Mitsubishi WS55909 blinking green light

I purchased this TV and saw it working perfect. When I gently moved it home and tried to watch it all I got was a blinking green light. I have some background in electronics but now with TV's. I would like to try to do the repair myself if possible. It may need capacitors like many other posts and I would like to try it.
I need to know where the bad capacitors are and where to get new ones.

How long was it blinking. after a complete loss of power the green light will blink on power up as it is resetting itself. It says in the manual that it should take about a minute. Over the last two days I've have to reset it several time both by unplugging it and using the manual reset button and it has taken about five minutes for the blinking green light to clear.

Blinking green light will not power up


My WS-55859, Did the same thing. Power went out, when it came back on the green light in front of TV would blink, but TV would not power on. Did some googling and saw multiple posts for "blinking Green light" or "Blinking Green light of death". Most of the posts pointed to replacing capacitors on DM Power board. I followed the direction and it worked great. Note the TV shop guy who did the soldering for me said the capacitors "looked fine" and they were not the problem. I couldn't tell the difference between a good or bad capacitor, so I asked him to swap them anyway. He did, I plugged the board back in, buttoned up the back of the TV. After 60 seconds Green light stopped and I started watching TV again... Here is the link to the best instructions I found (http://hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=32186).

Mitsubishi 55" big screen TV powers down after 70 secs We had a power outage in the neighborhood, after which our Mitsubishi 1080 HDTV WS-55909 only had a blinking green light on the front (no variation or pattern), even after the set was powered down. Upon reading online, it appeared the DM module capacitors were the likely culprit, so I sourced (7)1000 microfarad capacitors and replaced them, then reassembled the TV. This was the first time I'd soldered on a circuit board, so of course a lot of things might have gone wrong. However, after that the TV now powers up, but I only have a blue screen and cannot get the remote to work except to power the TV on and off (tried changing batteries in remote, reprogramming remote per setup manual, etc). Further, the TV powers off after 1 min and 15-20 seconds. I then tried to see if I could get any of the attached devices to work on their own with no other devices on except the TV. Each of them yielded a blue screen (X-Box, VCR/DVD recorder, Wii, cable) except the DVD player -- which displayed a great picture! The problem is the DVD will play 1 min 15 seconds then the TV will shut down and the green light will blink steadily (no pattern) for 60 seconds, then power down. And this only works if the DVD is on before the TV is turned on, and since the remote doesn't work I have to press "play" on the DVD player. The DVD is hooked to Component Input 2 so that input appears to be working fine. The VCR/DVD recorder is attached to Component Input 1. When I had it powered up and turned on the TV, I got a blue screen. However, when I left the VCR/DVD on and then turned on the DVD, there were jagged lines on the TV for 3-5 seconds, then the TV made a popping sound and shut off. When I then turned on the TV (i.e., with both the VCR/DVD and the DVD on first), the DVD worked but could not switch to the VCR/DVD without the TV turning off. I also tried switching the cabling for the DVD to Component Input 1, but the DVD no longer worked. When I tried the VCR/DVD on Component Input 2, it still only yielded a blue screen. So is Component Input 1 bad? And why would the TV work with the DVD in Component Input 2 but not the VCR/DVD? Obviously I have multiple problems here. The first one to deal with is the TV shutting off after 1.25 minutes. I am unable to see where I can get an error code when the blinking light just blinks quickly without any pattern, and neither the front panel controls nor the remote control work. Perhaps most of my inputs on the rear of the TV don't work now except Component Input 2 but I don't know how to test this. So I made a little headway with the capacitor replacements, but not sure what I can do at this point. Any suggestions? I've seen references for other Mitsubishi big screens that shut down like this, and the fix was related to the output power module, but not sure if it applies the the WS-55909. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. estout7
