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.

10 years is about life for these, booming noise like a gun shoot?

How do I fix My 50 inch Hitachi Ultravision TV?

Likely the lamp in the set has failed here which does make sense if the picture was dim before---a lot of lamps just before failing all the way dim down.

TV Exploded

Sounds like the DLP lamp failed. You can decipher the Hitachi flashing red light. That should help to be sure.
The DLP lamp replacement is fairly straightforward and can be done with minimal tools

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,
