Did the set work after the tech replaced the caps?
Is the work under warranty?
Bad convergence amps would be the first suspect.
Press and hold the menu and device buttons at the same time on the set (not the remote). The led should blink an error code. If it blinks 2 times then 3 times, it is probably the convergence amps.

The green timer light is blinking with no interruption on my WS-55859. TV will not power on after the reset button is reset or is disconnected from power.


Thats almost always caused by failed DM capacitors on the DM power board. There are 7 that will need replacement. There is a repair kit called the WS55859 DM repair kit which has the caps and the CD with repair instructions available from www.tvrepairworld.com

We recently experienced a power outage, but once the power came back on, my TV would not turn back on other then a the timer green light was blinking. I pushed the reset button and also unplugged the power...


The blinking green light is the DM unit in the set booting up like a computer.

Several things can happen here--Research by model number with GOOGLE, model number and problems.

It is often called the blinking green light of death.

The most common problem is 4 filter caps in power supply (they run 7/24 and supply voltage to DM unit fail--also some fuses there.

If you look on the net you will find places that sell kit for this repair.

This is also one of a group of several Mitsubishi sets with this kind of problem--It is not the Lamp!

Some of these models develop so many problems Mitsubishi now sells a chassis replacement--includes power and several boards that develop bad caps.

Understand: Mitsubishi has a long history of caps failing in their sets, it goes back almost 30 years. I have seen older ones where over 20 filter caps were bad.

You can talk to Mitsubishi to see if chassis replacement is available for your set--this came about as a result of the threat of hundreds of people entering a class action lawsuit (several).

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

If you have questions make a "comment" here and I will assist you.

Green light flashing in the front ?


SLinteriors posted this on another page and saved me big bucks.

Here's a bit more detail:

The flashing green timer light after a lightning storm seems to be a very common problem with old Mistubishi rear projection TV's. A friend and I had the exact same problem.

Using this and other sites, I spent $36 bucks and a little time with a soldering iron to replace the capacitors on the DM board and got mine up and running (WS55859). I've never really worked on electronic circuit boards before, but the helpful advice at these sites got me up and running. Definitely check it out before you hire someone or replace your TV:

Repair Kit with instructional CD available at:
http://www.tvrepairworld.com/mitsubishi_repair_kits
for under $40 plus shipping.

Discussion of process in detail at:
http://www.hometheaterspot.com/showtopic.php?tid/137881/
for the WS55859 model, which may be a little different.

I have a WS 55859 and after power outage i got the green POWER light blinking. I replaced all seven capacitors 1000uf but i still can't switch it in? Any other advice? Rgds FM


If replacing the 7 caps doesn't work I then try to re-solder the small 8 pin ICs. Be very careful and try to avoid cooking it or leaving a solder bridge. If that doesn't work either you'll have to replace the DM-POWER board. You'll beed a Mits authorized service center to order the part. Goodluck.

Green blinking light following a power outage


I rebuild the DM power supply in these sets with about a 50% success rate. Sometimes changing the 7 1000uf caps on the small power supply in the DM will fix it, you'll also have to solder the small 8 pin ICs as well. Do this carefully as you do not want an accidental bridge. If this does not fix your problem, replace the DM-POWER board not the DM Assembly. It's about a 300 dollar difference. You'll need a mitsubishi authorized service center to order the part for you. Goodluck.

GREEN BLINKING LIGHT OF DEATH..........


You cannot tell what capacitors are bad just by looking at them. Some can fail without any outward signs. You need a special meter to test them.

Is the light blinking 7 times on front of TV ? If u take the back cover of the TV off you should see two leds on the bottom right of power supply turn on when u push the power button. When the TV go into error protection on the upper left of power supply you should see. A blinking green light. Please inform me of the error it flashes and ill will be able to help further. ( Serveral possiblilties it could be from audio, bad power,and faulty Y-main.)
