Question about Hitachi 55HDS69 55 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

There appears to be a problem with the connection for the cable on my Hitachi 55hsd69 tv. The picture flickers and jumps around schizophrenically. This only happens for the cable input - I can play DVDs with no problem at all, so the screen itself is fine. I've tried swapping the HDMI cable used for the DVD and the cable - still no problem with the DVD, and still the same problem with the cable. I've also tried hooking up the cable box to another tv, and there is no problem, so it's not the cable input. Any suggestions? Thanks!

How can i fix my hitachi ultravision it has green and double vision on top of screen


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Picture goes out when floor jars the TV.


Check for bad solder connections around where the tuner attaches to the chassis. Look for cracks with a magnifying glass solder should appear shiny with no circular cracks.
