Question about Hitachi 51F510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Hitachi 50" TV, no picture, blue light flashes

My neighbor has an @3 yr old 50" Hitachi TV, and when he turns it on, the blue "warm up light" keeps flashing, and the screen stays dark. The Sears repair man said its a control board, and estimated $800 + labor?! A local shop quoted him $300+ - what can I do to troubleshoot/diagnose so we can cut cost?

Hitachi projection tv quit


Pls check that model number........the problem description does not match that of a 1999 crt proj tv.........I believe yours is a newer lcd projection around 4 or 5 yr old?? Lamp light flashing on any brand is indicative of the lamp not lighting . The lamp is the most likely cause,but the ballast board can cause this as well..................you should see an access door refer to owner book of the correct model and you can replace yourself...........it may cost around $200 and avaiolable at encompass parts .com Hitach distributor

I would say you are lucky to get a pretty fair price, sounds like a convergence problem- if the tv is a projection wide screen. worth the investment Julio milleniumtvsvc@gmail.com

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.
