Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blackout screens I recently upgraded to U-verse AT&T and I am getting blackout screens for a few seconds at a time primarily when there are explosion, high action or adds. I have had the TV for about 5 years I already fixed the convergence about 2 years ago, and other than the convergence - I have had no problems with the unit. I had standard definition cable TV and a Humax STB getting 1080i OTA for all this time (at least since the convergence fix) with no issues. However, since U-verse (2 months ago) I continually get blackout screens. AT&T is convinced that it is the TV. When i change th setting to standard Definition i have no isses - only at HiDef. the AT&T box is connected via component. I learned on the Internet that there was a different Hitachi model that had similar issues with progressive DVD playbacks - but could not find absolutely no information on my model with my specific issue. Help? Thank you! Chester Wojna

    I got my problem solved. It was actually the TV. I called the Hitachi Rep in my area and asked them if they had a service bulletin issued for my specific symptoms and they said YES. So the Tech came and just changed the Horizontal POS from "0" to "1" and now everything works perfect - $95 dollars later.

    Thank you all!, Chester

    I have this same problem all the time and also have ATT Uverse. Does anyone have the steps to change this "horizontal POS"? I do have the repair manual for the TV, would it be called this if I looked in the manual? Thanks for the help!

Good Day;
I would suspect U-VERSE. I had it installed recently ...had problems. They came out and changed "wires". Now okay. Please call them first. Good Luck, big IRISH.

The power supply is not latching. This is common on those machines when they have bad capacitors. You can change the whole power supply out if you are versed in electronic disassembly.

Am using verizon 9530 unlocked. phone is working, the backlight is active on buttons...!! the screen is not active.. i could answer / receive calls.. can hear the notifications of receiving emails /...


When you get your blackberry screen blackout? After your blackberry 9530 unlocked or a few days after you unlocked your phone? Did you get my point? If you get that blackout screen after blackberry unlocked process try to reset your phone to default factory setting and if still not working try to reinstall your blackberry os, but if you get that blackout screen a few days after you unlock your phone looks like your screen already broken and you need to replace it in your nearest local mobile repair shop.

Black Screen at full brightness


It sounds like your backlight or inverter is failing, and soon you won't be able to see a picture on any setting. This is common for LCD screens over time, they start out with the occasional blackout and then progressively get worse. You can take it to be repaired, but the cost severely outweighs the cost of purchasing a new laptop.
