SOURCE: Dark , blurry picture

MTNESTR, My guess would be the FBT loc.TH01(flyback transformer) Hitachi p/n#BW03004 which would be far less expensive than replacing the entire deflection board... A shop could ring test the FBT to confirm the failure. I do know the FBT in this unit has an internal resistor that is prone to failure. It is in-line with the focus block and if it's open it would explain the blur and lack of screen voltage to light the crts properly. The deflection board is about $290-$350 plus shipping and a FBT is somewhere between $60 - $90 depending on the supplier. Hope this helps! Bill

toni, you`ll need a tv tech for this problem, spark gaps need to be cleaned, crt sockets need to be cleaned and crt pins on all 3 crt`s need to be sanded, this is a common issue with this model set, good luck, BMW Rider

SOURCE: picture is getting darker and darker

i have the same model with the same problem. i just paid a repair man to fix it. he adjusted the focus block. if you remove the lower front panel, then remove this other access panel under that there will be a block with 6 knobs on it to the upper left of the access port. 2 for each projector. play with the knobs till you can read the menu options again (mine was so dark i couldnt). then turn your color all the way down till its black and white. then adjust them until you get a nice perfect even gray. then turn your color up and adjust your settings. thats it in a nutshell. it took the pro about a half hour or so. if it takes you longer dont feel bad. i hope me paying for this service helps you guys out.

you may have a shorted hori output transistor or open pico fuses they look like resistors in away but they are green or yellow looking some are 5amp or 6amp fuses if they are bad replace with same value.

Could be the blue CRT shorting out. I had the same problem but with red. Eventually it shorted out completely. If it is only 2.5 month old it should still be under warranty and they will fix it.

SOURCE: Hitachi 53" rear projection is losing its picture.

If you are not experiencing any shift in colors, it sounds like the power supply is failing since this will affect all three colors.

53-55 in high def tv, few yrs old. picture is way too red, wont adjust out. what are some possible solutions please


If a Hitachi rear projection it may be an adjustment inside the set--If you comment here with the model number and it is what I suspect--I will tell you a easy way to try to correct this.

As a first step go to black and white program or turn color all the way off and stand back and examine the screen/picture= if not black and white and mostly RED this is a common issue on their projection sets.

Picture dark all channels and cannot brighten using control. Sat connection disconnect, made no diff. Would I need a new lamp? Set 8 yrs old.


Replace resistor RP41. Should be 1.5ohm/2watt. This is the resistor that supplies voltage to the filaments.
Good Luck!

Good Day;

Some cable techs are good but too many are not.l So, if you have not solved this by now try this:

Unplug TV & box, wait 5 minutes plug both back in (reboot).

Good Luck.

Hitachi-picture goes out but can still have sound


If it is a Hitachi 60V500 LCD projection TV, then I would suspect the lamp being the problem.

Blue Ray Compatible? I have had my Hitachi 53SWX01W set for maybe 7 years or so. It is HD ready. My DVD player that I had hooked up to Component jacks #1 crapped out recently and I was using a portable DVD player in the front jacks. Everything always played perfect. I bought a Sony Blue Ray player and a Samsung HD Tuner over Thanksgiving and installed them. HD Tuner on component jacks #1 and the Blue Ray on CJ #2. Both with sound through fiber optic. The tuner was a snap and the picture is great. The Blue Ray was also a snap and Blue Ray disc's play great. My problem is DVD's! When playing a Standard DVD the picture will blank out radomly for 1/2 to 3 secounds and it may do it once or twice per disc or it may happen randomly throughout the disc. Sometimes it will not happen at all and the next day playing the same disc the picture will start blinking out again. There is no interuption in the sound or place in the movie, just a loss of picture! I have traded component jacks between the tuner and Blue Ray, I have change Component cables from very expensive to very cheap and back with no noticable difference. I exchanged the Sony BDP-350 Blue Ray player for another player with no success. I still have the same problems. When veiwing Blue Ray disc's The TV will display 1080i resolution with no problems at all. When playing standard DVD's the TV displays 480p resolution and the blinking problem happens. The Blue Ray player dosen't ramp up the picture quality on DVD's as I thought it would but that could be because I'm not using an HMDI cable which my TV does not have. Please HELP!!! Jim
