Question about Televison & Video

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.

Befour you do anything check the menue make sure no one has turned your speakers off by accident in the menue go to audio their might be even a button on the remote someone might have hit by accident if this is all good try to unplug unit count to 10 then plug back in if that fails then if you are hooked up to a cable box you must make sure that is not your problem hook tv up to dvd or vcr see if you have sound still no sound then you have a problem with your sound module shop repair180-230

I have a Hitachi TV and it has recently started switching itself off for about 5 minutes before it comes back on again. It is only a year old. Could it be overheating?


Yes the overload sensor is cutting in You have some componenent/s getting hot. You need to do a warranty repair callout before more components burn out completely.

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

Screen does not switch on, mode light flashes orange


Need to remove the Input module circuit box from the bottom of the center and wait for few minutes before putting it back.

This will reset the system from this persistant power off problem.

Best way to prevent it from happening again is to manually switch of the power switch before doing any powering off and on. Most commonly happens during a power failure and power coming back on with the switch in the on position.
