Question about Mitsubishi WS-55513 55" Rear Projection HDTV
We have turn off the power, and hit reset button and light keeps blinking. has been blinking for over hour now
Had a certified Mitsubishi repairman out on Wednesday. It was indeed the four $1.69 capacitors that needed replacing. The bill was $376.95 which included the service call to my home.
The repairman told me that prior to January '08, this was a $700 fix. Somehow I still wasn't all that excited.
If this problem is this common, the repair should be handled completly by Mitsubishi. I'm still not convinced that just replacing the defective parts assures me of a long-term fix.
I believe I've purchased my LAST Mitsubishi product of any kind. Yes, I'm bitter.

I finally had the repairman "fix" the problem. He replaced 4 electrolytic capacitors on the DM board. Now it blinks for about 45 minutes then turns off and then a few seconds later comes back on correctly...It's still not right, but at least I can watch it. By the way, this is a design problem where the capacitors go bad from too much heat. If you write Mitsubishi Customer support and send them a copy of the repair bill they may refund all or at least some of your money....good luck.

Have you tried unplugging your set for ten minutes and plugging it back in? Sometimes this will reset it. Also try hiolding the menu and input buttons in at the same time to see if you can enter the self diagnosis function built into the set. You should notice the light blink a two digit code. If thats unsuccesful your probaly looking at some bad capacitors in the power suppies or regulators. How are your trouble shooting skills?

Hey guys/gals, I was having the exact same problem with my 55" mitsubishi...then I came across this thread..
and now I am watching my TV again!!
Just four bad capacitors were the problem. It's fairly common and the capacitors cost me about $3.

generally this means a bad digital module.. as a techinican the first thing that we would check are what is know as standby voltages. if they were there we would replace digital module.! question. Does it blink for more than 70 seconds. This unit comes with a lockout feature. to unlock press and hold menu down for 10 seconds on front panel.

could be power supply problem or high voltage problem. check caps in main power supply first.look for caps that have tops puffed up ususlly three or four.....

SOURCE: RESET BUTTON KEEPS BLINKING, I
THIS IS MY STANDARD ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION==SOMETIMES PEOPLE DO NOT
TRY THE EASY POSSIBLE REASON--IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS LET ME
KNOW---IF THE ANSWER TOLD YOU something you did not know--rate the
ONLY 1 of 2 things can cause this problem----
First thing to do is remove front speaker grill--it should pull out and is secured with plastic pegs--behind it you will find an inspection plate---
Notice the one or two pairs of wires coming from the front keyboard of the set---remove the inspection plate and follow the wires to the right--you can unplug both plugs(most have two and they are marked with letters and different sizes so you cannot get them wrong)
The idea here is to remove the front keyboard with its reset button etc from the circuit---You will still be able to try to turn the set on with the remote---
These sets have a Receiver that is called a DM board--(large metal box to the left as you look from the back) and if the power goes out the green light will blink for about 70 seconds and then go out---it is the Receiver booting up. It is called the DM board.
If disconnecting the keyboard allows the set to turn on--you have a bad reset switch and two choices---either operate the set only with the remote or to remove the front screen and get at the reset switch (it is tiny) and remove and/or replace it.
If disconnecting the keyboard does not restore the set to operation---the receiver is bad---there are 4 or more caps and some pico fuses that can fail in that unit---Mitsubishi no longer sells or repairs these--if it is bad and not the caps there is a company you can send the unit to and have it repaired--if you need to know their name let me know---
You can call them and get a quote for repairing the receiver.
Let me know what more information you need--I am here to help.
