Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture Flicker I am having a problem with my picture.. When the picture is bright it is OK., but when the picture is in a dark setting, like at night, or when credits are rolling, it Flickers. Picture is still sharp, and HD is very clear. It also does it with DVD's and Regular TV. I have used different power outlets, and different cords as far as componant, and HDMI, but the same result.  Thank you for your help in this matter.. Matt

Screen flickering

A number of possible reasons--from brightness/contrast set too high to a issue with the power supply of the set--a expert would have to examine the set--you might want to call Sony to see if known issue with this model.

My tv's screem is little dark

If you set the lamp mode to LOW POWER, each time you turn ON the TV the lamp will start out at HIGH BRIGHT mode, but will switch to Low Power mode after a short period of time. You may notice a change in screen brightness when this happens. This is not a malfunction.
Just check whether you have selected this mode. Go to its user manual [P57]. All details are there about the lamp brightness settings. If it is not set to Low Power and still you get a dim picture, the lamp may be weak and has to be repaced. OK.

Picture is very dark on all channels. Settings have not changed. Do I need to replace the bulb?

You may need a drive PCB. This PCB can cause the picture to be too bright, no brightness or picture too dark, intermittantly or permanantly. Do check the bulb though and see if it is foggy looking or dull especially if it has not been changed. Thanks for using Fixya.

Picture is dark

Adjust video settings:
  1. Press Wega Gate
  2. Select Settings
  3. Highlight Video
  4. Press + to select
  5. Adjust/increase the brightness.
  6. Press Wega gate to exit.
If picture is still dark, you need to replace the lamp again. Sony recommends that you replace the lamp:
  1. After approximately 8,000 hours of use.
  2. When the screen becomes dark or the color becomes unusual.
  3. When the lamp indicator on the front of the TV flashes.

Dark Picture after being on a short time

You should clean the pins on the end of the picture tubes. Use a piece of sand paper or emory cloth as the pins are probably tarnished.

Picture is going dark to bright and making a clicking noise

Hi, sounds like you`ll need that tech again, your description sounds like a bad color wheel, if you let it continue and it shatters it can & probably will destroy your light tunnell, sorry for the bad news but now you know not to keep running the set, this is a very common problem with dlp`s and it`s exactly why we tell our customers not to purchase dlp`s, gl, video-tek

Dark picture

I think you have a regulation problem and all the voltage supplies are lower than what they should be,the fact that the picture gets distorted is one thing it lead me to believe that is the problem.This can be caused by a loose conection in the power supply ,I would suggest not to use it until it gets repaired or it might become worst and more expensive.Be careful if you remove the back and try to repair it yourself.
