Question about Hitachi 60CX29B TV
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?
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.
