Question about Hitachi 53SWX12B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black out My Hitachi tv just started acting up about a week or 2. At frist I thought maybe it was my satalite dish, but now I'm not so sure. It blacks out almost the whole screen leaving about an 1 1/2 around the edges where you can still see the show but it stays on and won't go away. I have turned the tv off, and then back on again, but it eventually happens again. My husband tried to see what he could do, but we don't want to complicate things. I hope I have given you enough info! Thank you! Lilraidersteph

I can not seem to be able to change the inputs to watch my dish network

Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see the Hitachi TV willnot change inputs. The first thing you will want to do is make sure the DISHremote is programmed to the TV, and if it already is please put the remote inTV mode and select Input and if it still does not change grab the Hitachiremote and try to change it from there. Now if it did not change the input tryto change it on the TV itself and if that will not change you will want tocontact Hitachiand I will send the link to their site.

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g

Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

May be one of two things. With a standard av input (called Composite Video and usually colored Yellow) then the signal must be 480i, Standard Definition with (i)nterlace. If it is higher, say 1080i (another interlace signal but High Definition), 480p (Standard Definition in (p)rogressive mode), or 720p (another HD in progressive).

Try reseting the Dish receiver by unplugging it for 15 seconds.

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.

When a black box appears on the screen it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. When the closed captions are set to CC1, it puts the words on the screen and when set to TEXT it puts a black box in the center of the screen. Go into the set's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
