Question about Hitachi 43FDX15B 43" Rear Projection Television
43FDX15B 43 in. Rear Projection Television
I was having problems with the convergence IC's so I replaced them, reinstalled the board and the TV worked great! For about one movie...
After that first movie I turned off the TV and when I turned it on again the next day I had no picture and could not get the TV to turn off at all.
Since this was the original problem, I ordered another set of convergence IC's took them to a repair shop to have a technician replace them, he said the convergence IC's were fine so I reinstalled the board.
The red power light stays on, I get no picture, no sound... nothing other than that little sound it makes when you first turn it on/plug it in. If I unplug the set, wait 30 seconds - two days and plug it back in it makes the same sounds it used to make when you first turned it on but nothing beyond that.
Further inspection on the inside shows one Red LED next in the center right next to the back of the TV glowing. Four Green LED's (behind the red one - closer to the screen) and these would be on the board to the left of the convergence circuts. On the power board (where the power actually comes in from the wall there is also a Red LED... all LED's are glowing. I checked the board connectors and no wires are touching on any of the 4 connectors bridging to the convergence board.
Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

You can try replacing the convergence IC's ...should cost you about 350-400$..Its your choice at the end of the day,,It could also be that the lamp is blown and you will need it to be replaced. Best option..call a tech and get a quote and then decide..
