Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
Don't throw in the towell just yet...
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.
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:

Sorry to inform you but this is total disaster. The power supply and possibly the display boards have been compromised. TV;s and other sensitive equipment neeed a power surge protector boad. The cost to fix this is around 500-600 dollard. However if you have household insurance a claim can be made if you are covered for FUSION. Parts but not labor will be paid by your insurance company. Buy a surge protector board, $25 for the future protection of expensive electronics
