Hi


This could mean a loose connection on CRT Board (red of course). Also check to see if lines going to board are connected correctly. If nothing, then there could be something trying to short itself out on CRT board. Look for burnt resistors and bad capacitors. The actual problem may be the red driver transistor or a cold solder joint. You can also check the bulb which is accessed in the front just under the screen on the left side. It comes in a black box and is not removable from the box. You have to replace the whole assembly the bulb is in.


If everything is fine there then the problem is most likely a defective light engine, it is a very common problem with these TVs. Hitachi is not very forthcoming with information or help unless you’re still under warranty. If you are not good at soldering and de- soldering have a local TV shop do it for you.



Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up


Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

Lines on tv screen


Both sound like bad LCD panels. The following must be answered to confirm this:
Do the lines appear on all inputs/all signal sources?
Can they be seen in the OSD/menu?
If yes to both questions, it is likely that the LCD panel is bad

Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. HDTV screen black outs and red lines


Hi: We had this problem under warranty, and tech installed the following to solve it: Parts BN96-02033A, BN96-02034A and BN96-02216A. This solved the problem for 2 years. I now have the upper half going black now and then for 2 to 3 seconds. I am ordering these parts from www.partstore.com and will just plug them in. Better than a new tv.

Line accross top of the screen with flashing black and white boxes


Thin white dashes on top of screen is PERFECTLY NORMAL. It is nothing wrong with the TV, it is the broadcast. What you are seeing is the very bottom of the timecode running. It doesn't happen all of the time or all channels. It usually happens with old 4:3 commercials predating "Digital TV." This is mentioned in your Users Manual. You should be able to adjust the horizontal/vertical position in the menu settings.

I am told my Hitachi 61SDX01B (UltraVision/Ultrascan) has "Green Geometry"


Sounds like a convergence promblem.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of a convergence problem.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.
