Well, thats 12 years ago...and in human years that a blink of an eye..in TV years, its a lifetime. It sounds as though the power supply is leaking AC into the circuits.
That being said...now what. The reason that TV repair shops are dropping like flies, is that there is no way to make money in TV repair. The local repair shop here charges $75.00...JUST TO DO A QUOTE. Now, I can mosey down to Wal-Mart, and buy a really nice TV for around $150 that is bigger, and looks better than my dead one...so what are MOST people going to do. Ok, I know...a wal-Mart TV isnt probibly going to last as long as your old one...as a matter of fact, it will probibly last only about 4-6 years, but, it costs probibly a quarter of what you paid for your original TV, and only a bit more than you will pay for your TVs repair.
Even a small repair is going to take 2 hours, and at 35-45$ a hour..it just aint worth it. As well, to keep costs down, most manufacturers are dropping any sort of parts support, or tech support, so specific parts are getting impossible to find.
....its a whole new world...electronically that is!

At what frequency does this router work? The signal is typically very weak at a distance of twenty feet. My cordless phone experiences second-long interruptions when I use it in the part of the house...


This can very well be the case. The Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router is an 802.11b/g wireless access point, which means it operates in the 2.4 GHz spectrum. This is the same frequency that normal cordless phones and microwaves utilize.

See also this solution I posted regarding low signal strength.

There are two other ways to avoid interference. You can either change your network to the newer 802.11n standard or exchange your cordless phone to a system that operates in the 5.8 GHz range. I personally went the second way some time ago, because it was less expensive to buy a new phone system (good ones cost ~ 50$) than to exchange my router and all wireless network cards (~ 150$).

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Does it chirp? If so you need convergence chips replaced.

Read the link below.

Yes - You will need to either remove the circuit board or lift up the tray. If you are not sure how to do it yourself read the link below.

  • This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV Makes Chirping Sound

50 inch rear projection Hitachi looks like your watching in 3d


This is a convergence problem and igf you can solder, you can probably fix this yourself. If you feel comfortable working inside the set, and are aware of the dangers of the high voltage present there. try the following: Resolder the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

You may want to find a service shop willing to troubleshoot the power supply vs replacing a $300+ part. Labor will still be a few hundred but parts would be minimal.

It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/50V500/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/UX22201D/New.aspx
