Your flyback transformer is going bad. It will likely need to be replaced.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Does the LED light up when you press power? have to tried to enter the self diagnostic blink code by pressing menu and input on the front of the set both in together for 8 seconds and see if the LED will blink a two digit code? If so let me know what the blink code is.

If youre not sure which one to order, leave them a email and they will respond quickly, just let them know your model number and what youre needing. they are listed under the projection CRT catagory on the left side of their page.

The problem is the Convergence circuit and the reason it does not power up is that one or two of the 5a pico fuses have opened when the Convergence IC failed. It is either going to be a pair of STK392-570's or a single IC STK393-110. That is as long as this set is a Mitsubishi made in the last 7 to 9 years.
I would estimate the cost to repair 280.00 plus service call fee if any, plus tax on parts.
Let the Tech check it out. If if it cost less than 400.00 to repair, it may well be worth taking the chance.

Most likely your problem is caused by a fault on the Vertical Stablization board on the Red CRT. Remove the speaker grill, then remove the screws that hold the mounting board that contain the speakers. Look inside the TV to the left. You should see the Red CRT. On the side of the yoke towards the bottom of the Red CRT, you should see a gray or dark plastic housing. You should see wires with a with white plug on the end, that plugs into a board on the side of the Red CRT. That's the Vertical Stablizer board. Take a piece of wood and lightly move the wires over to one side while turning the power button on. Your TV will most likely power up.
This is the #1 cause of most of the Flashing Green Light Of Death Problems you see with so many of the Mitsubishi Rear Projection TV's made since about 2000. The reason for it is because Mitsubishi runs the power feed into that board, then daisy chains it over to the Center CRT, which then feeds to the CRT on the right. It's causing the Red CRT's Vertical Stablization board to be overloaded on the power feed circuit, thereby causing the contact on the little PC board to burn. If you are good at soldering, you can mostly likely get behind the connector where the plug goes, and resolder the terminals, making sure you first unplug the tv, and let is sit for at least a half hour before working on it. Wouldn't want you to get electrocuted and have a bad case of the frizzies.
Good Luck and hose this helps.

Looks like you are going to be working with the following:
1080i (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV)
Hook up depends on what else you have connected to the TV. If you have nothing connected to the DTV component inputs, I suggest using those, as it will allow up to 1080i. Otherwise, use the 2 other component connections directly to the left of the DTV connections.
