Question about Hitachi 57TWX20B 57" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 57TWX20B powers on ( but no picture or sound)

Worked fine last 7 days. Had a few electrical storms in the past couple days. Had multiple power outages over 1 evening.
Now the set comes on by oush botton on front. the RED light comes on & you can hear the initial Crackle noise that this set always made, but NOTHING comes on, no sound, no menus via the control panel or either remote. the remote will NOT turnthe TV off but it will turnthe TV ON.
I have discounted antenna and reconnected and disconnected power, let it sit a few min. the plugged it in again.
Possible found on blogs could be Convergence is fried, but shouldthat not allow soudn to work? ro at least give some sort of visual projection even it is just color blotches.
Also foudn possible power supply, but would this not allow the red power light to come ont he on-off button.
A PC tech said check the Cooling fan as it could be dirty and drawing so much juice that it is not allow the TV to power up.
ANy help or direction to determine professional reapir would be appreciated.

    I noticed in morning when I woke uppower had been off because of the clock, when I went to turn TV on that same day nothing happened as if the batteries in remote were dead, so I replaced them and I as able to get red light on but no picture. and after looking around back notice many lights are on inside the TV but still no picture at all. Also as if remote still did not work again to turn power on or off, bu you can turn power on and off manually

    I had a guy come over to put that new fios t.v. connection, he connected the hdmi input plus all the other input wires to the same input connection. Basicly he connected the hdmi , the y p b input, as well as the basic wire inputs all into the vid 1 jacks. Could that have damaged the or overloaded anything.

F you had multiple power outages, i would contact the power company or/and insurance company and it should be covered under that, but sounds like power supply problem if you had power surges
if lighting cause it then it could be anything.

This can be one of two problems. 1: convergence output ic's need to be replaced. 2: The problem is in the power supply, most likely a power diode.

Both problems you will need to take it two a repair shop.
