Question about Hitachi 57SWX20B 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns off

When I turn the TV on with the remote it shuts off after 3-10 seconds. I then need to unplug the TV and plug it back in at which time in turns back on for 3-10 seconds. I need to keep repeating this unplugging process from 2 to 15 times before the TV stays on for good. This is very fustrating to say the least. Any help is appreciated.

Re: TV turns off

It sounds like you might either have a bad power cord or you might have an over heating issue. Some times the TV will automatically shut off if it senses a fan issue or it starts to overheat. What technology is your set? DLP, LCOS, DILA...? If its under warranty I'd suggest to get someone out asap to take a look at it.

Tv turned off

When the tv shuts done does the power light blink? If so what number does it blink? That will tell me which circuit your problem is in. Notice the number of blinks then let me know. Also what is the model number of your set.

Turns off after a few seconds

The unit is going in to shutdown. There is a short in the unit. My guess would be the HOT and or Flyback are bad.
