    My Hitachi HDR253 Digital TV Recorder worked on the first day, froze on the second. Would not obey the remote or any buttons on the facia. Had to switch the power off to restart it - but lost all the timer info. It worked on the third day. This is the fourth day. I was scrolling through the TV guide and suddenly it froze again. I am taking it back on Monday but is this just a bad machine or are all Hitachi prone to this problem?

Describe the past - How did it fail? One day or acting up for a while? Could be a weak power supply - a bad capacitor on a power supply too. Look for popped up capacitor top inside.

First, try the unplug it, wait a few minutes, plug it in trick, several times. If that doesn't work try pressing the power button and slap the back left side of the set several times. Sometimes, this will shock the ballast and/or lamp into working.

Try checking the wires as well if its pinch or not and try to take out all cables from other devices from the back

SOURCE: hitachi 50v500 tv lamp light blinking no picture

I have one of these units, if the light is blinking and no picture as you have stated then you will need to replace the bulb in the unit. it is contained in the front of the unit behind the front panel on the right, you would remove the front panel after unplugging the unit, remove the single screw and pull out the box. replace it and then reverse the proces. the bulbs can be obtained for about $130.00 to $200.00 depending on where you get it from. Shop around.

This is an old post but maybe it will help others. You will have to take the back off of the TV. On the bottom you will see ribbon cables coming from the screen and connecting to 3 PC boards. Take the screws out that holds the cable down. Underneath you will see 4 resistors marked 100. All you have to do is re-solder the resistors and your vertical line will be gone. You need to be good at soldering or you could damage the ribbon. The only ones that you have to re-solder is the ones in line with the lines on the screen.

Direct Tv mini caused my Insignia tv to freeze and now tv wont turn back on

The direct mini did not freeze the tv. It's a coincidence. Your TV needs repair. Unfortunately insignia tvs have a reputation for problems like this.

Hitachi 2006 42HDS69 will not detect signal from dvd or xbox, how do I fix this?

Check the error codes on the digital board, which is visible through the grill in the back where the AC power entry is located. A trouble shooting guide, including the error codes, can be found in the service manual here:

In the case of my TV, I had to replace the main digital board. I was able to find one online for about $80 and replace it myself. Once you get the rear cover off the TV the digital board is easily accessible and took maybe 20 minutes to replace. Good luck!

So i took the back off of the hitachi 55hds69 and found that all led light are lighting up except the two red on the ends

Hello Eric
The main digital PWB should be suspected. Digital main P.W.B has five LED [Knight Rider] on board. After Power ON these LED will turn ON in sequence. It may take a few seconds for the sequence. After programme is loaded without error, all LED will turn OFF. Any LED should not light. If any LED remains lit, Main Digital PWB will be faulty. You can see these LEDs on the top right side of the digital module.
I've with me your TVs service manual [not the user manual], which contains all the details for service, including exploded view, schematic diagrams, printed circuit board,s etc. So many illustrations are there to help to service this TV. All adjustments, should be done after service. In short, it is a full service manual which help a person to repair this TV. All faults, that can occur to this TV, its repair work, number of components etc. I can't send this document to you by this window as this window does not allow me to upload any PDF files by it. The document comes to a capacity nearer to 16MB.
If you want to get it my Email, you have to buy one amoung my Hitachi Services advertised at FixYa. Without the permission of Fixya, I can't and shouldn't send any PDF documents to anybody. When you buy my service, Fixya will provide a link between us to communicate with each other, till the problem of your TV has been rectified. If you are interested, do the rest of proceedings. OK.

Hitachi Plasma TV model P50H401

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.
