Hitachi Projection Color TV 60SBX78B

The set was playing and I heard a pop and it went blank. When I replug to unit into the electic I can see light inside for about 2 or 3 seconds and then it goes dark. If I plug it in and immeidately push the power button the red light comes on for 1 or 2 seconds and then goes off. Can you help? I am an novice and don't really do electric repairs.

My email address is esq61@comcast.net

    I have the same problem with my Hitachi 50VS69A. As I was watching there was a loud pop and it shut off. When I turn it on all three lights blink and there is a buzzing sound that comes and goes. After a few minutes, it shuts down. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping it's not a big repair that costs more than a new TV. This one is only 2 years old.

If you have Hitachi model number 50UX58B, 60UX58B, 50UX58K, 60UX58K, 50SBX78B or 60SBX78B and you have the following symptoms you may want to grab a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit that includes the parts and instructions to fix these models. This is a fairly common problem with the above model numbers. It is typically caused by a blown capacitor and pico fuse. Again, you can get a kit from the above address. 
Here are the symptoms...

Primary Symptom: No Audio or Video. Power light will come on briefly then shut off.
Other Possible Symptoms : The green LEDs on the circuit board light up for a few seconds then turn off.

Hope this helps,

Check your owner's manual and see if there are instructions for setting the convergence. This lines up the different color guns so that you don't need your 3D glasses. If setting the convergence doesn't work, you may need new IC chips. Good luck!
