Question about Hitachi 42HDT50 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

I have a Hitachi 42HDT50M and I bought this in 2004, around 2006 the tv would turn itself off and then back on. Sometime I wouldnt even be watching it for over 24 hours and it would just turn itself on. This wouldn't be a instant off and then back on sometime it would never turn back on and I would have to manually push the button. I have been dealing with this problem for YEARS and it tends to be bad sometime where I cant even watch a movie because it is so annoying sometimes it wont happen for weeks, and I forget all about it.. I would love to hear any possible ideas someone might have. I have even brought this tv in to a professional tv repair shop, they said the tv was fine and it didn't act up for them.. I mean other than that the tv is pretty tip top. As I type this the tv just turned on, its like I have ghosts in the house.

You may have to buy a powerline filter to get rid of signals on your powerline? Or you might have to cover your remote sensor on the TV?

Hi I am Vortash
There may be actually nothing wrong with your set ? .......
This set has an anti surge protection circuit and it is designed to shut down should the incoming power peak above 240 volts or more , is this happenig at random times or around the same time in the evening or day it may be that this safety device is protecting the set .. sometimes local area transformers peak at the time of most consumer requirements this may just coincide to when you sit down to watch tv .. however if it has a habit of doing it at different times during the day .. then this safety circuit may be at fault and require an engineer to service the tv and check for poor components that have changed value .. It explains this is in the manual if you do not have one for your set you can download one for free from http://www.safemanuals.com hope this is of help regards Vortash

Scrolling lines in the picture


The capacitors in the sweep supply and maybe in the main power supply are starting to dry up. Your going to need to get a tech to go over the boards and search out the dryed capacitors. It will take some time and maybe a bit costly. May want to think maybe about a new set? Good Luck
