Red screen


Your red tube is going bad or the CRT board is cracked. Either way your TV is done. You cannot get replacement parts anymore.

Hitachi rear projection model 57f59a makes loud popping sound from time to time


Yes and it is common---the set uses 3 picture tubes and where the high voltage (well over 10,000 volts) goes into the side of each tube via a spark plug type wire (with good reason) they completely seal the rubber clip that inserts the wire into the side of the tube.

You are describing almost perfectly when one of the tubes arcs around the anode (what the opening is called--2nd Anode to be precise)

Two things are going to happen--when it pops it can instantly burn the coating off of the offending tube's screen resulting in a burn mark--usually dead center and if red tube arcs the mark will be yellow(only red and visable in that area of the screen.

This damage is permanent once it happens-----Second is that it will arc hard enough to blow some other part out in the set.

let me know if questions.

TV goes blank - no sound or picture


Sounds like a bad capacitor or two in the power section. Do you hear a hissing sound also?

The tv was working and made a hiss and pop and quit, I replaced the flyback and now it just ticks


When you replace a flyback on an RCA Model, Always replace the Horizontal Output tranistor with it. These models are notorious for for bad solder connections in and around the HV area. Also check around the High Voltage Area for bad HV Scaning Capacitors. These are usually square shaped , for cracking,arching,and swelling. Replace if found to be defective. One more thing check the neck of the picture tubes for cracks or arching inside a tube when trying to turn the set on. Sometimes a bad scanning cap will go defective and drive the high voltage so high it cracks the Green CRT.

When turning TV on it would click a few time, then you would hear a hissing sound, but no picture. Would have to unplug TV, as it would not power down. Unplugging and plugging in would eventually get...


The hissing sound could be high voltage leaking from a tripler. Observe in a dark room for blue arcing. Look at tripler and connections to the projection tubes. If the tripler is leaking replace the tripler.

Ghost and red


Sounds like the TV needs major convergence alignment and possibly a a full color scale adjustment. Projection TV's have the most alignment issues. Since I don't know manufacturer I can only give you general ideas. Most projection TV's have either auto or manual alignments which can be accesed through the menu. However the adjustments may be tricky to get to. Once convergence is done if video is still red you will need to get in the TV and set up biasing levels on each tube. Hopefully the tubes are just slightly degraded and can be readjusted for a nice quality image.
I suggest finding a local guy and asking him to possibly do a quick a;ignment for a fixed price.
Good luck

Hissing sound coming from speakers


I found out that if I manually turn the speakers down on the tv and then turn it up with the remote control the hissing sound goes away
