DM Power on problem - Can I use 35V Caps instead/ (Techman??)

I am following Techman's solution for the power light flash. I really don't want to wait for shipping on the caps. Can I use the 1000uf 35V caps that are available at Radio Shack? (Instead of the 1000uf 16V) Thanks Techman for your solution and instructions. My TV failed today after a few days of flakey on/off issues.

    Thanks for the RAPID reply!!

    The family wants TV back soon. I will try the Raggedy Shack caps and order the others. Maybe it will get me through for a few days and I can swap them out again later.

    I just ordered a 58" Plasma to replace this TV but it won't be here for a week or so. My 10yr old was really looking forward to getting the Mitsubishi in the basement for his games. (I know he will probably ruin it, but at this point it does not work anyway!!!)

If they fit, sure but If I'm not mistaking, they are too tall. And they really should be the high temp caps, as if you do not use hi temp caps you will be in the same boat down the road. Good Luck

    Fix it right the first time and you should have many years of a good TV set. too bad the TV set will be used as a game monitor :>(. Lucky kid to have such a good projection TV to ruin with image burn in. if I were you, if you already have a good TV set to replace this one, sell or give it to charity, as as a game TV, a totally waist of a perfactly good TV set! I am sorry, i do not mean to sound harsh, but come on, you can get a 32 inch for less then 200 bucks that will not burn in the screen with the games.
    I wish I had the set. Mine just blew up, and parts are no longer available. Oh well wish the best on the repair.

Green light flashing on timer. tv wont power up..just bought this house. wtv was left behind. i was told it works but i cant turn it on


Thats a common problem if the sets left unplugged or without power the DM caps drain and then wont charge when the power is restored. Its a easy fix usually just replace the DM caps. You can get the Mitsunbishi repair kit called the WS55859 DM repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the upgraded replacement caps and the CD with repair instructions.

Mitsubishi WS-65511 has flashing timer light but will not turn on.


I used to have a WS55909 and had this problem. The light is supposed to blink for one minute while the DM (digital module) boots up after a power loss. If the light continues to blink indefinitely, there is a problem with that board. The DM power supplies are known to have faulty capacitors on these models and will need to be replaced. If I remember correctly, there are (7) 1000uf 25v capacitors and they should be desoldered from the board and replaced with 35v ones. Note that my TV model already had 35v caps but changing them solved the problem: electrolytic capacitors have a much shorter life than other components.
The DM is on the left side and is where ANT-DTV and the IR repeaters plug in. The power supply is the board above the main DM board inside the DM case.
If this sounds too technical for you, get a new TV because a repair guy will charge you more than the TV is worth. In other words you could get a (30-46") LCD TV for the same price.

Want to replace caps which board is the DM board?


Once you take the shield assembly off, you will see a board, I believe it is the DM Board board. There are four Capacitors grouped together probably rated at 35v 1000 mfd, 105 degree. They should be replaced with 35v 680mfd,105 degree Capacitors. Now once that is done, there is another board under that one. This is the Format Board. It also has 4 Capacitors that should also be replaced. They are the same value as the first Board and should be replaced with the same 35v 680mfd, 105 degree Capacitors.
Please note the Flex connectors at the bottom of the DM and Format Boards. They may not be available from Mitsubishi any more so be gentle with them and make sure the are installed properly when reinstalling the Boards back into the chassis. There is one other Board you should look at. The Power Supply Board is the board on the back of the chassis and also has a number of Capacitors that fail. Most all of the Capacitors that fail through out this chassis will have bulging tops. So any you see bulging, you should replace whether they are on the DM, Format , or Power Supply.
I hope this helps,

Mitsubishi WS-65513 light blinking


If the light continuously blinks, there are four(4) caps, 10000upf @ 35v that are bad on the DM board. The board is on the right side of the chassis, looking from back, the caps will be swollen on the top. The repair is more cost effective then replacing the board.

The DM board is the one with the digital connectors on the back panel. If you already have it appart, you may as well check the caps on all of the boards. The caps that go bad are typically Jamicon brand caps in 1000 uF and 330 uF values. There are also a couple of 3300 uF caps in the PS that cause problems.
