Re: Powering on Hitachi TV
If all you hear is a click and you get no display on the screen, it sounds as though you need a repairman to come out and fix the circuit board. There are several things that cause this symptom on your set but the most common are convergenge amp failure, vertical, or power supply issues. Sometimes as simple as resoldering connections. Other times major troubleshooting and part replacement are required. The repair cost is usually between 175.00 and 375.00 hope you have a trustworthy and knowledgable repair person, good luck, Russmann.

First it is not an emergency. No Legitimate repair company should be that busy. Call Hitachi and get an AUTHORIZED Hitachi dealer to service your TV. Your problem is beyond self help/ Unplug the TV until it is repaired properly or you will do more damage and have a much larger repair bill.

The click you hear is probably from a relay that supplies power to the rest of the set.
If it responds to the remote in the same way, there is a power supply problem beyond help here.
Unplugging the set would allow all of the supply to cool down, temporarily alleviating the problem.
Well Dr. Hitachi has a sequence of L.E.D lights in back of set that lights up in accordance to what is wrong with set. there are about 8. so you need to first get someone to turn on and while looking notice which lights up first and goes out first. This tell the tech what is wrong with set. From my experience with Hitachi, I have replaced many Convergence amps which are the big STK's392-*** or something close to this depending on the set. But it most of the time gives some kind of indication before going out. Like color problems not matching up. Red, Blue or Green out of line, mostly on corners of set. If no color problems then next would be sound problems, and vertical problems. Either problem will give a no High Voltage problem like yours. Also it has little pica fuses, sometimes yellow in color. These can be open also. There are many areas to check but if you are willing you can find the problem. Remember to be safe at checking anything with set plugged in. Turn off first. Hope this helps!
