Question about Hitachi 42HDT50 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 42HDT50; no picture, not sound.

I am convinced the dish signal is not coming out of the AVC. I know it is OK going in to the unit, because I can switch the signal cable to a nearby small flat screen TV and it works fine.
When the AVC is switched on, it shows the blue light. When I switch on the montor: Nothing. The monitor's green light comes on and I can hear a relay come up, but nothing happens.
I strongly suspect the AVC is receiving the signal, but not putting it out to the monitor.

Just unplug the external wires from the unit and also from the main power outlet for two minutes and chevck out again as it could be the cause of loose connection somewhere.

My Hitachi 42hdt50 turned off while watching it and will not turn on. The standbye light on the TV will not come on at all.

Open up the tv then go to where the on switch is on the bottom of the tv. After that make sure you have the metal back off and look on the circuit board near the power plug socket there should be a fuse cylindrical one. Just have to replace it same thing happened to my 42hdt50 guy i am friends with told me i needed a new one. So, thats what it might be if not then I do not know.
