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?

Line, faults & possible causes to LCD & Plasma screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent.
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!
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....
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
Hello there Here is a link to all Hitachi Plasma Tv manuals user guide owners manual and so on I couldn't Find your model so perehps you should check again, but no worries the link is for ALL manuals so Enjoy It.
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.
