Question about Hitachi 51SWX20B 51" Rear Projection Television

Tv turns itself on and off

For a while now i'll go into tv room and find set turned on. at times it will turn itself off while I'm watching. nobody can seem to find anything wrong,at least till warranty is over!! It bothers me because it is very intermitant and until they are watching it happen before them, nobody believes its happening. I'm upset that while I'm on holidays or gone for a few days it will be on! I have seen it turn it turn itself on and when I've gone back later, its off! I have not seen it turn on actually,but find red light on and faint glow to picturte as it has no input because other components are off. It had been shut-off correctly when I left the room. ghosts have been suggested, but I have a hard time with that one!

Screen distorts for a while then turns off

Your convergence chips likely failed and shorted out. This will cause many project TV sets to shut down to protect themselves from any damage. Take a look at this fixa page for more details or goto the site for parts and instructions. Here is the fixya link

My TV turns itself off and on by itself,

If you're having the TV set completely turn off, then on, which will be accompanied by audible relay clicks, then this is a problem relating to bad solder connections on the main or convergence boards which will require someone with a sharp eye and savvy with a soldering iron. Most of the time, bad solder joints will be around the convergence amplifiers or in the high voltage section.

Tv turns on by itself

Hey Bubba,
If your TV is turning on by itself at about the same time each day you may have a timer activated, turn it it off, the TV's micro might need too be reset. To reset unplug your TV from the a/c outlet for at least 5 minutes.

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84

it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.

Try "hiding" the remote from the set so that the TV cannot "see" it. Hope this little trick helps...accordianman

Problem with tv turning off by itself.

I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
