you have a very unhappy tv...sounds like you have a relay clicking, or worse, something about to fail. the led pulsing is a warning signal, and going pure red means that you have a major failure inside the box.

you doing the service yourself, or open to a service pro coming in for this?

Hitachi 57G500A DTV & upcoming analog to digital changeover

To answer your direct question, yes it has a digital tuner. To answer your real question, NO it WILL NOT receive the new ATSC (digital) broadcast stations. The tuner itself is a digital one but works only for analog signals. The changeover in February will change the broadcast signals to a new digital format that will require a converter for your set to continue to function. Please note that the converter is only required if you receive your signal from rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If connected to cable or satelite, no change will be seen and no converter is needed.

To simplify:

Over air reception = need converter
Cable or satelite = no converter

Toshiba 36HF71 has sound but no picture

Same problem with mine. Relays click, sound, no picture and a flashing power LED. I finally found a schematic online. I went through the high voltage circuits and found the power transistor 2SC5570 was shorted out. There is also a pico fuse in that area but my was not open. I replaced the transistor and prayed the flyback transformer was not shorted. It wasn't, I'm watching my old 36" right now. Not a bad fix (17.00) bucks. Wonder what a service tech would have charged ;)

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.

Pulsating power LED. No picture. No sound

Either the main smoothing capacitor or the voltage regulator are faulty. You may find that the power LED will stay on after pulsating for several minutes, at which time you can switch the TV on.

No Picture, No Sound...Please Help

The most common problem this set has is the Horizontal Output shorting, usually caused by the High Voltage transformer drawing to much current. Whether it's the high voltage circuit or the power supply, having a tech look at this set would not be cost effective. Start looking at the newer technology. Hope this helped.
