Hitachi 42 Plasma TV Screen Goes Black

Hello I have a 42 Hitachi Plamsa tv and when ever I turn the tv on it works for about a minute and then coloured lines begin to run throught the tv. Once this occurs the tv screen just goes right black and I have no picture or sound. The blue light on the tv just flashes three times and then stops and flashes three times over and over again. When I unplug the tv and plug it back in it works again until the same problem occurs.
Any ideas what this could be?

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.

What can be wrong


Hello,
Is the t.v new or its been some years that you bought it?Have you checked the DC voltages leaving the power supply? If not, let's try that now.

Put your red lead on each pin leaving the power supply one at a time, with your black lead on any exposed chassis metal for ground. Stick that red lead down into the connector so the lead makes contact with the pin.

Be sure the TV is turned on.

It can be a fault in the screen if it is under warranty i suggest you contact the shop or supplier.

Best regards,
Daniel

My Philips Plamsa won't turn on, has a black screen but the power light is on. There is also a constant clicking noise. Any ideas of what this might be. The tv is a couple of years old.



The picture is White or Black:

1. Adjust picture setting such as brightness or contrast

2. Check the color settings

3. Check to ensure you cable connections are connected properly.

Black line on plasma tv


hi all .ive had the same problem,a thick black line down screen.sometimes it flickers from top to bottom and other permantly in view.but i have solved it.forget your ic boards and taking apart tv.have you got either a ps3 or wii connected to tv.if so unplug power lead from socket and relocate in seperate socket.make sure the lead is completely free of any other leads and you might just find this works.i think the power lead creates some sort of frequency that the tv picks up .good luck hope it works

Green Screen - LG 42PX5D


hello, seems to be panel trouble, plasma and lcd main panels are not fixable, the color green isnt a good sign or it is a symptom of the panel being bad,
i know its a bad diagnosis but this is true with this color on a panel.
if it is a worth while set and you want to restore it theres few options one is replacement trough your waranty

the another is having the screen replaced by a service center this is to costly and rarely done by them they would advise you to get another set. at a retail price a screen replacement is as much or even more than the tv itself.

finally you may search online listings for a servicable tv same model and exchange the parts .
the third option is the best if your waranty is expired.

good luck hope this helps

happy holidays.
