  • Cajunman Feb 19, 2008

    I too have the dreaded blinking green light. It happened when the wife tried turning on the TV. I tried to reset the unit and it still blinks. I am a systems technician with a vast electronics background and am vary capable of repairing circuitry. I would very much appreciate someone emailing me the directions on what and how to fix the "DM board" or what ever else it might be. Thank you in advance for the help. I really appreciate it. My email is.

    The green light is blinking and it won't stop. We are not tech savy, what do you suggest we do? We do not want to wait four hours for some guy to come out and tell me he doesn't have the $1000 part and will be back another four hour day. I am real surprised that there are this many people having the same problem, we too bought our tv in January 2004. Is Mitsubishi doing anything?

  • jcinc
    jcinc Nov 09, 2008

    I had the blinking light, used the hair dryer for 2 weeks about 6 times. This afternoon, I finally mustered the courage (I'm a tech and know soldering pretty well) to replace the caps according to the brilliant guide from Chris & Nat (their site is here). I used 1000uf, 35v, 105C rated caps.



    Now it won't come up...just the blinking green light of death! I tried the hair dryer again, too, to no avail. I also hear a rhythmic clicking near the center of the mainboard. I re-verified all connections, solder points, polarities.



    Any suggestions? If I have to get it repaired, do I have to haul that big thing to the repair shop or do I just take the PCB in? jcinc@sc.rr.com

  • jal0724 Mar 15, 2009

    The tv worked fine last night and this morning I have the same problem like everyone else. The green light keeps blinking when the power button is pressed. It will continue to blink for an hour than stop. I tried the reset button also and nothing, no picture, and does not power up. Does anyone know what the problem is? Can you help? Thanks you for any input!

  • Milton Beck Apr 06, 2009

    I have a Mitsubishi WS65813 and it has the blinking green light again. It was fixed a year and a half ago and it is occuring again. I see that there are four capacitors that need to be replaced. I would be willing to try this as it is too expensive to replace again. If someone has the repair instructions and a place that I can order the capacitors from it would be a great start.

A quick fix for this is to use a hair dryer to heat up the capacitors and then plug the tv back in.  It should only take about 90-120 seconds to heat them up depending on how hot the dryer is.  The cap's are located on the right side.  Take the front cover off the TV, and heat up the box that is about the size of a small cable box on the right side.  Once the cap's are warm, they will stay warm as long as the TV stays plugged in.

OK. Praise be to the almighty Hair Dryer!!! It WORKED for me. We went our of town for 5 days. Set the thermostats down to 50 degrees. Guess the Mitsubishi didn't like that. When we got home I had the infamous green blinker. After reading this website and these posts, it seemed the simplest thing to try. Forget changing capaciters over here. Try it!! Finally my wifes hair dryer did something useful besides driving me crazy in the morning!!!!!! :)

I opened the face of the tv, 4 screws and bam I was in. I tried the hair dryer for the 120 sec's and nothing. So I turned the dryer on Low, let it run with the TV plugged in and just waited. The blinking green screen of death went away and BAM it turned on and worked just fine. Can't believe it really worked. All the other suggestions were out since the cost's of Flat Screens have come down so much it was going to the curb and me and a soldering iron equals nothing but a mess or a fire.

We had the same problem and thought no way about the blow dryer trick but we were willing to try on our WS-65S11 in our game room after lightening storm last night and we had to unplug. All day it wouldn't come up just the same green blinking light. We put the blow dryer on the DM capacitors for 60 seconds, turned on the power, and it reset on it's own and it immediately came up.

We just took the back off, and blew in the holes on medium heat. You are a GENIUS for this solution!

There is a fix for most of the DM boards in these sets. If you leave an e-mail address, I will send you the repair documents as well as the factory service manual so when you do repair your TV set and save about 1000 bucks, you can clean the lens and mirrors to make the set look really good like new. Good Luck.

Wow.... forget ordering some boatrd replacement. Plug up the blow dryer and walah! I thought it was a joke.... if it doesn't stop flashing after about 2 minutes, plug the tv and leave the dryer on and the tv will bring itself back to life. just have patience. But don't uplug the tv or you will be right back at square one. But at least you know how to fix it. Anthony 8/28/2010

I called Sears service. Technician was very good. I did not have any type of maintenance coverage on the TV so $$ were involved. Service call was $109 if I didn't have them fix it. They confirmed the DM board was the problem and offered me two options. Replace the board which was $435 for the part and with the service call and labor would be just about $700 total. They also offered (willingly) to order the CAPS, have them shipped to me and return and replace them on my existing board. The total estimate for that was about $250 including the service call. I took that option. The parts arrived and the return service is scheduled for Aug 5. I was impressed with them suggesting that option and their overall knowledge.

Have you guys tried this:

My unit was doing the same green blinking light deal,, I tried the suggestions on this site and no results.. (except the replacement of caps and or DM board).
I so i went a head and tried disconnecting the connection from what seems to lead to the control panel... It is the larger of the two with black and white wires (NOT the colorful one)and what do you know,, this fixed it.. I did it while the tv was on,, (still blinking) I don't know if that was the trick or what but it is working... we'll see for how long,, Good luck!

Hello all. I have fixed my green blinking light problem on my Mit. 65513 rear project. hdtv. It is on now as I'm writing. I replaced 4 capacitors on the DM board (largest vertical standing board). I used a desolder tool from RS($15).I practiced on a discarded board first. I replaced the caps with 4 radial capacitors rated 1000uf 16v. 105 degrees c and was sure to match the polarity markings on the board(+/-)with the markings on the capacitors. That's it! I also installed a small 12v PC fan(wired to a 12v wall adapter) on the DM module casing with zip ties. You may also use 1000uf 25v 105c caps. I hope this helps-good luck!

Constant green blinking light Mitsubishi tv


First wait 90 sec. after power is applied before turning on. If still blinking forever "this is a common problem with the mitsubishi V23 chassis, There are four 1000 UF capacitors in the DM module that go bad. Location #'s c9b01,c9b02,c9b10 and c9b11. The DM module is the large steel card cage on the left side when looking inside with the back off. Once you get the cage out, remove the board. The caps are the larger ones on the top of the board. They will more then likely be bulged out on top or exploded. Replace with 1000 UF @16V or better. This should get you going again. I've done about 15 of these repairs in the last year. Note: try not to mangle the copper grounding fingers. Good Luck.

Have you looked at the DM board fix yet that's available here. http://www.fixya.com/howto/h154057-mitsubishi_dm_board_repair Check it out. If the inside of your TV set does not look like this, you will need to get the service manual to disassemble the set and get to the DM board, but use the rest of the guide to repair the board. If you are successful, you will save almost a 1000 bucks! Good Luck
