Question about Hitachi 50UX26B/27K 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Unit will not stay on when cold.

When powering the TV on, with or without the remote, the TV comes on for a few seconds, then goes back off. After multiple times of this cycle, the TV will stay on and work fine. The number of attempts to get it to stay on seem to be increasing.

Re: Unit will not stay on when cold.

Well it sounds like a leaky capacitor in the power supply. Where?, is the question. There are alot of caps and it could be in many different places. Probably gonna need a pro to help find. Probably worth repair though under $200 i bet.

Wont stay on when cold

This sounds like a power regulator issue. Check the site for a "shrinking and expanding" video kit for your model. It also fixes the random off/on when the tv is cold

Tv won't stay on

Hello mrscarpenter,

This is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis, I would check CP120, CP140, CP150 to see if they are bad I suspect CP150 is the one that is bad. Its value is 2200uf 16VDC. It is located on the same board as the IHVT and is in between the Heat sink in the middle of the board.

I hope this helps,

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

Tv won't stay on

i have seen this before and it may be the front power button being stuck and when your remote turns it on the stuck button turns it back off again. I have an older mitsubishi that will not boot up right sometimes and i have to unplug it and plug it back in fot it to come on. I used to pick up broken tv and fix the power buton and resell them

This is a setting in the menu set-up somewhere or simply press the display button on the remote control unit.
