SOURCE: TV will not power up

LoL!!! I don't know why but all RCA's have Flyback Transformer problems! I have one to here is the part number 259296 if you look around you can buy it for about 15.00 if you know how to solder you can do it your self and save big time! Hey I'm doing it! I don't see paying $500.00 to fix it you could buy a new one. And they are just ripping people off because the parts aren't really that high to fix the flashing light problem. And the part is never on back order so your getting screwed they are probably wanting you to finally say just throw it away. And than they'll fix it for $15.00 and sell it for $600.00 Anyways for the people that are having the same problem go here to buy the Flyback Transformer for the D52W20 http://www.electronix.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?ELECTRONIX_CATALOG_SESSID=c5d90cbb7ae2d4c1449ea48542eef46a&keywords=259296&x=4&y=14

Also here is another website if you have access to junk TV's and want to know what other RCA Flyback Transformer will work. The price on this site is higher for there's though

SOURCE: Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Bad Caps on the AC IN board? I would visually inspect the caps on the AC IN board for any sign of swelling or doming on top. They should be perfectly flat.

Bought my hitachi 50vs69a tv 3 years ago. put new bulb in six months ago after original shattered. New bulb is not working now. TV comes on and stays on a few seconds then power, lamp and temp light start...


Take the lamp out and examine it. Are there any blackened markes that look like arcing marks? If there are then the lamp may be faulty and that could be caused by the ballast but in my experience of working with Sany and Philips lamps, the ballast units generally fail without causing lamp problems.
I should go for a new lamp.
Hope that helps.

I have a hitachi 55vs69 projection television. Lately, it has been shutting down every 15 minutes or so. The screen turns dark but you can still hear video until about a couple minutes later the led light...


Hi,

First step is to unplug the 120 vac power for a few minutes to clear any corrupted data that may be present in the controller circuits.

If a "power" reset doesn't help and the lamp or bulb is installed correctly, you most likely have a failed replacement bulb. The symptoms are all standard indications of a failed bulb.

Reduced lamp life can be caused by:
  1. Lightning and other 120 vac power bumps.
  2. Collisions with vacuum cleaners or other incidental impacts while the TV bulb is operating.
  3. Starting the TV without a complete cool down. Bulb will consume a small amount of mercury with each start. Excessive consumption occurs when bulb is "Hot" and turned on.
  4. Wrong bulb installed as replacement.(Philips original replaced with Osram or El Cheapo)
  5. Poor quality or damaged bulb installed as replacement.
  6. Bulb damaged during replacement
  7. Bulb installed incorrectly at replacement.
Almost all Hitachi 55vs69 "No Picture" failures are related to the bulb.

Many of our service events are with customers that purchased El Cheapo bulbs from "shopping cart" websites or picked up a bulb from a small "local" TV shop. Many small shops stock of 3 or 4 bulbs and try to substitute or cross reference to fit more than 200 models of TVs from 7 different manufacturers. If a premature bulb failure occurs, they have the opportunity to sell you some expensive service.

Hi I have a Hitachi 50v720 and I just replaced the bulb with the Phillips UX21517 bulb. When I turned the tv back on the picture worked fine except everything has a yellow tint.


I don't know if this set is a DLP or not, if it is, it could be your light engine. Not good, mine had a yellow halo about 2in thick in the middle of the screen. Light engine had to be replaced. Hope this is helpful. GOOD LUCK!

My hitachi 50VS69A tv shows the picture green.


A green image is usually due to a lack of red or especially blue. the problem is becoming all too common with hitachi lcd projection sets. what happens is that one of the lenses in the optical block (or light engine) starts to burn or discolor due to overheating because of a blocked air filter causing poor air (cooling) circulation. Nothing can be done when the damage is too far gone except to replace the light engine-at acost that makes it not worth repair. if the damage is minimal than to reduce further damage the air filter should be replaced. Light engine needsto be removed in order to replace the air filter.

DIY light engine


You have a defective light engine and you do not have to be under warranty for Hitachi to replace this part. We just went through this and here's what you need to do. Call Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them that you have a defective light engine. They will act like they've never heard of this problem but they have. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once a tech comes out and confirms that it's the light engine, call Hitachi back and they will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitachi will cover the cost of the part (cost $1500).

Here is the deal, if you're under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. If you're not under warranty, all you pay is the install. Our install cost $400. Others on this site have paid $200. Do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for the light engine part...you do not. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it for free. Also, deal only with Hitachi customer realations number that I listed. Good Luck

You have a defective light engine and here's what you need to do...we just went through this. You need to call Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013. DO NOT call regular customer service. When you first call them, tell them what your set is doing and that you have a bad light engine. They will initially act like they have no idea what you're talking about but they will give you some names and numbers to some local Hitachi dealers. Call one of the dealers to come out and once the problem has been confirmed, call Hitachis customer relations department back. All of a sudden they will have heard of the problem and they will call the dealer to confirm it.

Once they confirm it with the dealer, they will send the part directly to the dealer and the dealer will call you to set up a date/time to come out and install it. Hitachi got our new light engine to the dealer in 2 days.

Now, Hitachi will cover the cost of the light engine (around $1500) regardless if you're still under warranty or not. You will have to pay for the install. Our install was $400. DO NOT let any dealer tell you that you have to pay for the part once they get it from Hitachi...most reputable dealers will not try to do that. Hitachi will cover the cost of the part, all you pay is for the install.

Please deal only with Hitachi customer relations. Their regular customer service department will have you chasing your tail. Once our light engine was replaced, the TV is like brand new. Good Luck!
