Compacitors for 52525

I have found 12 compacitors the 4 on the dm board and 8 on the other 2 circuit boards. Should I replace them all. The 4 on the dm board do not look swollen. It sounds maybe just to replace the 2 on power supply board but I find 4 that are in a cluster. Which ones should I replace

How to replace the dm in wd-52525

The DM is the second board inside the Chassis block directly underneath the FMT board. But replacement DM boards if still good are very expensive your better off replacing the 4 capacitors that fail on the DM.

Green timer light no picture

Also known as the Green Blinking Light of Death.
The repair on this is cheap but very time consuming and wit no gaurentees.
There are 4 Capacitors on the DM board and 4 Capacitors on the Formatter board that are more than likely defective and need to be replaced.
On the DM board the locations are C81A2, C81A3, C81B3 and C81B4. They will probably be swollen.
On the Formatter board the locations are C8F19, C8F21, C8F22 and C8F27. Also will probably be swollen. The values of all 8 capacitors are the same. 1000MF/16V. Replace with value 680MF/16V.
While you have the chassi ripped apart, check the power supply board as well. You should fine some swolle caps on it also. Replace with same value of the one you remove.
Now once all of this is done and you put everything back togeather, you have a 50/50 chance of success. I have found that many surface mount caps can also go bad on the formatter board. If your repair does not work, then replace all of the surface mount caps on the formater board that are 10 and 16 volts.

Good luck to you.

Green light(timer0 is blinking for last 12 hours . no picture . screen is totally dark

this means the DM board is not booting up. You will typically need 4-8 capacitors to fix this issue. you have to pull out the board and solder in new parts. let me know if you feel skilled enough to do this and I can give directions. The caps will usually bulge at the tops and are 1000uf .. mitsubishi recommends replacing with 680uf 16v caps..

if you do not want to repair yourself, a repair center can ship the chassis in for rebuild, total repair about 400 or 500 $
