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.
Let me know if you need further assistance

    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.

Changing inputs on hitachi tv 46w500 with out a remote


The Hitachi 46W500 has an Input button on the front of the TV. (This is the second button from the right. The right-most button is the Menu Button.) You should be able to press this repeatedly to switch between inputs.

If the Front Panel Lock is engaged, you need a remote to unlock this. (Only the Power button works when the FPL is engaged.) A universal remote which has a code that matches that needed to get the Menu button to work will do the job.

I hope this helps.

My area had a thunderstorm and our power went out now my emerson tv won't turn on. Can you help me.


Some times electrical storms contain EMP's - electro-mechanical pulses- which affect the TV permanently.

Take it to a TV technician or junk it and buy a new one.

Its could be a fuse but highly unlikly. A surge will usually blow out the power supply, like short out the rectifiers,or the standby power supply. Its best to let a trained servicer look at the set. Good Luck
