Customer Question
The timer light ticks...

The timer light ticks on and flashes for like 30 sec before stopping and does it over and over again as long as it is plugged in with out turning on then the power button is pushed

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?

I just got the tv it was used.. Previous owner claimed to not have any issues but its a Mitsubishi Model WD-52628 I believe.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

It wont turn on at all

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

It did at first when we got it and then it was like it got hot and would shut off and that was when the light started flashing and then the power turned off more frequently until it just wouldn't turn on anymore just flash.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

No I dont think so

We have pushed the reset button multiple times and unplugged it also
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 9 months ago

This is a well known issue and I am afraid it is nothing easy on early models it was capacitors on a digital board on your set being a much later one its a matter of replacing the main-board because the DM module is integral on that board, if you want to pursue replacing this board let me know, I do not know at this point if one is available cost of board $100 plus
