Question about Hitachi 53SDX89B 53" Rear Projection Television

TV Comes on in the middle of the night

For the past 4-5 months or so, my TV has come on by itself in the middle of the night. I have Dishnet work who assume me that it's not their equipment making this happen. Checked for power surges but ruled that out also. The clock on the TV is not set, therefore, no "alarm clock" mode could be activiating this either. This does not happen every night, it's random. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your comments. I have had my closest neighbor come over with his remotes to see if his would trigger a response but nothing happened. The remote lights could be the cause. I have garden lights that are on a light sensing switch that could me be the cause. I will check that as a possbliity.



    Thanks,



    Any other suggestions are welcome too.

I experienced the same exact problem for a while. Drove me crazy. Would turn on by itself only after a few minutes. Then I realized it began after I added a VCR or a DVD the rear input. Move the plugs to a different input (video 4 to video 5) and the problem was rectified.

Samsung TV model LN32A450C1DXZA, after turning the TV on it will turn itself off shortly after and then turn itself back on shortly thereafter. Then it repeats that several times before staying on.


Hi there,

If the tv is still under warranty, this can be repaired at no charge.

However, if not under warranty, you will need to have the CAPACITORS on the main power supply circuit board tested (or replaced).

The capacitors responsible for the power supply can sometimes fail - open the back panel. If the capacitors on the main power supply board look too fat, or signs of burning near the solder joints, then you've found the problem.

Hope this helps.


Cheers,

Scott

Rca tv my guide plus has quit working


The guide plus needs to reset itself over night. But as long as you are only connected to cable it will not allow for it to reset. You need a two way splitter the cable company signal will go in one side and the outside antenna or what ever you were connected to before cable will go on the other connector. The single side connector will go to the tv. Where the splitter says 'in' you will actually be using it as out to the tv. Where the splitter says 'out' you will be using as in for the cable and the other antenna. Guide Plus is built into your tv and needs the tv to be off to reset over night.

i've seen this happen a few times and most of those times it turned out that that a security light or some other light source was getting into the infrared sensors on front of the device. this usually occurs after just recently rearranging furniture and tv locations. it can also be kind of spooky. this also happens in the daytime when the sun is shining on the unit in question.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
