Thanks Mike for the info.
There are two possible reasons for this kind of symptoms in TV, either it has few bad capacitors in power supply board that are causing insufficient / unstable volts that prevents TV to boot up properly OR its lamp is about to fail and TV tries to fire it up but its not happening and green light is blinking to show that TV is in bootig cycle, since lamp is not dead yet so lamp light doesn't lit.
Bad capacitors in power supply board requires visual check and TV will be disassemble to take out chassis to access to power supply board, this kind of work should be done by handy person to avoid any damage to TV.
If capacitors look good and non is bulged or leaky then replace lamp in TV that is available in Mitsubishi Parts (official site).
