Hitachi Ultravision50vf820 Over the last couple weeks i have noticed that the picture is getting dimmer and dimmer..even in daytime mode... yesterday I tried to adjust it with the contrast and it got better. This morning I tried to turn it on and I get nothing, no pic no sound... The system seems as if its trying to boot up but shuts down ofter a minute or so..I also notice the bulb light and the heat light are flashing dimly... I believe it to be the bulb, just want someone to confirm.. or give me some direction. Thanks

Use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Fault to the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

TV powering on and off every few minutes

Yes, this is common in Sony's when the lamp begins to fail. You may even see a small sulfar looking burn on the lens of the lamp (that is what causes the pic to go dimmer). Remember not to touch the lens when replacing new lamp.

Calapsed picture frame

Hi there,

This can only be a bad soldered on the video module, its better to check for any bad soldered and for any fault on the resistor on the video output module.

Hope this initial info / idea helps.

Please Accept my solution if I solved the issue.

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.
