65 inch mitsubishi model# 65736 green light blinking


If the TV does not stay on, press the POWER button on the control panel for at least eight seconds to perform System Reset. The TV will turn off. Power on the TV and the green LED will flash quickly for about one minute. The changes you made most recently, before using SYSTEM RESET, may be lost. If this happens frequently, obtain an AC line power conditioner/surge protector.

An unusual digital signal may have been received, triggering a protection circuit. Wait for the light to stop flashing and turn TV on.

Momentary power fluctuation caused the TV to turn off to prevent damage. Wait for the green light to stop flashing and turn the TV on again

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

The unit will not power on. It blinks twice then powers off. Each time I power it on, it blinks twice then powers off. No video, no sound.


B+ over current fault in the power supply circuit, probably a few bad resistors and some switching regulators. Call your local shop for immediate service, its a rear projection TV so it shouldn't cost too much to service this kind of fault. Here's a little trade secret for you, one good way of getting more years of use from your TV is by using a surge suppressor opposed to a surge protector. A good one will start at around $69.00 from BestBuy or Wallmart.
Here's a little basic knowledge on what a surge suppressor is and what it does : Click Here and here's how some will look Click Here.
After you get your TV serviced, be sure to use a good quality surge-suppressor to fully protect your TV from violent AC spikes. Using one will and years of life too your TV :-)

Had a power surge and now the lamp notification is on steadily


This is a common problem and usually shows up when power is interrupted. The capacitors in the micro, digital, and power supply have to be replaced. In my shop, we prefer to send the chassis to Mitsubishi and they repair it. Do you have a local authorized Mitsubishi service center near you?

72 inch rear projection tv took a power surge last


if ure handy pop the back off and there should be a main power board and a fuse on it, make sure you use the same fuse if it is blown do not stick another type or size in it, put it back together and turn it on if it blows again it will be somthing else if not it should work

Panasonic TV model CT 27D10B fried by lightning surge. Where to start looking?


Hi There,

I am unsure as to "where to start looking" means? Do you mean parts to fix it or new TV's?

If you are looking to fix it, you will end up spending a lot more than you prolly want. The surge could have blown a board, Power Supply, fuse, capacitor, transformer or a combination of them all. These TV's are only 27" and if you look on government websites you will see they start the bidding around $5 for the whole TV. If you are looking to upgrade I would suggest balancing a budget that works for you especially with the economic issues going on. 1080p is the latest being talked about, but that doesn't mean it will work for you. I went to Walmart and spend $600 on a Visio HDTV 1080i and I have not had a problem yet (knock on wood). I would not suggest buying a Panasonic HDTV but that is my personal opinion - the majority of issues I have resolved at my full time job came from Panasonic Projection TV's and HDTV. At the same time they were able to shoot out one of first 103" TV's but that just means some tech will have a bigger TV to fix in the future - LOL..

Hope this helps and feel free to rate me..

Happy Holidays..

If your TV is not powering on you probably blew the power supply. These TV are sensitive to power surges. Be sure to use a power strip with power filtering technology (different from a surge protector) costing around $80.00

My sanyo tv was hit by a power surge.now it dosnt turn on. i have a 27 inch sanyo tv


You have a power supply issue on the main board of your set. This is not an easy fix for a home owner, Your best bet is to call a service shop and get a price quote. Tearing into tv's is very dangerous! High voltage is present even when unplugged! Good luck!
