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?

No sound on my new tv?......do I have to have speakers?


Sounds like you are using RCA jack cables and have the sound cable plugged into the wrong spot? Are you using red white and yellow cables? If so check to make sure that the red and white are in the right and left speaker output area on the back of your television. No you dont have to purchase speakers for your tv to have sound. But there may be a switch to flip to go from internal to external speakers. Check the back of the tv to make sure it is not accidentally swtiched to external.

Speakers are mounted on the side of tv (mitsubishi CS 40503 1995 model) want to remove them and have them in a different location


"Speaker: Internal/External" controls which speaker (built-in or external) is available. Set to "Internal" for normal operation of the internal speaker system. When connected to external speakers or an external audio system, the speakers can be turned off by setting this function to "External."

From reading this I see that the speakers may be internal because the setup allows to switch between external or internal. A mounted speaker is either permanent, part of the case, or has something that the speaker case slips into. I had one like that. You simply lift them and set them else where. How far they can be moved will depend on the wire. The wire is either attached internal through the back or attached via connectors on the back. That can either be loose wire or RCA plugs. Normally the wire coming from the speakers is attached internal, making the removal of them impossible. The wire is usually 3 to 6 feet long. You can buy an external speaker wire that has RCA plugs (and or plain wire) that will attach to the existing speaker wire and TV.

Good luck and post back

Red light blinking no picture no sound


tart checking the cable connection to receiver, try moving or replacing cables.

If you have a surround with external speakers check surround connection cable and speakers wiring.

If the cables are OK, then the unit may be faulty.

In that case the fault can be either the audio board (often audio circuit is integrated on the main board) , or the sinput output signal board.
Also a contact on connection to internal speakers can give you same problem.

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.

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.
