Well, thats 12 years ago...and in human years that a blink of an TV years, its a lifetime. It sounds as though the power supply is leaking AC into the circuits.
That being 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 $150 that is bigger, and looks better than my dead what are MOST people going to do. Ok, I know...a wal-Mart TV isnt probibly going to last as long as your old a matter of fact, it will probibly last only about 4-6 years, but, it costs probibly a quarter of what you paid for your original TV, and only a bit more than you will pay for your TVs repair.
Even a small repair is going to take 2 hours, and at 35-45$ a 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!

The problem is the crystal that locks color on frequency, or the color processor ic. To rule out interference hook a VCR or DVD player to the tv and check picture.

I have a 50inch DLP Hitachi that is 3 and a half years old. I replaced the bulb about 5 months ago now the blacks are blueish and it has a greenish blotch on the screen. It also leaves an image on the...

Contrary to popular belief, any display product can have "Image Retention" and even "Burn-In". This is true for Plasma, LCD, LCOS, DLP, and CRT. I do not see a model number provided, but I would bet that you have an LCD rear projection TV rather than a DLP projection TV. If this is the case, the Blueish and Greenish blotches you are seeing on the screen are the result of UV light damage. UV light will move heavily damage the Blue panel, due it's short wave length. So, bad Blue or Green (absence or Blue) is typically the the first visual indicator of a problem. Replacing the Light Engine will resolve the problem.

Hitachi Ultravision Digital TV dark picture

Looks like

1. A Cold solder in the Video Output stage power supply.

2. A bad Electrolytic Capacitor in the above Video Output stage.

I generally do not waste time in attempting to locate faulty capacitors. There will be only 6-8 pf them in the above stage / section,m and the klot of them would collectivelyt not cost more than 3-4 $ equivalent, in india. Just blindly replace the lot, and the set is ready in 30 mins.

Dunno how much they will cost in your country. Try to look for a 100mfd, 160V Capacitor. Close your eyes and replace. generally does the trick.

Hitachi 32 No Picture or sound

if you are hearing a click and electrical statics when you try to turn it ON, the flyback of the tv is busted there are alot of reasons for that problem lighting is one so dont leave the cable screwed in if ever youre going out for a long time. you can have it replaced by a technician ( flyback). but it would cost you. and im not sure if you can find an orginal flyback considering its 10years old. there are replacement flybacks but quality would not be as good as the original one.

Pulsating power LED. No picture. No sound

Either the main smoothing capacitor or the voltage regulator are faulty. You may find that the power LED will stay on after pulsating for several minutes, at which time you can switch the TV on.
