Just curious... since the Hitachi 50UX57B projection TV does not have any lamps in it, exactly which "lamp" did you replace? Did you actually replace the entire blue CRT itself?

It is most likely a fan (there are 2 to 3 of them in the set) that is making the noise. I doubt seriously that the lamp is causing a buzzing noise. The only other buzzing sound can come from the ballast wich powers the lamp.

SOURCE: Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...

SOURCE: Hitachi 50VF820 (LCD projection)randomly turns

I believe I may have solved this problem by putting a small fan blowing on the intake of the Lamp fan. I put the fan in place and the TV has not turned off randomly since. That was only a day ago so I'll see if it is a permanent fix. If so I will probably try to mount the fan on the back of the TV out of sight.

Mine did the same thing 3 times now. Each time the tech put in a new Light Engine (not a lamp). At least it was under an extended coverage.

Hitachi LCD M50VS810 -- picture gradually darkened up over the past 4 days and now picture won't come on. Replace bulb?

If it uses a lamp that is possible---sets with a lamp will often dim down just before the lamp fails in a total way.

I have a sony xbr lcd projection tv . it goes on and off all the time . like every two min . and the standby light comes on. model KF-50XBR800

Its symptom of weak lamp that reaches to end of its working hours life span. If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years then replace it to fix tv problem.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual.
Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.

I have a question, We bought our Hatchi 50 inch tv 3 years ago

The manufacturer normally doesn't count the lamp for the warranty, but call them definitely worth checking w/ the manufacturer. Otherwise if you need to buy a lamp you can try they have FREE trouble shooting available so you can check to make sure it is the lamp.

Hitachi rear projection lcd lp500 series

It is likely the projection lamp is weak, causing the picture to cycle on and off. Take the lamp out and examine the reflector. If it is dull and cloudy, it's time to replace the lamp. A new lamp will have a reflector that is shiny and looks like a mirror. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
