Question about Hitachi 50EX20B 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 50" Rear Projection

I have a 50" "Old School" Rear Projection Hitachi TV from 1997. A friend advised that you can clean these from the inside to clear out cobwebs or any dust build-up. The manual doesn't explain how to get inside the cabinet and hoped you guys might know? The back panel has a lot of screws that appear can be removed, but on the front around the screen - can't tell if I pulled hard enough that the front would come off so I could get inside.

Thanks in advance for your help, Kevin

I have a hitachi 50ex20b and you can take off the front speaker cover and go in that way. There is a wood panel that has 5 screws on it and it comes right off. I go in that way to vacuum mine.

Hitachi projection TV does not power up


You probably have a blown 2kV capacitor and 2 amp fuse. Look for signs of black burning inside.

Hitachi has had problems with their light engines. Very expensive. Contact Hitachi as they may give you consideration even if this is out of warranty.

Will not turn on


I had this same problem. Apparently it's fairly common with these older Hitachi Ultravision TVs. There is a bad fuse and capacitor. If you are willing to do some soldering it can be fixed at home. I bought a kit and instructions from TVRepairKits.com for about $30. Although I haven't worked on electronics since jr high school electric shop, it powered up as soon as I replaced the bad parts. Not very difficult, although the circuit board accumulated an amazing amount of dust in its 10+ years of use.

You must either get the lens polished or replace it. The cost will be about the same. Sorry....accordianman
