Question about Hitachi 53SDX01B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV popped and now only red light on front blinks.

Had the TV on and plugged a external speaker wire into the internal speaker on the tv. TV popped and everything went dead except for the blinking red light on the front. Is the TV fried?

Yes you most likely hurt the audio processor. tv is now going into protect because of the shorted audio driver.

Tv wont turn on, just red light blinks


From the owner's manual of that model:
If a red light is blinking on the front of the TV, the set has entered protection mode. If this happens it usually means you simplyneed to reset the TV. Unplug the TV for 60 seconds. Then plug the TV in and try to switch it on. If the light is still blinking red,call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-531-0039

Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?
Thanks.

Toshiba 50HX81 projection 'tv- blinking red light


The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

No volume


On the back of your set there are 2 switches that tell the tv whether you are using the internal speakers or the external speakers.
Make sure the switches are set to internal so the speakers in the TV receive the sound signals. If they're set to internal maybe the internal speakers are bad. Set the switches to external and hook up external speakers to the speaker terminals on the back of the TV. If neither setup works then it sounds like an output transistor or related parts.

Sony kdf-60xs955 picture but no sound


Check your TV menu and see if the internal speakers are turned off. Sony opts to cut sound to the internal speakers when you have an external audio amp hooked up for sound, hopefully for obvious reasons. Most audio amp problems inside the TV will result in 9 blinks of the red power light and the TV failing to turn on. If that doesn't help, you may need to have the set repaired.
