WELL, YOU WOULD OF GOT A REBUILT BOARD TO START WITH AND IT PROBABLY WOULD OF COST BETWEEN $450 AND 500 PLUS THE LABOR FOR PUTTING IT IN DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY CHARGE FOR THAT WHERE YOU LIVE BUT IT WOULD OF COST AT LEAST $200 WHERE I'M FROM. SO YOU PROBABLY GOT A DEAL

I don't think that the DM module is available new, so you would have purchased a repaired one any way you look at it. If you had a service center repair your set, then you will have a warranty for at least 90 days and that in itself is a good deal. You may want to contact them and find out how long they warranty their work.

Hope this help you out.

We lost power the other night. Now I have a continuous green blinking light and it won't turn on. I have tried everything the manual says.


Try Going To The Mitsubishi Web Site. Downloading The Mitsubishi Service Manuals If You Don't Already Have It. It Will recommend The parts You Need To ordering. Circuit board photos are also shown which provide a visual reference during the repair process.

If you decide to have a service technician do the repair, insist that the "DM" module is removed from the TV and ONLY the four 1000uF, 16V Capacitors (Caps) located on the DM Module are replaced. MOST techincians will INSIST on replacing the entire DM Module and not simply the capacitors. The cost is about $200 for a technician to replace the capacitors and $1000 for replacement of the DM Module. As you will read below, doing the repair yourself will cost less than $4.00 for the 4 Caps.

Tip

Blinking Green Light on Mitsubishi Projection TV


Continuous blinking green LED on Mitsubishi's Projection which normally blinks after a power surge means that the microprocessors inside the unit are unable to communicate with each other. Usually Mitsubishi's Projection TV use 1000uF/16 in the DM MODULE (which is one of the two microprocessors), as these capacitors are too small for the load they get they usually fail usually after about 3-5 years.

They might also fail due to voltage fluctuations. To resolve this issue these capacitors should be replaced with 1000uF/25 volt or 1000uF/35 volt capacitors, so that they can handle any voltage spikes that will occur. To do the repair you’ll need to take the back off the TV apart in order to remove the faulty DM module and need to desolder the old capacitors on DM board and install new ones. All this is only recommended to be done by someone who has electrical expertise.

Timer light will not go off. Blinking fast. Pushed reset button, didn't help. Unplugged and plugged back in, didn't help


This model and others made the same year all develop this problem.

The blinking is the DM (digital module) trying to boot up and it if the set was working correctly stop after about 70 seconds.

This set is a nightmare to work on. The most common problem is filter caps (4) on the main power supply board that puff up and cause this.

The real problem here is there are 2 other boards sandwiched together under the metal shield---so many of these sets would have the power board fail in this way----fix it and a few months later one of the other two would fail.

Under threat of a class action lawsuit Mitsubishi about 8 months ago came up with a new solution----the entire signal chassis which contains all three boards and more is sold on a exchange basis---wholesales for about 200 dollars and sold exchange----more than 70% of what makes the set work is in this chassis and replacement takes less than a hour.

Most shops seem to be getting 400-600 for this repair and only "authorized Mitsubishi service centers" have access to this deal.

Shop around and let them know you know about the "chassis replacement".

I would not just have someone repair the power supply as the other two have over 40 tiny surface mounted caps and most shops will not attempt in house or shop repair of these. The problem is some shops if the problem is on the power board will fix it and not care if the other two boards fail in a short time.

I have seen people who paid 300 for the power board, a few months later the same for the FMT board, and the same again a few months later for the DM board.

If what I am telling you is not good news, let the set go, but do not buy another one from Mitsubishi-----they have had a 20 year history of caps failing in all their sets.

Also, whatever you buy if you replace it get an extended 5 year warranty----if they decide it is too much to fix you get a new set and you can shop the extended warranty and read it carefully----some of them do NOT INCLUDE THE LAMP and others do.

Please let me know if you have questions or need advice, I am here to help.

Regards, SD TECH

Ws55511 power outage. now fast green timer blink. reset had no effect. Was connected to 110v with a surge protector, so not sure why she is unhappy.


the capacitors in the DM module have gone bad. these are solder in parts. if you know how to solder, it could be an easy fix, if not, contact your local repair center for a 150-300 $ repair. if you can solder, replace all the bulged 1000uf 16v caps with 680uf 16v caps and your problem will be solved.

I've been told I need a DM module by a tv repair service who checked continuity in many of the components. What do I really need to fix it/ Can I order the parts myself? From whom? Can I install them?


The service manual is available from www.partstore.com
It is part number Part# 3828VD0222B for $2.95
Hopefully the entire DM Module would not need replacing. Hopefully just capacitors in the DM module need replacing and if that is the case part store has these in stock. Their phone number is 866-925-7278

Mitsubishi dlp projection tv timer flashing green unable to reset TV


call Mitsubishi, 18003322119. They seem to know this is a ubiquitous problem with these sets, and seem willing to cover parts (all new electrical chasis), but not labor. Have to have an authorized repair tech look, verify problem, fax info to Mitsubishi, then will send in chassis for rebuilt one. Cost from what I've seen runs $300-400 in labor. Stinks you have to pay any, since Mitsubishi used bad capacitors in making the T.V. in the first place.
