Question about Hitachi 61SDX01B 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No video, no audio, red light on in front of TV

Lightning struck near my house and my TV never worked after that. I have no video, no audio. Red light in front of TV comes on, and you also hear the normal click sound. On the Power Supply Board all LED's come on, but there is one LED (D913) that only blinks twice, with less intensity the second time, after that initial blinking it never comes on. On one of the main boards (DPOX Deflection P.W.B.)there is another LED (DP37) that never comes on, and it is near the IC STR F6629B, any suggestions.

Re: No video, no audio, red light on in front of TV

Excellent visual acuity technique!! I try to teach that procedure.

IC F6629B is probably shorted and at least one other part will

be open, possibly a zener diode,a fuse,a resistor or combo.

The service diagram would help.Be sure to use OEM first quality

parts.Let me know if you need more help.

Lightning struck my house and my tv went out I think it blew something in it like the circuit board are ther more than one board in these tv

If the power light doesn't come on then first look for a fuse. It's very likely a fuse. If all fuses are good and power comes on you might have lost a circuit board. Check eBay for boards. Part numbers are printed on them. They just unscrew and unplug. However it could be either board.

No audio, no video

Most likely the power supply. In most models, if the lamp goes out you will still get sound. However, the power supply is not a single piece swap. I would suggest getting a voltmeter, and check the voltage where the power cord meets the power supply. Then follow the circuit pathways, checking after each component, until you find a break in power. You are getting power to that light, so some power is getting through. However, the light works on much less voltage than the rest of the television, so probably there is a capacitor or transformer that's gone out.

I have a 58'' HP Pavillion Projection screen TV. It was struck by lightning. the power cord is good. It will not turn on at all, no fans running, etc. What do you think I will have to fix?

As u have just said that it was struck by lightning the only way to get the TV back working is to replace burnt items on the moterboard .becouse lightning must have demaged some components on the power supply, if possible i would preffer a new power supply board

Tv struck by lightning

You wont be able to fix the TV your self as the power circuit board may have blown - consult a qualified repair man. Buying a surge protector for your expensive electronic goods is highly recommended.

It sounds to me like your bulb has burned out. Look behind your TV for where the bulb housing is and pull the bulb out to check if it's burned out or not. You'll know when you look at it if it's toast.

Lightning struck the cable tv line coming into the house. All of the electronics connected to the cable quit working. I took the back off of one of the tvs, and could not find any sign of scotch, burn,...

A lot of electronic devices have built-in on-board surge suppressors such as MOV's, and avalanche diodes - these could get damaged during a lightning strike. Fuses are another possibility. Beyond that, gotta take out your DMM and oscilloscope and start troubleshooting, or see a technician.
