    I took the back panel off and found that the problem is located on the "center" board. There are two lights flashing in time with the cricket sound. I have to leave town and won't be able to check anything until i get back next week.

    Thanks again!

    Hi, My 53WUX10BA is experiencing the same issue with, no power/sound with Power light on. I had the convergence board replaced about a year ago. I will replace both relays, but cannot find E907. Is it on the power supply board, convergence board, center board or far left board when looking from the back of the unit? When the power is on there is one led DP23 on the center board witch is not on, could this be of any indication as to which relay/pico fuse to replace?

    I am a technician, but have no schematics for this unit and cannot get any as I am not Hitachi certified.

    Any help would be appreciated

I over adjusted. red power light flashes, on main board 2 green lights flash and one red stays lit. dont forget the cricket sound too. lol Take off the bridge and pic and sound work but picture is all over the place. Any ideas?

I have a Hitachi 53uwx10ba power light flashes and tv won't turn on

It is rare in this set but it indicates a short somewhere that is pulling voltage inside the set down---not a do it yourself repair unless you are a Technician with some basic equipment and a schematic diagram.

Have someone look at it from a repair shop or ?

Sounds like the convergence board, try replacing the STK voltage regulators and any resistors that may burned or discolored. This problem is causing the power supply to shut down probably.

Hitachi 53uwx10ba turns on & off when off red flashing light/clic

Same problem. Replaced both convergence ICs about 5 months ago. Worked fince since then and just recently no sound, no video, blinking red on front panel and clicking sound. I suspect that the ICs went bad again and blew a resistor or two. I used cheap Chinese ICs instead of the Sanyo ones and thing this is why. I'll be looking at it again and post solution.

DP23 LED not lit on deflection board no picture on tv

Good Day, Gil;
Your problem is in deflection circuit (115+v) check these: FP05, DP15, Q777, QH01, TH01, T701, etc. BUT suspect C707 1k pfd, 2kv, and check all the pico fuses (brown) 2" to the right of cap. Good Luck, big IRISH.
