Question about Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV
I don't know about nettiser's credentials, but I've found plenty of people who would disagree with his/her assessment.
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:

for the WS55859 model, which may be a little different.

And I am sure you wont like the suggestion one bit!
Blinking lights without picture and sometimes accompanied by a clicking sound( but not always) is indicative of failed Sustain boards which control video and sound.It is also possible the Power board is also involved The repair on one of these models will set you back about $400-$500 or more depending on the repairer. It is not DIY as you require an understanding of voltage testing at the circuit points on the schematic and a total reset of the convergence unit.
If you had a storm revcently it is possible that a spike caused this. You may be able to claim under FUSION in your home insurance policy/ Also in the future protect expensive electronics by incorporating an anti spike power board
