Blinking "Timer" light for WD-62725

I recently had a power outage and when power was restored, I had a fast blinking "Timer" light. The tv will not turn on. The tv is plugged into a surge protector. I tried the "System Reset" button, but it didn't work. I also unplugged it for 24 hours, but when I plugged the tv back in, the fast blinking light returned. Again, I tried the "System Reset" button, but it didn't work.

If this is a DLP, you may have problems on the FMT/DM boards in the sealed electrical chassis.

That's a big problem, because Mits doesn't make the DM/FMT boards available anymore. They are only available for rebuild from Mitsubishi and other qualified places.

There is a chance that there are some vented capacitors on the DM and FMT boards you might be able to replace, but it's for someone really comfortable with completely disassembling a set, soldering in 8 new caps and rebuilding the chassis.

Rebuilds will run you $400-$500 in rebuild costs and an additional $200-$400 in labor, depending on the joint.

How do I reset the control panel? Other ideas?


Hello. If your unit is running continuously, the timer/control board is defective and needs to be replaced. I need the make/model number to help you accurately. If you have the mechanical timer(round knob that turns), it's not advancing(no repair possible). If the unit has an electronic control, the program quite possibly is corrupted--or a relay is stuck causing the problem. Have you had a power outage recently--3-4 weeks ago? These are notorious for damaging the control boards from the current surge when power is restored. I hope I helped you--definitely give me the model number, thanks!

There was a power outage in my zipcode; and when the power came back on, the timer light on my tv was blinking and will not stop. This is not allowing me to turn on my tv.


Thats a very common problem caused by bad DM capacitors. The caps discharge during the power loss and then cannot recharge when the power is restored whcih causes the steady blinking green led. You can get the DM repair kit for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com which does include the upgraded caps and the CD with instructions.

Replaced the bulb and tried to turn tv on and a have a green blinking light that came on nothing else. Please help


Thas a very common problem for that model which happens when the power cord is unplugged. Failed caps on the DM and the Power boards wont re-charge when power is restored and the timer light blinks non stop. The V26 Chassis DLP DM / Power repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually repair that issue. The kit contains the capacitors and the CD with repair instructions.

Flashing green light


Did you try this yet

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
POWER/TIMER Indicator
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,
