Question about Hitachi 57S500 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi S57500 projection tv turns itself off

Hitchi S57500 screen will turn green, then white, then the unit will power itself off. Sometimes tv will work for weeks without incident, then it will do as just described and may not work for several days, then will come back on and work. Sometimes it will get multi colored horizontal lines in picture before screen turns green. Thanks in advance for any help with this tv.

Older big screen hitachi w/pip tube tv and has blue lines across the screen turn off on it own sometimes.


It could be time to retire the TV.
The blue almost horizontal lines are probably a fault in the flyback blanking and the fact that it will turn itself off is likely due to a poor solder joint on a circuit board inside.

Green tint


Go to a channel that is in black and white and turn color all the way off.

Screen should be a black and white or gray color.

If green there is a fairly easy way to adjust--let me know what you find and I will tell you how to attempt the adjustments.

Hitachi tv turn off by itself when i get hot, how do i fix it?


Check for any air path obstructions and see if the fan is working, if not it needs replaced or checkd out. You can try and put a fan behind the unit to keep it cool this will sometimes work but the main reason is the set is getting to hot and it shuts itself down to protect itself from a failure.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

No power on Hitachi 50UX588


Most likely have a regulator problem. Remove rear cover, look down on the main chassis, turn tv on watch the board to have some colored led's lit, usually a red one and couple of green. If the red is out, its your regulator, if a green one other problems off the circuit with green led are causing the tv not to power up.
