Question about Hitachi 50UX58K 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I was playing a video game on my 1998 hitachi 50ux58k projection screen tv and all of a sudden I heard a "pop" and then smelled like a burnt out component, possibly a bulb? After the "pop" there was no power what so ever. PLEASE HELP!

There is a common problem on this model, there is a capacitor that pops out----a visual look at it will tell you if the problem is it, it will have a physical crack in it. This set uses orange colored pico fuses---look like a little resistor and if the cap went it took one of them out. I can tell you where to look for the cap and the fuse associated with it. Total parts cost if this is what is wrong is under 10 dollars. It does require soldering (fuse and cap each have two leads) but not impossible to do for a do it your self person---this is so common I carry both the cap and fuses when I go to peoples homes---seen it bad in over 40 sets of this age, including one I own. If this told you something you did not know and you want to know where and what to look for, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free. SD TECH

One of your capacitors n the video board burnt out. You will have to use a multi-tester or capacitor tester with service manual to determine which capacitor it was that burnt out.

User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

This is a comb filter problem, you would need someone who can solder out the board or can and replace the caps and replace the board. It can be, depend what your service center labor is.

Can i play video games on my hitachi projection tv


Playing video games on projection TV's is a very bad idea. It can cause damage to the picture tubes ("pattern burn"). Most projection TV manuals and video game manuals specifically mention you should not do this. Your husband is right.

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.
