Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

60v500 Hi Big Irish...I see that you have helped tons of people, and I am hoping that you might find time to help me!! When I plug in my 60v500, both fans power on, and the bulb lights up also. The screen will "flicker" for just a moment also. When this happens, all of the LEDs on the Power P.W.B. light up, and on the front panel, the LEDs indicate normal boot up sequence. In about 3-5 seconds, both fans, and the bulb power off. When this happens, all of the LEDs on the Power P.W.B. turn off EXCEPT (green) D913...It will stay on until the TV is unplugged. I have already replaced both fans AND the Power P.W.B. board, and the bulb is almost brand new. Oh, and when it shuts off, on the front panel, the TEMP link will blink, but the others stay off. What should I look at now? Thank you...and feel free to email me at!!!

Good Day, eger00;
Try this:

First, some clarification related to this Flowchart is necessary. The block which states * PSL #4 pin Voltage sequence is like below? a) high (3s) b) low (3s) c) high (15s) d) low (3s). This indicates seconds in which the ballast is attempting to light the Lamp. The Connector PSL is a very small connector that actually faces down with the ballast is installed. It is also very difficult to access. It's much easier to use the Spark Gap process for determining if the Ballast is attempting to fire up the Lamp. Take a look at the bottom of the flow chart below. If the Spark Gap sparks when trying to turn on the set, it's almost a guarantee that the ballast is working OK and it's the Lamp that's defective. Also, the LEDs on the front of the LCD will flash in sequence Left to right as this process is attempting to light the Lamp. The front LEDs doesn't guarantee that the ballast is functioning correctly, but it does indicate the System Control process for lighting the Lamp is working.

Big screen got wet in back.

Hi Check the power cord that is properly plugged in on the TV and in the wall. Check that breaker pannel that all are on. Unplug TV for half hour and try again. Hope that helps.

Lamp vs Ballast

This is to help explain the short lives of Lamps.

WARRANTY: If a lamp fails within the first year replace Lamp and Ballast.
If Lamp explodes do not replace Ballast only lamp, but if lamp didn’t explode replace both.

If you experience more than one Lamp failure within one year of use replace the Ballast.

The Panasonic Brand offers a Ballast repair kit (LSUC0022), it only works about 20% of the time.

I would not recommend this replacement kit. It will get you past the 30-45 day warranty period in most cases but it will not be the proper FIX to the customer’s unit and they will only call you back or (most important) call another Service Center.

I have experienced maybe 100 customers that had other Service Companies come out and only replace the Lamp. When the Lamp and Ballast should have been replaced.

I hope this helps the Customers and the Technicians in their judgment.

If I was redundant I apologize, just trying to help.

It sounds like you have a Power Supply Board problem. The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM852 & CM853; 2200ufd 25volts.

Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.

This chart shows were voltages are on the ballast. If you the voltages then suspect the ballast, if no voltage suspect the the power source.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

No, the lamp will not correct this. The TV has a bad light engine, it's very common for this TV and very expensive. Call the manufacture and try to get a concession for the part. They normally give it about 75% of the time.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Light engine replacement

Good Day, tech;

Let's suspect poor cable connections or pinched, BUT I have received bad light engines. Make sure you ordered the correct Part Number. There are two (models) of them; check Model Number, some are 50V500 and 50V500A.

What's your input to indicate red or green???

Let me know if this helpful, big IRISH.
