Won't come on

I have a Hitachi model 50EX8K Big Screen that I bought new in 1994. It has never given me any type of problem. Last night, I turned it off and went to bed. This morning, I turned it back on... it clicks, but, doesnt light up. I tried the power..It's on. Even the small red indicator light on the front panel doesn't light up???? Can you help me? Thank's, Rock in SC

Re: won't come on

Replace Ic 901 (STR-M6511) and check for bad capacitors in the power supply.

I have a Hitachi model 50ex8k in the left hand corner where the pip would apear there is a box with different color horizontal line that wont go awayr

Does the PIP button do anything to / for the box? It is just that it is tuned to an input with no signal, you should be able to remove it though with the PIP button...

Let me know what the PIP button does, if nothing that's very strange, but let me know and I can help you fix it.

I have a Hitachi 50EX8K. I believe I have a convergence problem. Colors are blurred, and the picture is pulled in near the center at the top and bottom of the screen. It would happen rarely, and recover...

Sounds like a convergence failure, it was initially probably just loose connections but now it needs new parts, here is a tutorial I made:
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I have a Hitachi 50EX8K projection TV that will not turn on. When you hit the power button you can hear a "click" but nothing happens. I have some electrical knowledge and could use some help pointing me...

if this is projection tv that clicking sound it could be the ballast tryin to turn on a burned out lamp or the ballast could not be sending the right amount of voltage for ignition, you can check the ballast if its liking oil or if you see something burned in the board.

Our Hitachi tv turns on okay but the picture on comes in for 2-3 seconds and then the screen goes black. Last night the tv work just fine but this problem started today as I turned the tv on to watch...

I don't know what model you have,but... I have a 50v715 and it was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the lamp. So if you have not replaced the lamp in a while then it could just be it time. Hope this is helpful.

Picture has a blue shadow

Seems convergence out IC is fried in TV so it gives blue shadow.

Check out Convergence Out IC which you need to replace in TV, if you have enough experience of repair of big TV, necessary tools and know basic electronics.

Projection TV turns off for a few seconds

Good Day, boattech1;
To my understanding the Model 53UDX10B is a rear projection, that uses no fans. I think maybe your LAMP may be getting weak.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
