Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Hitachi 32PD3000 - Just four years old. Recently started switching itself off and back on again. Picture perfect but very irritating when in the middle of a programme the picture and sound switch off. Can anyone help. A local Hitachi service engineer suggest we take it in for repair including the plasma screen. Has anyone told them how heavy a plasma screen is and a charge of £19 to collect and another £19 to deliver the repair seems a bit steep on top of the cost of the repair which could not be estimated until it has been collected.

Hi,

Offhand, it would seem that the unit's problem is either heat related or a cold solder/loose connection. I would discount the possibility of a defective component since if it so then the unit would not even open up.

Pls post back if you are contemplating on doing diagnosis and possible repair yourself. Should you venture a DIY, pls be reminded of safety precautions when working with electrical devices. Of course this would also require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to a service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage measurements would make the diagnosis a lot easier. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

It's been a while since this post, but I may have had a similar problem with my Hitachi. With no reason it would switching on and off randomly. The problem was with a solder joint on main relay - it was cracked and would not keep the coil powered so i kept flickering on/off. This relay is located on the front of pcb, between high voltage area and the switch and on my tv it is blue. Check all four joints and apply some new solder onto them. Make sure the tv is not connected to mains ;-) Hope this helps

Hitachi Projection TV Model 46EX1B


 The most common problems I have found in this model is solder joints going out in the vertical and on the driver transformer.

 I would say the picture tubes are probably starting to go out by now and the technology is changing.

 Look at the new sets. LCD and DLP are using LEDs. 

 Manufactures are beginning to equip their sets with ATSC tuners that bring in High Def. stations by using a pair of rabbit ears.

 In a little over a year most signals must be High Definition and the government is supposed to send out checks for about 40.00 to help fray the costs of converter boxes to convert the older set.

 So, my thoughts are, the set is about 17 years old. The cost of repari and the repair itself would be like putting a bandaid on it.

 Capacitors by now are beginning to dry out and solder joints are starting to open up, not to mention that the picture tubes are getting weak and changing luminance and fading..

 Most sets I repair at this age have future repairs.

  Check out the new technology.
