Hitachi 60V710 shuts off after 2 min

My Hitachi turns on for approx 2 min. it then shuts itself off, and then back on automatically only to shut off again after 2 min. the lamp was just replaced about a month ago. I'm assuming its a power supply issue.

Not an expert, but; 2 minutes is roughly the time it takes for something to go over temp.


So id be looking for an unplugged fan connector or similar issue. Its an odd problem where I suspect the bulb or sensor for the unit is reaching an over temperature situation as its unusual to start perform as expected then shut down. A sensor may have been damaged for one the improper bulb has been used. The tolerances for these devices are very fine, they normally shut down to prevent further damage like a baked lcd matrix etc.


If you are game to pull it apart or even to check it, then check for fan start at the time when it powers off, if it doesnt then thats a reasonble logical step for it powering off. So remove cover and check for fan being plugged in. Next step look around the bulb area for a small resistor shaped item that could be the temp sensor bent outta shape. Best of luck. :o)

My Hitachi t.v. goes off and back on at random it will not stay on for more than 3 mins without turning off then back on. What should I do??


I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.



Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional

2. Open your TV and find PSB. Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


I have a tip/tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It's called: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.


Hope this helps and Good luck.

I have a 60 in hitachi ultravision projection tv. lamo light blinking so I replaced the bulb and it still blinks,,


Hi,did you close the door cover?Make sure itsproperly shut other wise it won't tv light up. Reset the lamp
timer? you can do this by unpluging the set for 5 min
and plug it back(works for most sets). Was the fan
running ok? You can clean it w an air pressure
can. If you heard clicking or like wanting to turn on the problem could be with the board that powers the lamp.The board it's called the ballast.If its not able
to provide the power to the lamp it will not turn it on
and the red light will blink.Also did you get the original Philips lamp if you got a generic that
could be your problem.God Bless you!

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.
