Blinking Green Light on Mitsubishi Projection TV

Continuous blinking green LED on Mitsubishi's Projection which normally blinks after a power surge means that the microprocessors inside the unit are unable to communicate with each other. Usually Mitsubishi's Projection TV use 1000uF/16 in the DM MODULE (which is one of the two microprocessors), as these capacitors are too small for the load they get they usually fail usually after about 3-5 years.


They might also fail due to voltage fluctuations. To resolve this issue these capacitors should be replaced with 1000uF/25 volt or 1000uF/35 volt capacitors, so that they can handle any voltage spikes that will occur. To do the repair you’ll need to take the back off the TV apart in order to remove the faulty DM module and need to desolder the old capacitors on DM board and install new ones. All this is only recommended to be done by someone who has electrical expertise.

After researching online, my TV problem seems pretty common. TV - Mitsubishi 1080 series WS 55511. Green blinking light blinks for 3 seconds, then goes out and TV never turns on, but I hear a slight click noise that I use to hear -- as the picture appears when the TV was good. Resetting did not help.Plugging into wall outlets did not work. Pressing menu and device button -- double blink ten times.


The green light is known as "The blinking green light of death". This refers to the green LED on the front panel of the TV that normally blinks when turned on after a power failure or when unplugged: the green light is supposed to flash for about 1 minute while both microprocessors boot up: If it won't stop blinking it means that they aren't communicating w/each other. Unfortunately, it's common in Mitsubishi & other RP TV's. Getting this fixed by a professional is around $6-700 with labor, parts, etc. It's really not worth it in my opinion. I would go out and buy an LCD or an LED TV.

65 in Mitsubishi rear projection tv won't power on.


Go to the set and when turning it on doesn't work push and hold down the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time until the LED starts blinking. It should be a two blink sequence like 1 blink pause 2 blinks long pause and then repeats. Repost the blink sequence and that will narrow down what the microprocessor thinks is the problem area.
