Power Failure, now the power/timer blinking light won't stop blinking

We have the Mitsu HDTV 55 inch model #WS55613 and we had a power failure and now the blinking light by the power switch won't stop and the unit doesn't turn on at all.

I unplugged the unit, then waited a few minutes and the blinking light still didn't stop. I then got a sharp object to do a system restart and the blinking light came back on but didn't stop after a 1 minute. It's blinking continuously. The TV won't turn on at all.

Can you help?

Thank you Frank Minutello

    My WS-55513 is having the same problem... Please advise...

  • Anonymous Mar 10, 2008

    I have the Mitsubishi WS-55613 and i have the same blinking light in the front this is very disturbing when i have only had the tv for 3 years. I have tried doing everything everyone else has; used a sharp object to reset, unpluged, changed from power surge, you name it, bad thing is my husband has a GE floor model he has had for 25 years and it still works. Looks pretty bad for Mitsubishi. It appears this is a problem for alot of people. What can i do to fix it? IS THERE A RECALL ON THIS TV? DOES ANYONE KNOW? Unfortunatley i have a tech calling me tomorrow and it will probably cost me as much as the tv did when i bought it. HELP!!!

    I have the same problem but on a Mitsubishi WD 52525. The green blinking light won't ever turn off. Never. I have unplugged, reset, and waited. Nothing happens. The green light just blinks. The t.v. won't turn on.

    I have reported this to Mitsubishi several times. They pass me from person to person. No one can fix it. It is obviously a flaw of Mitsubishi t.v.s from all of the other research I have done.

    DO NOT buy a Mitsubishi t.v. They are not reliable AND the customer service STINKS.

Blinking green light (timer light). No video, no sound. Error code 12. This model has no DM board so it's not the better known "capacitor" problem.

Error code 12 signals that no failures were detected , which means that it's a power source failure. You will need to check it - the board sits on top of the main board.

The Capacitors on the DM board need replaceing. The V26 DM repair kit from will usually repair that issue. The kit contains the capacitors and the CD with instructions.

The colorwheel is your problem. To confirm this, unplug the tv, then listen thru the air vents in the back as you plug the tv in. You will probably hear a ticking sound. If you do, that is the colrwheel. If the colrwheel is working, youwill be able to hear it "spin up". It will be a sudden high pitch whine. Let me know if I can be of further assistance
