    I have the same problem with the same TV. Retuning will resolve it, but the same thing will happen again after a few hours. I've spoken (argued) with the 'TechGuys' at Dixons/currys who are adamant this is because I am not using an external area. They refuse to accept that a £12.99 Matsui free view box will work perfectly from the same aerial, or a £150 unbranded freeview TV that also works fine. If you wish to retune anyway, select Menu > 3rd option down > Auto Installation > Start > pin (0000) and it will take about 10 mins to scan for channels. I've done this a few times now and it will find 85 channels and display a great picture. Come back to it later and back to No Signal.

For the Item: Living Solutions Colossal 3-in-1 (606426)

Look in this link (it's the manual for the remote). It may help. Just copy the link to the address bar & download the file. It's a zip folder.

Press the input button on the tv itself to select the proper input you desire.

SOURCE: Green Plaid then Vertical Lines, Failure of hard controls, Analog Board?

You are absolutely correct, When anyone complains of vertical lines or bars, the next step is to see if it happens on only digital inputs ( digital board ) , only analog inputs ( analog board ) , or both ( DMD board ) .

Analog board can be purchased at ,

Cable in my area has switched to digital cable. I own a Hitachi HDTV about four years old. When I scan my channels it will only scan analog channels...the digital channels are an option but I don't...

Unfortunately, you need a set-top box. The Hitachi 65F59 has an ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog) tuner. It doesn't have a clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable) tuner.

There are a few DVR set-top boxes with QAM tuners that you can buy separately. (You will need to make sure a given model is compatible with your service. FIOS uses a different option on the Cable Card than other providers.) Alternatively, you can get a cable box from your company.

Retrevo has the manual for this Hitachi TV here: . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.

If you want OTA HD, you will need to determine the correct antenna for your area and the direction to the transmitters. (External antennas pick up more stations. In some areas amplification may be needed to get a good signal.) See or for searches on the appropriate antenna to get a signal and where to point the antenna. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the received channel list. You would need to set the TV signal input to Air and rescan for channels if you choose to go with the OTA signal.

I wish that I had better news for you.

The sound on my 95 hitachi bis screen tv works but there is just lines and snow on the screen, there is no color to the screen.

The tuner is bad, try directingthe signal to the Video input, and put the set in Video mode, you will also have a better picture,,use RCA cables from signal box to TV.

How to get to daignostic mode on hitachi 60v500a

Hi there,
Switch the TV to an RF input (like channel 3), preferably with a signal so the OSD is readable. Service mode will *usually* come up with other inputs as well, but an RF feed is a sure thing. After you're in service mode, you can try the Input button to see if the OSD is available on other inputs. I have found some options are off the screen in certain modes on certain sets and I must use other inputs. 

With the TV off, 

Press and hold the Input button on the front of the set, then simultaneously press and hold the power button. Continue this for 2 to 5 seconds then release both buttons. It's easy to hold the buttons too long or too short a time, which will cause the menu to not appear. Shut the set off and try it again.

Yes, it is HD TV ready but you must have a set top box from your cable or dish company that provides a Hi Def signal. The inputs must also be connected with the YRB cable. Only certain channels on my box are HD. The screen is so large that HD isn't nearly as impressive as some of the smaller models but it is still HD. I also have the 53FDX10B.

Was an auxillary input accidently selected? Try selecting inputs to see if this straightens it out. What model set do you have?
