Hi same here, blinking green

Hi same here, blinking green light on ws-55513. Please send help!!! Thank you so much! P.S. shouldn't Mitsubishi have done a recall? Every single one of these has done this by the looks of things. Don't get it. adamstriz@hotmail.com

Larry, I dont know for sure

Larry, I dont know for sure if I have the same problem as the others here. I dont recall seeing any flashing lights other than the ones in my head when my 2 year old 55" died. Had a friend at the time worked on tvs who relaced some caps . Worked good for 2 years then died again. Please send me the fix too. Thank you. Mike smutpup@wctel.net

Larry, I'm yet another

Larry, I'm yet another frustrated owner of a Mitsubishi WS-55513 with the blinking light problem. I guess I'm lucky in that I haven't been resetting the TV as others have. Would you please send me the repair instructions so I can see if I can make this thing work without forking out the big bucks. Thanks so much! Paul tapir123@yahoo.com

You can get detailed

You can get detailed instructions off this site. They are in the articles section. Type in Mitsubishi repair in the search box and you should get it. I think it was the first one that popped up. It's three pages and perfect. It is for a different tv but it's a Mit. WS and the guts are just the same as the 55513. Few less screws and some of the wires you have to loosen might be different. Use a ground strap so you don't make this $5 problem into a serious one. Good luck, worked for me.

So I replaced the capacitors

So I replaced the capacitors and now when I plug the tv in, I get a ticking noise and the green light still blinks. I have tested the fuses on the board and they seem to all give feedback. Ideas? And helpw ould be appreciated!

There are instructions right

There are instructions right here on techlore. Open the articles section and type in " mitsubishi repair " in the search box. The first article that comes up is how to fix this problem. It is for a different model mitsubishi but I used it to fix my ws-55513. Same parts and everything, once you get into it you'll see. That article is the only thing I needed to fix my tv besides parts and a solder iron. My total cost for my 55513 was $12. Buy 35v 1000uf 105o capacitors,grab a screwdriver and get ready to watch tv!...as far as any other problems go I can't help. I'm not an electrician, I'm actually a car guy so until I have another problem with mine all I know how to do is replace these capacitors. Good Luck

I'm having problems with my

I'm having problems with my WS-55513. It started with the screen going in and out from a black screen to cable again, then the remote control and the buttons on the front of the TV stopped working the next day. The volume stays at 0 but I can still change channels. It is my parents TV so I'm not sure if there was a power surge or anything else that could have caused damage. Any info will help! email - Revolsnayr@hotmail.com

Larry Dillon said: Check and

Larry Dillon said: Check and double check all of the cables and plugs and make sure they are not pulled out a little bit. I have seen this happen a hundred times, and even when I have done work on a TV set this has happened. That is why i ALWAYS, before plugging in a set, go over all of the cables and plugs by hand to make sure they are all seated into their sockets all the way.

Mr. Dillon,

I too have the flashing timer green LED on my Mitsubishi WS-55513.  My wife was changing the desired input (TV was on and everything was fine), then the unit began acting as if the software / firmware was messing up.  She tuned the TV off and now it will not respond.  All we have if the flashing LED.....

I have checked all cables.

Any assistance will be GREATLY appreciated.

Mr. Dillon,

Mr. Dillon,

As requested, my e-mail address is Pontiacfan455@comcast.net.

Note: I left my TV on all night, and when I awoke, the flashing light had stopped flashing (after at least flashing for four (4) hours yesterday). It is working just fine now........

As a precaution, please send instructions on what I should check if this WS-55513 acts up again.

Thanks for responding, and have a great weekend.

Larry,

Larry,

Good Afternoon and Happy Friday! I just received your kit and it looks like the Capacitors are OK. There are no bulges on the tops...could they still be bad? I did notice however that there are other capacitors (3 in total)in the set that have a yellowish glue/caulking in appearance type substance that seemed to come out of the top of the capacitors and run down the side...does this mean anything? Did they rupture, is this some type of factory insulation????? I have no idea...lol I have pics of everything....let me know if you want me to send them to you. Didn't want to start removing good capacitors...thought it best to consult with you first....Thanks again as always for your time. john curtis

take out the Dm , take off

take out the Dm , take off the case around the DM, reinstall the DM, making sure it is seated correctly. also would depend on how long you reset the TV when you had the blinking light and then the set started working again??
