Emmettsfixit's post might not be clear if you hadn't read the original solution he/she's talking about....

The flashing green timer light after a lightning storm seems to be a very common problem with old Mistubishi rear projection TV's. A friend and I had the exact same problem. And the following solution has appeared on numerous posts here and other websites. Thanks to Slinteriors who originally put the retail parts link:

Using this and other sites, I spent $36 bucks and a little time with a soldering iron to replace the capacitors on the DM board and got mine up and running (WS55859). I've never really worked on electronic circuit boards before, but the helpful advice at these sites got me up and running. Definitely check it out before you hire someone or replace your TV:

If replacing the 7 caps doesn't work I then try to re-solder the small 8 pin ICs. Be very careful and try to avoid cooking it or leaving a solder bridge. If that doesn't work either you'll have to replace the DM-POWER board. You'll beed a Mits authorized service center to order the part. Goodluck.

Green blinking light following a power outage


I rebuild the DM power supply in these sets with about a 50% success rate. Sometimes changing the 7 1000uf caps on the small power supply in the DM will fix it, you'll also have to solder the small 8 pin ICs as well. Do this carefully as you do not want an accidental bridge. If this does not fix your problem, replace the DM-POWER board not the DM Assembly. It's about a 300 dollar difference. You'll need a mitsubishi authorized service center to order the part for you. Goodluck.

Power was off


You need to replace 4 capacitors on the DM board. It is located inside a metal box on the left side of the set, looking from the rear. The original parts are 1000uf 16v. You will need to install 1000uf 25v or 35v. They are located at the top of the board and are green colored.

Blinking green light will not power up


My WS-55859, Did the same thing. Power went out, when it came back on the green light in front of TV would blink, but TV would not power on. Did some googling and saw multiple posts for "blinking Green light" or "Blinking Green light of death". Most of the posts pointed to replacing capacitors on DM Power board. I followed the direction and it worked great. Note the TV shop guy who did the soldering for me said the capacitors "looked fine" and they were not the problem. I couldn't tell the difference between a good or bad capacitor, so I asked him to swap them anyway. He did, I plugged the board back in, buttoned up the back of the TV. After 60 seconds Green light stopped and I started watching TV again... Here is the link to the best instructions I found (http://hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=32186).

Blinking green power light & shut down


There are (4) 1000uf @35V capacitors all together on the DM board that need to be replaced some models have 1000uf @ 16V but they are all right beside each other and all rated at 1000ufs the voltages will be stamped on the capacitor along with the uf ratings.
