Question about Hitachi 50UX58K 50" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 50UX58K-V8F001238 T.V. acts like it has no power. Won,t turn on. Power button won't light up. T.V. was working fine....turned it off and now acts like it has no power. Is there a re-set button somewhere? TV will not turn on no power light. I opened up the back and when you unplug and plug back in two green lights on a board light and then when a third green light on a different board lights up they all go off. The tv was being watched and just shut down when the problem occured. The tv is 10 yrs. old and never have had a problem

Hello Weaser,

Try a hard reset first..Unplug all connections from the TV, including mains. Wait for about an hour.Nowkeeping the power button pressed, plug in the TV to the mains.

If that did not work, it looks like you have a burnt out resistor or a faulty convergence IC, or bust capacitors. Most likely the regulator is bad because of bad capacitors. Can't really say for sure with my long distance diagnosis.
However, one things for sure...if you do not have any solid state printed circuit board repair experience, I'm afraid the best advice I can offer would be to call in a pro to assist you in this repair.

You can call their support line at +1-800-448-2244

Look in the instruction manual for troubleshooting. Also, try calling customer support. If it really still works fine, i would mind it. But since the tv is 10 years old, i would accept the fact that maybe it is time to get a new tv or repiar it.

Hitachi tv turns on then sometimes it won't


The clue is does the power light come on or not, several of the older ones had a problem with a relay in the power supply, unplugging set one or more times would allow set on.

My TV won't turn on. It was fine this afternoon and when I tried to put in on tonight, nothing.


The key here is does the red power light come on? If not follow power cord inside to the fuse that is directly in line with the cord.

If other let me know.

I have a Hitachi 53uwx10ba power light flashes and tv won't turn on


It is rare in this set but it indicates a short somewhere that is pulling voltage inside the set down---not a do it yourself repair unless you are a Technician with some basic equipment and a schematic diagram.

Have someone look at it from a repair shop or ?

During a rainstorm the electric power went out, and now I can not get the power back in my hitachi model 50UX58K.


see the indicator of your tv. if it is glowing then any of the IC may be gone bad. if not u need to check the power supply. these tvs has very complicated schematic diagrams.

our hitachi did the same thing. It cost us 300.00 to tell us that there were two bad solder joints and they caused a power surge or something.
