Question about Hitachi 43FDX01B TV

1 Answer

Power problem? This just started happening recently, that when we have the tv and dining room lights on, the lights dim and the tv has thick black lines through it as if it is going to shut off. We shut the tv off and the lights were fine, when we put the tv back on the lights dimmed. We had an electrician check our power and he changed breaker to the house and checked the connection of the power lines to the house, we also had the power co check the lines to the pole and everything is ok. It all seems to come back to the tv, any insight would be helpful.

Re: power problem?

Try th set in another room, if only to see if this phenomenom happens with other light fixtures or appliances. Would suspect the switching type supply in the TV as suspect if the problem "moves" with the set....accordianman

Hi I have a argos brought bush led tv that is only a year old and very rarely used but now for some reason it will not turn on at all I've changed fuse etc but nothing I'd say the tv has only dine abo

When you say not turning on is it completely dead, or has it gone into stand by mode, needing the remote to fire it up. Might sound patronising but are you sure both fuses are good?? Might have been in a spare room and got damp on the circuit boards and blown a internal fuse.

No, the room temperature should not have an affect. Is video 1 or video 2 dim as eell or just tuner?

I am trying to get a remote code for my slyvania 6719

I also can't find the remote for my Sylvania
TV/VCR/DVD combo...
Model number 6719DF. I don't normally use this tv
(it's an extra spare that I plug into our generator when
the power goes out... since our regular family TV is
quite big and set into the wall making it difficult to
track cords around, I drag this crappy Sylvania down
from our dining room to our family room) I did
happen to find an old Zenith universal remote that
does work with it in some ways (See directions
below). I can turn the TV on and off, set the channels,
language, clock.. etc through the Input select button
on the universal remote but can't set to "Game Mode"
after using connections with video/audio input cords
plugged into the front panel of the TV. So
Playstations, extra dvd players or vcr's, etc won't
Switching from the VCR to DVD and vice versa does
require manually setting the tv itself (remote doesn't
work with that) but at least I can set sub titles, fast
forward through chapters on Dvd's and control the
volume, etc without having to constantly walk over to
the tv.
Programming the remote: I've noticed a lot of people
have tried using codes supplied by different universal
remote providers and couldn't find a code that
worked using their lists with this particular model...
there is a way that it can be done but it's a bit more
time consuming:
Many types of "universal" remotes give the option of
"scanning" the electronic device for a code if one is
not available or the one provided with lists does not
work... Every universal remote though needs certain
buttons pushed during the "scan" and they are all
different! Ha! So if you lost or misplaced the MANUAL
as well (like me!) you might need to do a search on a
manual for your particular universal remote, but I can
at least give you directions on programming a
"Zenith" Universal remote to "scan" for a Sylvania
TV/DVD/VCR combo model 6719DF:
Using the Zenith Universal Remote or any Universal Remote using it's "scan" method:
1: Shut off the TV
2. Press and hold "Code Search" on the remote until
the red LED
light lights up and stays lit.
3. Press the device button for the device (In my case,
for my crappy Sylvania combo, I pressed "TV".)
The LED light will blink once.
4. Scanning: Slowly press and release the "Power"
button on the remote, waiting a few seconds between
while watching the TV to turn on. It's very important
that you pause in between because if you do it too fast
and the TV turns on before you press the power
button again... you'll have to start all over. I've
learned that lesson.
It took 160 presses each time on that button to get the
correct code scanned! I had to do it over 3 times
before I stopped myself beforehand because I was
pressing it too quickly..
5. Right after the TV power turns on, press the "Mute"
button on the remote to set the code. It should work with few limitations (no "game" mode)
after that.

Same Problem

Hi the problem you are having will be with the starter located on the circuit board where the power lead attatches to the telly thiss will have a thick black wire coming from this to the screen.

To replace this you will need special equipment and i wouldnt advise doing it yourself as the telly is still live up to 2 days after it is unplugged from the mains.
As for the cost of the repair you will find it cheaper to buy a new telly as when the things go wrong like yours you tend to solve one problem after another so it would be best to replace the whole telly its just not worth repairing yourself.
If you wanted it repairing then goto a small repair shop as they are glad of the work and tend to charge alot less than bigger shops.

Please dont attempt this yourself unless you have been trained to read schematices.

Its not worth electricuting yourself by removing the case as their is no easy fix to this problem this is a common problem with all tellys of your type this happens to them all after a certain time so its not just your telly ive had it happen 3 times.

The first time i done the repair as i have been trained to do this type of work but i found i just kept getting problem after problem so the next 2 tellys that went wrong i just scrapped it really is not worth doing.

Sorry i couldnt give you good news hopefully you wont give me a bad rating but if their was a way to solve your problem i would advise you on it but their is no easy fix. sorry
