The sound on my tv has gone out for some time now. On a rare occasion it actually comes back but in between long periods of time. I live in a very rural area and the minimum charge to come out and service is 200 hundred dollars and then 80 per hour. Is it something simple or would I be better off purchasing a new model.

Re: Hitachi tv sound is out
If your tv is very old (ten years is old in tv years) then you would be better off with a new one. your alternative would be to run a pair of audio cables from your vcr or cable or satellite reciever to a stereo using the auxillary input and adjust your volume with the stereo.

Switch off the TV at the wall plug and pull the plug out. Disconnect everything from the TV, wait 5 minutes, reconnect the aerial, put the wall plug back in and switch on. You should now have sound. I`ve had this on several occasions and this always solves the problem.
I don't know what model you have but ... the 50v715 I have did the same thing. Would come up for about 3 to 30 sec's (picture and sound) then shut down and do again. It was the BULB going out. You probably just need to replace your bulb. Check your manual on how to change it out. Make sure you buy an original Hitachi replacement I think there made by phillips. Hope this is helpful.
sounds like the vertical deflection is causing the CRTs to blank cause you still have sound and on screen displays. Try resoldering the vertical output IC see if that helps. If not you may need a new vertical output IC. Let me know if i can assist you further.
Could be a loose connection on the printed circuit board in the Vertical deflection circuit.
You would have to have a qualified technician to repair this problem.
A intermittent connection in the circuit described can cause a horizonal line across the screen.
You have to be careful and not leave the TV on for a period of time with a bright line, as it can actually burn a line on the CRT screens, which is permanent.
Ryan, this sounds as if the green CRT has gone out in this set. You might want to double check the warranty of your television as this set might have a lifetime warranty on the CRT's. If you cannot find the warranty info on your set, call 1-800-448-2244 for further assistance
