Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Dark Blue Screen

I was watching tv and noticed the picture was getting darker. Now it is very dark and very blue. I checked all the wires to make sure nothing came loose and then just hooked up basic cable directly to the tv and have the same thing. TV has a built in DVD player, and screen is dark and blue so I'm sure its the TV, not any component wires. Any ideas?

Re: Dark Blue Screen

You might've done this already, but first I would try the "Magic Focus" The button can be found all the way to the left of the buttons panel on the tv itself. If that has no effect, try playing around with the settings within the tv. Click menu on the remote and see what happens when you try settings like color, balance, and contrast. Report back.

Hi, Did the TV go darker gradually or did it happen all of a sudden? Sounds like the tube went!

Check resistors in the small PCB connected to picture tube. Check picture tube grid voltages. Check brightness control swing on the IC out put. Note down the IC no and search in the Google for pin configuration.

If you promise not to touch the wrong thing, you can adjust the screen and focus knobs on the high-voltage transformer (what we call the flyback). Do you see the big red wire going to the CRT tube? That is the anode lead of the high voltage (around 25,000 volts). The thing that it goes to on the circuit board has 2 little knobs coming out the back of it. Try adjusting those (use a tool with insulated handle if you please) to increase the brightness and improve the focus. When the screen adjustment is all the way up and it is still too dark - then its time for a new TV.
