Hitachi P42H401 - No Picture or Sound. Some Menus work.

Hitachi P42H401. I watched a movie fine on this TV the night before. The next morning, I turned it on and there was no picture or sound. The set receives power (indicator is blue) and I can pull up the main menu and the volume meter appears when adjusting volume. The Inputs Menu does not appear though.

I have a similar problem with mine, if I unplug the tv, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in, it comes back on.

There is a power button on the front and a "main" power button underneath the front panel. Pushing the main power button should reset it.

Maryann,
You should have an RCA cable connector with your DVD player (three wire connector color coded yellow, red, white). If you plug one end of that into your DVD player (out) and into the input #1 in the back of your TV that should be sufficient. Then just select from the input menu on your Tv to watch that input. You do this by the buttons on the lower left of the TV. One is marked "input/exit". Pressing that button should bring-up your input menu then use "menu/select" button to select input 1 and try playing the DVD...
I do have the owner and service manual if you need it just let me know...

Dark over night


Does the TV have a light sensor? If so, turn it off.
The light sensor limits the backlights intensity at night or when it's dark in your room in order for better vieweing convenience.

If you are in a dark environment, it really pains your eyes when the view is too bright. Same works the other way around. If it's day, and light in your room. The light sensor will dimm the backlight for it isn't needed.

Let me know if this solved your question.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen

  • Sorry but it can't be fixed without knowing how a tv works on the inside. The problem is on the inside possibly in the horizontal section and should be taken to a repair shop
