Default Blinking green light...another victim

Yes, I have the problem. Mitsubishi WD-52525. Can someone email me the instructions/part numbers I will need to replace the capacitors?

Default Poor instructions in kit

Thanks for all of the information on this forum. It was very helpful and I was able to repair my mitsubishi green blinking light of death issue. The capacitors on my board all looked good, but once replaced the problem was resolved.

Just a heads up - I purchased a kit from tvrepairkits and the capacitors provided were the correct type and size for my TV, but the instructions they provided didn't come close to matching what the inside of the TV looked like (55 inch diamond series) and were unusable for the repair. Luckily, I found detailed instructions and pictures posted by someone else who took the time to document the actual repair.

I would recommend you just order the correct parts online and google for the instructions. Don't waste your money on ordering the kit (at least for the 55" mitsubishi tv.) from tvrepairkits.

I had a good experience with their blinking light kit and can't say enough good things about Tv Repair Kits. I tried to fix it myself using instructions found here but i it did not work and I almost destroyed the damn thing. I then bought one of their kits as a last ditch effort before I was gonna toss the TV. The kit arrived in less than a few days and I did the repair again. I also emailed them 1/2 dozen times and each time they replied back with things to check. In the end it turned out to be a blown 9v regulator and the DM caps that was causing my problem. The 9v regulator is rarely bad and almost never mentioned in the forums. Without there help I would have never found out about the regulator and the TV would have been tossed. There kit and videos also showed me how to solder and what tools to buy.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Default Could I get an email of instructions?

Hi Paul,

I have a wd-52725 with a continuously blinking green light. I tried the reset button and tried pressing device and menu for 5 seconds to get a diagnostic blink code (it just keeps blinking). I would love instructions for repair.

My email address is dbatzer (at) cnm (dot) edu.

Thank you so much!

Default WD-57733 Code 66

I have a WD-57733 manufactured in November 2007. Yesterday we started getting the BGLOD. Diagnostic Code is 66. Observations - turn the TV on and you get sound, but no picture. Walk around to the back and you can hear a fan power up and see an ignitor flashing about 6 times, but the bulb never fires. Fan powers down and it repeats the cycle. It will do this two or three times, then the TV shuts down. After you attempt to turn the TV on twice, the red light remains illuminated after that attempt.

Would I be correct to assume that the lamp is fried after 3 years?

Thanks in advance.
Mike

P.S. Thanks for the fast reply with the instruction packet Paul. I thought I would post this though and make sure I am chasing the right problem.

Default The GBLOD has struck again!

Glad to see that I'm not the only one who has experienced the GBLOD and that it appears to be fixable. Football just isn't the same with out the HD on the big screen!

It is also refreshing to see that there are still a few decent people out there willing to help and share helpful information.

Paul,
I have a WS-55513 rear projection and any repair information you could share would be greatly appreciated. I have a Radio Shack near buy to get the necessary components and a desolder tool.

my e-mail is andrew{at}icecoldimages{dot}net

Thanks,
Andrew

Lightbulb As I've said before...

...the best (and fastest) way to get me to send you the instructions is to send your email address to me at my email address, which is pds318 (at) frontier.com, instead of posting your request here.

Unless you just like waiting...

I don't check this forum on a daily basis, so you'll get what you want much more quickly if you will just follow this simple instruction.

Happy Holidays to all - Paul

How to remove back. I just recently had a problem with my WD-52725. I removed the screws from the back it it wont budge. I only removed the one on the back. Is there others? Maybe a picture or a detailed districption of the ones needed to be removed or something would be nice. I just dont want to mess this up. thanks

Question Well....I got the DM board out

Paul,
Thank you very much for the fast response. The instructions are very easy to understand and got the DM board with out much effort.

The 4 caps don't seem to be bulging but will change them out anyway.

I went to Radio Shack to get the new caps but they only had the 1000uf/35v/85c caps. Will these work in lieu of the 105c caps?

Also when I pulled the DM board out there is alot of black mastic looking material around the base where the board sets into the main board. Is this common or is something burned up or melted?

Also noticed at the top where the USB port plugs in, it appears to be a piece of insulation foam that kinds looks burnt or melted too, wondering if this is normal as well.

Thanks again for any input!

Andrew

Andrew:

1) I would not use the lower temp-rated caps.

2) I can't tell you about the black mastic looking substance. You need to look at the board closely to determine if something has overheated and melted.

3) If replacing the caps doesn't work, call TV Repair World as per the instructions I sent you.

Good luck - Paul

Having the green blinking light of death on my WD-60C9.

Called Mitsu tech support and the lower level rep says I need a firmware update he is sending me. Of course, this takes 1 - 2 business days because he has to "put in a request to have it sent" to me.

Is this possible that it is a firmware issue?

I press power, hear the color wheel spin up. The green light blinks as normal. The lamp comes on bright up to the Mitsu welcome screen. Green light continues blinking then the unit just clicks off. Sounds like textbook case of the GBLOD to me. Does not go past welcome screen.

Any thoughts? I have not found much on the C9 models regarding this issue.

Default WD-62725 gblod status

hi everyone, this is my first time posting on but I have been following this thread for a long time. I decided since so many of you have had success fixing ur tv I would give it a shot. Here is what I have changed...
Terminal Board 1- CL203
Terminal Board 2- C2M28, C2M29
FMT Board- C8F19, C8F21, C8F22, C8F27
DM Board- C81A2, C81A3, C81B3, C81B4
Signal Board- C8788, C8738, C8717, C8761, C8780, C8798, C87A3, C8797, C8710, C8727, C87A0, C87A7, C3E51, C3E52, C3E53, C3E54.
Power Supply Board- C9A52, C9A51, C9A61, C9A62, C9A39, C9A40, C9A37, C9A38
Also checked fuses from Power Supply, Dm Board, and FMT Board- F8F01, F8F02, F8F03, Z81A1, Z81A2, Z81A3, Z81A4, F9A05, F9A04, F9A02, F9A03, F9A01, F9A08, F9A09, F9A07, F9A06 F9D00.
No severed wires, and checked all resistors. Even after all of this work it still does not work, just blinks at me and I just blink back at it. Im lost. I have no idea what is left to change or check. Got any ideas? suggestions? if not it will be dragged out to the curb.... or shot at....or dragged behind my truck.

I had the BGLOD and I have just removed the DM board out of my WD-52725. I looked at all the caps even in the other boards and none of them are bulging. Should I replace them anyways and try it or should I be checking for some others also.

Default Blinking green light on 1080p mode only ???

ok i need some advice, first time in hi def forum, i have mitsubishi wd-y65 1080p tv
this past summer it started to act up meaning, when i turned the tv on, the green lite would start blinking and the picture would display for about a half a second then go out, off and on, off and on, it kept repeating this until i turned it off.
so i did some checking on the net, and found out that the lamp ballast is a longtime problem with this type of tv (part # 938p060010) so i bought one off e-bay and installed it, and it worked fine for about 6 months, i am using a hdmi cable and 1080i mode from my dvr recorder to the tv.
this past thursday, the green lite started to blink again and the picture would go off and on, same as before.
so i bought another one. installed it and it did not work. i got inside, checked all my connections, plugged it back in .... same thing. did not work.
so i connected a regular round CABLE..... (cable out ) from my dvr recorder directly to the tv. its really fuzzy but i can see the picture. but the picture did not start going off and on.
i started messing around with the tv and
i switched the picture over to 480i mode and low and behold the picture is great. its just like it was, before all this stuff started happening.
what does this mean,
1- that the hdmi cable is bad
2- that the 1080i mode on the tv or dvr is bad or
3- that the lamp ballast that i just purchased only works on 480i mode...... that doesn't sound like it could be the problem but u never know???
or 4- that the FIRST lamp ballast is still good and i can use that on 480i mode too !!!!

any suggestions would be helpful
thanks in advance.
