Re: dm module for a tv

That depends on the make and model of your TV. What model do you have?

Location of the dm module in my mitsubishi 60111 tv

Your model doesnt have a DM module like the later versions. You have the V20A chassis and that doesnt have a DM assembly.

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.

I have a mitsubishi ws 55511 rear projection tv. Yesterday it stoped powering on and the green power light continuously blinks. I have read a couple posts which says that it is the death light and that the...

Age of unit: About 7 years.
Rear Projection HD set, Mitsubishi WS-55511
Nature of problem: Blinking green light of death. Upon plugging the set back in after vacation, the green LED on the front of the set would blink continuously and the set would not turn on. I ordered the blinking green light kit from after seeing this link on a tech forum, suggesting the capacitors were bad on the DM board inside the DM module. The kit arrived within days of ordering. The online instuctions were very detailed and could be followed even by a layman such as myself. Very detailed with lots of photos. My DM module was simpler to remove than the instructions indicated. It simply slid out after about five cables were disconnected from other boards. The module itself is the silver box all the way to the left when looking into the rear of the TV (from the rear of course). There is a plastic guard that surround all the input connections (coaxial connections, home theater control inputs, etc). This is removed with 3 screws. After all the cables to this module are unplugged from other circuit boards, the module will slide out towards you. Then you take the cover off (including the clamp where all the cables are routed into the module) and you can see the DM board (it is labled as such and has 7 capacitors. None of the capacitors were bulged or otherwise defective looking as other posters have reported. Changed them all anyway. Buckled everything up and plugged the set back in. The blinking light started as it always had. It should normally go out in about a minute after plugging in to wall. I really didn't hold out a lot of hope that it would go out....and went out! I pushed the power button and she fired right up! What a thrill! Including shipping, it cost me $45.90 to fix a set I paid about 3000 bucks for 7 years ago and was loathe to just throw away. I certainly wasn't going to pay nearly a thousand bucks to fix this set. It may be a little bulky, but the picture is beautiful as well as the sound system. You guys are great. A very reasonably priced gamble that worked. Watching a movie in HD while I type this, good to have my TV back after almost two weeks without it. I actually can't believe I did it!

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 had a power outage and the timer light will not stop blinking. How do I fix this. Email:

Your dm module needs to be replaced. But because it's a part that is no longer available you must find a tv repair shop that will rebuilt it or already have a chassis available that has the dm module already rebuilt.

Mitsubishi ws-55613 green light blings rapidly and TV will not come on.

The DM module has bad capacitors in it and these will need to be replaced, or the DM module replaced.(about 85% of the time, the caps WILL fix them though...) A good shop should be able to rebulid your module for about 300-400 in the home.

My Mitsubishi tv has a timer light that is green and has been blinking and have not yet turn on, if you can help please send me a pic of the dm board and the capacity module that i have to solder

the digital module is bad, it costs about $800 for the part alone and sometimes other boards go bad along with it, this is the absolute hardest tv to service, no way you will be able to tear this thing down to even get to the digital module. you need a qualified tv repairman and alot of money to fix this.

replace DM

Picture of bad caps

The DM board is the one with the digital connectors on the back panel. If you already have it appart, you may as well check the caps on all of the boards. The caps that go bad are typically Jamicon brand caps in 1000 uF and 330 uF values. There are also a couple of 3300 uF caps in the PS that cause problems.
