Question about Mitsubishi WS-65869 65" Rear Projection Television

Mitsubishi TV Model #ws65869 Blinking Green light

After a power outage the TV would not turn on. The green timer light blinks all of the time when the unit is plugged in. The reset button, nor any of the buttons on the TV or the remote control have any effect on the TV.

Can you help me with this issue.

    Actually, mine is the 55869. After power outage. Same blinking green light. I read all the posts, went to Radio Shack, bought 1000/35 capacitors... plus de-solder, and solder and put new ones on the DM board.... uess What ?? same blink green light.... Replacing the IC may be beyond my skills ... that IC looks really tiny. I assume by IC you mean the IC9B00. where can I get one of those ? Should I just send the board to someone to repair ? Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply I just got up.

From what I understand of your problem it is most likely a blown capacitor or main IC. Unless I can open up the unit and test the IC's and capacitors I can not be really sure which is why I hardly answer questions about TV''s as they are hard to troubleshoot without the unit in front of you. Ive found a site that can help you via a service manual since I could not find the exact service manual for you from my manual book. The site also has the parts that you will need if ever im right and it is the capacitor or IC. As for the IC's by experience is hard to test without an Oscope but you can do it by gradually eliminating the problem, again you will have to refer to the service manual regarding that. By the way the capacitors I mean is the one that goes to the main module as that is what powers the controls for the TV. the green light is just the "pilot light" which means you have power to the TV but the power is not going past the capacitors to the main controls or the main IC. So simply put the problem can be the capacitors (Which is what you check first) if they are ok then look at the IC via using a service manual. You can use a multitester for the capacitor first if they are dead then just change them and you should be ok. Let me know what happens or updates ill reply to them as well.

There was a power outage in my zipcode; and when the power came back on, the timer light on my tv was blinking and will not stop. This is not allowing me to turn on my tv.

Thats a very common problem caused by bad DM capacitors. The caps discharge during the power loss and then cannot recharge when the power is restored whcih causes the steady blinking green led. You can get the DM repair kit for your model at which does include the upgraded caps and the CD with instructions.

Green LIght Blinking

Does the led ever stop blinking? No ..well in that case generally this indicates a standby voltage problem...if all those voltages ok then the cuircit known as digital module is at fault. also make sure the lockout has not been activiated. i really dont think it could but to unlock hold menu button down for 10 seconds. After all that i believe it would be a bad digital module

No power just blinking green light

I had this problem last year. Just the blinking green light. the tv would not turn on. It was the power module. A local electronics tech fixed it for me for $300.00. It was a circuit in the panel that needed to be changed.
