I have seen a lot of posts for the blinking green light of death on the WD-52525 Mitsubishi TV set, along with a number of possible fixes.  I have yet to hear from anybody that has actually successfully fixed the problem.  I have heard from a member that Mitsubishi says it is a problem with the Thermal Switch.  I have heard overwhelmingly from tech experts that it has something to do with bad capacitors and they need to be changed.  I have heard from members that changing the capacitors did not work, but techs still insist this is the likely problem. 

Has anybody successfully fixed the blinking green light of death that can share their fixes with the rest of us poor souls?  Thank you.

Yes: I replaced the 4 caps (16v 1000 uF 105 deg. C) on the DM board and it's working several weeks now!! First did not properly seat DM back in the slot and it didn't work; it's a bit tricky to get it properly seated. Well worth the effort and the 10 bucks I spent on 4 caps. My TV is the 65513; currently working on a friends WD 62525 set; just started last night; having trouble figuring out how to get the DM out. My chassis was way different.

Good Luck

Thanks for the response BTO. I will be attempting this in the near future. I have a WD 52525. I downloaded the service manual for this from techlore.com. It may be more closer to your friends chasi. Let me know if you can't find it and I'll email it to you if you want.

Thanks again

I'm in the middle of trying to repair our friend's WD 62525 that has the green light deal happening. I was able to download a V26 chassis replacement pdf file from megaupload website http://www.megaupload.com/?d=6MKC3A3V It has more detail of connectors and assembly/dissassembly steps. I'm having some trouble trying to get the DM out of the set. My 65513 was way easier. Once I get the DM out, it should be a breeze I hope as I said before, the caps replacement in my TV has worked; just be carefull and do as good a job as possible so board does not get damaged from heat/ solder.

Hey BTO, I replaced my caps, 6 out of 8 were swollen. I put everything back together and the blinking green light went away after one minute. I was then able to turn on my TV which I was unable to do in the past. I enjoyed 15 minutes of TV and it turned itself off without warning and the damn green blinking light started again.
Seems to be the same problem. I'm going to look more closely at my Thermister (Thermal Sensor Switch) at the lamp. I read that this could also be the problem.

BTO did yo ever fix your friends wd-62525?   I started into mine got the service manual and bought caps that I found for other Mits blinking green lights of death and then I saw a boat load of caps on my the power board and now i am searching for a true solution to my models problem.  I did not see any ref to the DM board in the service manual.

I am having the same blinking light of death problem on my WD-52525 after moving. Started before the move and now it will not come on at all. Previously it would blink for a bit and then after unpluging and pluging in the cord it would usually start working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please email directions to dgoudie@calfrac.com if you have them for the dm cap fix.

thanks for the help

See post near the end of topic "Mitsubishi WD-52525 has a continuious blinking light" in this forum.  Talks about communication issue between boards and has a fix for it.

My idea of a fix is to replace all caps on the format and dm boards, and any bad caps on the power supply and tuner boards. I've tried measuring and replacing caps that looked bad, tested bad, or were listed in online guides as problem caps. Best solution is to replace them all.

I use leaded caps in place of the surface mount ones since they are easier to install and I feel are more reliable.

If anyone has given up on their set, I'd love to get a format board and a dm board as spares. Let me know. thx.

Need help here also, blinking green light problem on WD-62527 and yes that is the model on back of TV and on paper tag with s/n. Need the service manual or any help. I got the V24 chassis help but its now even close figure it must be V26. lynngibson40@yahoo.com Thanks

Mitsubishi now has a program for these sets with the V-26 chassis. Call their customer relations department. They are rebuilding these sets and paying for it. If you have any trouble with it when you get it back they will replace the television with a new one. You must have the original purchase receipt.

July 15, 2010 3:34 PM

I am a service tech at a mitsubishi warranty service center. Mitsubishi can't even fix the problem. We don't work on the v-26 chassis anymore. We pull the chassis out and ship it to Mitsubishi and let them mess with it, they replace all the caps on both the DM and Power board and some other things. They won't tell us what all they do. Anyway about 6 out of 10 will go back out (start blinking again) with in about 90 days. Then Mitsubishi will pay us to go pick up the Tv and scrap it. and they give the customer a new set. So Mitsubishi is having a very hard time fixing the problem also. I do know the thermal sensor has nothing to do with the blinking light problem. However they are also paying us to replace them (free of charge to the customer) because they are defective also. All i can say is good luck trying to fix this problem. If you have your receipt from where you purchase the set Mitsubishi will do the repairs for you for free. and if it goes back out they will replace the set for free. Where I work we have scraped out 40 to 50 of them for Mitsubishi after they replaced the customers set. contact mitsubishi about your problem. They are standing behide their sets believe it or not.

vcrdavid,

I have a 62525, and if I am reading your message correctly. I should have a certified Mitsubishi repair company come out to repair the green timer blinking light problem. They will send the board into the manufacture and if the problem happens again. The manufacture will replace my TV for free. Is this correct?

WD62525
Several years ago we had the black screen of death and we replaced most of the capacitors. It has worked fine until we had a TS roll through. The TV was plugged in but was not turned on. We lost power for about 10 seconds. I then decided to unplug the TV. When I plugged it back in, the green light flashed quickly. I attempted a re set but that did not work. I've gone through ail of the responses in this thread and they mostly indicate capacitors. We took it apart to check the capacitors. They all look good. Any other ideas?
