Question about Hitachi 42HDM12 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Picture rolls down the screen very fast and cannot be watched - worse with sky

For some strange reason the picture appears to be rolling from top to bottom. Its rolls very fast as if it is on a reel.
It is worse with sky on and cannot be watched at all.
With sky turned on the picture goes from top to bottom very fast but with sky off the analogue tv picture goes from bottom to top.
We have checked all the cables and wires and cannot see a problem anywhere.
It was fine until we plugged in a video cable last night from the pc.
I am desperate to get this sorted as we wont have any tv over xmas
please help

Top of creeen rolls over and back down from the top about 3"

There is a capacitor in the vertical circuit that has significantly changed value causing this. If you are familiar with these units, look for a capacitor with the value of around 100ufd that is part of the vertical circuit and change it. That should resolve it. If you bring this to a shop, expect a parts cost up to $10.

The picture rolls vertically sometimes.

I would check the capacitors in the verticle deflection circuit. Also try resoldering the verticle output as well as the verticle yoke pins where they connect to the chassis. Mitsubishi has had some trouble with their capacitors, you may have one that is leaking. Let me know if I can help you further.

Rolling screen

This may be a vertical hold control problem I'm not sure where the Vert. Hold potentiometer is on the mainboard. I would see if you can find someone who can locate it and adjust it.

Akai DHT300 screen rolling

The picture is rolling because there is no sync signal in the composite output. Are you using the RCA jack or the S-video output? Is there another small TV you could hook up for a test to see if the problem appears there? If it does, then the Akai has the issue and needs to be examined further. If not, the TV input may have an issue. You didn't say what the TV is but there is the possibility the video input is looking for external sync from the DVD but that's a bit of a stretch. Can you feed a different source into the video input of the TV to see if you get the same result? Hope this helps.
