Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV
The mitsubishi WS-55513 won't turn on. Just a flashing green light .
Took it to a tech who wanted $650 for a new DM (?) board install.
From what i know thru extensive research.....and i mean alot the dm board (as in the whole thing) is not all bad its thecapacitors on the dm board that are supposably cheap O'z if you know what i mean. there should be 4 of them. you can buy the replacemnets from radio shack for about 8.50. if you know someone who is handy with a soildering iron, or a freelace electically type then ask them if they can put the new ones on for you. the correct one you need are -40 degrees to +85 degrees Celceus...tolerance +20%, now this is important 1000microfarad.... now these capacitors cant be less than 16V they can be over but not under.... typical brand to get is xicon....you have to remove the dm board which is in a metal shield once the back part of the television is removed you will see it cause it looks like it should be in a computer. but apparently this is typical and its a very simple fix but everyone that is capable to fix it want to bend you over and do you dry....mitsubishi should be ashamed of themselves for not correcting this themselve and offering help with cost.. hope this helps guys!

Two choices =
1) Replace DM MODULE. 650.00 is right.
2) Rebuild DM MODULE. Done right = a little less than Mits.
Caution: High degree of skill needed and ask about warranty
in either choice.Rebuilds usually cover only parts installed,
not complete module.If you do the research on repair,you
will find pin push reset does not work,in most cases....T.

Wait for the flashing green light to stop the use a pin to push the reset button next to the power and it should turn on fine. I've had this issue a couple of times when I get a power spike.
