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

1 Answer

Hitachi-picture goes out but can still have sound

My Hiitachi 60 inch will work occasionally. While watching it the picture will go out but you can still hear the sound. If I turn it off for a while and turn it back on, it will come back on as normal. Sometimes it won't happen for days and sometimes the picture will go out a half hour after you turn it back please. What can I check or do regarding this issue. It is about 6 yrs old and never had a problem with it before.

Re: hitachi-picture goes out but can still have sound

If it is a Hitachi 60V500 LCD projection TV, then I would suspect the lamp being the problem.

Hitachi 60 inch projection has a blue ring overlapping the screen and colors are off on it any idea how to fix?

Have you checked the convergence? Typically when this happens, the TV has been moved, or bumped hard, and things have gotten out of alignment. Occasionally, it'll happen because of a power outage or flicker.

Convergence should be found in the setup or video menu.

Tv comes on and then after a while the picture goes down to this scrunched up color lines in the middle of the set and sound goes off also. It is a Hitachi 60 inch big screen 1997 model

Sounds like you have broken solde joints on the vertical/horizontal board. I have a tip at which explains the problem and how to fix it. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

42 inch hitachi plasma

the more the tv remains on the picture gets out of focus mainly in the midle of screen. Sure sounds like tv needs some light engine repair or replacement.

TV wont stay on

Sounds like a short somewhere in there. I see old pre-HD big screen sets going for well under $200 on my local craigslist, so look there for a good replacement, because the repair will cost more.

Or fork over about $500 for a good used HD projection set.
