Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi Projection on/off problem

I have an old 50 inch Hitachi 500UX7 projection TV that has been great for over 16 years. It still has an excellent picture and functions as new. Lately there has been trouble turning it on either with the remote or manually.

Any ideas for repair. I live in a semi-remote location with few if any TV repair services available but plenty of electrical contractors.

Thanks .......... Bill Cosgrove Powell River BC Canada

    Hi accordianman..

    Problem is it is reluctant to come on. There is a manual push button and the remote. It requires more and more of pushing either one of these before it comes on. Sometimes now it takes more than a minute of pushing these buttons before it comes on. My guess is that I'm running out of time and need to replace something as both the manual and remote methods are requiring more and more pushing.

    Thanks for your interest......bill

    My 16 yr old rear projection TV is doing a similar thing. I was watching TV and it turned it self off. Then you could hear and see the red light on the power button trying to come on and off while making a pop sound. During this time there was no picture on the screen. Now when I try to turn the TV on the light by the power button comes off and imediately turns off.

    I'm guessing that there is a "clicking" noise coming from inside the set, am I correct? If that's the case, the stand-by relay needs to be replaced...accordianman

The Hitachi 50UX57B is a 50 inch standard projection TV with a standard screen. It is not HD ready. If you need it, I think I can download the owner's manual (in PDF format) from Hitachi and foward it to you.

Hitachi 52 projection tv

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
