42" Mitsubishi 52525

Green "timer" light blinking. Sound - - but no picture. Tried unplugging set for 1 minute, plugging back in, press reset button, tv plays for a while and then picture freezes and goes black. Have reviewed troubleshooting, but can't seem to come across what the problem might be.

You may have bad capacitors in the DM board.

Hi Jdvillanueva, I have a Mitsubishi 52525.

Hi Mark,

First of all I would like to thank you for consulting regarding on your problem.

Your model no. Mitsubishi WD-52525 (Chassis No. V26) is known for steady blinking Timer LED fault after pressing the power button key. Once this kind of symptoms is encountered and the unit didn't come on and stuck to this blinking death of life, it means that the DM board failed to boot up. In normal operation, timer will blink after AC is applied for 80 secs (DM board booting process) maximum before the picture and sound to come on.

You've mentioned that you had already reset the unit, unplug and plug back in to the outlet but still the symptoms persist, then this is a clear indication of DM board malfunction. It will not stop from blinking if the faulty parts didn't isoltated.

Good news! because I have a link where you can buy a repair kit for this kind of fault. Kit includes the parts that are known to be faulty, instructions that will guide you in the whole process of repair. Click it HERE. It is a V26 chassis (your chassis) DLP / DM Power repair kit.

For additional info watch some tutorial video below.

Electrolytic capacitor info. (Known to be faulty on the symptoms you've encountered)

Soldering TutorialHow to desolder parts on the board.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Rating and feedback are highly appreciated.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

I have one of thos green blinking light and NO

The lamp light would be solid red if the lamp were out. The steady blinking green led is usually caused by failed capacitors on the DM board. You can get the V26 dm repair kit from which should repair that issue. The kit contains the capacitors and the CD with detailed instructions.

The timer light green blinking all the time

You most likely have some bad capacitors on the dm board, unfortunately the board is not available for this set, the complete chassis has to be sent in to Mitsubishi to be rebuilt.
