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

Component inputs not working on hitachi ultrascan tv

There have been some resets for Hitachi sets for several years, from using a jumper wire to touch two terminals with set on to ones in hidden Tech menu. If one I did not know I would use the model number to Google several sites looking for a reset---one some years ago brand new and just delivered had two inputs with nothing and a third with no sound--reset cured it and lots of other sets have a hard reset putting all settings back to factory.

Get the model number and search and do not forget to look on the Hitachi site as well.

What is the AV Net code for a PS3? Will it connect with my Hitachi 60V500A to Input 2 if I have the proper code?

AV Net is for controlling devices with your Hitachi remote. Your PS3 does not use standard IR or RF technologies for it's control, and uses Bluetooth instead.There is a Logitech Harmony adapter that will allow Harmony remotes to control the PS3 however it won't work with AV Net.

Your PS3 should hook up to your TV via Input 2 with no codes needed.

Change from TV mode to AV mode for a Hitachi C28W4110SN

There should be buttons somewhere on the TV itself to switch input modes. Look around where the power button is located and see if there is a menu button you can access. Then use channel up/down and volume up/down to scroll thru modes to find input

Hope this helps

How to get to daignostic mode on hitachi 60v500a

Hi there,
Switch the TV to an RF input (like channel 3), preferably with a signal so the OSD is readable. Service mode will *usually* come up with other inputs as well, but an RF feed is a sure thing. After you're in service mode, you can try the Input button to see if the OSD is available on other inputs. I have found some options are off the screen in certain modes on certain sets and I must use other inputs. 

With the TV off, 

Press and hold the Input button on the front of the set, then simultaneously press and hold the power button. Continue this for 2 to 5 seconds then release both buttons. It's easy to hold the buttons too long or too short a time, which will cause the menu to not appear. Shut the set off and try it again.

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.
