Question about Mitsubishi WS-55511 55" Rear Projection Television
Hello Slinteriors. I have the same issue as the one posted by bcarlisle266 on Sep 16, 2008. It looks as though you emailed a solution but didn't say what it was. From your other posts I'm going to assume you recommend the repair of the capacitors on the DM board?
I pulled the board out last night but was surprised to see no bulges at all in the 7 capacitors on the board. I realize they could still be bad but had hoped for some sort of a visual confirmation.
Do you still think this is the best try for the same conditions bcarlisle266 stated of the continual blinking light? I am also unable to get any sort of an error code using the panel buttons. Please let me know what you think. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the help
I had similar issue, but it was the front control panel, not the Caps. I had to just unplug the key panel and it works fine now. There are 2 connectors, a smaller white one and a larger black on. Disconnect the smaller white. You will have to use the remote, but it should fix.

I changed the 7 capacitors on the board and my tv works again
I used http://www.chrisandnat.com/temp/BlinkingTV.pdf as a reference because it has pictures and it gave me something to reference. This one has only 4 capacitors and WS55511 has 7. make sure to get the same capacitors specs as the ones it has installed.
Good luck and thank you all for the info.

I had the same problem with the blinking lights as you have said I tried your method first without looking at the DM board and my problem has been solved

Yes often the caps will show no outward appearance of bulging. I would replace them and also check the two fuses on the board as well
