My Hitachi L42VC04UB replaced a failed power board .The television comes on and after a short time it shuts down and the standby light in the front of the television flashes blue and red .This happe


Well either the TV's main (or other) board overloads the power board and it shuts itself off or the power board itself shuts itself off for whatever reason or the main board shuts off for whatever reason.

With the setup you have I'd say it's probably going to be difficult to figure out which one it is.

You will want to have yet another board - either main or power - to eliminate one of the two most likely possibilities.

What did you do with the original power board?

If you keep it you can probably send it to us for repair....or if it's cheap enough just buy another one.

i don't think there's an easier and affordable way to narrow it down than using a third board.

If you have replaced the Lamp then its a good chance that the Ballast Board also needs to be replaced ,it is what powers the Lamp on.

My KP-51HW40 clicks off after running for a period. The red power light blinks when it goes off but screen stays dark. When TV is shut off for a while it restarts and runs fine. The "On"...


Hi,
KP-51HW40 shuts off due to incorrect white balance and blue arch lines is an evidence of that incorrect white balance. I hope tv standby red light would flashing 5 times then 3 seconds pause and again 5 times when tv shuts down.
This is rear projection tv that has three picture tubes (red-green-blue) inside to generate picture that projected at front screen. These three picture tubes must be drive with correct drive voltage to produce good picture of each color.
Solution for your tv problem is Screen Voltage adjustment that can be done easily if you are handy with electronics stuff repair.
Let me know your expertise level to guide you more and if you feel unconformable by tv repair then local tv repairman will help you to adjust white balance in tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional questions.
Thanks.

The yukon NVMT 4 was turned ON and then flashed. Cover was on. Now the ON lights, IR Light works but visor is all grey and appear small lighting on bottom corner.


The scope may flicker or flash when used in a bright environment. To fix this you should only use a NVMT in a dark. It will restore itself in a few minutes or hours, depending on how long it has been exposed to light.
It may also flicker for the first several seconds of use in dark, before the device corrects itself.
With a severe exposure to bright light for prolonged time the light enhancing unit may damage beyond repair.

RCA 32V434T (32'') TV has no Red or Green pixels, only Blue


The color problems are caused by cracked/broken solder joints on the circuit that controls the display.  Usually this is located at the back of the tube on a small circuit board. Your description suggests that only the blue signal circuit is intact. I suggest these joints be resoldered for more strength.
It's a possibility that another IC senses this problem (or another one) and then shuts down the system.
Resolder those joints and see what happens.

Please someone help me with my tv


ok i see alot of these at the shop( i have one in front of me right now) The rca itc22 chasis is bad about this.. If the processor finds any problems it will shut it down. THe big problem it can be one of about 20 different things. As the customer the first thing you can do is unplug the set and leave it of 30 min to an hour. then try it again. ( I have yet to see this work) There are some basic assumptions that you can make.. if you see the light flash then it wont be a fuse. the processor is getting power. This is where a technicain starts his troubleshooting. You said it would shut itself down every once in awile... could be a bad connection or a component that finally overheated then failed. The processor on this set records errors so a technician can read these with special computer interface equipment. repairs on the set generally run 150 to 500. These sets are about 800 new at walmart so you have to make the decision to repair
