Question about Hitachi 50V720 Television

2 Answers

My hitachi 50v720 bulb blew and the replacement doesn't fit

The bulb on the tv blew after 3 years of use which isn't bad.   I bought the Phillips replacement bulb based off the product code ux21517.  I took the housing apart and went to put in the other bulb, but the new bulb has a lip over each corner and now won't fit flush with the bulb housing.   The bulb seems to be the right size except for the lip.   I tried looking for other posts as I don't think I am the only person who would have this problem.  I also went on the internet and checked other sights to see if the website I bought the bulb from wasn't advertising the correct bulb, but they all look the same as my new bulb.    Did Hitachi just up and decide to change the bulb and housing for its tvs?  If so, do I need to buy the bulb and housing to make it work?  I don't want to keep ordering parts only to have the hassle of returning them.   Any help would be great.   
Thanks, Spencer

Go to this web address: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/hitachi/UX21517.php and read step 9.
It clearly says that with the new bulb you don't need 2 pieces. Check step 9 to which piece I am talking about. Once you remove that piece, your new bulb will fit.

I believe the lamp you need is the UX21516. not the 21517
I have a 50VF820 and this is the lamp for it.
By the way my unit just hit the 3 years and the lamp just blew as well.

Hitachi 42HDF52 powers on then shutsdown with a yellow light


Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.
