Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

50vx500 Varian, Do you know anything about the vx500 turning on and off on it's own? i'd appreciate any input. I've had the light engine replaced already. the tv is probably 3-5 years old (my memory isn't what it used to be) and i've never replaced the lamp but from what i'm told, that's not bad lamp behavior. typically, i'm told, the picture gets progressively darker and then the lamp eventually goes. My picture seems fine except for this random on and off. Thanks

The lamps can do many odd things when they are on the way out includung the picture coming on and then dissapearing for a while then coming back. The lamps adverage life is 2000 hours, and at 3-5 years it is on borrowed time.

I have a 1995 K2500 that had the motor changed to a HD 383 Stroker before I bought it / It also has vortec heads. The oil pressure seems really low to me. About 2 to 5 lbs at idle. About 30 to 35 lb


That will burn out the engines bearings, if it knocks at all it is to late. Do verify the reading with a mechanical gauge if you haven't done so already. The rule is this at least 10-15 pounds at idle with hot oil, 10 PSI per 1000 RPM of engine speed. If engine is not knocking then replace the oil pump with a high pressure high volume pump.

My 2000 GMC Jimmy won't start


You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

The headlights and high-beam search lights on my 1987 Toyota land cruiser wont turn on. Is this a fuse problem? If so where is the corresponding fuse/fuse-box located? I've already look on the und


The left and right headlights are on different fuses. If both are not working, you need to check the fusible link, headlight relay, and the switch itself. See diagram below.

You have the infamous "red cloud" as we call it and nothing you personally do will fix it. Here's what you need to do...we just went thgrough this about a month ago. Call Hitachi's customer RELATIONS department (not customer service) at 800-654-7013. Tell them what the TV is doing and that you believe you have a defective light engine. Now, they will initially act like they have not heard of this problem but they have. The will however give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once you have a tech out to confirm that you have a bad light engine (this will take the tech less than a minute once you turn the set on) call Hitachi's customer relations department back and tell them you have a bad light engine. All of a sudden, they will acknowlege the probelm exist and will Hitachi will call the dealer direct to confirm that's the problem.

Once they confirm the problem with the dealer you used directly, they will send out a brand new light engine and Hitachi will cover the cost.

Here's the kicker. If your TV is not still under warranty, ours was not, Hitachi will cover the part (cost around $1500) but you will have to pay for the install. Our install cost $400 but worth it to us on a $3600 TV that has been great up until the light engine issue. If you're still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. DO NOT let any store or dealer tell you that you will have to pay for this part. Hitachi is replacing it with brand new light engines for free...you just pay the install.

Please deal only with the Hitachi customer RELATIONS department at the number I've listed above. That is the direct number to Hitachi's customer relations department. Hitachi customer service will not help you at all!

Once our light engine was replaced, and the tech replaced it in our home and did not have to take the TV to the shop, our TV is like brand new again! Good Luck:)
