Question about Hitachi 70VS810 70" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Won't turn on?

Yesteday my 70VS810 made a "buzz" sound and shut down. Now it will not turn the screen on and the "lamp" and "temp" lights flash in red when it tries to power up. The lamp fan does run, but no picture. Is this something simple? The warranty place is telling me 3 months until they can even look at it. I am hoping it's a fuse or something. Thank you in advance

Re: Won't turn on?

You need to check the lamp itself,sometimes they just blow up like a bulb does and if the lamp is good make sure all the fans are running and all compartments are close properly like where the lamp sits.Set needs to be unplug from the wall while you check.The wainting is not acceptable for 3 months.Let Us know if you need more information.

I have ablack screen and I turn the tv on and the lamp light flashes and the Temp light flashes and will not turn on No Sound and just a black screen

When the temperature light flashes then you have an overheating issue or at least the set thinks you do. It could be a bad temp sensor or as minor as the fan not working or an obstructed air path. The reason it won't come on is it is in protect mode when it senses a high temperature to protect the componenets. You will need to have the sensor check and also make sure all fans are working and there is a clear path for fresh air to cool the set.

Burned out lamp?

First. Turn on the set and see if the Lamp Illuminates, If so then you have a bad Color Wheel. If the Lamp does not light up, you have a bad lamp.
Take out the lamp and look to the center of the lamp. If you see broken glass inside you have a bad lamp.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? if you heart clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the ballast that's the board that powers the lamp.Do you hear buzzing,whirling,or high pitch sounds?If you do it could be the color wheel which is a little disc looking that when the light of the lamp goes through it creates the colors on the tv.This are the most common failures on samsungs.

If you hear the Lamp fan turn, it is probably the lamp it self that has failed. If you do not hear the lamp fan turn then the fan could be bad or binding.
Hope this helps,
