Re: Hitachi 51F510 HDTV Hit by lightning

The steps that need to be taken on fixing this set start with the standby voltage requirement. Is it there? next is the low voltage loop from the transformer, also a requirement for the set to come on. ...accordianman

Won"t stay on

Something is out of tolerance in the horizontal deflection circuit. You should try resoldering the horizontal output and driver transformer. If that doesnt help you will need to troubles shoot the deflection circuits. If you need a link to get a good quality service manual for your model let me know and I will post a link.
