Re: watching tv and it turn off

Have you tried unpluging it and plug it back in?
there is a service bulletin out for this set i would have this done first!
This update covers to the following Hitachi models and chassis
46UX50B/51K, 50UX52B/53K, 60UX54B/55K, 50SBX70B, 60SBX72B, 70SBX74B. All projection televisions using the AP73 & 74 chassis's From Dennis Viereck
Intermittent loss of Raster, On Screen Display, sometimes sound. BUT ALWAYS HAS HIGH VOLTAGE! Also removing power and reapplying it again restores operation.
THE PROBLEM: There is a lack of a secondary ground for the CRT Dag connected to each CRT board. You can identify this missing ground on the CRT board by locating two vacant pins on each CRT driver board near the CRT socket. The connector is named P801, P831, and P861 relative to each board. The pin nearest the socket is the ground pin in question. The pin furthest from the socket is connected to the cathode of the CRT.

OBJECTIVE: Run a separate ground wire from the "GROUND" pin on each CRT board to the chassis ground. You can use the circuit board mounting screw on the frame under the green CRT. See drawing below.
DIRECTIONS: Obtain 3 wires 10, 14, and 18 inches long. The wire is 18 gauge stranded with an insulated jacket. Attach one wire to each ground pin on the CRT socket. Choose the correct length of wire so that all wires will connect to the circuit board mounting screw near the center of the chassis frame.

EXPLANATION: The extra ground is needed if an internal arc occurs in the CRT. This energy must find a path to ground. Before, the only path to ground is through the signal ground wire on the RGB drive connector. This thin wire does not go directly to chassis ground and is inadequate ground for the CRT dag. If the energy level of the discharge is high enough it may corrupt the data flow on the data & clock lines or negatively effect the OSD microprocessor. Since electricity takes the shortest path to ground, the additional ground wire will route the majority of that static pulse to chassis ground quicker and reduce the possibility of corrupting operation of the OSD processor.

Did my tv just blow up?

Yes, I think you have lost the bulb and maybe the color wheel is on the way out too. But try a bulb first. If the old one has a broken "glass tube" in the center--be assured it is bad.

When turning on the TV, I hear a banging/grinding sound.


If you hear a grinding,whirling,spining or buzzing sound, that sounds to me like the COLOR WHEEL,the reason for that is because your color wheel spins at 5,000 rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance of the disc can cause different things,Unfortionatelly the only way to check that the color wheel is working properlyis you need to check it out physically

I did some research and I found the color wheel at DM;

Please keep us posted.

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.
