Question about Hitachi 42HDF52 Television

1 Answer

Hitachi Plasma will not remember what input to watch tv on

Ok this is a Hitachi 42hdf52 plasma tv purchased around August of 2005. When you turn the tv off with the remote control or on the front panel and leave it off for over about 5 minutes and then turn the tv back on.........it loses its input selection and you must push the input button several times to set it back to where it was. The default seting is composite video input.......well thats just the one I dont use. So everytime I want to watch tv I turn the tv on and then have to push the input selection button 4 times to select the right input to watch tv. The Directv box is never unplugged or turned off and the tv is always plugged in and turned off by remote control. I use a red,blue,green cables to connect between the directv and the tv......directly.

Hitachi 42HDF52 powers on then shutsdown with a yellow light


Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years
