Tv wont turn on

I just got this Hitachi 55 in. for free from my boss. He had it since it was new in 1999. It work fine up to a couple of days ago. I took the back of and pluged it in and all the green leds start to light up then they will turn off and the red protection led starts to flash. I was wondering if you had an idea of what it might be.

Re: Tv wont turn on

The local shop charged my $400 picked up repaired, cleaned and returned to home. I was worth it because of all the outdated support equipment I'd be tempted to change with a new LCD or plasma.

Re: Tv wont turn on

I paid to have one of the experts on this page help me with my Hitachi 55 in, and all they would recommend was to replace the Convergence Amplifiers. I read elsewhere, that this TV has a habitual problem with fuse E994 and a capacitor c707. I just replaced both for a little more than $5.00, and the TV came back to life!!!! I'll try to find the web page that I referenced for the repair, and let you know.

hey there it sounds like the problem is coming from your ballast board, the ballast board is the power source to the lamp. with time this part starts to wear out and get weak your old lamp is already burning out there for it does not need that much voltage to turn on but the new lamp has not been worn out or used there for it needs the ballast to be working at 100%

hope this solution helps

Good Day, richardyoung;

Lack of vertical reflection? Does this happen on all channels? Can you change channels and the picture size changes? Are you receiving a HD signal? Have you tried changing the format?

I hate to ask you all these questions but I need to understand your concern completely. If you answered some of questions above yes / no; your TV might be okay. But try them.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

No power

The straight answer is you need a new flyback transformer model number FBT2436493A. No need to check anything, just get one and have someone qualified in soldering put it in. Don't go poking around in the unit, their are capacitors that are charged with a couple thousand volts. It can kill you.
