Question about Hitachi 55HDS69 55 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 55" Plasma HDTV, 1 yr old, suddenly lost picture and sound, but power light still on.

TV has been working fine, but picture and sound suddenly went off. Blue power light still on. Remote had no effect on any functions. Turned TV off manually with power switch, then back on. Red power light stays on, but won't go back to blue. Unplugged for 24 hours--no change. I do not have extended warranty, so I am hoping for some suggestions...Purchased 14 months ago, so I am SOL!!!
Please help!

    I have just experienced the same problem w/ my 55HDS69. All of a sudden my picture went out, and all I can get to happen is a continuous cycle of maybe a half second of picture and sound blurb and then a blank screen for about 10-15 seconds--then the blue light flashes again (as if the TV has just been turned on), I get the slight picture and blurb, and that cycle repeats itself.... I've had it for about a year and a half..What's Wrong!!

It sounds like a shutdown circuit is being activated. This is normal in cases where the power supply id drawing excessive current. I would suggest that you get this looked at by a qualified professional. This is because this problem may be in the power supply and the voltages can get dangerous in this section of the TV set.

In any event if this is a power supply problem chances are the technician will just have to replace the power supply. Which should cost from 150-250 dollars.

I hope this helps

I would guess that it is the main power supply board or the main digital board given what is written here.

Hiya!

Sounds like it's on the wrong input, maybe it's analog tuner. Have you tried changing it's input?

No picture or sound, just blinking power light


Hi...I am sorry to say that I had this exact problem. It ended up being the upper and lower panel drives. I contacted Hitachi and even though my unit was out of warranty, they agree to pay for parts. I paid for labor myself, and it cost me $199.95.

Good luck with it...let me know how it turns out for you.

Black out?!?!?


I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.

Koala babe, narrow the problem. Is there any sign of power presence in the unit. Could be just a power issue. You did not mention any lights indication on your front panel.

Good luck.
