Re: 50 inch rear projection hitachi

Hi Roy
This problem can be a number of things. First I would say, check to see if Fan Exhaust on back is blocked. It must be atleast a 2 inch min. If this is ok then, There are a few parts inside you could change starting with I-901 and C-958. For more info you can visit

Hitachi 50V500, no picture ,sounds for about 15 sec.then goes off


I would try to re-seat the lamp. Pull the lamp out, check it to see if it may have gone bad again, then put it back in to make sure the contacts are connected. Before applying power, unplug the TV for 5 minute, and then plug in/turn it on.

Most lamps, if bad from the factory, will go out within 3 months of use. It does happen, and happens more often than you would think.

Try this, and see what happens. Good luck.

Hitachi power light blinking

Does anyone know how to fix this very common Hitachi problem without paying a repair man? And if you did pay a repair man did they fix the problem, and how much was it? I absolutely LOVED this TV before this happened. :(

Hitachi lcd 50" model 50V500A - turn off & on

Best advice I have is to price shop for lamp online using lamp or model number. Now it could be lamp or ballast or dmd causing this. But most common is lamp and you will need one sometime anyway. Very easy to change. Also probably a parts dist. in your area stocks it. Good luck.
