Question about Hitachi 32UX51B 32" TV

1 Answer

Hitachi 32 No Picture or sound

Hi, We just returned home after 5 months. TV was unplugged, but cable still screwed in. Cable service off for the 5 months. When I try to turn on the set either by remote or button on the front, I hear a click and the sound of electrical working in the set, but no sound or picture. Nothing via the vcr either, Seems this happened before, a year or so ago, but this time unplugging for awhile does not cure it. It is about 10 years old and just a regular ultravison set, not hd, plasma, etc. Could lightning have caused a problem. I have come home to a leaking water heater, a/c not working and now no tv!! Not sure of model number Any suggestions?

Re: Hitachi 32 No Picture or sound

If you are hearing a click and electrical statics when you try to turn it ON, the flyback of the tv is busted there are alot of reasons for that problem lighting is one so dont leave the cable screwed in if ever youre going out for a long time. you can have it replaced by a technician ( flyback). but it would cost you. and im not sure if you can find an orginal flyback considering its 10years old. there are replacement flybacks but quality would not be as good as the original one.

  • 1 Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  • 2 Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  • 3 Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  • 4 Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  • 5 Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  • 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  • 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  • 8 Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  • 9 Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television

    No sound on my 32'' Insignia LCD HDTV

    you might try checking the sap (secondary audio programming) option in your tv if it has one make sure it is turned off. if it is off or does not have that option you will most likely have to take it to a repair shop. i would not try to fix it my self as you will do more harm than good.

    Sound no picture

    Hi there!
    If the set is a few months old, it should still be under guarantee. Return to seller for repairs. You will need proof of purchase and purchase date. Good Luck, JUS004

    No picture but sound on the tv

    In regards to the Sony KV32XBR450 without picture but sound, mine just had this problem occur yesterday. After doing a quick troubleshooting check, I have found that the problem is most likely a bad tuner, as when I directly connected a video source to the RF (Cable Coax) connector, I wasn't able to get a picture, etc.

    I was able to "by-pass" this issue for now, while I wait for the replacement part (special order via Sony Authorized Repair Service Ctr), by using the S-video output from my Dish Network and plugging that into the S-Vedio input on the back of the TV, (you might also have S-video output on your local cable box too). Now I've got a really nice picture, but without sound, so all you need to do is utilize either your Audio outputs from your Satelite Box or Cable Box and connect them to your Audio inputs under the S-Video cable and you'll have picture and sound. If you have a DVD/VCR, etc. with audio feed-thru connections, you can also accomplish this with your standard hook-ups to that device, just select it for the sound while you use video 3 (or 4) where you connected the S-Video cable.

    This will let you contact your local repair/service center and see if they can get the parts needed to make the repair. I figure that the parts will run between $40-$120, plus a $50 diagnostic fee (usually applied towards your repair bill), plus the labor charge. If I was having the repair done by the shop, I'd expect to pay around $200-$250 +/-. Not bad for a HD Flat panel TV when you consider that a new Flat panel with 1/2 the resolution (720p) will cost you $450 +/-
    and a 1080i is more than double that. Remember that the Sony KV32XBR450 is HD 1080i and 720p in one unit. Hope this helps.

    Picture problem

    It sounds like to have a problem in the video circuit or the Hi voltage circuit. If you know how to fi8x electronbics then get a meter and monitor the b+ on the crt drivewr transistors. See my point . WQe cant tell you exactly what the problem is and teach you how to read a circuit diagram, and to solder. These sets have a high voltage in them even when they are unplugged so you shouldnt really touch these puppys as there are no user serviceable parts inside these sets and should only be done by a quilifyed service tech!! If its only 4 to 5 months old there should be a warranty on the set so you shouldnt touch it as well just for that reason. You should be looking up in the owners manual for a servicer or # to call to find one to fix it under the warrantee. good Luck
