Question about Hitachi 42V715 Rear Projection Television

Buzzing and glowing on circuit board

My lamp went out and then there was a loud buzzing sound from the back. I took off the back panel and on the right is a small circuit board. There is a small (maybe 1/4" in diam. and height) white cylinder that buzzes really loud and glows like a light bulb. could this be just because the lamp went out? I dont want to spend $150 for a new lamp and still have a broken TV.

That white cylinder is a capacitor and is very dangerous, you need to discharge it and replace it. Does the top seem to be bulging on it? If so, it is bad for sure and it is cheap for a new one. If it continues to buzz after replacing it, then your board has a problem. Replace capacitor before replacing lamp. The lamp still may be good

Bulb has gone out and now makes a loud noise


The noise depending on where it came from may be normal. You wont be sure unless a TV repairman checks the boards to know for sure, or you could replace the bulb and hope for the best.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise


First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

If that is sparking the ballast is ok. Change the bulb although it looks ok it is not firing up. also make sure the bulb is plugged securely in its socket.

Loud Buzzing Sound


since you changed the lamp my next thought is that the color wheel has failed,,,most good road techs can replace it in the home..the cost would be between 220.00 and 350,00 depending on the company...

You have bad capacitors in the power supply that took out the regulator, or the ballast circuit is defective. Not really a repair for the novice. Good Luck
