Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Hitachi 55" rear projection television but it has no picture.

This TV has performed great for many years. Just the other day I turned it on and there was sound but no picture. However the PIP works. What's wrong?

    The last time it was used was 25 Nov and it was working properly but when it was used again just a couple of days ago that's when the problem was noticed. The only thing that's hooked up is the cable box which is wireless ATT Uverse receiver. I will verify the model number when I get home. Could it possibly be a burned out lamp?

    Depends on model number if it uses a lamp or picture tubes.

    It has 3 picture tubes---check if using cable direct to set you are on right connection, set may have 2 active coax fittings---also connect a DVD to one of the rear inputs to see if that operates--what is used for signal and how are you (where) connected to the set?

    I'm at the office right now but it has always been connected in the same way and it was working fine uo until two days ago. There is are no other external devices connected but I can connect a dvd player when I get home and verify

If you get a picture via PIP the set is working, check the usual suspects: on right input or tuner, does a DVD hooked to rear input work, rule out cable or sat box.

It would also be helpful to know the model number,

    Model # is 57UWX20B. Now there is no PIP. All the onscreen menus work

    I checked the owners manual and there is no troubleshooting precedure for "sound but no picture"

Depends on how old it is and what the model number is. Do you think all TV's are the same man? No they are not.

It is the lamp cover. There is a switch behind it and the post on the cover will slip off the switch. If this switch is not depressed, the tv will go off. No lamp light flashing or anything
