I've run into this before and in fact is a problem with Mitsubishi TVs going back a few years. When the green LED blinks, its indicating that the TV is reading its software. It must complete this function before the TV can be turned on. I've had many of these sets do this. Its likely a problem with the "DM" board or possibly the power supply board. In either case, it can be quite expensive to service. You should contact Mits even if your TV is out of warranty. Sometimes manufacturers will do the right thing and help when a customer is facing a serious repair cost.

The tv will flash a green light and will turn off, it doesnt turn on either when you power it on


if the green light is a flash on screen with retrace lines most likely the video driver ic on the green crt board , just take the speaker grill .
theair should be a way to get to crts. the one in the center is the green crt. the green video driver ic is an inline 24 pin ic.
to test unplug the video drive plug leading to green crt board turn tv on .if it comes up its a bad ic.
if not unplug the crt socket ,and try to turn it on if it comes up
bad crt internal short hope this helps, butler

Just replaced lamp/housing and now tv turns off after 2 minutes of being on. Green light flashes continually(about 30 sec.) then tv turns back on and the cycle continues. The tv is a sony bravia...


Strange situation, have you tried unplugging it for a few minutes and letting the TV cool. I have a older 2006 Sony SXRD rear projection and it takes forever to turn back on if you shut it off then turn it back on. Check this link and maybe its giving you a blinking code. Try counting the number of blinks. Hope this helps.

Some of these sets if you unplug them---The green power light will blink for about 70 seconds before it stops--this is normal as the receiver unit in this set is booting up. Wait for the light to stop blinking and then the set should turn on. Some of these sets develop a problem where the light never stops blinking--usually the receiver is now bad--very expensive to get fixed.

I turned on the TV but just got a black screen but could hear audio just fine. Turned the set off and unplugged it. When I plugged it back in the green timer light started flashing and would not stop...


Nonstop blinking is likely a DM or format board - format board most likely. I have rebuilt several of these by simply replacing all the caps, about 70 of them, and takes about two hours start to finish... But this set does need to boot. It takes about 70 seconds of flashing green light before you're able to press the power button - even when everthing is working as it should..
Hope this helps!

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
