Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power light is blinking red and TV will not turn on

We were watching tv this morning and the screen went black and the power button started blinking red. We have tried unplugging and waiting a while (30 minutes) and that did not help. Any suggestions before we call for service? It is a Hitachi 53hdf20b.

    We had a service call from Sears and he replaced two conversion amplifiers and a resistor. It fixed the problem but we no longer have the Magic Focus option and the convergence is off slightly in the upper right hand corner. We have another call into Sears...

    The Sears repair guy was terrific and knowledgeable. It cost about $200.00 which was surprisingly low. There is a kit that you buy plus the labor. He came back a second time at no charge and was on the phone with the technical staff for over an hour. They could not determine the reason that the Magic Focus no longer works. The convergence is slightly off but there is no way to fix it now. They could order a $350 part but it may not fix the problem. So for now, we are watching it as is. The kit they used had Sanyo parts, not Hitachi, but they say it is compatible. I think that is the problem with the Magic Focus.

    there is a button on the PWR/DEF PWB that says Service Only, this should have been done by tech after replacing amps. This is probably why you don't have Magic Focus.

I have a Philips Plasma tv 42pf5321d/37 with sound but no picture

Thats the great sound of Exploding capacitors on either the power supply board. or another one in there. Now the set is in fault protection. It tried to warn you with the RED blinking LED that there was something amiss by shutting itself down. When you unplugged you reset the error and allowed it to do it again.

Best Regards and Smper Fi

Try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
