Question about Mitsubishi WS-65513 65" Rear Projection HDTV
The green led light constantly blinks. I tried the reset button and green light is still blinking. I have a lot of experience with soldering. Do you have any suggestions or can send repair directions/protocol for the DM board.
via email? Thank you in advance for your help. Your help is much appreciated!
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

OK, I posted earlier today how replacing the caps didn't work for me. After redisassembling the unit and putting it back again, it works!!!! I have NO idea what I did wrong the first time, but replacing the 4 16v caps with higher rated ones is the magic touch!

I guess i am the same issue as everyone else. Blinking light. I am begging, please forward the instructions to larrycain_84yahoo.com. My model number is WD62525. thank you

I tried replacing the 4 caps but the green blinking light it still flashing. Any other suggestions? Should I try to put the 25v in instead?

Your a genius!!!! The hair dryer trick did work. Heat up the perforated metal box, the bigger box on the right for about 90 seconds, this should work.

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.

Wow... I cant believe this is such a common problem. I have the same issue. This has happened a couple times and after a while the light stopped and then I was able to turn on. When I say a while 30-60+ min. Now this morning nothing works and it has been longer than that. I would greatly appriciate it if you could send me the soltion and any tips. I have never soldered before, will I have to do that? I dont have the $$ to send out so I will do what I can to fix asap. Thanks again my email is [email protected]

I have the same tv and my tv used to shut off by itself every now and again. One time it just didn't come back on and the light just flashes. Could some one send me the manual and maybe some suggestive ideas on how to help? Thanks. [email protected]

I am having the same problem (blinking green light) and the manual that came with the TV does nothing for me. If I mess witht he TV my pressing the reset button a couple of times the TV will come on, once on it will work. But I left it over night and the TV doesn't work again.
Can you please send me the service manual and any other useful information.
Email: [email protected]

I had the green blinking light and I did just as the manual said and replaced the four capacitors. This solution worked great and my dad couldn't be more pleased. Now if I could get him to give me a 1000 dollars.

I am also having this green light blinking issue. I am an experienced solderer. Can't you email me the service manual? Then I can order the parts and save me $1000 until the new laser tv's come out.

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!
