Question about Hitachi 57SWX20B 57" Rear Projection Television
It sounds as though you have what is referred to as a climental problem. In laymen terms, a transistor, chip or regulator is heating up and breaking down. The way a technician normally isolates this type of problem is by using a cooling agent ( freeze spray ). When the set heats up and the picture goes away, the technician sprays some of the cooling agent on a part of the board ( select a small area, about 6 inches square ) at a time and see if the picture comes back on. When you do finally get to the bad area, the picture should come back on for a short period of time until the bad part heats up again. After a period of time and by using the freeze spray, a person can isolate the exact bad part. Replace that bad part, and any filter capacitors hooked to that bad part and the set should work properly. As always, use caution and unplug the set before opening the set and when using the freeze spray, be sure not to touch any connections in the tv as they could produce shocks.
I hope this has helped and good luck on your problem.
Have a Great Presidents Day
