This is most likely caused by leaky capacitors in the television. The power supply that feeds the startup voltage to the CCFL tubes usually contain shoddy caps, which in a few years usually bulge and leak. 8 times out of 10 this is the case, look for any bulging caps, and replace them with the same or a higher voltage rating.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?


I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

I have a HDTV 1080 and the power to our neighborhood went out over the night and now the green light on the TV just blinks. I can't get the TV to turn on. I have reset the system reset button on the from...


try this ... if there is a reset button on your 'front' control panel..maybe 2 - 3 positions to the left of your blinking timer light..
try inserting the tip of a mechanical pencil or tip of a straighten paperclip into the 'tiny hole' of th ereset button ...hold pressure on that button until yout blinking light starts blinking RAPIDLY .. this
rapid blinking should continue for several seconds or a minute.
then it should stop .. may even go off ... now ..hopefully.. you will be able to turn your set on

Blinking Green Timer Light


I suspect the lamp area is VERY dirty as is the cabinet's filters and fans. This causes great stress on your tv and lamp. Take the time to clean all of them fully. Is the unit in a dirty area? or in a high temp area? DLP's dont like high temp or contaminated areas as they are NOT air sealed units.

It's in standby mode.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.


Please rate this a fixya

Blinking green light will not power up


My WS-55859, Did the same thing. Power went out, when it came back on the green light in front of TV would blink, but TV would not power on. Did some googling and saw multiple posts for "blinking Green light" or "Blinking Green light of death". Most of the posts pointed to replacing capacitors on DM Power board. I followed the direction and it worked great. Note the TV shop guy who did the soldering for me said the capacitors "looked fine" and they were not the problem. I couldn't tell the difference between a good or bad capacitor, so I asked him to swap them anyway. He did, I plugged the board back in, buttoned up the back of the TV. After 60 seconds Green light stopped and I started watching TV again... Here is the link to the best instructions I found (http://hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=32186).

Panasonic pt-52lxc66 power light blinks


There are actually two red leds present on your tv and depending on which one is flashing is going to tell you what to replace. 3X on the Temp led will point to a faulty thermistor and you would want to replace this part. If the 3 red blinks are the lamp light than this is a error on the iris position and you would need to have the optical block replaced.

No picture, but power is on...


How many times does the POWER led blink per sec? (dont worry about the OPC)

2x = power supply (not as expensive to fix)
3x = Main board (expensive to fix)
