Re: picture is geen and does not stay

Lots of trouble with bad picture tubes on that model! Remove the front grill and very gently tap on the neck of the center picture tube near the socket with the back of your screw driver. If the picture flashes back to normal that means the the tube has an internal short. You may hear a snapping noise while tapping and the set may shut off. If the tube is not sensetive to tapping it it possible you have some other type of failure.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

The Power Light is Red

yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

Hitachi 60sdx88b

The flashing red light means that the tv is in protection mode. The tv will not turn on when the red LED is flashing. The most common problem for Hitachi are the convergence output ic's. But they useually do not cause the LED to flash. This tv does also have a problem with Q777 going bad. This will cause the LED to flash. If Q777 is bad the horizontal circuit needs to be modified. This must be done by a tech.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
