Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 53SDX89BA Can we get a copy of the owner's manual (one guy on this site said he could get it from Hitachi in PDF)? I also have one question: A technician told us the screen may not be capable of getting the high definition - is that true? This was purchased under the assumption that it was HD ready. Thanks, Terry

Re: Hitachi 53SDX89BA

I also have a Hitachi 53SDX89BA and I bought it with the same assumption as you: that it's HD ready. The specs in the manual states the following: "Full 1080i HDTV Capatable with Set-Top Box". I beleive this means that it does not include an HD tuner, but that it is capable of handling up to 1080i resolution. Normal (non-HD) resolution on this TV is 480i.

So here's my problem: Until recently, I wasn't using the HD settings on this TV because I don't have a set top box, nor do I subscribe to any HD content from my cable provider. However, I just purchased an XBox 360 along with an XBox 360 HD-DVD player (it's an XBox peripheral that works with the game console). The Xbox asks you to choose the resolution output (480i, 720i or 1080i) to match your TV's HD capabilities. When I select 1080i output and change my TV's settings to receive an HD signal, the picture quality is amazing. However, the video signal seems to get lost ocassionally (i.e. TV picture gets scrambled) but then it comes right back. This does not happen when I select a 480i output on the Xbox...but of course, the picture isn't as crisp and clear as a 1080i picture.

I don't know if this is a problem with the TV or with the Xbox. Has anybody else had this problem??

I would like to order an owners manual and remote

I have found a couple of sites where you can download the owners manual for a fee of $9.99 but I have been unable to find a site where it is free. Hitachi web site does have several owner manuals but do not have the one for this tv. My owners manual is a photo copy of the original manual. I got mine by calling Hitachi (1-800-448-2244) shortly after purchasing the TV, it was a display model and did not come with one. I have just bought my second remote, first one when I got the owners manual and second one just a couple of weeks ago through sears parts. Once I get a scanner hooked up I will try to upload my manual to this site.

If you would like the service manual, go to and scroll down to 01-21-08 29842400 pdf.gif Hitachi 46Ux50B.pdf
this is the "service" manual for Hitachi models 46UX50B/51K, 50UX52B/53K, 60UX54B/55K, 50SBX70B, 60SBX72B, 70SBX74B. These are the same model numbers listed on the owners manual.

I hope this helps someone out. Shera
