Picture color is fading

If it is fading on all screens (menus included) then it is the picture tubes. If it only fades when source is played, it is the tuner electronics.

I can't keep a cable signal on my hitachi ultrascan hd t.v. what to do?

It could be a bad tuner in the set if you are using the Coax fitting for signal---if the rear audio/video inputs work with a cable box you could route signal into one of those instead of the tuner, bypass the issue.

Have isolated problem to vhf/uhf connection point. white lines flash in pic. w/a popping sound & if they stay for very long there is a buzzing as in over white or over modulation. problem shows when...

Problem seems with main tuner in this tv as other AV inputs working fine so please replace main tuner (TU2) to solve this issue.
There are two tuners mounted on A board TU1 and TU2, please replace TU2 and part number would be written on tuner itself.
TV is approx 10 years old so I would recommend that do not spend lots of money on it.

No signal and theres signal

sounds like you need a new tuner replaced or the ssb(small signal board) inspected. The tuner recieves the cable signal and converts it into an intermidiate signal which in turn the ssb processes into audio and video signal.

Can not get pip to work

Pip has its own tuner, try getting a cable splitter to split the signal into the tv. If you have digital cable you may need a second cable box to do this. If your cable provider still sends an analog signal the splitter will work.

I have a Sony Projection TV KP-53v80. I tried to turn it on today bu there is no picture no sound. The Timer/Standby indicator flashes 4 times. What does this mean?

No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted.
Check IC1509, Q1505

Sony projection tv with dual tuners; only one tuner appears to be working now.

To verify that the tuner is the problem, move the cable from the second to the first. If you don't get a signal, the tuner is bad. The main tuner is part number 859843000 and is available for $47.38 from

When you say you have tried all the inputs you are not clear if you mean tuner, vcr, dvd, aux, etc. If you are talking about only the cable input it sounds like you have a bad tuner. To obtain picture in picture there are 2 tuners in your set. This would explain why the small picture is ok while the main picture is bad. You should be able to swap the signals (see your ops manual). Try this. If the snow moves the one tuner is bad. If you have put other signals in (besides cable)such as dvd then the problem is in the matrix circuitry where the two signals merge. Either problem should be easy for a good tech to solve and not cost a whole lot.
