Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

My 50" hitachi ultravision won't turn on

Everytime I press the power button, the power light comes on and after a few seconds it comes off, and there is nothing happening. This thing happens to my tv every once a month or twice. But most of the time it happens to my tv, I just keep pressing the power button for about an hour until my tv starts. Do you know any appropriate and easier solution for this problem?

    55vg825 hitachi rear projection won't turn on about 1 in every 10 tries. Usually will after 3 or 4 attempts. Today 20+ attempts and it won't turn on. I unplugged the lamp and plugged it back help.

    I'll phone Hitachi tomorrow.

    I have the ultravision 50vf820. Does the same thing 3 to 4 times a month. This morning took 5 min nothing but blinking of the light . then I had to go to work. Is there a answer???

    I have a 60sx12B/13k that is a 96 model. It too will not come on. I hear the click and see the red light but then nothing. there are lights on the board glowing green.

    Hate to trash it even though it is dated because it had such a great picture.

    I see ideas of testing picos and cold solder joint as a culprit. Is there a manual on internet that lists where these fuses are on my mode. Also if I just put the board in the oven on high for a few hours will that fix the cold joints(ha).

    I have this same exact problem with my UltraVision 50UX19K. At first it started just sporadically. Now, I don't think that the TV's worked since April of 2008. I'm bummed. Was given to me by mom, (me step-dad bought it new in the nineties) and I have been watching this tv for over 12 years. Want to get it fixed, but not sure if it's possible, and don't really want to go out and pay 2 grand or more for a tv of comparable size (it's 52 inches).

    I HAVE A 10 year old Hitachi 70" Ultravision Model #70SBX74B. For months I have had an annoying flickering of the picture which seemed like a bad cable somewhere. It seemed to get worse or occur more often or on que when writing was flashed on the screen, or when I brought up information through the info button on my cable control. I changed out wires and the problem persisted. It occured when I played a DVD from a separate DVD player or program from cablevision. Picture and sound otherwise was always excellent.
    Yesterday I had the TV on and left the room and when I returned it was off. I am unable to turn it on at all now. The outlet is good, and when the power cord is pulled and then reincerted after a few seconds, the red POWER LED will light momentarily along with some Green LED's on the main board inside the cabinet, then they all go dark. No sound or video is ever present. Any ideas. I am technically capable of working on the TV but I would need some direction. I want to guess that something in the power circuit which had been a slightly intermittant (flickering) problem has finally failed altogether. Is this possible and /or do you have any idea?
    Thanks in advance.

Power On, Fans start but stop in few seconds and that's all

May be there is a problem in the windows, but suppose it is not booting at all.

First Check once more your boot options from bios menu
Second If it still the same thing, extract your battery out of your laptop for 12 min, then try to power up your laptop pluging in your power cable(don't use your battery)
Third If it still not working, there must be a problem in your cooling fan, so check it, also check your motherboard & your graphics card (Most of this problems happens due to a problem in the computer cooling system in motherboard & graphics card)

Hope it works for you Christos

Will not power on

Unplug it; pull out the battery; with the battery out of the laptop, press the power button for a few seconds; let it sit for a few minutes. Then reinstall the battery and see if it powers up. This method doesn't always work but I've seen it work on more than one occasion.

Camera won't switch on

I thought the batteries had worn out because when I press the 'on' button the 'busy' light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out and nothing happens. Have changed batteries and checked installed correctly.
Any ideas please?

TV will not turn on

There are a few reasons that this could be happening first one is maybe the lamp died on you, Afraid there is no way to test this other than replacing the lamp. The second problem may be 5 capacitors on the power supply that hold the 12 volt line low and do not allow the light engine to start properly.
First thing you have to do is listen to how it trys to start, It should sound like this, first when you hit the power switch there may be a click then within five seconds the fans then a few seconds more you may here a sparking noise, if all this is happening then you most likely just have a bad lamp
