    periodically the picture will freeze and sound will freeze for a few seconds. It doesn't always happen, but when it does it will happen over and over until I have to change to another channel. I have a cable box, but it has been changed again and again. Does anyone know if this is a problem with this model Hitachi?

TV freezes for a short period of time.


First a couple of questions:

1) What is the make and model please?

2) When the picture freezes, is it like a snapshot photo? or does the screen blank?

This sounds like an interruption in the digital data stream. If the picture remains on the screen, the "new" frame information is not being received nor processed. This can be as simple as a bad cable connection or noise on the digital information data lines.

Check to see if there is any pattern to when this occurs. For example, does it happen more frequently after the set has been on for a while? Try cooling down the set to see if temp effects the behavior.

Please update this and we'll work to resolve it.

Thanks,
Dan

Hitachi 50V500, no picture ,sounds for about 15 sec.then goes off


Hello,

I would try to re-seat the lamp. Pull the lamp out, check it to see if it may have gone bad again, then put it back in to make sure the contacts are connected. Before applying power, unplug the TV for 5 minute, and then plug in/turn it on.

Most lamps, if bad from the factory, will go out within 3 months of use. It does happen, and happens more often than you would think.

Try this, and see what happens. Good luck.

The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.


Linux and UNIX wget command help --dns-cache=off, Turn off caching of DNS lookups. Normally, Wget remembers the addresses it looked up from DNS so it doesn't have to repeatedly.
