SOURCE: Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD... Problem:

Hello there. This is a really "easy" fix, all you have to know how to do is use a phillips screw driver! lol

First unplug the tv to reduce the chance of getting shocked. Remove the speaker cover, it'll pry off from end to end. Next, in front of the dvd player, you'll see several sets of screws; a couple of them will loosen the cover that has the dvd buttons on it and the other ones will loosen the cover for the dvd player. Once you get the button cover off, then you'll be able to get at the last screw that's on the dvd cover. Once that's off, then you'll see the actuall metal sub housing that the player sits in. Take off the four screws and simply pull the whole unit out. Be careful not to pull it too hard our all the way out as you'll have to undo four wiring harnesses from the rear of the player. After that, it comes out.

Now, I looked around and found this company that sells replacement dvd players; new and rebuilt. I called the company and talked with a young lady and ordered a rebuilt unit. There will be a core cost of $1 (meaning you'll have to send back your old unit to get back your $1). The new ones cost $259.45 and rebuilt cost $189.67. The part number is UE22181. The company name is Vance Baldwin Electronics (www.vancebaldwin.com) (954) 723-9191 or (800) 432-8542.

I challenge all who want to do this to NOT waste your money on getting someone to do this for you if you have to pay a lot. I'm really mechanically inclined (I rebuild cars/engines as a hobby) and this on a scale of 1 to 10 is a .5. ;) Good luck.

-Will

The tv model number is hitachi 46w500. the dvd picture is stuck on one screen and now the dvd won't eject.


Remove the power off and let the set rest for about few hours. Now try out to see if the DVD releases.
If the picture is still with the old memory of thelast scene then the processor has hung up.
You must have to release the DVD by opening panel if a reset of an overnight power on the set does not work.

DVD tray won't close


the best I can tell you is take off the outer cover of the player and try gently to 'assist' the tray by pushing it back in and watch to make sure it's going in straight. Here you should be able to see what is causing the tray 'not' to close. Worse case senario is once the tray is closed, it may not open. There is a small piece that breaks easily on these things. I just had one not to long ago with this problem. Hopefully, you'll be able to at least get it closed. If nothing breaks as it retrieves back in, it may work normal again just because it's slightly off track. Hopefully that works.

My son's did the same thing but not because he opened it. I opened it myself and the tray was off track.. it's kinda easy to fix. I haven't had a problem since and this was maybe a year ago.

DVD player won't eject


No but I'm having same problem and the dealer sugested just buying a new dvd player cause cost of repair or replacement is unbelivably high,approx 500 canadian for new dvd sleeve, the guy tells me they don't fix them they just put a whole new dvd player in from hthe manufacturer. Pretty disapointing considering how nice it is to have it built in.

Removing the screen from Hitachi 46W500


Pop the speaker cover off and then remove the screws holding the two small black covers on either side, then you will see the screws holding the bottom of the screen.
