Question about Hitachi 51SWX20B 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No Sound, No Picture

Moved the TV out of it's normal place by 4 or 5'. When we moved it back 3 days later, the red power light comes on but no picture or sound. Also, the TV will turn on, but not off w/the remote control. Prior to this minor move, the TV has had zero problems! We bought it new in 8/02. Can a TV die so suddenly or is it something I did that can be easily fixed? Booie

Moved playstation to friends tv played fine. Connected back to my tv power lights come on but No sound or picture yet all cables are ok

You need to reset the display, follow these steps :

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3. Wait for the PS3 to start up with normal display settings. If you are using HDMI make sure only the HDMI cable is connected when doing the above steps.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

We just moved the tv into our new home, when we plugged it in and turned it on nothing happens.. no picture or sound, the timer/standby red light blinks 11 times then nothing. We have tried powering it on...

Well I think what has happened is that the move has caused a failure, it well may have been bumped or jostled, these units are VERY delicate, and should NEVER be moved without using the protective crating, they came that no-one keeps, for any transport, (It is absolutely imperative that you keep your packaging these days as it should NEVER ever be moved without putting it back into that packaging for travel) they really do NOT travel well at all. This what you describe is a classic situation, we see it all the time in my shop. You have little option but to get a "Quote" for a repair. this is indeed unfortunate, but all too common from "shifted" item. Especially TV's.

Orion standard tv

Have you had any kind of magnets close to the tv set? I had a brand new sanyo do the same thing. I had pulled the speaker box out of my truck and stood it up next to the tv (not thinking about where I put it). Turned it on a few hours later only to see a messed up picture. I moved the speaker box to get behind the tv and the picture got better. Moved the speaker box back to the truck and after a couple of days the picture was back to normal. These were 4 large magnets on these speakers. Maybe I helped some!

Sound fine, but absolutely no picture?

it seems that your tv has a problem in horizontal circuit (with sound but no pictures). since you moved your tv from one place to another, the tv might have shaken causing to loose some soldered components particularly in horizontal circuit. if u have exprience in this stuffs, try to resolder the circuit, if not, bring it to a service technician.
