Mit WD-52527 Flashing Green Timer Light

I too am having the dreaded flashing green led problem. A service technician stated that I needed to replace the DM assembly, but i would first like to try replacing the capacitors myself. Can you assist me as to which caps need replacing and if there is any recommeded changes to the values of these caps.

    WD-52527 Prjection set with flashing LED. Removed the DM board and noticed that there was 12 capacitors replaced beforeon this board. Very upsetting since I bought the set new and it has never been serviced before. All of the caps appear to look normal. I went ahead and replaced all 12 again but still have the same problem. Any thoughts???

If you have changed all 12 caps and you still encounter the same problem then it has to be the DM assembly amongst other problems which i doubt you are aware of, unless the circuit board itself has burnt that the capacitors were replaced on, have you had a good look at this circuit board?
If all seems fine then i recommend you call a service engineer to look for other possible problems

hope this helps

It sounds to me like your local electronics store got one over on you. I would consider bringing this issue to management's attention and if you get nowhere with them, I'd report them to the manufacturer. Given the fact that it looks like you have a 52", I'd even consider filing suit against them. After all, I'm sure that your TV wasn't cheap. If you can prove that they wronged you, you could be entitled to up to 3 times what the TV is worth. Just when I think that I've heard it all... Really sorry to hear about your misfortune. Hopefully this info proves to be useful.Try to have yourself a nice evening!

I think going with the technicians advise is much advisable.as he is right .the unit may by chance work if u change the capacitor or any other electrical component but will not work for long period as the assembly needs replacement. the engineer is right.carry forward.

    Re: Mitsubishi WD-52525 Blinking Status Light: 

    Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
    The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

    For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

    Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

    12 = No error detected, check power supply.
    32 = Lamp Cover is open.
    33 = Air filter cover is open.
    34 = Lamp abnormality
    36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
    37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
    38 = Lamp Temperature High
    39 = DMD Temperature High
    41 = Short is detected
    44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Can you see if the capacitor have blown?

If the TV had not been tested personally are not necessarily the caps, what is the problem in detail?

    No answer, there are 7 C9 capacitors that must be tested.

    They are all 680uf 25V, you can replace them with 50V, but this can endanger more parts in case there is the same problem again. Better to stick with factory specs.

    If you give me more details I can tell you with more precision what to do.

I hav a mit 65 in tv model number wd 60737 it comes on with the words welcome mit and green light blinks and then shuts off.


Does the led light flashes green continually?

Check if you can access the operational error code. The TV must be in shutdown and then press the front panel "activity" and "channel down" at the same time and hold them for 5 secs.

Led light will flash 2 digit code separated by a pause.

23 - 2 blinks pause 3 blinks

Let me know the result...

My Mitsubishi WD-52527 has a constant blinking green light. There is no video and no audio just a blinking green light when it is pluged in


I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV. Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired ofcourse) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 yearsinstead of 10-20. The capacitors failprematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in allsorts of devices. Here are some options for you.
1. Have it fixed by a professional 2. Open your TV and find PSB. Checkfor faulty caps. If you find some (bulgedor leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. 3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill. Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourselfit will save you hundreds. I have a tip/tutorialon this site that may also help. Itgives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It'scalled: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. Hope this helps and Good luck.Kaufman605

MIT WD-62525 DLP TV blinking green light on front won't stop


Hi!

It means your TV needs to reset. Although you have reset it previously, now again reset the TV as per procedure given below:

Please press the SYSTEM RESET button on the front panel with a pointed item such as the point of a ball point pen or end tip of a paperclip.

The TV will turn off and the green LED will flash quickly for about one minute. After the green LED stops flashing, turn on the TV again. The changes you made while the TV was most recently on, before you used the SYSTEM RESET button, may be lost; the changes you made previously, however, are not lost. Only those changes since the last power on may be lost when the system reset button is pressed. All other settings are retained.

TV Reset Menu

Read on-screen warnings before proceeding, as some user data or settings may be erased.

1. Press TV MENU and then 1, 2, 3 to see the RESET SERVICE MENU to reset the TV.

2. Select Reset System Defaults (CAUTION: All settings, except V-Chip, will be reset to the original factory defaults.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Mitsubishi wd-52628 flashing green timer light


If the power/timer led is the one blinking constantly
the most likely problem is two 3300 mfd caps and 1 to 8 1000mfd caps on the power board.
could be the DM board or caps on it as well.
