Hitachi 61SWX10B- no sound & static

Have a hitachi 61swx10b rear projection television. when we turn the television on, there is static sound in the speakers and then the sound goes out. it sometimes comes back on its own after about 1 minute or stays out until we turn the television on and off. not very familiar with television jargon; can you help me figure out what the problem is and what needs to be done? What is the average cost to fix a problem like this? thank you.

    Sound fine when TV first turned on. Sometimes sound goes off completely and comes back on it's own. Whether sound goes away or not, it's not long before a loud static starts. It dwindles after time, but doesn't go away unless the TV is turned off.

    We also have a Hitachi 61SWX10B rear projection TV that has this exact same problem. No sound at switch on with a brief static noise issued at turn on or off (or when sound finally comes on). Switching between the dvd player; vcr or xbox can also produce this issue if the sound has been on... when you switch back it doesn't have sound. Turning the tv on or off repeatedly or leaving it on for long periods can produce a working sound. Usually once the sound is working it stays on for however long you have the tv on (but it can take an hour or more to get the sound working). I'm not a television or electronics repair person but I am thinking it might be some type of capacitor failure or a bad soldering connection? Any help would be appreciated. This particular rear projection TV was produced in Dec. 2001.

Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis.

Yes it certainly sounds like you have the old convergence outpuyt IC's that have gone bad in this TV set. If you have the soldering skills, and know how to work on printed circuit boards, you can repolace both of the STK convergence IC's. If you do not, you can get the complete convergence board at http://www.ptscorp.com, and the Hitachi board number is JT22056. Good Luck

SOURCE: my color is off real

Solution:

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

SOURCE: hitachi projection hdtv has 3d effect and bowed shape

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

I have a hitachi 62in. Model # 61swx10b My sound has gone out what can i do or check to fix it?


There is most likely an issue with the Surround PWB since you have the DP17 chassis. I would check the following items on the surround board. I have seen them all several times with the DP17

IT02 Shorted, pins 92 and 93 caused by Solder splash. IT02 Is also known to fail. Also pins 42, 43, & 44 have been known to have cracked solder
IT05 pins 20 & 21 shorted also Seems to have been caused by too much solder.

IS13, pins 1 & 2 shorted ( too much solder

Also check for cracked circuit trace patterns under IT05If you need further assistance let me know.
