Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Getting close...thanks big Irish, Wow, thanks for helping me AGAIN!! Ok, the ballast does have voltage, in fact it will spark and even allow the lamp to turn on. But the whole set shuts off after just a moment. That is when the TEMP light will blink constantly. If the problem is the ballast...how does this affect the TEMP light? Or does is matter about the TEMP light? The blinking TEMP light is supposed to mean that the fan is locked or shorted...not the case here, both fans work fine. So...looks like ballast problem here?? Thank you...

Egear00; OK, you have voltage, check this:
1. Filters make sure both are clean
2. Check the power supply and check for bad CAP's
3. Check the lamp sensor.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Samsung hlt4675sx/xaa lamp ballast keeps going out


Hello Leeann,

Wow 3 ballasts is too many too quick. Did this solve you problem every time?

Have you checked the voltage going to the ballast? this might be a power supply issue. The power going into the ballast should be between 320V - 380V. Please do not try to measure the power going to the lamp! The ignition charge can be 15kV and it is dangerous to you and a multimeter.. please let me know and I will try to help you get to the bottom of this

KF42WE610 bad lamp... and ballast?


Hi,
DLP Lamp has electrodes inside and ballast generates high voltage that makes spark on these electrodes thus got high bright light. New lamp wont die due to bad ballast so replace lamp and see tv works or not.
This tv has self diagnostic feature, turn On tv and let it shut down, now check standby light that would be blinking in specific order, for example 3 or 4 times blink then pause for 3 seconds and again blinks.
Let me know how many times standby light blinking in this tv to help you with more info.
Thanks.

It keeps shutting off. Anywhere from 2 or 3 times


Could be several things. First replace lamp.Remove lamp door and put it back on making sure tab on door presses door switch downward when closed. Can you heard spinning noise from front. Bad color wheel will cause shutdown. Look at big cap on ballast . iff swollen replace lamp, ballast and power board. Is voltage to ballast from power board below 350 volts if so replace power board. hope this helps. Most common are lamp and door switch in up position rather than downward .

Projection lamp explodes 3 times in four years would you consider this a defective tv???


Howdy,
No, but the TV has a defective ballast. DLP TV's Lamps should on an average last at least 2 years. Any DLP Lamp that has a short life it is the ballast. Some are easy to replace, some are more difficult. Depening on Brand the cost will vary. I would recommend that you seek an Authorized Service Dealer and make you tell them about the lamp replacement history and of ballast.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Samsung dlp acts as though the lamp is gone. Put


It may be the ballast or aother problem. First, unplug your TV for about 5 minutes, plug back in. LISTEN very carfully when you turn the TV on. (put ear on the left hand side of TV towards the back) if you hear a clicking sound. It may be your light engine. BUT most important what lights on front panel are blinking.

Hope this was helpful, Big Irish.

I have replaced the bulb but still it will not turn you can hear everything start up but it seems as not enough power to light the bulb help please I have a samsung DLP SP50L7HX it still shows the bulb...


Hi,Sometimes its something simple.Did you close the door cover,it has a switch that wont let lamp power on if its not pressed.Did you reset the lamp timer? you can do this by unplugging the tv wait 5 min and plug it back again.Any strange noises like clicking or buzzing sounds? If you heard clicking it will be an issue w the board that powers the lamp its called the ballast.If you heard buzzing it could be an issue with the color wheel,which is a small disc that creates tyhe colors on your tv. Last question did you get the Original Philips lamp or a generic? If you got a generic send it back for testing or get refund and get yourself the original.Email me if you have further questions at r2d2repair@gmail.com have a blessed life!
