Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Hitachi 46w500 went off tonight during storms, low voltage, wont turn back on

During an electrical storm tonight the Hitachi went dim, as with all other lights in the house, low voltage do to the storm. Then all electricity went out for about 2 hours until power company fixed some trouble with the lines. Now, with electricity back on, the tv will not turn on. The book says to unplug it for 30 seconds, then try to power on, I did so, but nothing happens. I can hear a "click" but no light on the power button on the front. When looking at the back of the set, I can see a light inside, so I know it is getting power. Any ideas, or did the storm just zap my Hitachi dead?
thanks,

    I was hoping there was a fuse/relay reset button somewhere that I did not know about. I have a multimeter, but I dont know if I would want to go poking around in side my TV. Now if that would indicate some type of internal fuse I could replace, I might go for it.

There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.

    I would suggest to identify the power supply board by following where the AC cord is connected and check for fuses. The fuses normally will have a letter "F" beside them follow by a number.

No power to the microwave, after storm.


The low voltage brownout let the oven draw too much current, and likely an internal fuse failed. Typically after removing a dozen Philips screws you can take off the cover and locate the fuse, which you can match and replace. [If it still has "power" (like the lights come on) but has stopped heating, then it could be any number of other issues (main capacitor fail, etc)] I've changed a fuse or two in my day, and years ago a failed capacitor, with success.

Had a lightning storm,now brand new aircon wont restart,remote is ok


The electrical storm may have caused a power surge and burned out the circuit board. Especially, if the power went out briefly and then came right back on. Most manufacturers recommend turning the unit OFF during a power outage/electrical storm.

Hope this helps you.

The sound could have come from one of your power capacitors. You could tell if one of them is no longer operational by looking at them; they will be burned, or blistered, or will be bulging. If this is a CRT type of TV ensure that you only look inside if you are fully aware of how to deal with the lethal voltages that are stored on the inside of the unit.

Tv turns on and then off


Good Day, ruschracing;

Storm? The first thing you should do is unplug the TV from the wall for 3 to 6 minutes (reset), then plug back into wall.

If that does not help, then you should call an authorized service center to give you an estimate for the repairs. OR call your home owners insurance company.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
