Re: hitachi 51s 500 ultravision hdtv

Found these on different forums:
I know there are some things to watch with respect to IC401, a good place to
be looking for a problem like this. Also there is a mod for micro lockup
and related problems. The servicer should know about these issues.

also found this:
unplug one of those CRT boards, and plug it back in, and
voila the TV works... but if it is closed and left overnight, chances are
in the morning it will will turn on again... giving the same problem..

Blue screen and the colors have been off for a while. We replace tbe light bulb last year. What else can it be?

this is a bad light engine, a costly part of the set, the heart of the tv. sometimes you can clean it out, but usually on the hitachi's it needs a whole new one, estimates run from 500-1000, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

TV turns on for 2 second and then it is off

Your TV may have detected an error. Try first to have the TV unplugged overnight just to clear it out then observe it after turning it back on.
