SOURCE: Hitachi 43UWX10B TV went off constant clicking

it could be an internal corruption problem, but I doubt it. This problem is usually a serious power failure and generally very expensive. Sorry to say.

ONE: First, reset the tv by unplugging the power cord and let it remain unplugged for at least 4 hours. When you plug it back in the internal codes will come up as factory default settings. It may reset the power control section, but I doubt it; maybe 10% chance.

TWO: Look for a fuse on the back side of the set. It would be a black round knob with a fuse inside when you unscrew the cap. The fuse is usually about 1.5 inches long and 1/4 inch in diameter with metal on both ends and glass tube in the middle. Replace it with the exact same rating. It will probably blow again when you put in the new fuse (90% probably) and you will have to find out what is causing the failure.

THREE: If nothing seems to make any improvements, you will need to have a trained tech come to your home for a house call. If you can find someone who has experience with your model or similar chassis from the same manufacturer you will be better off.

IS THE SET WORTH FIXING: Yes, generally speaking, big projection sets are built to last 10 to 20 years. If you like the set and it has been a good product for you it would be worth fixing. The cost of repair will likely be in excess of $200 plus the house call. But that may not be a bad investment to keep it running for another few years.

But, in the long run it is a decision you will have to make.

Technically speaking, the cause of power interrupt failures are caused by heavy power drawing circiuts such as the projection tubes, power supply and high voltage sections. The projection tubes are very, very expensive to replace, but the others are not so bad.

Hope this helps you get started on the right solution.

Thanks for sending in your question and let me know if you will need further commentary.

Hitachi p50h401 the power light keeps flashing

If you have a flashing red light, try this first: The flashing red light is, according to the Hitachi service manual, an indication of exactly one problem. It is that the fan (internal, blows air over the power supply heat sinks) has failed. In my case, it failed by continuing to spin (very confusing), but put out a signal (3V on the white wire of the fan harness) that it has failed (I had to look up the data sheet on the fan to figure this out). A new fan from Arrow $10 fixed the problem. If you suspect your fan, spinning or not, you can safely short the white to the black wire to see if your TV remains on after being turned on (solid red light), and then try turning your TV on (blue light) to see if it works.

I have a 50vs810 dlp. The blue and red lights flash in sequence when I turn it on.When they stop flashing the red light for the lamp is on. The yv has no volume and no picture. Is it just the bulb or does...

More than likely, it is the bulb. My hitachi 50v715 would come on(light up and show picture) 3 to 30 sec's with out the lamp indictor even lighting up. Put a new bulb in and works great. So I would try a new bulb. Look in your manual for the bulb number. Buy an original hitachi bulb they last a little longer.
