Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Darker picture I have a 57 inch Hitachi Projection tv Model 57TWX20B 6 years old. I noticed the picture got darker and darker. I changed the picture mode to Sports and it got slightly better. But I had to adjust the brightness to a 100% to make it look better but it is still not the way it should be. I have had it serviced for 5 years and vever had this problem. Now that the service plan has ran out I get a problem - Go fiqure

    Yes I have almost the same problem. I was watching in the morning and the picture was fine. My wife and I left to do a little shopping and came back about 4 or 5 hours later, I turned on the tv and noticed that any dark colors or black was really dark. If there was a seen at night you could bearly make out what was going on. its not getting any worse but it doesn't get any better either.

Clean the lenes inside of the TV and the mirror and screen (a little dust build up on these three things adds up quick!) also if you smoke that can build up too! these tvs have too be cleaned inside

How to fix fix my Hitachi Projection TV - model # 61WX01W, got darker and darker and now all dark. Has 3 pictures tubes. How do I fix the problem?


Likely what you have is the three tubes each have a filament--not unlike a light bulb-----someone would have to trace the filament voltage (usually comes from power supply) from source to the three tubes---filament connects to each tube with two connections and is usually 6.3 volts.

How to fix my hitachi 65 tv


If you are saying that the picture is getting darker and you have already tried to adjust the picture through the menu feature on your TV then it is more than likely the cooling fluid around the CRT tubes. Over time the fluid in these tubes gets cloudy and causes your TVs picture to become dull and distorts the color. You can google tv repair kits .com and I believe they will have a kit for your model.

The picture seems to be getting darker. Its not as bright and sharp as it used to be. Its about 9 years old but has not been used very much. Might it need a new bulb or something? 57HX81 Proj TV Color...


simple: remove back cover and locate the three large black lens you will see top and dead center, clean them with either a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner----they are the light source for your picture and should be cleaned once a year---as they get dusty the picture gets darker and duller looking.\\

1 Answer

Screen getting dark


If you have never changed the lamp this is more than likely the issue, as the tv ages the lamp looses brightness. Most lamps are rated for 3000-5000 hrs of use. Replace the lamp assembly part # UX21514 and you will notice a much brighter picture. You do not mention if the tv plays the right colors on the entire screen. These have had light engine issues.
Good luck with it

HITACHI BIGSCREEN TV MDL 57TWX20B APPROX 4-5 YEARS OLD...TV SHUT DOWN WHILE WATCHING AND WON'T POWER BACK UP


This can be one of two problems. 1: convergence output ic's need to be replaced. 2: The problem is in the power supply, most likely a power diode.

Both problems you will need to take it two a repair shop.

Hitachi 57f710s


Sounds like a video board problem. May also be the convergence board. You might get some freeze spray ( a component cooler that comes in a spray can ) and while the set is on, spray the boards and see if the problem temperarly corrects. This is to isolate the problem. Once the problem is isolated, you can change the bad component. Good Luck
