My hitachi Model recent quit working . No picture or sound. Red light does not come on. Sounds as if power supply went out but really not sure how to check. please advise. Thanks

So you can go to walmart buy a 50" TV for about $500. A power board for your old TV gonna run about $150 and the repairman prolly charge another $150 so why try fix the old one? TVs are too cheap to buy now so no reason fix an old ghost screen.

There is not a picture only sound while watching the tv a red light came on the front then the picture went off

not much i can walk u through on that one but that something in the conveyance circuit has failed and the red like is probably a fault code of some kind and u will have to find a repairman to fix it

try unpluging the set 4 a few and see if it resets

My screen went blank but the sound works fine. We were watching TV when the screen went out. The sound stayed on. We still get sound but no picture. Is this worth fixing? If so what is the best way to go...

all in one day my screen started by showing a u look at top and bottom. all three colors kind of separated from each other and therefore made shadows on all the writing and double and triple vision on people and images. then it drawed in from sides and showed some black. then it popped in the back and no picture. the sound then came back on with no picture. so i shut it off and unplugged it. what do i have to get to fix this? thank you, Robert Hopkins

The electricity went off today for just a second and caused the tv to go off. when we turn the tv back on, we had no sound. the picture is fine. can you tell me what might be the problem?

May be the IC related to sound is damaged. It is very cheap work. Call teh mechanic and tel him that you have to change the sound IC. He ll fix it very cheaply. Hope this helps. Rate this!!

I have sound and no picture. Red light on in front of tv indicating lamp. Can be fixed w/o repairman?

Yes the Lamp can fail within that time frame. Much of it depends on how many hours the set is running. Most Lamps have a 3000 to 5000 hrs of life. But with any Halogen style Lamp, this is not written in stone.
Hope this helps,

Sound but no picture

The first thing to check is the connections to your source. They can easily become loose and/or corroded over time.

No picture just sound

Your projection tubes are messed up. It's a very expensive fix, just get a working TV off craigslist with a smashed screen and reuse your screen itself (usually 100-200$) or just toss the TV and upgrade to an LCD

Mitsubishi 57" HDTV - has sound and timer light flashes

I had the same problem and my local repair guy soldered a defective sensor so that it goes around that problem. I also had to buy a new bulb. Now my picture is "cloudy" and the repairman has no idea why. I am waiting for them to call back on it.
