacement procedures for the hi-temp capacitors
Thank You in advance,

Well, stop me if you've heard this one before... last weekend I noticed that the timer light on my four year old Mitsu 65 incher was blinking and the TV wouldn't power on. The reset switch didn't fix the problem and a quick look at Google led me here. If someone could fill me in on the repair procedure, it would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

JUST REPLACED MYALL 7 CAPACITERS ON MY SET AFTER HAVING THE BLINKING GREEN LIGHT SYNDROME. TV WORKED GREAT FOR ABOUT AN HOUR, THEN PICTURE STARTED FADING TO A VERY BLURRY WHITE COLOR WHERE YOU CAN'T SEE SCREEN. SOUND WORKS JUST FINE. ANY IDEA OF WHAT THE CUASE OF THOS IS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS.
update. after tv off for 2hrs. picture is near perfect, however it starts to fade to a blurry white after about 1 hr. could it be a faulty capaciter? or is something heating up causing this problem. t.v. is ws-65869
Same issue here. Please email the instructions if you can.
My set is 55", but I would assume the fix is the same. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hello: Posted this on another thread and thought i should add it here as well. Any information would be appreciated.
Hi Guys: 55711 with blinking green that won't go out. We were watching a DVD when we had a power failure. When the power came back on an hour or so later, the light was blinking. We've had this TV since Dec. 2001 with zero problems, but only use it half the normal time, so it's not like the typical 8 years of use. Nothing turns the light out, unplugging, reset, holding power and menu simultaneaously, unplugging for 5 minutes, etc. No sound when doing any of those things above. Did not see any comments on this same model number, but i have not checked all posts either. Assuming it's similar to most others. Would appreciate any specific information to this model number, to include instructions, etc. Sincerely, RTC

I have a WS-55859 with a blinking light. If your fix would work on it, please send me the instructions, if possible. My son is an electrical/electronic engineering technology major and knows his soldering.
sally just follow my comments posted on july 11.13. and 13, thanks.....too much to write. the kit will fit you. tell your brother to find the dm pc board and replace the capacitors and fuses. bye......................otto
We are looking at the Back of the Projection TV and it is a bit cumbersome as to how evasive it must be to gain access inside the massive Box. So, can you explain or at least list in some little details to what the "dm board" looks like, please? Because "as is" we don't want to do extra unnecessary work by unscrewing everything behind the TV for a specific component that may have a certain location that is unbeknownst to us where the "dm Board" resides. Does that make perfect sense?
hi from pr . the dm board is inside the big aluminum , is like a computer of a car. dm board pc is about 3x5 inches and has a lot of capacitors, dioes, fuses 2 . ect..... some models are 4, and some 7. in some cases you have to remove the back chasis....only two screws. please have a digital camera handy and take pictures of all incase you forget the reinstalling. be positive. otto
About a year ago this happened and I replaced the capactitors and everything was good. Now I have the blinking light after a power outage! And I even have a surge protector! Can you tell me which capactiors that I need to purcahse again? I bought them online and I cant remember which website I bought them at.
the capacitors are 16 volts. 1000uf. micro farads. they are in the dm board.any help welcome
As with all the others, I am graciously requesting your offer for the instructions, including cap p/ns, to reparir the Green Blinking light issue on the WS-55859. Thanks in advance.
I have a WD-65731 with a blinking green light. Can I please get the instructions to replace the bad caps? Can you also let me know what caps I should buy? Thank you very much in advance my friend! Please send to email@example.com.
After much research on the subject, I returned to a couple of the key forums from which I had extracted info from to report back that I performed this repair on my WS-55859 at a cost of under $20.00 (7 caps- 1000mF, 16V, 105C @ $1.90ea) and excluding the internet research time, took about 3 hours.
Here are a couple good posted sources for those in search of the info. I hope the authors are ok with me pointing folks their way.
This link will tell you exactly were to FIND and access the caps on a WS-55859: http://www.jeremyburns.com/Mitsubishi-Green-Blinking-Light-Fix.pdf
This link provides more info on the particular Cap selection and remove and replace: http://www.techlore.com/article/24711/Mitsubishi-Blinking-Green-Light-Repair-...
One last VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: The repair instructions that I found, do not talk about cap POLARITY. It is imperative that when you install the new caps, the plus/minus are correct (otherwise it will cost you $40 to fix...). In general, caps are not prominently marked, and so it is easy to assume they can go in either direction. Generally, there are markings on the cap band identifies the negative lead, but it is not always be labeled as "-". Also, most times the positive lead is longer than the negative. Correspondingly, the circuit board will have a "+" marked, but it is advisable to look at the old installed caps before removing to ensure you know what the polarity is suppose to be.
One last thing- As long as you have the back of your set off, take time to CAREFULLY clean the three lamps. You will be amazed at the improvement in picture quality once you have powered up and you are patting yourself on the back when the picture comes back to life from the evil and dreaded GBLOD.
Anyway. That's my story. My set has been working fine now for two weeks now.
Many thanks to those who shared and good luck to those that follow.
