Question about Hitachi 46GX01B 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV will not turn off with remote or manually

I have a Hitachi 46" Rear Projection TV, Model #46F500A, a little over 2 years old.

TV just started not being able to turn off with the remote or manually pushing the push on the front of the TV. When I try and turn off with remote or manually, TV goes to Magic Focus. Magic Focus does its thing and then the TV returns to the TV program--will not turn off.

That means that you either need to buy a replacement remote (or use an universal remote) , or you need to replace the TV IR sensor, that is a small board located inside tv.

Projection TV not working


The Convergence IC's have went out. This is normal for this TV after about 5 years or so. You will need 2 sanyo STK392-150 IC chips, and about 6 resistors to fix. The cost is about 50 US dollars if you do it yourself. If you are not good at soldering, don't try it. However if you are, and can read an ohmeter it will be no problem

46" Rear Projection Hitachi - Green / Yellowish Screen


daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.

After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.

That's it. Seriously.
