Question about Hitachi 43F300 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

4:3 ratio not offered

Up until a few days ago I was able to watch both 4:3 and 16:9 adn now 4:3 is not available. Consequently, everyone's head is now chopped off. 16:9 is not my preferred view and zoom is even worse. Any suggestions as to how to return it to 4:3?

Re: 4:3 ratio not offered

Try having the set on as it is now and changing the channel up one and then back down using the TV remote. this will cause the picture to go out and then should come back on 4:3

Tv goes off after about 5 seconds

Bulb replacement is a good try, I would also have them come out to look at the set again as I am sure there is some kind of warranty on the parts.

I have the same problem with the green verticle lines.

most older projectors are going to be harder to find parts, soon the flat screen price will drop and everyone will be able to afford them and soon projector will be absolete just like the old computers monitor now its all flat screen, we went from 8 tracks to CD and now to memories chips. that person you spoke to may have a bad day who knows. If you need help getting the parts and have dificulty locating one and you already know the problems and have the part number, you can contact your local TV repair shop and they will more access to getting those parts, keep in mind they do those all day long and they charge you a bit more but it sure beat gitting all the head ace locating those parts and getting the run around on the phone..Good luck.

Your main boards are bad. The FMT, DM, & Power Supply. They are no longer available, You have to have the chasis rebuilt. Mitsubishi is rebuilding these chasis. You have to pull it without any cut wires & ship to Georgia.

Did you get your TV fixed?

EVERYONE CALL SONY- SONY HAS EXTENDED ALL OF OUR WARRANTIES. i have this same problem with my 60" wega. i called sony and they explained to me that the problem was the optical light box. it cost a grip to fix even for instead of fixing the problem they offered me the best true flats they had at way less than the actually price. i bought a 46" bravia for less than 550 including tax. i still have my 60" but until i get it fixed on my own this 46" will definitely do. i hope this helps you all
