    I turned on the TV and have sound but no picture. The unit is about the same age as Ken's. Is it worth repairing? There was no indication that anything was going bad.

Is the lamp light on? Probably just need to replace the lamp. very easy to do. just remove the cover with a screw, unscrew the old lamp, pull it out, put in the new one. easy. cost you about a hundred dollars for the lamp. buy the name brand one. the generic ones burn out quickly and don't save you much money when you buy them.

Yes worth repairing but not a crt problem. the crt's are powered by a high voltage transformer and sometimes it's caps that goes bad and in turn knocks out the crt's. but they are ok, it's in the high voltage line.

Has a black screen. The screen slowly went from dark to darker, then went to dark. I have a Hitachi CLU-572TSI projection tv


Not likely a do it yourself repair---loss of the filament voltage (6.3 volts) in the power supply of the set (some had issues where a resistor changes value).

I have a Hitachi 51G500 and there is sound but not picture. Tried the reset button and nothing happened. all three bulbs are still working. what can be the cause of this not having sound but no picture?


Is it connected to an antenna? Is it all channels? Can you play a DVD? Is the contrast too high? Can you access the onscreen controls? I have the 57" model and cannot figure anything else, currently -- the manual does give any suggestions.

Sounds like flyback shorting out and shutting down high voltage, causes TV to turn off for protection.

I would send in for repair cause this is big $$$ cost!

No, this could mean a loose connection on crt board(red of course) Look also and check to see if lines going to board are connected correctly. If nothing, then there could be something trying to short itself out on crt board. look for burnt resistors and bad capacitors.
