Question about Hitachi 50GX49B 50" Rear Projection Television
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Believe the problem is in the power suppy. Model: Hitachi CU 5002k 50" 3 tube projection. No picture, raster or sound. In a dark room there is no lights or filiment glow. Unfortunately no burned out parts, smoke or sparks either. I have no scope. Have VTOM. Output from the Sub Power Supply is, and should be, 122 VAC (Point AD). Imput to the Power Deflection Circuit (Point AD) 122 VAC. Then goes to a Diode/Capacitor Bridge Circuit and emerges at a fuse at 76 VDC. It then goes thru two capacitors to a test point (30). At test point 30 the voltage should be 129 VDC and is 76VDC None of the diodes on heat sinks are (temperture) hot or even warm. Haven't preceeded on to the flyback transformer because it is much further down the line. SUMMARY: I suspect all the parts in the circuit. In particular the bridge rectifier and a switching transitor. I don't expect a definative answer, but would like your thinking on a solution to this problem (Am I looking in the right place?) Going to a TV repair shop with this older set (1992) is not an option and I do have limited electronic knowledge; altho this knowledge was gain on tube sets...A long time ago! Your imput would be sincerely appreciated.
Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

My tv has stopped working for a week now, just turned off, have no sound or picture.
Have tried to turn off for a bit and then tried to turn back on, still the same.
there was no loud sound from tv. to think it was the bulb and the picture looked great till just went blank, and freinds say they think it's fuse. Was wondering if you you can let me know what
I can do ASAP. Thx so much.

TV always has high voltage shock risk while repair. As you said you are not familiar with TV repair so better to handle repair person this issue.

If you can solder you can Fix It STK ICs they are big black ICs will have part number on them example STK392-110 replace Both and these resistors RK42 3.3ohms RK46 1.8 RK5 2.7 RK54 1.5 RK58 3.9 RK60 2.2ohms upgrade to STK392-150s better ICs
