Hitachi 50vs810. Blinking Temp light. No picture No sound.

Spoke to a local repair shop. The tech told me that there is a wiring harness that has four fans on it. One of the four fans has failed. The complete harness needs to be replaced. There is another risk. Depending on the state of the TV when the fan failed, it might have cost you a bulb as well. The tech quoted me $250 to $300 to repair the television. Add about $120 more for a bulb.

My tv picture turns all blue in about 2 minutes after the television comes on.

I'm afraid, it is problem of blue picture tube in your tv that will be replaced to solve this problem.
Since tv is an old model so it is quite possible that blue picture tube would not be available any more, call local tv repair shop for blue picture tube replacement, if available somewhere, as it is not user level fix and experienced tech can do it.

I have 60 inch zenith inteq projection TV no picture or sound it powers up fine took it to a repair shop tech guy said that a whole board need to be replaced but the board is a discontinued item said it...

May be you went to the wrong place, find another repair shop where they work that brand and type of tv. Doubtless, some parts are discontinued, but they will take parts of another equipment that are dismantled. Good luck.

If this is a ws-65411: it sounds like one of the two STK-392-110 convergence IC's is bad; you need to have both replaced at the same time; I do this type of repair(done hundreds of them) and most can be done right in your home.

The two ic's can be purchased on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping.

This is the slow time of year for TV repair shops--find someone in your area who knows how to do this kind of repair---here shops charge 3-4 hundred but I charge 200-250 total depending on brand of set.

Shop around and if they insist on "taking set to shop" keep looking---any good tech can do this repair in your home---MAKE SURE HE CHANGES BOTH of the IC's!

I do this here for free so if this has been helpful give me a vote here.

No picture

humm from the sound of a loud pop that would tell me you have a high voltatge problem. at the shop i have seen when i replaced tubes in this set that when the tubes are unbalenced (screen voltages) then sound will come up with no picture. then the tubes warm up and the picture comes up. this is an idication that one of the tubes have gone bad. and now that it has completly failed i suspect it has taken the horizontal ouput transistor and possilby flyback tranforner, NOW what all that tech talk means? not good im sorry. but in my opion this set is not good. these set cost about 800 new at your local walmart. We charge at my shop bout 600 to 700 for such a repair..of course u may get a tech to look at it and find something simple. but i feel this is the case if you have any more qestion feel free to email me or ask again here
