Question about Hitachi 61SBX59B 61" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Jittery picture, jittery picture not, jittery picture, jittery picture not

Hey and good day.. I can't think of a better way to describe the problem than the title. If you close the front door of the house the picture will jitter then settle...........maybe, then sometimes it will jitter up and down, the top corners will jiggle in.. But never does it go black. It is as though the picture looses configuration and then snaps back. Tap on the side of the TV and most the time the jittery picture will react to the tap. If left alone usually the picture will settle in to hours of operation without any jitter. Sometimes jitter every now and then. When it is jittering if you lightly tap on the bottom it is affected generally double as much as tapping the upper side. So sometimes it jitters a couple times and stops, other times it jitters for minutes and minutes and eventually stops.

When a friend plugged in his PS2-3 to the front input, the sound from guitar hero the picture was affected so much by the game noise that we had to patch the sound directly to the receiver and not use the TV speakers. Anyway it acts mainly as though it is a loose connection. When the TV is cold and turned on fresh it takes a while before it stops jittering and becomes stable.

Is this a connection and/or a component on a specific board that is known for doing this? I figure I can pull it out and solder it or replace the component fairly easily with some good instruction. I know nothing about that part, how it works etc. But if I can find the thing I can get it cut out and get a new one soldered in if it needs to be done. But I need some good and helpful direction.

So is there a place on a board that is known to cause this problem generally. Sure would be nice to find it before it goes completely and/or destroys something else while doing so, not to mention to watch a movie without the jitters would be nice too.... Sure appreciate your time and help. Thank you..

    This has been a long time ago.. But you know what fixed it.. unplugged the tv from the 110.. I carefully vacuumed the entire board everywhere I could reach and viola', never did it again.. Someone, somewhere told me it could be a build up of dust causing connections to be affected by current passing through the dust and affecting some of the electrical components.. Unreal it worked.. In some of the hard to get places I used canned air to blow it out of the cracks.

SOURCE: Picture flickers when T.V. is tapped on or struck.

sounds very much like a loose connection, i.e. a wire or solder joint, you could have a look around make sure everything is plugged in right, as for the solder joints id advise getting it proffessionally looked at as these rear projection tvs can be a lot of hassle if you slighty knock any of the 3 tubes,

Good Day, LDS also;
You may have a poor seated cable connector. Unplug TV from A/C, remove back look for a large black connector. It connects between the Main Digital Module and the Drive PWB. Re-insert both ends several times to make better contact, use contact cleaner if have but not always needed. Good Luck, big IRISH.

How do I buy a compact refridgertor to go on an outside covered deck in Raleigh, NC?

Most compacts will work but I don't think the glass door is a good choice. Think of your house windows. Cold in winter--hot in summer. I would stick with a solid door and on extremely hot days, a fan blowing against it may help. I have a GE on my outdoor patio in PA near the border of WV and it works fine but we don't get as hot as you will. We get a few days close to100 but not a lot.

It's called the door latch. You can't buy parts for it. You can buy the whole mechanism though. Or get one at a junkyard. A spring or small pin has broken inside of it. I tried to many times to find parts for the inside of these things. No luck.

Screen rolls and is jittery

If you have room to install extra memeory, do so and see what happens. If you still have the same problem, it could be that your video card is defective.

No water goes into dishwasher. Dishwasher has only been used 2times. Came new with house 3.6 years ago. Pulled front panel off...everything appears to be connected motor fan runs.

I've experienced the same thing. Try very slowly rotating timer dial, click by click, until the water starts. Sometimes 3 or 4 clicks will start water. (You're advancing the clock.) Usually water starts in before the dial points to, "Short Wash." If this doesn't work, advance the dial to, "Off," unlock and open the door, reset, close, the soap dispenser, close and lock the door, and slowly advance the dial until the unit starts. I think this problem is a clock to pump issue and what I've described does a reset of the system. This happens to me once or twice per month. Poor engineering but still better than buying a new least 'till now.

My top freezer door pops open when you close the bottom door

Good day,
If leveled properly, with ideal being a slight tilt to the rear,
The problem is usually weak magnets in the door gasket.

If you are going to replace the gasket, when purchasing it at an appliance parts house, they should advise you on the proper procedure for installing it.

Follow the procedure exactly as described. IMPORTANT !!
