These sets use what is called a "switch mode" power supply. In order for them to work there is a capacitor that "kick" starts the process. If that cap goes bad, the power supply will not start up. Also, there are other caps inside that maintain the oscillation required for the power supply to work. There are 2 options for you here.

1) Replace the entire power supply module.
2) Repair the existing one.

Sicne these types of power supplies are not the easies to diagnose or repair, I would suggest that you replace the power supply module. That should resolve the problem.

Please note that there are other causes of the reported problem, but hte power module becoming defective is the most common.

What is the solution to the blinking green light and welcome screen then tv shuts itself off


I recently had this problem on my model as well, though it was lessthan a year old. The method that worked for me is to update thefirmware of the TV itself; you can download the new software, with complete instructions on how to update your TV at http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/documents/WD-60C9
After doing this, my set started working again.
Do not replace your lamp. the light will blink red for a bad lamp, not green.

REAR PROJECTION HDTV ISSUE


Decoding the number of beeps may be possible with the owner's guide but this type of problem is normally due to a failed power supply.
These are often mounted on separate boards located in the bottom of your set and can be identified by the much larger parts you see on the board and possibly its relationship to the AC cord coming in. While these can be repaired, the cost of that will approach the cost of a new assembly.
Unfortunately, modern, more energy-efficient power supplies have some critical components that if bought cheap, don't last very long and frankly, 5 years isn't bad, I read of many dead within the first year.

Fan/Engine noise.


Dig down inside and find where the noise is coming from. Just don't stick you hands inside while the TV is on.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
