Question about Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 42" plasma 4 yrs old

Plasma works fine but there is a fluttering noise when you turn it on! Been to repair and first told it was a coil at a cost of £200 but now been told it's a board and will cost £500. Am I being ripped off!!

I have the 55HDS52 and it flickered like crazy. The firmware was V0101.0001 and I called Circuit City and they sent a tech out with the latest fimware for my TV which is V0102.0001 and now the flicker is gone. I kept my settings all the same and watched the same reference scenes over and over and could not get it to flicker anymore. I'll post if anything changes but it seems that this worked for me. please have a look at THIS very long forum on Hitachi Plasma Noise

    flicker flutter, more info on your tv

    Service Menu: This can be accessed by pressing Menu, Menu, 8, Select. This needs to be done fairly quickly and usually 2 times in a row. Like others have said, don't mess around in here. It's only good use (for me at least) is that this is where the hour counter is housed



    and another forum



    sounds to me they expected it to be the coil and that didnt work so now they need to change the board, will they gaurentee that this will be the absolute fix, one would hope so, not sure if your being ripped off, but are you willing to pay that much to have it fixed, if it is only at power on, put up with it, or sell it, 500 pound seems to be a lot of $$$, find out what board and price it yourself

I have a 2006 Hitachi Ultravision 42 inch plasma


plasma tv units use a lot of power ,well into the hundreds of watts 9 some big screens use up to 800 watts to work)
I suggest that you consider a new led unit which uses barely any power and you will get a remote with it

The screen on my 4 yr old 42 inch LG plasma keeps


I believe that you are experiencing an intermittent problem with what's called your florescent lamp ballast. The best thing is that it can be repaired/fix. There should be a LG repair shop in your area. Cheaper to bring it in than have a service tech come to your residence.
Should be between $200 to $300 for a repair.

520.00!? Sounds like he's going to replace the entire plasma module-the buffer chips can't be replaced individually. Tell him to resolder the chip resistors on the COF boards before you fork out that kind of cash. This model's notorious for cold solder...
