Question about Hitachi 53SDX01B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Getting sound and no picture. had a tv repairman out said it was a the main board (can't remember exactly what he called it) said it would be close to $700 to repair which is almost what i paid for it. Wondering if anyone could tell me the part name and number and if its it a kind of (plug & play) hook up, another words a guy with no experience can hook it up.

Thats a deflection problem which indicates the Deflection board is the problem. You should be able to get a replacement board or your board rebuilt from boards are very easy to replace.

    is this still the case if there is no light or picture? Is this the board on the shelf next to the 3 bulbs, to the right if you're looking from behind the t.v.?

    Ok looked to the right their is a board that the power supply runs into, it is side mounter on the wall. There is a very large board on the bottom not sure if it is several boards placed together though. Don't know what the HV transformer would look like. All wires seem the same size but there is a red one coming off of the board with the power supply

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Check the Va and Vs voltages. These voltages should be so accurate as marked on the silk screen behind the display panel. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

I just fixed this problem on my neighbor TV. I don't have a manual or schematic, and didn't pay any attention to the reference designators, so I will just have to describe it. The problem was a bad solder joint. Visible thermal fatigue. Looking at the main board, (didn't even need to slide the cassis out). There is a small, narrow, vertical board in the center, adjacent to the yoke connectors with a funny looking little transformer on the very top. Check the connections on that.
