Black screen 53in Hitachi 53UDX10B

My tv just went all black today no problems leading up to it. It is 7 years old - I wonder the probability of it being worth fixing vs buying a plasma.

Re: black screen 53in Hitachi 53UDX10B

At seven years old, thats a toss up, because most likely you will be nickle and diming the set from here on in. In my opinion, get a new set. Good Luck

I hae a Hitachi 53in, widescreen, on the screen it looks like the colors are seperating. Would this be the lenses, if so how do I recalibrate them? Thanks, Drew

That would be the convergence. This usually can be adjusted either through a menu or by adjusting controls inside the set. To do this properly, you need a signal generator to create a grid on the screen so the three colors are aligned with each other.

Picture went out but still have sound?

possibly the vertical output IC is defective. I would try resoldering it first as most times that will correct the problem.

Steve, easier and safer to remove back panels, remove bottom back cover then remove top back cover, be advised the top cover has a giant mirror on the inside so it will be heavy and easy to break, use 2 people to remove it, this way you can get at the inside and clean the mirror at the same time, hope this helps and Happy New Year, BMW Rider
