Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

Hitachi 51UWX20B Projection Color TV. We had a severe Lightning Storm and TV went off. Now when we try to start it up, it starts to come on but immeadiately shuts off? We had it connected to and outside antenna and may not have had it properly grounded. I can't get any help in my area, and wonder if you have any ideas, and know if there is a place I can send ciruit boards to be checked to see if they are good or not. Or if you feel the service manual could be good enough for a novice with good mechanical abilities to repair their own Tv? or is it not worth repairing, it was manufactured in 2002, but had a great picture.

    I guess I am confused if a fuse was blown, would the TV begin to come on at all, like it does? I get snow for a second but then it immeadiately shuts off? It has a reset in the front of the set that does not correct the problem after is is reset. What is the PSU board? What's PSU stand for? and your saying it is not worth replacing it? Is that because of cost for it? The set cost $2200.00 originally.

Have a look at fuse . If it is blown replace it .

If the fuse is ok . Then PSU board is culprit . Repairing it is not worthy .

Hitachi projection TV power but no display after lightning storm, power went on and off a few times in the house, but our house was not zapped.


A model number would help here--if power went on and off it may have damaged the power board in the set--many of these sets have up to 3 mechanical relays on that board--easy to damage them.

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.
