No picture on my hitachi

Hi, I received a new bulb it appears to be the correct bulb but didn't fit so I put the old bulb back all I have is a red light. Is it because I wasn't careful with the old bulb? I wasn't rough or anything. The new bulb has feet on it and didn't fit in like the old bulb. But the web site showed it as the right one. Should I try again to use it? 60vs810 Hitachi

SOURCE: Picture intermittently goes dim.

How many hours on the lamp timer?  If 10,000 or more the lamp is approaching end of life and should be replaced.  Lamp will dim when approaching end of life rather than just go out.

SOURCE: hitachi 53fdx20b picture is red

This is a set first made in 2002. I have seen a few of them with too much red.

Most likely what is wrong is the RED SCREEN CONTROL. It is located behind the front grill assembly at the front of the set. Screws usually secure it from the back on either side and then it pulls off--held by pegs usually.

Behind it is an inspection plate with several screws. Behind that is a BLACK block about 3 inches square with six controls(everything is black) One row of three will be marked FOCUS--stay away from those. The other row will be marked SCREEN.

With a flashlight you will have to look closely at the two rows of controls--they will have r,g,b marked next to them. (red, green, blue)

If you go to a Black and white program and the background is redish etc--take the set to a unused Video input2_bing.gif and after you locate the RED SCREEN CONTROL turn it slowly (less than 1/8 of a turn) to the left---the idea is to adjust just until the screen does not show red---on a blank input it should be black.

Double check it on a Black and White program and then if it was the problem the color should now be normal.

These sets did have some problems with that Screen /Focus block going bad--the entire block costs under 25 dollars and all the wires on the back of it plug in; if you have to keep adjusting it over a short period of time replace it or live with it.

I do this here for free so if this has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for Free.

You must locate your bulb (usually from the front lower cover of your tv). Some tvs the bulbs are reached from the back. Bulb replacement is about a 30 min job (if you're fast at taking screws out).

Here is a video of putting your NEW bulb in the OLD housing:

Just locate your old bulb, watch the video and you'll be running again in no time!

Brought LED back light the wires black,red,yellow, the old back light on my bike as two bulbs with six wires 2 x red 2 x blue 2 x black n yellow.three too each bulb when i connect my new light too bike...

Hi, firstly dont think for a miniute that the black wire on your new light is the earth, using the battery as a power source put one of the wires to earth and the other to live, as the led light will only work if the power is conected to the rite pole it is important to establish wich of the new wires is earth, you may have to swap them around to get the correct order, and then conect each of the other wires to the batt poss to check the lite works,when you are happy you have the correct order you can fit it to the bike, on the kawasaki blk and yellow is earth , although you have 6wires they are only 3wires in the loom wich double up to 6 for the 2 bulbs in the lite unit, you can leave 1 of eah colour disconected,

My turn flasher stopped working afta having my 96 accord just over 9 years, I've bought a new one , but doesn't fit....I don't know what I have to get for it to fit properly!!! =c plz help! I'm a female...

What exactly did you buy a new one of...the light bulb? The light bulb is presumably the first thing to check when the flasher stops working. So drive yourself to a Hinda service place, take the flasher light bulb out, walk into the parts dept with the bulb and tell them you need a new one (and show them)...that way you know you get the correct on. When you get the new one, make sure it matches the one you removed. Go back to car, and replace the old one with the new on. If you take the bulb out and check it and it appears that it isn't blown, then check to see if your car has a fuse that is specifically for the blinker on the side that isn't working. (your manual should have a diagram of your fuse box...what fuse is where and what the fuse operates, as should the inside of your fuse box cover).

First step is to unplug the 120 vac power for a few minutes to clear any corrupted data that may be present in the controller circuits.

If a "power" reset doesn't help and the lamp or bulb is installed correctly, you most likely have a failed replacement bulb. The symptoms are all standard indications of a failed bulb.

Reduced lamp life can be caused by:
  1. Lightning and other 120 vac power bumps.
  2. Collisions with vacuum cleaners or other incidental impacts while the TV bulb is operating.
  3. Starting the TV without a complete cool down. Bulb will consume a small amount of mercury with each start. Excessive consumption occurs when bulb is "Hot" and turned on.
  4. Wrong bulb installed as replacement.(Philips original replaced with Osram or El Cheapo)
  5. Poor quality or damaged bulb installed as replacement.
  6. Bulb damaged during replacement
  7. Bulb installed incorrectly at replacement.
Almost all Hitachi 55vs69 "No Picture" failures are related to the bulb.

Many of our service events are with customers that purchased El Cheapo bulbs from "shopping cart" websites or picked up a bulb from a small "local" TV shop. Many small shops stock of 3 or 4 bulbs and try to substitute or cross reference to fit more than 200 models of TVs from 7 different manufacturers. If a premature bulb failure occurs, they have the opportunity to sell you some expensive service.

I have a 50vs810 dlp. The blue and red lights flash in sequence when I turn it on.When they stop flashing the red light for the lamp is on. The yv has no volume and no picture. Is it just the bulb or does...

More than likely, it is the bulb. My hitachi 50v715 would come on(light up and show picture) 3 to 30 sec's with out the lamp indictor even lighting up. Put a new bulb in and works great. So I would try a new bulb. Look in your manual for the bulb number. Buy an original hitachi bulb they last a little longer.

This is an ATC323H Chassis. The DM module could be the problem. Here is a factory Troubleshooting guide to confirm the correct operation of all of the Light Engine circuits. Be careful on this one because there is 20,000 volts present to fire the Lamp. You should call a good TV Tech in my opinion.
