This is a model prone to this problem.

In a nutshell all these sets develop this trouble. Google the model number and you will see what I mean.

I worked on a lot of these when new and also under extended warranty.

Three circuit boards are involved and any of them can cause this--bad filter caps on power, FM, or DM boards cause this problem.

At first you could order any of them and just replace, problem was the caps on all 3 were going bad--at 2-3 years they started dropping like flies. It was not strange for us to have 12 or more at one time in the shop.

Eventually it got so bad the boards were no longer available from Mitsubishi except on a rebuild basis and now that is gone.

To avoid a class action lawsuit over tens of thousands of these models (yours is the worst) they came up with a "solution"

About a year ago they started selling on an exchange basis the entire signal CHASSIS, it contains all three boards and the units are rebuilt---last time I heard only available through a Mitsubishi authorized service center and part wholesales for 200.

The problem with trying to repair the boards is you fix one and shortly after another fails etc.

Look into the Chassis exchange or consider another set. Needless to say I would not recommend another Mitsubishi DLP.

Let me know if you have questions.

I set my timer last night. the lights went off at the designated time this morning, but now the light is blinking. What does that mean?

Troubleshoot section in manual says, 'recheck wiring.'
Cut back insulation on stranded wire so stranded is longer than solid, Then wrap stranded around solid, and apply wire nut. After nut is tight, pull on stranded wire to make sure it is not loose:
Check light bulbs are tight in socket. A fellow had same problem with programmable timer and discovered light sockets were dirty and not making good contact with bulbs.
If wiring is correct, try resetting timer.
Timer could be defective.

3 blinking lights - Samsung DLP

Remove your new bulb and examine the connector carefully. The inexpensive replacement bulbs tend to arc and ruin your $700 ballast; sad to say. If everything looks good, make sure the interlock switch on the bulb cover opening is engaging. It won't fire up if it thinks that door is open.
