Question about Hitachi Televison & Video

1 Answer

I pushed the AVX bottom 3 times. The TV screen went off but the red light on. I realized I didn't pushed the off/on bottom and mistakenly pushed the AVX. I picked up my remote and turned the TV off. Now I can't turn it on. I can hear it clicks but there is no picture and no sound. Please help!

    Thanks for your reply. I have done this before and fixed it by playing with remote. But I can't remember how I fixed it. It has to do with AVX bottom on the TV and remote. I am not sure what the AVX bottom does (beside switching the TV to Video1 and Vedio2 and something else), but this happened when I turn my TV off when the AVX bottom switches my TV to something other than TV.

    I couldn’t find my remote, so I pushed the AVX bottom on the TV instead of the off/on bottom on my TV. The screen went blue (Vedeo1), I pushed it again it showed Vedeo2, I pushed it one more time and the screen went black ( looked like it was off). I thought I turned it off. But as I was going to my bed, I noticed the red light next to Off/On bottom was still on. As I was going toward my bed, I found the remote and pushed the Off/on bottom on the remote and the red light turned off as it always does.

    Now try turn it on, the red light comes on for 1 second and it turns its self off and hear the click each time I turn my TV off and on. I am addicted to TV, please help!

If the power supply is supplying the main board with the correct amount of volts, your controller board or your on off switch panel is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. If its the whole board your looking at a few hundred unless you can find the same tv with a broken screen and just swap parts.The on/off switch board is cheaper but you have to remove alot of interior parts to access and becomes a hastle.
thank u rate me!!!

Reader suddenly went beserk, lots of activity as though I were pushing buttons to change pages, etc. and then it stopped working properly; some part of the screen shows correctly while most of screen is...


Probably a charge issue, try this:

1. Connect the reader to the computer for 15 minutes (make sure there is a red steady light)
2. Disconnect the reader and press the reset at the bottom
3. slide the power switch to turn it on
4. If the problem persist you will need to do a hard reset
5. If after a hard reset the issue is not resolve problably you will need to contact sony to get it repaires =(

Tv comes on for a few minutes then goes off

If you take off the front bottom panel of the tv wich is easy. Then you will see 6 tuning knobs at the bottom middle of the tv .the top 6 control contrast for the lights dont mess with those. the bottom 3 are the power to each is bottom left if your screen went blue it makes sense that the red is starting to go but if you turn down the power to it left 1/8 turn it should fix it for awhile .Its easy.

TV Problem with shutting off by itself

Mine just did the same thing.  Except for it was green instead of blue.  The service manual states 8 flashes from the light stands for an overvoltage.  After reading the manual for a bit I realized the bottom row of 3 adjuster screws from behind the speaker grill adjust the output for the red, green, and blue colors.  BEFORE OPENING ANY TV OR MONITOR PLEASE KNOW THAT THE VOLTAGE INSIDE CAN KILL YOU EVEN IF UN-PLUGGED so please be careful and only adjust what is mentioned here.  I un-plugged the tv, removed the grill and the board covering the internals, and carefully turned the 3 adjustment screws all the way down.  I then waited about 10 minutes (don't know if this made a difference).  I turned on the tv, turned the channel to an auxilary input (for a black screen), and slowly raised each of the 3 bottom screws one by one up clockwise until i could see a faint green, blue, or red line (depending on the screw), and then turned each one back a hair until the screen was black again.  Only adjust one at a time, the order for colors are blue, green, then red from the left.  I hope this fixes your problems.  Be careful when working inside a tv,  I suggest not using a screw driver to adjust the screws due to the possibility of it slipping and someone getting hurt.

TV turns off

That sounds like a power board problem if im not mistaken where your power cord plugs into the tv there is a board it connects to often times if u plug the tv in and it starts itself or turns its self off its the power board that needs to be replaced which btw is not cheap at all
