Sounds like I have the same problem here... or at least my friend who's in Iraq family does. Since I'm looking at it for them I'd appreciate being added to the list of "please send me the repair procedure" as well. I'd appreciate it and I know they would as well. Than you in advance!

This fix solved my blinking

This fix solved my blinking green light problem. I replaced the 4 capacitors with 1000mf/35V ones from Radio Shack. It took about 3 hours, but we're up and running. The instructions were accurate. Thanks all.

if you used the radio shack

if you used the radio shack capacitors, your DM board will be toast in about two month or so, they ARE NOT the high temp caps you need!, do yourself a big favor and replace them with the riht high temp caps. it is for your own good, unlss you have a 1000 bucks in a few months to spare. you can find the right caps here http://www.mouser.com/search/refine.aspx?Ntt=140-HTRL16V1000-RC%09

Hey, just a big thanks to

Hey, just a big thanks to everyone. My TV now works!!! I used this link for the instructions, : http://www.chrisandnat.com/temp/BlinkingTV.pdf They are great! And I mail ordered the Caps from http://www.mouser.com/search/refine.aspx?Ntt=140-HTRL16V1000-RC%09 The Caps cost .25 each and I had them in 2 days! Shipping was 10.00 UPS Ground. So for 12.00 I'm up and running. Very easy to do. Took me less than an hour. Good luck everyone.

you should NOT use the Radio

you should NOT use the Radio Shack capacitors as that article suggest as they are not the higher temp. type!!!!

Update:

Update:

First off, a big thanks to Larry and his contributions to us DIYerÂ’s.

Back on 9/23/08, I replaced the 4 caps with RS 1000uF/35V/?C and it solved the “green blinking light” problem. Larry pointed out these caps don’t meet the 105C high temperature requirement and would eventually the damage board.

I replaced those caps with 1000uF/16V/105C caps from Mouser and blinking “green blinking light” came back.

I replaced those caps again with 1000uF/25V/105C variety and weÂ’re back up and running.

IÂ’m not sure why the caps from Mouser didnÂ’t work: bad soldier job, bad caps, or higher internal voltage spikes, but I would use caps with a higher breakdown voltage of 25V or 35V. Although bigger, they do fit. IÂ’ll keep the forum updated on the reliability of this fix. Again, thanks to Larry.

Larry, other than re-checking

Larry, other than re-checking the connections is there another likely cause to having bad(really bad) blue convergence after doing the cap repair? I'm guessing I messed something up while I was in there. If there is any info you could send I would appreciate it.

I've read some more about it and I may need info on the convergence IC fix and maybe a service manual?

It seemed like it was only to secure the box to the board? Does that sound right? It was only on the perimeter of the bottom of the box. When I say box, I mean the case holding the circuit board.

one more question.. when you

one more question.. when you put in the capacitors, do you have to link the silver dot next to it with solder? or just solder the end where the capacitors prong is?
