Question about Hitachi 70VS810 70" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Power light blinking continuosly

When i power up the set the 3 lights (lamp, temp, (those 2 are red) and the power light) come on then the 2 red lights go off after about a second, which is normal but the power light keeps on blinking. I had this problem 3 days ago and phoned Hitachi. I unplugged it from my panamax 5400 for a minute and then plugged back in but that didn't help. Then pissed off I went to bed. When i got up the next morning the set worked fine. I called the repair people and they told me that there wasn't anything they could do for me unless it was broke like the night before. It has worked fine for the past 3 days and now has gone out again with the same problem the power light keeps blinking. There is an eventual illumination coming from the set. It isn't bright but its there. Just now, after the TV has been off for 6 hours I went and turned it on. It worked fine for about 30 seconds and then the power light came on again picture went out, just the dull illumination and the power light keeps blinking. Any information that you could give me I would greatly appreciate. Thank you for your time.

    Thank you for your comment. I have already replaced the lamp. Infact like magic it worked this morning no problems. Unfortunately now that I have shut it off again it won't turn back on and the power light just keeps on blinking again. Seems like it needs 6-8 hours of rest before it restarts itself. I will have to look for a repair man. Thanks again for your help

    No fireplaces, and no smokers. But it is new home construction so there is a lot of dust. I will try cleaning out the fan. Had a tech come over and he told me to disconnect my HDMI cables from the TV hook up the standard jacks to it. Unplug it from the power source for at least 6 hours then turn it back on so that it can do a reboot. It just seems to me like its storing power and then shutting down for safety until it disapates and then is able to restart. It has run most of this weekend so far. It will be the last time I buy Hitachi though! Thanks for all your help.

First off check your lamp or replace it. You can never have too many lamps..........in the last minutes of overtime ! Are you kidding Me! If lamp doesn't work, you will need to find qualified servicer. Try craigslist or tv repair in yellowbook

    There are several other problems that can cause your type of shutdown. This could be a temperature problem that could simply involve dirty or non-working fans. If there are smokers or fireplaces in the home. I would bet she's dirty on the inside. Just a thought

Hello I have a Samsung TV Model# HL50A650C1FXZA I have 3 lights blinking 2 green and 1 red light what is the problem


Hello, I try to help. But your questions not spesific.
Below are conditions lamp indicators that appear blinking and solutions:

1. If Timer and Lamp blinking --> Auto timer on/off was been set, picture will appear ~ 25 second.
2. If Timer and Standby/Temp blinking --> A cooling fan inside the set is not operating properly.
3. If Lamp and Standby/Temp blinking --> The lamp cover on the rear of the set is not installed properly.

I hope that solve your problem.
Thanks.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

My Panasonic PT- 50LC13 doesn't turn on


Your service manual on page 82 steps you through decoding the blinking
1) there are two lights on the front near the reciever of the remote signals (Temp indicator and Lamp Indicator)
2) If the Temp indicator is on then they recommend you contact a service center
3) If the Lamp indicator is on and the power light stays on (no blinking) then you need to replace the lamp. Otherwise it says to contact the service center.
4) Counting blinks with the lamp indicator (1 every 5sec - lamp will not light or is abnormal, 2 every 5sec - lamp voltage is abnormal, 3 every 5sec - lamp temp is too high, 4 every 5sec - other error)

Panasonic pt-52lxc66 power light blinks


There are actually two red leds present on your tv and depending on which one is flashing is going to tell you what to replace. 3X on the Temp led will point to a faulty thermistor and you would want to replace this part. If the 3 red blinks are the lamp light than this is a error on the iris position and you would need to have the optical block replaced.

Refer to owners manual on code of blinking lights. 2 red blinks means fan is about to fail etc.. thats just an example of course. See the manual it will tell you what the blinking means. It will also tell you if you can fix it or you need a tech.
