Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I have a Hitachi Ultravision LCD tv and it has started turning itself off after e few minutes. The only light blinking when it cuts off is the power light then after a little while it turns itself back on. Can you tell me what may be the problem and will it be expensive to fix?
I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.
Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.
Capacitors are very inexpensive but require some soldering skills to repair.
Hope this helps
