Question about Projection Televisions

I have a 2 year old Hitachi 55hds69 plasma tv. It shut itself off and will not restart. The blue power light does not come on, only the red standby light. The tv does try to start, makes a clicking sound for a few seconds, the red light goes out at this time, then nothing.

    2 year old Hitachi plasma tv, model 55hds69 shut itself off and will not turn on. No blue power light, only red standby light. Tv will try to turn on but only clicks for a few seconds then nothing, no red stanby light when trying to turn on. Have had opinions from logic board to power supply to fuse on power supply. Can anyone second an opinion?
    Thanks.

Hiii.....
If the power supply is supplying the main board with the correct amount of volts, your controller board or your on off switch panel is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. If its the whole board your looking at a few hundred unless you can find the same tv with a broken screen and just swap parts.The on/off switch board is cheaper but you have to remove alot of interior parts to access and becomes a hastle.
thank u rate me!!!

You need to check the fuse initially if it is good .
Then next part is power supply board. There can be various reasons for shutoff. Bad soldering can cause this problem.
Power supply board replacement can be done by you if you have any previous experience in handling electronic items . Else leave it to
technican to do the replacement job.
New power supply board will solve your problem .

You can find parts from the link below

Hope this helps .

A repair man is not needed but unless you are fully confident in your ability it is not really wise to want to cause further damage. I would still recommend locating the nearest service center and inquiring about an estimate. You can do that at this link.

Hi!
It is in self diagnostic mode. It has sensed a high voltage power failure and due to that it has entrred the diagnostic mode.
And to see what code it is,you have to active this function. First turn it off (master power on in stand-by) then on the plasma you push and hold the (sub) power button and the down arrow at the same time and hold them for 5 seconds after it comes on. this will activate a series of red LED flashing a code. The code will blink 1/2 second on, 1/2 second off till the total count is done then it will stop for 2 seconds and repeat. Any other function button will stop the diagostics. One blink maybe the Logic board, two blinks the X-Sus board, three blinks maybe the Y-Sus or the Scan driver module (SDM), four blinks maybe the X-Sus, Y-Sus, SDM or the Power Supply (PSU), five blinks maybe the ABUS, the Address driver module (ADM), or the PSU, six blinks maybe cause by the ADM temperature, and eight blinks maybe "all the above-mentioned boards.

lease revert for any clarifications.
If you have found this information useful a FixYa rating would be apprecieated.
Thanks Rylee

The power supply is bad. Not the power cord, the supply inside of the TV itself. It is an electrical board.

    If the set is not under warranty and you are confident, you can order the part and install it yourself. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman.

    My advice, unplug the TV and do it yourself. If you feel that you cannot do it after having the part there, you still saved money by troubleshooting it yourself and you have the part already. Call a sericeman out and have him install the part.

    That is the truth!

If its making a clicking sound and does not come on, it definitely the main fuse from the power supply. It is either burned due to power surge causing it to be opened. You need to replace that.

The tv turns on but then shuts down. will not stay on, any ideas why?


If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV then it has self diagnostic feature and if it gets any problem inside, its red light will start blinking in specific numbers to show an error code.
Let me know how many times its red standby light blinking between 3 seconds interval.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

I have a Hitachi Plasma TV model 55HDS69 that recently went black while being watched. I turned the main power off and unpluged it overnight and tried turning it back on, but only the red standby light...


Do it again, only this time unplug any video and audio inputs and outputs, unplug it from any power source, and leave it sit overnight.

I had the same problem with my Hitachi. I called a local repair shop and he said to unplug it for 10 minutes and start it again. That didn't work so I got it ready to take to the shop. I disconnected everything. The next morning I decided to check it one more time so I reconnected everything. It worked just as it had before.

I hope it works for you.

TV shuts off


I would suggest that you guys turn the unit off when this happens, unplug the unit for 30 seconds, plug it back in, and see if this helps. If this does not solve your problem, you should call 1-800-448-2244, so a service center in your local area can be found for further assistance.

Re: standby mode???


No really the standby mode dosent mean the sets fried or unrepairable. It just means that the sets in a shutdown mode till a power supply problem is corrected. They have shut down protection when the power supply dosent regulate the b+ and if it didnt shut down it would give off tons of X type radiation. thats just a safty on the set. seek a pro to assist you in repairing the set. Good Luck
