Mitsubishi Green Blinking light of death

This information applies to Mitsubishi sets that have a Model number beginning with VS, WS, WT etc. It does not apply to the WD series of sets made later.

ONLY 1 of 2 things can cause this problem----

First thing to do is remove front speaker grill--it should pull out and is secured with plastic pegs--behind it you will find an inspection plate---

Notice the one or two pairs of wires coming from the front keyboard of the set---remove the inspection plate and follow the wires to the right--you can unplug both plugs(most have two and they are marked with letters and different sizes so you cannot get them wrong)

The idea here is to remove the front keyboard with its reset button etc from the circuit---You will still be able to try to turn the set on with the remote---

These sets have a Receiver that is called a DM board--(large metal box to the left as you look from the back) and if the power goes out the green light will blink for about 70 seconds and then go out---it is the Receiver booting up. It is called the DM board.

If disconnecting the keyboard allows the set to turn on--you have a bad reset switch and two choices---either operate the set only with the remote or to remove the front screen and get at the reset switch (it is tiny) and remove and/or replace it.

If disconnecting the keyboard does not restore the set to operation---the receiver is bad---there are 4 or more caps and some pico fuses that can fail in that unit---Mitsubishi no longer sells or repairs these--if it is bad and not the caps there is a company you can send the unit to and have it repaired--if you need to know their name let me know---

You can call them and get a quote for repairing the receiver.

There are sites on the internet selling a "kit" with the caps etc and instructions for replacing them---if they are bad the silver tops of them will be bulged up and not flat.

My mitsubishi projection screen tv has a blurred picture. You can still make it out but the colors are off. I took the back off the tv and the red and blue lights inside have a squiggled picture inside of them but the green one is perfect.


If it looks 3d and will not adjust in the customer mode(convergence) you have a convergence circuit problem.

Get me the model number off the back--it should begin with a VS or WS or WT followed by 5 numbers and I will tell you what may be involved fixing it.

For most of the WS & WT series sets I have start to finish step by step instructions for this kind of repair.

Television screen bows downward. Kind of looks like its in 3d mode but it bends down like an upside down U. Also gets staticky, squiggly lines of diff color appear for a few seconds here and there. The bowing goes on and off but has gone on longer, as time has passed. Mitsubishi Projection HD 1080 series about 10 years old. Its between a 50 and 55 inch.

Mitsubishi Model VS-5061


Go to the V-chip settings menu. When prompted for your password, hold "9" and "QV" buttons on the remote at the same time. You will then be prompted to enter a new password.
If you need to unlock front panel buttons that were locked under a forgotten code, hold the menu button on the front panel for 8 seconds.

As far as I know this applies to all Mitsubishi rear projection series WS, VS, and WT Tvs from 1999 to 2002 and probably newer as well.
