Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

55HDX62 I have Hitachi 55HDX62,plasma. Has not been working for about a month. We had a phillips touch screen remote control. My daughter dropped it and shattered the screen. The next day the TV screen is black. The tv will power up but nothing else functions. The buttons on the side of the tv do not work; menu, input, output. There was a service tech guy came out removed the back of the tv after 2 hours he said he thought it was the LCD panel, but said there was nothing else he could do in the house There are no lines running through the tv, just black. We've had an extremely difficult time with the warranty company. They've decided to issue us the exact tv, but it's refurbished. A bit weary. Wondering if we should just have this tv repaired, pay for it ourselves. What does the problem sound like to you???

Re: 55HDX62

First of all if the "technician" said the LCD panel possibly but this is a plasma then BOOT that tech, he/she doesn't know what they are doing. You probably have a bad logic board as I have seen with a few Hitachis. This is obvious to a TV tech because the logic boards on Hitachis have LED's on them to indicate their condition. I would get a second opinion on this repair. Avoid the person who thinks its the LCD panel when it's a plasma TV.

Contact the authorized service center for Hitachi. This is not a user repairable fault.

Sound no picture

Sounds like a capacitor has blown or something has short out.

Inputs will not change with remote with my Harmont reomte

It will be difficult to match any other universal remote with this model Hitachi set. You have to get the original remote control to select all the functions with this TV. If your original remote control doesn't work at all, just buy a new one. You can get it from the authorised service center for Hitachi at your town. OK.

I currently have my 55HDX62 Hitachi Plasma wall mounted. I am moving the unit to another location and wish to place it on top of a TV Stand. I do not currently have the table stand which came with the unit...

Even you find it the shipping won't be cheap. They do make universal stands for LCD/PLASMA TVs. You may want to see at Walmart or a similar store if they carry the universal stand.
About a year ago a customer brought a 55" Panasonic plasma TV to our shop, and we asked him to bring the TV with the stand he found out his wife, trashed it and he made a nice stand out of pieces of wood. If you keep looking on ebay you may be able to it.

Best of luck

The screen needs replacing if cracked. It is usually cheaper to buy a new TV than get it repaired.
