Question about Hitachi 43FWX20B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Problem with picture it is very dark

We were watching tv and the picture became very dark. The image was still visable, however to see the picture I had to adjust the brightness to 100. The night time scenes are very dark and barely visable. We don't have a clue what the problem may be.

    We were also watching a program and the picture became darker. I also turned the brightness up to 100% but did not help much. The images are still good but cannot see them especially the darker sceens.

    Same problem - turning brightness up to 100 helped, but it has some side effects, and I don't feel like my quality is what is was. My fixit guy said that it may be a lamp getting weak, and that three lamps would have to be replaced at $250-$300 per lamp. I guess I'll live with it.

Just a guess,under the power button, inside the the flip[ down cover is a light dimmer,you can turn this on and off,in advanced settings under video,a flash light will trigger the sensor to see if it works the dimmer,if not it could be that circuit or your power supply needs work,I hope this helps!

What has gone wrong with the image on my tv?

The T con board is responsible for what you see and is responsible for bad, distorted images.

Sounds like the high voltage is marginal.
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212,
or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!
