Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have had a Hitachi 42" Plasma screen TV for almost 3 years and recently it has had problems. When you turn it on, the TV only stays on for about 10 minutes, and then the screen goes black with the message "no sync, no signal" and then after about 15 more seconds it gives the message " power saving" and shuts off. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    we have a 42" hitachi plasma tv. When watching it for 10 min. or more(as much as a 1hr or 2 but usually 10 min) the screen will go black then text on the screen will say no signal sync then go into power saving mode then either shut down or lock up so that neither the remote or side controls work. We then have to power down at the main power switch. When playing a dvd the same thing. Both are using R G B cables. We also have a Wii connected to input 2, after the 10 min. the picture freezes. We can get into the menu of the tv but only for a short time. This problem started several months ago the Wii is new and added item as of today. The dvd is in put 3 and the cable box(comcast dvr) is on input 4.the factory sent us update soft ware about 3 mo. ago the problem existed both before and after. I hopr there is enough info to help.

    thank you for suggesting something I believe we have read at least a dozen or more times. If you can't help with respectfully acknowledge that and allow different person to help if possible. Though I believe there are many who would not think of reading the manual first. Thank you.

The signal from the STU to the Hitachi box is going in the wrong direction.
Is the adaptor that you have switchable? If so, flick the switch in the
other direction and this will fix it. If the adaptor is not switchable get
one that is. Then set the STU output to RGB.

Hope this Helps. -CA

I have a 42 inch Hitachi plasma tv that is making a very loud static noice coming from the internal speakers. It stays at a contstant very loud volume unless I completly mute the tv or turn the volum


Based on what you have tried if a buzz or loud static via the speakers you have something wrong in the audio output circuit of the set--problem here is that circuit may be part of the Main board that processes all signal---a look inside---following the speaker leads back would lead you to that board.

A simple thing to do to narrow it a little (you may have done this) is with sound all the way off put your ear to the internal speaker--hear anything at all like a deep hum?

Depending on age of set and cost of the board likely bad it may or may not be a do it yourself repair.

Samsung Plasma 42" TV - 2006


Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.

Plasma wnt stay on


I have had this problem in some models of plasma sets before. In most cases the power supply and main drive boards had to be replaced. In a small number of cases the failure was the screen itself.

In all cases, the cost of the repair was expensive. For the screen failure, the set was scrapped.

Had the same problem.  Was quoted $800 to fix.  Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com

Read through all the posts.  Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with.  I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron!  Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.
