Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Hitachi 60V500A Tv changes inputs by itself

I have a Hitachi 60V500A, that I bought a couple of years ago. A couple of days ago the menu just started popping up on the screen by itself. I could hit exit, and it would go away, but it started coming back very frequently. I unplugged the tv for a full day, and then tried again, but it is still doing it. Now to make matters even worse, the remote does not work, and every button on the tv, when you push it, just changes the input. It is also just randomly changing inputs on it's own. I have searched all over the net, and found no help. I hope someone can help me here. Thanks Steve

Take the batteries out of the remote first and make sure none of the buttons are sticking. Good Luck

Plaid Effect on any input even the system menu

There is a circuit board at the top in the back called the t-con board. Check that the connectors are in snuggly. Also check connections on the main board from t-con board.

Rastor needs adjustment on 60v500a

Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
1. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
2. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
3. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
4. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
5. Execute the Memory Initialize operation after the adjustment values have been written on a sheet of paper. Highlight “MEMORY INTI”, arrow to the right and hold the button to the right (approx 5 sec.) until a check mark appears in the box. This activates the Memory Initialization.
6. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.
7. Write back the adjustment values from your notes to their respective adjustment parameters in the adjustment mode. (In other words, set the Data Values back to the the Data values written down before the Memory Initialization procedure). NOTE: Make sure the SELECT Button is pressed on remote after every change to the values. Failure to do so will result in the data values not being changed.
8. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.
9. Turn the set off-on and Confirm the picture remains in a good condition.
