Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Lost the digital TV viewing

Hi, I have a Hitachi ''Color Plasma Television'' (reading off the guide) that is the model 42PD960DTA.

It's always worked fine, I've had my HD channels all there, but...

ust recently, I noticed that the DTT came up with the message ''Database is empty, press menu for installation''

Now I did find that in the book. I came down to restore defaults thinking I could get my HD channels back but it didn't work. I ended up just getting normal analogue channels after then doing an auto scan


Now I've tried and tried to get the digital TV back but there really is no clear direction in the book. I mean it says to do one thing but the option isn't even available...what should I do?

There's a button stating DTT/TV and I didn't realise that they were 2 options. That's that. I had a stupid moment!!

Hitachi 2006 42HDS69 will not detect signal from dvd or xbox, how do I fix this?


Check the error codes on the digital board, which is visible through the grill in the back where the AC power entry is located. A trouble shooting guide, including the error codes, can be found in the service manual here: http://elektrotanya.com/hitachi_42hdx99_42hdt79_42hds69_chassis_dw2-u.pdf/download.html

In the case of my TV, I had to replace the main digital board. I was able to find one online for about $80 and replace it myself. Once you get the rear cover off the TV the digital board is easily accessible and took maybe 20 minutes to replace. Good luck!

Black vertical strip on Hitachi plasma


seems like a lose ground issue from the vertical scan board which usually causes this problem. A scan board repair or replacement should fix this intermittent problem.....take it too your local repair shop before this problems spreads and the tv totally shuts down....

Black line on plasma tv


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

The color is low


If this is a 50V500 record the I2c buss settings then "Memory Inti" then re-write the recorded data. Solves about 80% of the color distortion problems. If it's not a 50V500 you need to expound on your problem and include the model number.

Remove base from television


Remove 2 screws on the back bottom by the stand.

Remove 4 screws, two on each side about 3/4 of the way toward each edge.

Pull TV up to remove from stand. Put plate and 2 screws back.

Can see this if you download the manual from the hitachi site. Just do a search for the model no. on their site's search engine.
