Hitachi Rear Projection TV Flickers Red

Just recently our TV, conveniently a couple weeks after our 1 year warranty expired, has a predominately red hue across the screen that flashes. When the screen is black you can see the red flashing really easy. We looked inside of the TV and we can see the red bulb flickering. Does that mean the bulb needs to be replaced and if so does anyone know how much and where to purchase them? Thanks Aimee

Re: Hitachi Rear Projection TV Flickers Red

No, this could mean a loose connection on crt board(red of course) Look also and check to see if lines going to board are connected correctly. If nothing, then there could be something trying to short itself out on crt board. look for burnt resistors and bad capacitors.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...

TV Flickers up and down and screen is shifted to the right w/ red color dominating the screen.

the last hitachi that had this problem i fixed it bad finding bad solder conenctions throughout the board that the convergance ic's are on, also i foind some on the two main board in my repair. hopefully resoldering the convergance foard will fix the jitter or jumping around problem. if the picture is too red you can also try turning down the screen control slightly. good luck
