Default WD-57731 Blinking Green

TV has blinking green timer light. Can I get the instructions as to where the DM module, capacitors, etc are?.. and how to clean/repair them? Thanks, I will offer a non-poisoned fishhead in return.

I have an old WS-A55 with the green blinking light error code 23 - Horizontal Deflection Failure.
Should I scrap it, or try to fix it?

Default Are you offering to buy us all new sets?

xuchenxixu:

Each person posting here paid over two to three grand for a home theatre component from a name-brand manufacturer (Mitsubishi) that should reasonably be expected to last 4 - 5 years without having any major problems.

The aforementioned manufacturer is not acknowledging that there is an issue with specific electronic parts contained therein, is offering no after-warranty assistance despite the fact that hundreds (if not thousands) of their customers and repair technicians are reporting the same failure to them.

Are you saying that we should all just shrug our shoulders and eat the loss of an HDTV set rather than try to repair them?

Or, are you offering to buy us all new sets? If not - Butt Out.

Default Green flashing death - Possible power reset solution?

My set went on the green blinking light frenzie today with the typical problems posted of not being able to power it on (Model WD-52725) . However, after unplugging it for a few minutes and then replugging it in it did power back up and upon doing so it asked if I had changed the lamp (which I didn't of course). It has done this to me a couple of times over the past few years (being that it is over 4 years old) and it usually happens after a power outage (or possible surge being that the lights in my house go out temporarily). I also have an expensive Monster surge protector on the tv & its accompanying components. Not sure of the cause necessarily of the green blinking light, but hopefully this might help others from having to dig into their tv's and replace parts themselves. For me, I'll just keep on re-booting until it doesn't work anymore - but who knows.... I'll probably be back asking for your repair intstructions. However, thanks in advance for your willingness to forward them!

I would definitely recommend that you give it a good "kick in the ass rebooting" (unplugging it for 5 - 10 minutes and then plugging it back in) before ripping its guts out and replacing the crappy caps Mitsubishi originally installed.

Tht's a LOT easier than the repair that is required when THAT doesn't work... ;-)

Sadly, I'll be waiting to hear from you...

PS: To those of you that need these repair instructions: If you P.M. me - but don't give me your email address - I kinda have no clue where you need me to send them...



Paul

Default Help please

I have a Mitsu Wd-52725, with the same green blinking light problem.
When it 1st appeared I could here a relay clicking somewhere. I powered down, and rebooted with no luck. Since them I have replaced the 4 caps on the DM board and the one next to it(PWB?) as they also appeared to be blown. Put it all back together, and got the same thing. (no more relay clicking though) Today I took it apart again and checked the fuses on the power supply. They all appear to be OK. Any other info would be appreciated. I am getting near the end of the rope.

Default Here's another one....

Hi,

I have a WS-55613 and now am faced with the green light of death as well. Mine is toast. I went on vacation for a week and left it unplugged. It has now been back on for a week and the green light won't stop blinking.

I called Mitsubishi and the lady told me she knew about the problem, but as everyone else here has posted, it is out of warranty and nothing she could do to help.

I went to a local ASC and the technician told me it would be $150 to come out but it would be a waste of time as he already knew it was either a bad board or the cheap caps.

I called Mits back and informed them of this and they said an "Advisor" MAY decide to pay for a portion of the repair if a AST came out and diagnosed the problem.

I'm by no means skilled in electronics repair, but I have a few friends that are. I am not ready to give up on the TV and would greatly appreciate any help with directions/pictures/suggestions.....

On a side note, I was shocked to find out so many people are having this same problem and curious why Mitsubishi wouldn't extend the warranty for this known defect. If this were a vehicle manufacturer (Oh wait they are), this would have been a giant recall.

Thanks in advance for any help.
