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.

Did I damage electronics after using auto clean feature?


Sounds like there may have been a power failure or problem with the voltage when you were using this or before you did. Try shutting off the breaker for 5 minutes, turn it back on. This will reset the board in the oven. Then see if it works. If it still is defective, the voltage 'surge' may have destroyed the board. You may be able to turn it in to your insurance if that is the case, as from a storm that took out the oven when it hit and the power went out and then came back on. A clue is the keypad lights go dim and brighter then dim again.

Bcm problem?


This sounds like a you are having a voltage problem. Have the charging system checked. A bad battery or poor alternator output can cause this. When voltage starts dropping below about 9 volts all kinds of crazy electrical things can happen and they can be anything and anywhere.

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.

Electrical???


Since you've checked your voltage at the battery and alternator and they are ok, I would say it seems like an electrical issue. You need to put the truck on a diagnostic scanner to see what part (electrical part) is malfunctioninig.
