Question about Hitachi 46GX01B 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bad picture The unit is almost 9 years old. So I'm wondering if it is worth fixing. The unit gives off a not so clear image. I have tried to make adjustments to to contrast etc. and no better. Is it worth repairing or not. And what do you think it may need.

    Techman said the Big Screen TV might have Bad Power Supply Capacitors. What does that mean and can those be changed. I have tried cleaning totally inside , lenses etc.

Have you taken the front screen off yet and cleaned the lens and mirrors? Dust and dirt, and specially nicotine gets on these surfaces and clouds up the picture really bad. If you clean the set and this does not help, you probably have bad picture tubes, and I would not invest in new tubes at this point, or there could be bad power supply capacitors. Good Luck

    If you do not know what capacitors are my friend, you should not be messing around inside this TV set.

My LG refrigerator model # LFC 20745SW quit working totally, what could be wrong & is it worth fixing it's 7 yrs old. It's

no one but the technician you get in to diagnose the fault will be able to give you answers to make that decision
with no lights there is no power so the initial indications are that the fix will be less than a new unit
they only become costly it the compressor is unserviceable

HCL652W picture faded will bulb replacement fix this

I would say that it is not worth replacing the bulbs. I had a similar experience with an old rear projection TV like that and I just cleaned all the dust out of it as well as I could. i cleaned the back of the screen, the mirror that the image reflects off of, and the bulbs themselves. I used a dry micro fiber cloth so as not to scratch anything. doing this might help you some, but if it is working and it is bright enough for you after a few minutes, I would just live with it until you can upgrade to a newer TV.

My Hoover floormate motor started smoking. It is over 9 years old. I keep the floor brushes clean. I am wonder if replacing the mother is worth it.

MSRP on this motor is $69.95. Labor may be another $30.00. I often see these units in thrift shops, which may be worth a try.

The starting relay may be the culprit and is very inexpensive to replace. It is probably worth fixing.
After it is fixed, make sure you get the condenser fins cleaned.

I have a 9 yr. old Kenmore washer with oil underneath. Is it worth fixing, or should I replace it?

If you have oil under the unit dont fix it! At nine years old this is not worth it, if you have oil its the trans that is shot. Your looking at 300-500 for a repair. I would look at the new ge washers they have no trans, also fisher & paykel makes a great washer that has no trans
