Question about Hitachi 60UX58K 61 in. Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Won't power up

Nothing looks burnt on the boards, no funny smell. TV worked great this morning. Went to turn it on tonight, nothing, not even a flicker. Found that by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in, it would start to power up, the led's would light up as far as Diode D946, and then the TV would simply shut off. Any help would be really appreciated. Scott

If you have Hitachi model number 50UX58B, 60UX58B, 50UX58K, 60UX58K, 50SBX78B or 60SBX78B and you have the following symptoms you may want to grab a repair kit from They have put together a kit that includes the parts and instructions to fix these models. This is a fairly common problem with the above model numbers. It is typically caused by a blown capacitor and pico fuse. Again, you can get a kit from the above address. 

Here are the symptoms...

Primary Symptom: No Audio or Video. Power light will come on briefly then shut off.
Other Possible Symptoms : The green LEDs on the circuit board light up for a few seconds then turn off.

Hope this helps,

I had the same thing happen to me a time or two and after extensive troubleshooting I found a simple solution which will hopefully work for you as well- at least in the short run:
Unplug the TV for 30 seconds or so. Then plug it in and try again.
Unfortunately you're probably going to eventually run into the same problem that I'm having now- the TV won't turn on or even light the indicator. I'm guessing it's a short somewhere that caused both issues which slowly escalated. I'm going to be working on that soon to see if I can just replace a fuse.

It won't start. Could it be the lamp?

I have a 36" Panasonic TV (manufactured in 2004) that suddenly stopped working. It was working fine up until I turned it off one evening before going to bed. The next morning, when I went to turn it on, NOTHING. No power indicator light, NOTHING. I'm a big "do-it-yourselfer", so I took off the back cover of the TV case and discovered that it was just a burnt-out fuse. It is a small "snap-in" glass fuse that should be mounted to a circuit board near the area where the main power chord enters the back of the TV. I found the replacement fuses at Radio Shack. The fuse came in a package of 4, for $2.99. Cheap fix and works great! The biggest problem I had with the fix is that the TV weighs 386 lbs., so I had to get help lifting it out and back into the entertainment center.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc. These two board are the most failed parts in LCD TV.
Please post back what you find.

Sounds like a power supply. Look for fuses on the motherboard that could be blown. Also, you may smell a distinct smell of burnt electronic devices when you smell near PS. Good indication it is fried.

take the back off the tv and where the power cord hooks into the tv check the fuse there on the board if this isnt blown then you are probably looking at a power supply problem look at the board for anything that looks black and burnt or dark brown spots on the board. this will tell you where the problem is if it has any. but it just might be the fuse.
