Question about Hitachi C29-F200 29" TV

Tv seems ok by static and now, no sound (or very faint)

Hi there, I have a hatachi tv (C2980FS). Unable to find much info on this tv on the net but it is having problems and i dont know if i should put it down.... It turns on ok and has on screen display fine, so can change channels and sound and get into menu etc, however, every channel is covered in snow and you can hadly see the picture at all (u can really juts make out outlines amounst the snow/static). Also, picture is black and white with some colour washing in every now and then, osd is colour. I have also tried using the av plugs and it also has the same snow. there is no sound as far as i can tell, however if i turn the volume right up, i hear faint soiunds but i cant make out if its static/audio circuit picking up random interference. Thinking it is relating to the AGC but need help as this is effecting av, not just tuning from what i can see. Any help much appreciated. I'm not a service man but have made some good repairs before to things... Cheers

The problem you're describing sounds like a tuner problem. BUT you say that you have the same problem with A-V input too. That's weird!!! Possibly the electronic TV-AV switching circuit is messed up and stuck in the TV (tuner) position. If this is the case you DO have a tuner problem and a switching problem too.

Thanks, I think you are correct, av seems to show same kind of static (you can see the same faint picture as on tv). will start looking into tuner and see if i can get that going first before looking at the av switching area. Thanks for your help.

Fuse blows off near on/of switch

Fuse keeps blowing indicated that you have a short on the power supply section. This can't be fix by replacing the fuse alone. For more info click the link for more info.
You can isolate the trouble if you have a knowledge in electronics and have tools and test instruments or else look for a qualified technician to troubleshoot the power supply. This is quite fixable.
Hope it may help you.
Give a thumbs up if you find it useful.

I can hear the tv but cant see it

Video circuit problem.

Check whether you get a filament glow in the picture tube neck. It will be faint. If OK,

Just place your hand near the front of your screen, when TV is on. If EHT is generated you will feel the static effect on face plate on the glass. Your hairs will drawn towards the picture tube. No EHT, no such effect will be there. Refer trouble shooting procedures.

Faint horizontal lines in picture

This is usually caused by a problem in the Horizontal Output section, around the Horizontal Output transformer usually a capacitor or diode going or gone faulty... the line you see are the Horizontal "Retrace" lines that are useually "Hidden" when the circuit is OK..

Hitachi Multisystem TV model # C2980FS ..not powering on

First off you gotta tell us whats the right model and make as you have two listed here and both of these flybacks are avail. trough The parts are not listed online but get the toll free # or leave a message for them to get back to you. Now A flyback is not a user replaceable part for starters. It is soldered in and theres very high voltage inside these sets even after they are unplugged, and its not adviseable to replace a hi-voltage part in a set, unless you know the issues involved with replacing such parts. Good Luck
