Question about Hitachi 60CX29B TV

1 Answer

Power but no sound or picture alot of the time

I have a 60" Hitachi Tv. It's 10 years old. I've been having problems for about 6 months. First it started that the picture & sound would come on for awhile & then shut off. Intermittantly, the picture & sound would come on & go off-at first it nly happened here & there. The power stays on all this time. Now, it has continuously gotten worse....sometimes the Tv won't come on for hours even tho' the power is on. It used to help by turning it on & off again & again, but that doesn't seem to make much difference now.I have comcast & go thru the VCR. I tried bypassing the VCR & also tried playing a tape thru the VCR during the blackouts. The VCR tape wouldn't show up(or the sound) on the screen either. The quality of the picture varies. Alot of times it has a bunch of horizontal lines especially right after it comes on...sometimes it is pretty good. Should I try to get a repairman in or will it cost too much? Is it worth it or should I just buy a new one?

Re: Power but no sound or picture alot of the time

The fault you are describing sounds like what we in the trade call dry joints, basically where components are soldered into the circuit boards in manufacturing, the joints become brittle and crack thus forming a poor connection which can vary with heat. well worth repair may need a couple of electrolytics aswell but i could do the job myself safely for under £100.

TV Rarely Starts

Check all the solder terminal at its main power regulator section circuit. Any loose solder terminal can poise this type of problem. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder. If you wish to get more details, check this site.

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.

There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

Hitachi 32 No Picture or sound

if you are hearing a click and electrical statics when you try to turn it ON, the flyback of the tv is busted there are alot of reasons for that problem lighting is one so dont leave the cable screwed in if ever youre going out for a long time. you can have it replaced by a technician ( flyback). but it would cost you. and im not sure if you can find an orginal flyback considering its 10years old. there are replacement flybacks but quality would not be as good as the original one.

Hello, You have a high voltage section problem I would not suggest fixing this set on your own. You will need to take this set to the shop. Because there are no user repairable parts inside of the set.
