SYMPTOM: Power LED does not stop blinking after plug in.
CURE: Check C9B01, C9B02, C9B03, C9B13, C9B14, C9B17 and C9B18 (1000 uFD, 16V,
105C) on the DM Power PCB located within the DM Assembly. If they are bad, replace them with
part # 181P734030 (680 uFD, 16V, 105C).
I have done one of these repairs and they are quite difficult so have a tech do this repair.

    these are failed capacitors in the DM module. this is the Digital module, a large shielded metal box to the left side inside the tv. over time capacitors (mini batteries) fail due to age, they dry up and cause failures in the system. electronics is not infailible something at some time will fail. remember if the set is plugged in it is always running. this a job for a tech it may cost you $300.00 depending on the tech you get. just tell them what I told you about the capacitors in the DM circuit so he (or she) isn't fumbling around to find the problem. this is a known failure in this set. like I said... this is a difficult repair it takes complete dismantling of the internal components to get to the caps.(capacitors). this repair is not for the novice.

Power went off in house when it came back on the green light on the front panel keeps blinking will not stop Mitsubishi Bigscreen model ws- 65909

I've got a 65535. When this happens, you can sometimes press the On-Off button for 10-15 secs until the light goes off. If that doesn't work, then unplug the tv for 30 seconds or so, then plug back in.
These sets are known to have power supply issues, and the blinking light may be a coincidence to the power supply failure. It's fairly easy to repair if you know how to solder.

We have the dreaded blinking green "timer" light after we unplugged the WS - 65909. We can't get it to reset according to the owner's guide instructions.

The Digital module must be repaired. It is not booting up. When first plugged in the LED in that set will blink for 70 to 90 seconds. That is the amount of time it takes for the digital module to boot up. If it continues to blink past that time the module is belly up and needs to have some capacitors changed in it. Most reputable shops can do this in your home and average cost is between $150 and $250 depending on where you live.
