The timer light is continuosly blinking when i plugging in the tv (mitshubishi wd-5252) and won't reset?

Thats one of the famous capacitor issue most likely. Thats the V26 Chassis DLP and usually that symptom is caused by failed DM and Power Board capacitors. There is a repair kit that will work in alot of cases with that symptom. Its called The V26 Chassis DM / Power repair kit available at the following link with detailed instructions

No Video or Sound after power outage

While it's certainly possible to fry the whole power supply or the DMD board, it's more likely that you've blown a capacitor. This same situation happened to my brother's TV after a power outage. I told him to unplug it for a half hour and that didn't help. He left it unplugged and when I finally got around to open it up the following week, I turned it on and worked. (I told him I fixed it).

Unfortunately the same thing happened after the next power outage so I opened it up and replaced two leaking capacitors by the power cord. It has yet to fail again after numerous power outages.

So first thing to try is leaving it unplugged for a few hours or even a day. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again. If it does, either you or someone else should open it up and check for leaking or blown capacitors.

My Sony KDS-R50XBR1 has green hues that don't seem to respond to color adjustment in the menu.

It is you Optical Block/OB. sony is offering an exchange/deal for owners of 50 and 60" xbr1. I have contacted them and they are going to send me a new TV at an awesome price. This is do to the class action law suit. optical blocks are very expensive. The tv itself is not woth the investment.

We had a power outage the green blinking light will not stop so we can turn on the set.

That means that the microprocessors inside the set have not reset or don't agree that everything is okay. What should happen is the light should blink for about a minute then stop. It could be capacitors in the power supply which a tech could fix in your home or there is another part tht can cause this symptom but Mitsubishi can't supply the part so you have to remove the chassis and ship it to Mitsubishi for repair.

It powers up but no picture? In my experience with Hitachi TV's this has been an issue with the convergence IC's failing. You will need to have a technician replace those if needed.

Hitachi rear projection tv

Please contact Hitachi at sounds like the light engine. This is really expensive to replace. I had the same problem and was told that because our t.v. was out of warranty that we would have to pay to have it replace. A light engine can cost between $700 and $1200 to replace. I am willing to start a class action law suit to get Hitachi to pay. It is obvious that this is a manufacturing flaw. Please let me know what they told you! Our t.v. is 3.5 years old and the color starting to get bad with the arches about a year ago and since January of this year the color has gotten worse. I called Hitachi and was told that the lamp had to be replaced. We did replace the lamp and the problem was still there...we are now out $200. I called back and explained that the problem was still there. After some research on the appears the the light engine is the defect!! They will tell you that your t.v. is out out of warranty. This is there way of getting out their responsibility. Don't let them buffalo you! I will start a class action law suit against them to get them to own up to their responsibility. Please let me know as to what you have found

Hitachi 50v710 Yellow spot

I found out that Hitachi has a class action law suit against them for the light engine problem. I called them and asked what they were going to do for my tv which is out of warrenty. The reply was that they would pay for new light engine. I said what about labor. No they would not pay for labor. I asked to speak to supervisor. I was told by supervisor that the tv had to be inspected by certified repair person. Cost for this was $125 but would be applied towards the total labor cost. Repair guy came to house walked in and said he did not even have to turn tv on to know the problem. We called Hitachi to set up shipment of part. Hitachi told me at that point that they would cover all labor costs also. Part has been installed this week and tv is like brand new set.

Power outage fried my TV

Usually,the AC fuse is located by following the AC cord into the tv and the culprit will be close to where the cord attaches.Note:if the replacement fuse blows,then additional parts need to be changed.
