Question about Hitachi 53FDX20B 53" Rear Projection Television

Red led stays on after turning off.

The problem with my TV is that the red led stays on after turning off the TV. The TV comes back on and every thing works just fine. I've tried to unplug the set for awhile then plugging it back in and the red led came on. I turned it on and off and the led still is on. Any ideas?

Check relay s901 in power supply. It sometimes can be stuck in the closed position causing the symptom you describe.

Re: Red led stays on after turning off.

Aren't you talking about the standby led? cause that is perfectly normal... when it's on it means you can turn the TV on by remote, usualy it goes away when you turn the TV off manualy by pressing the OFF button on the set, but is this really your problem?

Hello, A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.
You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed. This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot! Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
I hope that this help to rectify the fault of the projection TV....

43FDX15B No picture, Power light stays on

Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

Hitachi 60sdx88b

The flashing red light means that the tv is in protection mode. The tv will not turn on when the red LED is flashing. The most common problem for Hitachi are the convergence output ic's. But they useually do not cause the LED to flash. This tv does also have a problem with Q777 going bad. This will cause the LED to flash. If Q777 is bad the horizontal circuit needs to be modified. This must be done by a tech.

Red light stays on

First before a reset the set must turn on, if the set just sits there with the red LED on you have further problems, so does the set display anything?
