Question about Hitachi 55FX20B 55" Rear Projection Television
I own the Hitachi 55FX20B Rear Projection TV, manufactured Sept. 1996. The picture became fuzzy (like colors separating) and the TV turned off by itself. When I pushed the power button to turn it back on, the red
power light blinked and there was no sound and no picture.
I pushed the power button to turn off the blinking light, unplugged the TV and the cable television cable from the set and waited 3 hours before turning it back on, but still did not receive sound or picture.
A repair person on craigslist said the issue has to do with the convergence circuit and power supply, both have to be repaired followed by an alignment. The cost ranges from $200-300. Does this sound like the case? Is it easy to fix if I did it myself (I'm not very mechanical and don't want to get electrocuted- I heard that even unplugged, the T.V. holds a charge). Thank you for your time.
TV always has high voltage shock risk while repair. As you said you are not familiar with TV repair so better to handle repair person this issue.
