Re: will not stay powered up

This units processor has detected a fault and has shut it down for safety. This means it can be one of about 30 different cuircits that are at fault. this is where troubleshooting starts. technicians have special diagnostic equipment for rca that will read errors in the processor. are u a technician. there are basic voltage checks that can be performed. Warning televisions generate potenitally leathal voltages. do not remove back unless qualified.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525 HDTV that suddenly wont turn on. Just has a green blinking light when you hit the power button. Any ideas?

I found this on another website, most likely it is your power supply capacitors.
  1. Press the "reset" button and hold for 10 seconds .... Does TV turn on and blinking green light turn to solid green.

  2. Unplug the TV from it's power source for various times, ranging between 5 minutes and 24 hours..... Does blinking green light continue upon plugging in the TV.

  3. Disconnect ALL devices from the TV; DVD, Tuner, Cable Box, unplug the TV for various duration times .... Does blinking green light continues upon plugging in the TV.

  4. Press Power and Menu buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  5. Press Power and Display buttons simultaneously and hold depressed for 20 seconds .... Does blinking green light continue to flash.

  6. Insure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.

Diagnosis: If none of the above test resolve the issue, then the failure lies in one of the following:

  1. DM Module Capacitors have FAILED.
  2. DM Module is defective.
  3. EEPROM Board failure
  4. Power Supply failure.

Have a ws-42413 mitsubishi TV

This behavior could be an indicator of power supply problems or abnormal current drain from elsewhere in the set.
Modern supplies are, by design, able to shut down if voltage or currents aren't within the design limits of the circuits they are servicing.
Without some hands-on it is not possible to isolate the problem unless one of the forums deals with a series fault.
If the set had a reset button, it would be located on the outside of it where the user could reset it.
The reset buttons one finds on some sets is nothing other than a very cheap kind of thermal circuit breaker that trips when current is above its limit.
These are kind of prone to failure themselves.

Green power light will not stop flashing and tv will not turn on or off

You need to replace the 1000uf capacitors on the DM board thats the classic symptom of the DM caps being bad the light continues to blink repeatedly. If you need more info on the repair let me know.
