Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black Screen My 1 year old son was recently banging the buttons on the front of the TV including the power button. By the time I got off the couch to get him the TV was off. I hit the power button to turn the TV back on. The red light on the front of the TV came on but the screen stayed black. Does anybody have an idea what I can do if anything? Thanks

also can you tell be how many times does the stand by light blink. that would help us to decode the problem in your TV

Just to reset first before proceed another procedure;

Resetting the TV
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 4 - 6 hours.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope it may help you;

The best and the only solution to fix this problem is to call a tech and get it serviced or if it is still under warranty just get it replaced.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound

I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

On and off

That hapened to me once and the solution that worked for me was unpluging the TV for about 5 minutes and pluging it back in, you may just need a new remote though.

Big black box on screen

It has something to do with the closed captioning. He must have hit the closed caption button on your remote. You need to either turn the closed caption off or make another selection under closed captioning like cc1 cc2. Just keep making selections until the box goes away.

I read it online that this is a very simple problem. It needs highvoltage splitter. I tried to open the front panel to see where the splitter is. However, I need some hint as to how to open the front panel. Good luck. Kiran
