Question about Hitachi 60SX12B/13K 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV will not turn on. Shuts down by itself.

The problem originally was it would shut down at anytime while operating by itself. No problem, just turn the tv power back on. It progressively got worse where it may do this 2 or 3,4 times a day. Now the set will not go back on at all ,or if your lucky enough where power stays on it eventually looses power and shuts down. After taking a look in back of set with cover off, I do have a red light on which tells me that there is no problem with the power to the set, but nothing else. I really like this tv and works great otherwise, but do not want to spend a great deal of money if it is not worth it! Please help me and give your advice on what could be wrong with the set.

Re: TV will not turn on. Shuts down by itself.

These Hitachi models are a bear but this may be the fix: Regulator STRM 6511 and C915. A good tv repairman should know this. This should be changed first before determining that the high voltage transformer is bad which is likely to be the worse case senario and may not be available anymore.

Tv turns off for a minute and comes back on

if tv turns On itself after shuts down then its symptom of weak lamp as current lamp is reaching to end of its working life, tv requires lamp replacement.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and its easy. Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture.

Tv shuts itself down

This is due to bad caps read here what a cap is see you tv is getting hot as normal but the caps cannot stand it any more thus shutting the tv down. The bad caps would be more or less in the power supply unit of this TV. So you can buy a new psu or get it repaired by a expert.

TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.

One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

Tv shuts itself off

The power supply may be going on to protection mode. This is usualy because one of the scan amplifiers may have failed, or something is taking too much current and forcing the power supply to shut down.

Tv problems

Unplug the three red-blue-green plugs nest to the convergence amps. If the unit powers up and stays on the picture will look bad but will confirm that the convergence amps have failed...
Replacing the amps and one or more resistors in the yoke return will restore the set to normal operation..
Use only Sanyo original Ics..
