    On the QX-722 board, LED 1 was red and LED 2 was green and that's why they suspect that card is bad. But they said the QX-141 card could be bad too and why I'm not sure. This is all kind of new to me.

    Okay I need to correct myself. It's the QX-722 board they think is bad. And they said it could be also the QX-141 board too. And the QX-141 board is the expensive one.

    Just got off the phone with Mitsubishi and from what leds are on or off they think there are multiple problems going on. So I guess I might have to get a tech to take a look.
