Question about Hitachi 50SBX78B 50" Rear Projection Television

My tv will not power up?

My power went off too. If I unplug the unit then plug it back in I see green lights on the circuit boards for about 15 seconds and the power light is on in front then it all goes off again.

If you have Hitachi model number 50UX58B, 60UX58B, 50UX58K, 60UX58K, 50SBX78B or 60SBX78B and you have the following symptoms you may want to grab a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kit that includes the parts and instructions to fix these models. This is a fairly common problem with the above model numbers. It is typically caused by a blown capacitor and pico fuse. Again, you can get a kit from the above address. 

Here are the symptoms...

Primary Symptom: No Audio or Video. Power light will come on briefly then shut off.
Other Possible Symptoms : The green LEDs on the circuit board light up for a few seconds then turn off.

Hope this helps,

Well it could lot's of problem, first I would suspect bad convergence it's, you will have to insulate what circuit is shutting the unit down, could be over current, over voltage, difflection, convergence, bad power supply, no power (fuse), cold solder joint, when there is no difflection the system (CPU) will turn off the unit to proteck the crt's.
I would first start by syspecting the convergence section shutting down the unit.

Our Mitsubishi projection tv went out one day. When we went to turn it back on all it does is blink the green light for a few seconds and then shuts off. What could it be? Where can we look to see where...


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device"(input) and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Once the current went out in our residence, the tv went out as well. When the current was restored, the tv didn't come back on by the remote or pushing the power button on the tv itself. Where the green...


Although you may think the power outage has ruined your TV, it has not. I have repaired this model . This model by now has several bad grounds. The worst case is in your convergence board. This problem was in the process before the power outage. I do not believe you will have to purchase parts for this particular model. If you can very carefully pull out the convergence board, you will find 15 or twenty bad solder grounds on the solder side of this board. The major concern will be that the convergence IC, which is a STK-393-110 has separated pins from the board. This would be the first thing to solder. Next the jumper jack cables that connect this board to the other two boards will have bad grounds as well. You must really,really have good eyes to see the cracked rings around the pins of any and all ICs,resistors,transistors, capacitors, diodes etc. This will restore the operation of your TV. I must tell you...it will not be easy to pull this board out and replace. You may opt to see a TV tech. Show a tech this info. This will repair this TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Tv went blank, wont come back on.


If those green lights on the board are going dim, then yes it should be repaired. This is likely a bad main filter capacitor on the primary side of the switch mode transformer. Should not cost over $150 at the most. Easy fix

Mitsubishi WS-65513 Flashing green light


Good Day, charliek1;
This a very common problem with model. Don't listen to other comments unless the use the correct replacement parts.

SYMPTOM: Power LED does not stop blinking after plug in.

CURE: replace C9B01, C9B02,C9B10, and C9B11 (1000 uFD 16V) on the DM PCB. Replace them with part # 181P734030 (680uFd 16V).

The DM Board (PCB) is located on the very left side of the TV looking from back. Caution on removing Board and note what cables you disconnect to access the Metal Shielded Board.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Blinking green timer light


Check C81A2, C81A3, C81B3 and C81B4 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the DM PCB.
Check C8F19, C8F21, C8F22 and C8F27 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the FMT PCB.
If any are bad, replace all of them with part # 181P734030 (680 uFD, 16V, 105C).

Mitsubishi WS-65313 - Will not turn on


The most common failure are the two convergence integrated circuits part # 267P173010. The two pico fuses may be open as well, which come from the power supply and provide +24 volts and -24 volts.

on the signal board replace the caps by the 5/9 volt regulators. c2p04 is the main culprit. 6 caps in total can be changed. I believe c2p05 also.
