Question about Hitachi 50UX26B/27K 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Booming noise I have a 1996 Hitachi Ultravision 50UX26B TV. Recently, it has made a loud booming noise, followed by shutting down the TV. I can wait 10 seconds, turn it back on, and all is well. Do you know what is going on, what is the life expectancy of these TVs, or is it time to bite the bullet and get a new HD? Thank you.

Frig makes a very loud booming noise/ratteling what is the cause?

The noise is coming from the compressor and is a result of a broken support spring inside the compressor. When the unit shuts down, the inner casing rattles against the outer casing because the spring is not there to keep them apart. The only fix is to replace the compressor but otherwise it is just bothersome.

Can`t get clear picture anymore

Hello dhack56,

Can you post a picture of the screen as the TV is playing, this way I can see if the picture is fuzzy, or if the images are split, all of which classify as not a clear picture. A picture of the screen will help with the diagnosis.

Thank you,
