Question about Hitachi 60UX58B 60" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

No Power I was watching tv last night and heard a "pop" (like a cap gun) and the tv went dead, nothing.... I have 120v at the board where the power cord connects, and the fuse is not blown. Nothing looks bad, no burns, no burn smell, nothing. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem and what could be the cause????

    Found out that the red LED labled "Potection LED" is blinking. So now I'm wondering if there is another fuse that I'm not seeing???

Your set is going into high voltage shut down. Might have been the high voltage transformer that has gone bad.

    On he board to the right with the back off there is the high voltage transformer that is black in color and has 3 red wires that isert into it with grey colored rubber caps. The transformer isn't the easiest to replace and note that in normal operation the transformer produces a 30,000 volt charge on those red wires and anyone of the CRT's can hold a decent charge so a shock hazzard is present.

Please dont even be foolish and try to fix this thing yourself. DEATH BY HIGH VOLTAGE IS REALLY UGLY. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU CAN FIX A TV IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I heard two popping sounds and now my television will not power on.

A popping sound as you describe sounds as if your tv blew a couple capicators on the main control board. More than likely , you are needing to aquire a new main circuit board.
