Question about Hitachi 57F59 57" HDTV

1 Answer

We have a Hitachi 57F59J, it is making a loud popping sound and the screen flickers, we took the back off. Sparks are coming from the right side, on one of the three boards. Can you tell us what this is, if it is fixable, and if it is safe when plugged in?

Loud popping noise tv


EHT arcing takes place. Never switch the TV on, until this fault has been rectified. Doing so, will make too many other faults to occur. Contact any service technician.

Hitachi rear projection model 57f59a makes loud popping sound from time to time


Yes and it is common---the set uses 3 picture tubes and where the high voltage (well over 10,000 volts) goes into the side of each tube via a spark plug type wire (with good reason) they completely seal the rubber clip that inserts the wire into the side of the tube.

You are describing almost perfectly when one of the tubes arcs around the anode (what the opening is called--2nd Anode to be precise)

Two things are going to happen--when it pops it can instantly burn the coating off of the offending tube's screen resulting in a burn mark--usually dead center and if red tube arcs the mark will be yellow(only red and visable in that area of the screen.

This damage is permanent once it happens-----Second is that it will arc hard enough to blow some other part out in the set.

let me know if questions.

Screen blinks and then goes out. tap on side and causes flickers


sure sounds like loose solder joints, look for them in the deflection circuit, just find the hard plastic encapsulated body with the thick red wire sticking out of it thats where usually the loose solder joints develop.

Loud popping noise


The 23" CRT set may have a high voltage breakdown in the flyback transformer or focus divider. Take the back off and operate the set in a dark room. Look for anything that has a blue glow around it or sparks flying when the pop occurs. I won't guarantee this will find your problem, but it is definitive if you see these!

I once had a set with these symptoms. I stopped the blue glow and arcing by covering the focus divider with epoxy. It worked for a couple of months before the divider literally broke apart.

Frigidaire fridge door makes a loud popping sound


You need to take the door off the hinges and remove the lower hinge plate from the bottom of the door. This is where I found my popping problem. The black bushing with the 3 bumps and dips on it is loose in the plate going into the door. I took black eletrical tape and rapped it around the part that goes into the plate to tighten the bushing up so it wouldn't turn anymore. ( This was a temp fix to see if the popping would go away) 3 Weeks later and still working. If the sound comes back I will put some double sided sticky back foam on it. Both doors were doing this on my fridge, and now its as quite as a mouse. I hope this fix works for you.

32 RCA makes popping sounds


It needs a new FLY BACK transformer. That is what you are looking at. The origionals are not made for the set any longer but insist on having a generic on installed by a local TV shop. I just put one into a RCA 31" and it works nice. Don't throw away the TV. Get it fixed. MAKE SURE YOU INSIST THEY USE THE GENERIC ONE! THEY DO WORK!

Tv problem


It sounds like you have High Voltage arc, coming from back of set. Was there ever Horzontal lines in picture when this happen. Or did your picture ever get dark and miss some color? If any of this happen then it could be coming from High Voltage Transformer, and anodes leads coming from trans.I would say clean spark gap anode leads and make sure all are seated properly(tighten). It would help if you could have the back open and notice when the set does this to see if you see sparks and were from. Hope this helps. Remember be carefull around any Voltage.
