Question about Hitachi Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Hitachi 50UX57B that suddenly shut off and will not turn back on. Bought the set new, no problems until now. Red "power on" light comes on briefly after set has been unplugged for awhile. This TV is in perfect condition otherwise - hate to throw it away!!

This set has a problem most likeyl within the power supply or the horizontal output transistor has failed. In either case, the set will not completely power up. If you can solder and wish to attempt this repair yourself, please update this. Since remote diagnosis with little symptoms like yours at the momenet is difficult at best, I'd suggest that you get a detailed repair estimate (should be less than $100). Post the results here and we should be able to walk you through the actual repair.

Hitachi projection TV does not power up


You probably have a blown 2kV capacitor and 2 amp fuse. Look for signs of black burning inside.

MY HITACHI 50IN REAR PROJECTION WONT POWER OFF SOMETIMES AFTER BEING ON FOR A WHILE IS THERE A SOLUTION FOR THIS


Hitachi had some issues with relays on the power board. Take the back off of the set....on the right hand side there is a circuit board mounted verticaly. turn off the set and tap on the board with something that does not conduct electricity. if the set turns off properly, then you will need to have the power relays replaced.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up


Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
