Question about Mitsubishi WD-62528 62 in. LCD Television
I HAVE A MITSUBISHI WD-62528 52in. WAS WORKING FINE UNTILL ONE MORNING WENT TO TURN ON AND THE SCREEN JUST TURNED BLUE. THE REMOTE DID'NT WORK ON IT AND THE TV BUTTONS DID'NT WORK AS WELL. I TRIED TO RESETING IT AND IT WENT BACK TO BLUE. AT ONE TIME IT WENT TO SET UP ON THE SCREEN BUT STILL NONE OF THE BUTTONS WORKED, SO I UNPLUGED IT AND WHEN I PLUGED IT BACK IN THE SCREEN DID NOT COME ON ANY MORE. ALL YOU CAN HEAR IS THE FAN AND SEE THE TIMER LITE FLASH (There is no code). NOW WHEN I PLUG THE TV IN ALL IT DOES IS.... THE FAN COMES ON AND THE TIMER LIGHT FLASHES FAST FOR ABOUT A MINUTE OR SO AND THEN TURNS OFF. THIS HAPPENS OVER AND OVER. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME.
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.

There are a whole series of capacitors located on the DM module and on the power supply board that fail and cause this type of problem, Sometimes, after replacing the capacitors, a tech will find that the DM module must be replaced, or reflashed, which requires that the module be removed from the set and sent back to Mitsubishi. The problems are well known on these sets, so much so that there is a class action lawsuit about the failures.You can read about the lawsuit by clicking here
If the capaciitors are all that is bad, the repair will be around $400 - $500, with most of that cost being labor. If the DM module is bad or requires reflashing it could easily double the cost of your repairs.
