Question about Hitachi 60SDX88B 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 60SDX88B I have a Hitachi 60SDX88B and the picture just cuts off but you still have sound. It comes back on "sometimes" after a while of being off. Last night I was in the room when it went off and it's was like one of the old TV?s powering off where it goes down to a small dot. It is an older TV and I do not want to spend a lot on it I have experience replacing parts on amplifiers so any help would be appreciated.

First of all: If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. It can be much more tricky then working on an amp, and dangerous, be warned... If you don't want to spend too much money, and since you're describing intermittent failures, I would suggest that you open it up and clean the hell out of it, then resolder the connections to all hot parts, plus any solder points that look cracked. Replacing parts can start as low as 10 $, and up to hundreds, so better try resoldering first. Good luck

NO picture or sound.  The red power light goes on and the green lights inside of tv are on. but nothing is working on the screen

You have a problem with the high voltage section that drive the projectors. Look in the back to see if the three projectors are lit. Then we go from there.

If it is only a few days over the warranty call immedieatly, if it is much over that then these newer Hitachis are in my opinion not worth repair, and I mean the newer under $1000 units the parts are near the origianl cost sometimes.
