Blinking green timer light on Mitsubishi WS 55859

Can you please tell me where I can locate the DM capacitors for this model television? I had a repair person come out on the weekend and quoted me a total of $400 for a $40 part that is on the mother board. He showed me the part and said that it ran about $40 but with labor an shipping cost the total would be $400....I can't see paying this with the price of gas almost $5 a gallon!!! Please help!

You can get the repair kit which has the capacitors you need plus a cd with the repair instructions and full service manual at the following link for 35.00 with free shipping. Your model is the V19 but the V21 is the same kit you need as the V19, 20 and V21 are the same DMs Just click on the repair kit catagory and you will see the V21 DM repair kit. and if you leave them a message they will include the info for the WS55859 on the CD.Heres the link.

The WS 55859 Is blinking Timer and will not start up.

You have a problem with blown capacitors in your DM module. Repair shops will cost $300-$600 to make the repair (at least that is the going rate in Dallas) or you can do it yourself for <$15 in parts plus whatever tools you don't have already. I repaired mine about 2 months ago and I am not handy at all. Here is a video that is step by step that can take you through it.

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.

Was the symptom a steady blinking green led/ If so you most likely need just the DM repair kit thats 35.00 and comes with the instructions on CD and the replacement capacitors that repairs the DM module. I can post a link for the repair kit if you would like?

Timer light flashing

The capacitors wont always show any outward signs of being bad. But it the LED blinks constantly without stopping thats telling you the DM isnt completeing the boot sequence. So most likely the capacitors are bad. But dont put the same ratings back. go with 1000ufs @25V but make certain they are the 105 degree celcius capacitors. If you need further assistance let me know
