SOURCE: green timer light blinking tv won't turn on

My thanks to your husband (and all who are involved in this stupid conflict) for his service.
You didn't mention whether there was a pattern to the blinking which in some sets can be decoded  into a specific problem. I'll assume it is a regular blink rate you have.
All modern sets have a standby state that allows them to respond to the remote when they are 'off.'  The power for the LED that's blinking comes from this 'always on' power supply and the fact that it is blinking probably (and unfortunately) means that either the main power supply has failed or possibly the lamp in some brands.
Because this can come from more than one place, it's not possible to determine which source it might be.  The owner's manual might give info under 'Troubleshooting' as to the source.
If you don't have the manual available, you can download one here:
Mitsubishi Manual 
If you find that it is the main power supply, this is likely on a separate board and may be user replaceable.
Pull the AC plug from the wall and let it sit for at least a couple of hours to allow certain components to loose any dangerous charge. Remove the lower panel from the set and look for a board with larger than average parts on it, particularly cylindrical objects (capacitors) and larger dark blocks (transformers). Look on that board for a part number for the board (not the components).
Locate the nearest Mitsubishi repair company and call to see if they repair failed boards or only sell new. Once you have the price for it (could be $90-$200 US), you can decide if you want to replace or repair it.
Replacing the board is probably not rocket science and have had several ladies do this on their own.       
If you find it is the lamp that has failed, this is also something you can do without great technical skills and the prices for these ranges from ~$125 - $200.

Which circuit board on my Smart TV might be broken after a possible lightning strike. There are two main ones. The power is getting to the unit, but I can't get the menus, connections etc to work.


Nobody can predict, what might have been happened to your TV after a lightning strike. Do you thing anybody can? Is any technician have a super-natural power to predict the faults that might have been happened due to lightning (More than 10 Million volts to start on stroke) ? Can you?
Sorry.
Contact the authorized service center. OK?

Will a nearby lightning strike cause a power board failure?


It could happen yes it would depend where the strike entered the TV. Not all lighting strikes hit on the electrical lines, on a TV they can come through the cable, as well as a antenna if you have one hooked up.

The lightning stroke has been effected to the main digital board to your TV. It will be best to replace the main digital board as card basis, rather than trying to repair it. Before replacing the board, a through checkup should be done. Contact any expereienced service technician for help, as this work is a very skilled one. No body can predict about the damages to a lightning stroke, as there will be trillions of voltage present for every stroke, and even a slightest voltage can damage so many components in a TV like equipment, as it is designed to work for 110 or 220VAC.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Lightning strike


This model is famous for capacitors being bad in the low voltage regulators on the signal board. Also has been known for cold solder connections in the power supply to the convergence IC. I don't have my notes at home but I belive that model only uses one IC for convergence, STK393-570. You cant see it from the back because of it being hidden by its heat sink.

Does not power on. Q951 charred


you can look for the model and brand, look for it on the internet and see if you can have the schematic diagram, you're lucky if u can. Lightning will strike first the tuner side, if there is a red blink, the primary side may be okay in switching type regulator, just replacing the charred part may not solve the problem. look for shorted components on the secondary of the power section.
