1 Answer

Green Screen My tv screen has turned bright green, all the inputs have a green screen. I called Hitachi, they sent me out the newest upgrade, i installed it still every input channel is bright green. no picture, i have the menu screens and the sound works fine. It's been three months now and i still haven't been able to watch my tv. I'm hardly at home and Unfortunately the Hitachi call center is closed when i get home. So you guys are my only hope..... Please tell me someone else has had this problem and let me know how to fix it.

Sounds like the green tube is shorted.

Hitachi 65f59 65 TV keeps shutting off

This set uses a number of green L.E.D.'s inside which are tied to different voltages---if you can watch them when set shuts off you are looking for one that goes out either quickly or after the others--points to area (voltage) where problem may be.

Other visual indications are screen changes red, green, blue right at shutdown and sound and brightness then both vanish=shutdown circuit being triggered to protect the set.

I have a hitachi rptv model #43FWX20B and the picture has a red tint to it. Opened back up and red green and blue bulbs light up. red bulb stays bright while blue and green go dim to bright as tv plays....

Since you don't have any white lines with the red screen/picture I would say that the red bulb (CRT) is conducting too much. There is an adjustment control for that. The 'sceen' control is behind the speaker cover and service cover. Turn red screen control slightly to the left until you get a good black and white picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Green hue

Unplug the TV from the wall and plug it back after 45-60s should fix the problem. However, it will come back from time to time so the same procedure will reset the video board. You'd want to upgrade the firmware on the ATSC tuner as well because old firmware was built before the final standard and when the TV goes digital in June 2009, it wreak havoc on all older HD TV. Go to hitachi website and download new FW for your TV. Copy the FW to an SD card and follow procedure from Hitachi to upgrade. It works wonder for my TV after the upgrade.

46" Rear Projection Hitachi - Green / Yellowish Screen

daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.

After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.

That's it. Seriously.
