Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power I have run across this problem 3 times, and solved it the first 2 times by luck, but can't solve it this time. The problem is that when I turn off the power, the picture goes off, but the power light doesn't. It is happening no matter which input I am using, antenna or vid 1 through 5. How can I reset the power so it will go all the way off?

Re: Power

What did you do to solve the problem the first two times as you stated? ok if the light isent going off when the set is that just means that the main relay or power may not be shutting down but the microprocessor is or could even be visa Versa?? Im not there to see the set. Its not a user serviceable thing that you as a consumer can service unless youve had exstinsive training in consumer electronic stuff.. These things are not for the handi-person to tinker with as first off they are expensive pieces of equipment. second is that they do have very very high voltages inside them even when they are unplugged and off for a long time. to service this set your gonna need the experience as well as a service manual and also some special equipment to work on these sets.. The manufacturer as well as the UL peeps state that there are no user serviceable parts inside this type of set.. Sorry but your gonna have to seek a pro to assit ya. Good luck.

Replaced the projection lamp, it is still saying that it is ending reaching the end of its life, Is there a reset button?

    The procedure may vary from Sony model to model. These procedures are for Sony Rear Projections only. For other models, please consult your manufacter's website. All rear projections have the option of reseting the lamp hours. This helps since you will know how many hours your last lamp ran for. Normal lamps should run between 5000 to 8000 hours.

    Try the following procedure:
    Please be cautious when entering service mode. Following the information below and you will have no problems.

    Enter service mode by pressing Display, 5, vol +, Power On.

  • 3

    Proceed to the Option-E screen by pressing the 2 or 5 button
    Option-E 0 0

  • 4

    Change data to 1 using the 3 button on the remote
    Option-E 0 1

    Press Mute Enter to write data.

    When I turn on the TV the green start up light blinks green and the TV comes on with picture and sound for about 2 seconds, then turns itself off and the code light blinks 4 times, pauses then blinks 4...

    4 times blinking means Fan stopped, power is not supplied on Fan 1, Fan 2 Fan 3 and at Fan 4. Or Fan connector is not attached securely. Cleaning these fans by using a vacuum cleaner can also solve your problem. Sometimes these fans are clogged by dust.

    Colors are misaligned on my zeneth r50w46 and the auto convergence option did not solve the problem. the red droops off on the left side of the screen and the green droops across the top center.

    Your convergence IC's are out and this is why you can't use the auto or manual convergence. This type of repair done at a verified Zenith service shop most likely will run you $400.00 to $500.00 dollars. However, if you have some electronic skills and are familiar with soldering and de-soldering, you can do the repair yourself for around $85.00 to $100.00. You will need to buy a convergence repair kit which has all the parts you need and gives pretty straight forward instructions. Plus, if you run into trouble, they have online support. Here is the link for the convergence kit.

    This is not really a hard task to do. It usually takes about 2 to 3 hours from start to finish if you take your time and make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.

    Again, if you don't have any sort of electronic skills, it is always better to have the unit serviced by a professional.

    Good luck!

    Sony lcd projection tv repeatedly turning on & off

    There are 2 primary things that can cause this problem - a bad TEMP sensor that is sensing too much heat, OR, a lamp that is going bad, which sometimes causes excessive heat before it dies. Either way, the set will shut itself off, and you can turn it back on in about 5 min or so, and it will work OK....for another period of time before it shuts off again.

    You need a good TV Tech with the Sony Service Codes for your set, to come out & check your set. The Service Codes will tell him the exact problem you are having, and how many hours your set has been running. Most of the time a new bulb solves this problem, (if youe set is at least 3 years old).

    Mitsubishi WD-62827---PICTURE TURNS GREEN

    I had the same problem. I deducted that if my TV worked fine for an hour or so and then the colors became bad (green, people's faces purple...), it must be a overheating problem. Simple logic, right? So, I picked up a few tools and a small vaccum and went to work.
    I went first for the main source of heat: The lamp. Just a few screws, and I removed it. The lamp cage has a fine screen to prevent the dust to cover the lamp. Mine was covered with dust! And the fan behind the lamp was also covered with dust! Bingo!!! That's my problem! I cleaned everything and vaccumed all the air vents on the the back of the TV. I put the lamp back and checked that the fan was working. The TV works like new since!
    Before you are out of a TV for days and spend an arm and a leg for a "Technician" to fix it (replacing expensive parts that didn't need to be replaced in the first place), try what I described above first. It's very simple and it takes only 15 minutes.
    Since my TV is 2 1/2 years old, I purchased a replacement lamp. I know that one of these days it will burn out. I'll be ready and my TV will be working again in 15 minutes!
    Since my problem was solved, I didn't go to the next step. There must be one or two other cooling fans inside the TV, but they must be working...
    Good luck,

    Caps in the vertical circuit are causing this and taking it to a reputable shop won't be all that expensive... The tech will ESR (equivilent series resistance) test the caps and replace those with a high ESR or open which should solve the problem..
