Mitsubishi WS-65511 has flashing timer light but will not turn on.

I used to have a WS55909 and had this problem. The light is supposed to blink for one minute while the DM (digital module) boots up after a power loss. If the light continues to blink indefinitely, there is a problem with that board. The DM power supplies are known to have faulty capacitors on these models and will need to be replaced. If I remember correctly, there are (7) 1000uf 25v capacitors and they should be desoldered from the board and replaced with 35v ones. Note that my TV model already had 35v caps but changing them solved the problem: electrolytic capacitors have a much shorter life than other components.
The DM is on the left side and is where ANT-DTV and the IR repeaters plug in. The power supply is the board above the main DM board inside the DM case.
If this sounds too technical for you, get a new TV because a repair guy will charge you more than the TV is worth. In other words you could get a (30-46") LCD TV for the same price.

Rapid flashing light and now power-up after power outage

Replacing those capacitors usually solves the problem however sometimes the issue is back in the power supply. Make sure the 12 volts be supplied to the DM module is present. If not you'll need to fix the power supply.
