Question about Hitachi 42HDT52 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Inputs The tv was operating perfectly until we unplugged to it go on vacation. When we came home and plugged it back in the only thing we can get is the satelite for input. The remote will only work the volume. How can we fix this?

    My problem seems very similar. The TV was working fine one day, but the next, the remote would only change the volume and turn the TV on and off. Our TV is set to come on with the TV Guide grid on, so all we can see is the little preview box in the corner, the rest is on TV Guide. The remote wouldn't remove the TV Guide grid when I hit the guide button, and wouldn't let me change channels in the TV Guide grid. I changed the batteries in the remote, but it had no effect. We tried watching a DVD, since the TV comes on when the DVD starts, but now the TV inputs is stuck on DVD, and the remote won't change the inputs back to TV. The buttons on the side of the TV screen also do not have any effect. Any suggestions?

If this is just remote problems then check batteries first and if batteries are good then maybe the Sensor in set. X480310

We just return home from a vacation, I turn the power back on ton our hitachi plasma tv 42" and it trip the bottom power switch, It still keep tripping. It's about 5years old. Thanks


Your tv problem is the main power supply. First unplug the tv, then remove the back cover of your tv then try to observe your main power supply if there is as bulged top in the capacitor or not perfectly flat on the top of the capacitor try to compare the other capacitor or if you see a leaky capacitor the one that has a wet mark at the bottom of the capacitor try to replace it but observe the polarity before replacing the capacitor.

I have bought a HDMI cable and I cant seem to get my Prosonic to work with my pc. It works on other TV's The cable works fine with dvd player. Is there somewhere on the TV I shall activate first? I...


How many HDMI Inputs are available on the TV? Also, are you trying to project your computer to the TV or get TV on your PC?
I will assume the first scenario. The only thing I can suggest is that if there are multiple HDMI inputs then you will need to choose the correct one to change it to. If it does not give you that option on the TV input switcher menu then you can try to plug and unplug (while everything is on and attempting to project) the HDMI cable into different inputs on the TV until you find the right one.
Alternatively you can use a VGA/DVI cable depending what is on the back of the TV and that will definately work, but won't be HD.
Hope this helps.

I have a samsung tv and samsung blu ray i have my dvr in hdmi 1 and my blu ray in hdmi 2. when i first turn on my tv and blu ray it works fine but if i switch to cable the back to blu ray it says no...


First, HDMI is not a perfect hook-up solution. Cable box connections via HDMI are notorious for being problematic. The best thing you can do is contact Samsung and get the latest firmware for your TV.
Samsung Customer Care: 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). If this does not resolve the issue, connect the cable box using Component cables instead of the HDMI. Component cables are HD also. I hope this was of some assistance.

TV Stuck on 1 channel


We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. The first thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. We want to then check what type of cable was used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out": Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, back if it is labeled "Home Distribution": Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears; Most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source" button. If we are still not getting a picture then unplug receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver, then try cycling the inputs again.


We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

This is not good. Was your tv unplugged or just power button off when you left for vacation. PlasmaTvs are highly susceptible to damage from power surges caused by lighting. Leave unplugged for at least five minutes then plug back in and see if this helps.
