Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

Open Question

Hitachi Widescreen Ultra vision 42" TV Digital - Model # 42V715 cost $ 2300.00 new in 2004. When we turn it on, it will run for a short time and then shut off, the screen goes black and later turns back on. Thenstarts this all over again. We have heard about a company who customize and "designed" a defect in specific TV's to make it purposely stop working after 4-6 years. Was not sure if our TV was one of these prize TV's? $ 2400.00 for 6 yrs of use...dont think we will ever buy from this company again!!!!

SOURCE: Hitachi Ultra Vision 61UWX10BB Will not power up Red led flashes

Your repair didn't address the failure. It is much more likely (in the absence of video and sound) that the power supply has failed.
The items you replaced affect convergence and have nothing to do with the audio section or the set's ability to receive signal. The power supply failure will diasable everything.
Look for a separate board with larger-than-average components, some cylindrical (capacitors), some block-shaped (chokes and transformers). And you may be able to recognize its relationship to the AC input line.
Locate the assembly number which may be on a paper label or just printed in ink on the board; any that appear to have been part of the etched traces will be only the empty board number, not the assembly.
Removing and replacing this assembly can be done by most everyone using a little common sense and just plugging in the connectors where they belong. Call your Hitachi service center and ask about potential repair or replacement costs. If you can score a new board, don't throw away the old one since the new board will be as crappy as the original. This way, you will have time and opportunity to find an independent reapir service for these and have a spare on hand for . . . sorry, the next failure. These things aren't 'your father's TV', they die much more often.

Yellow to green tent screen to hitachi tv 42v715


You have some reason to believe it will not?

Some history for you---several years ago Hitachi began along with others to have issues with the optical light engines.

With a mix of high heat from a lamp into the engine (it has a blue,green and red section inside---guess what? BLUE is the first place that gets the heat and is damaged----minus blue and you have red and green which equals YELLOW.

Several of their sets made about 6 years ago (research 50v500) had exact same issues and were settled in a class action lawsuit.

The issue can but does not always affect the entire screen.

The question really is: This set really worth the part and labor cost for the repair?

On that earlier model I replaced under warranty over 40 of the engines. Also Sony and others have had similar issues some of which were settled in court.

HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Power light is on, temp light blinks, and lamp light blinks, no picture.


Its possible that your lamp is bad, or you have not closed the lamp cover properly. If you don't close it, the sensor will tell the TV not to turn on.
