Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light

I've had my Hitachi 60V500 60 in. Rear Projection HDTV for 2 years and 1 year ago it started to act up. Sometimes it makes a buzzing noise and the three led lights on front flash for about a minute and then the red lamp led turns on and the tv wont turn on. It always does this problem if i have been watching it and then try to turn it back on within a few hours.I know the lamp led is saying it is the lamp, but would it be that if it does it when ever it wants?

The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.

Have a 2005 Sony Hdtv LCD Projection, 60 in., Model # E60A20. Has started to turn itself off and then will come back on after a few seconds. It will do this about three times while watching one program. ...

Lamp is going to end of its life and causing this problem. Its time to replace lamp in tv, rest of tv is just fine.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
