Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Lamp Light keeps blinking

I just bought a replacement lamp and the red light keeps blinking - it is like the TV doesn't recognize the new lamp - I found this answer, but how do I do this?

"It must be a red light flashing as the 50V500 has no green lights on it. Make sure that when you place the lamp cover back on that it is activting the micro switch behind it. Otherwise the set will assume the door is open and won't ignite the lamp. Otherwise the ballast could be the issue."

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

I have replaced the lamp block and now the power stand by red light is going on and of (this was a new lamp block). Do I need to reset some how?


Hi,
If standby red light is blinking 3 times after three second pause then check lamp cover that has no been fixed in its place correctly, it is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is back in place properly and tight.
If standby red light is blinking more or less then 3 times, let me know to diagnose problem.
Thanks.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

TV won't turn on after lamp was replaced


Check the switch on the lamp door. Listen for the color wheel to spin. if the door switch is bad the lamp wont come on, samething if the color wheel is bad.

The power light keeps on blinking red three times with no picture


OK. Great! 3 times is simple. The lamp door is not properly closed or the lamp is not fully engaged into the socket. Most likely it is a door issue, though.

Lamp light


Check the lamp switch that is located inside the door. Place the lamp in, and stick a flathead screwdriver in the slot (just make sure it moves) hold it there, and turn on the Tv. If that doesn't work check the new lamp, is it a generic lamp, if so they dont always work. If you still have your old orig lamp, take the old lamp out of that housing, and out the new lamp in the old housing. This should fix the problem.
