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

1 Answer Thanks...thanks.... Ok, both fan filters are clean. Power supply is good (I just replaced the entire Power P.W.B. board with one from a working unit). Lamp sensor is good (making good contact on its switch). So...the indication of the TEMP LED blinking could mean could mean what? Or should I worry about what it means? Again...many thanks...

Good Day, egear00;
Try looking at this, since you sound like a TECH;
The Fan alarm is activated when the Fan does not run. This can happen in two different circumstances.

  1. When the Fan Fails due to a malfunction.
  2. When the Power is turned off. The FAN +12 regulators turn off and the fans quit.
(1) When the Fan Fails:
In this situation the fan alarm will be activated. Inside each fan is a hall element that keeps pin 1 of the connector pulled low when the fan rotates. If the fan stops, the pull up resistor connected back to the Fan 12+ pulls the alarm line high. This high is routed through two Diodes to the shutdown circuit of Q905, Q906. When the base of Q905 goes high, it's collector pulls the Power 1 (Power On) command line low which shuts off the relay driver Q903. The purpose of Q906 is to make the shutdown circuit appear like an SCR. If there's any pull up voltage being supplied, (in this case from the Power 1 line), the emitter to collector current of Q906 will keep Q905 in the On condition. This circuit will remain latched as long as the Power 1 line remain in the on condition.
An additional route for the Fan Alarm is out the PPS2 connector pin 9 to Q562. The Fan Alarm high will cause Q562 to turn on and pull the Fan Alarm pin 48 of the Microprocessor low. When pin 48 goes low, the Microprocessor will in turn activate the Temp LED and cause it to Blink. (See the Temp Alarm Circuit for more details).
(2) When the Power is turned off.
When the Power is turned off, the Fans do not run because the Fan +12V regulators I906 and I907 are turned off. This would generate a false Fan Alarm, so the Microprocessor outputs a High from pin 56 to Pin 7 of the PPS2 connector. This high turn on the Fan Alarm Enable transistor Q908. When Q908 is turned on, the collector is held low to prevent a Fan Alarm. This low keeps D916 and D918 cathodes held low. - click-to-view.gif Click to view Larger Image separately.

The power light flashes green likes it turning on then flashes red. Is there a fuse problem. I just replaced the bulb less than a month ago and it worked fine the last 3 weeks.

Good day!

That problem is usually happen when the power supply or main board have defective parts not fuse!.Lets find out the problem.

Follow this simple and easy procedure of troubleshooting:

  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.Loosening all screws at the back.
  2. After that,Try to look at the power supply.When you already find it,plug-in and power it on again to perform a voltage data.Check the 5vdc for the system board supply by using multimeter tester (range to DC).It should have 5vdc in actual reading or tolerance (+/-) 0.5vdc and also look for leak/bulge on top capacitors,replace if any.If the reading is OK and no bulge on top capacitors,the power supply is in good condition.
  3. Next,if the power supply is in good condition.The problem could be on system board and unfortunately that is not for D.I.Y because of very sensitive and complicated parts of that board.The only remedy for that is to buy a new system board.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you for using FixYa.

Magnavox FP5210 W104 was watching fell asleep woke up tv off will not turn on. Could it be the main power supply board bad? Fuse appears ok. Where to locate parts Thanks.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.

Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.

Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps kits can be bought online ,are inexpensive and, if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.

This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Suddenly turned off without warning Sony KDS-50A2000


All you need is to open the back cover of the television and check on for dry soldering at the power stage of the printed circuit board, also check for bulged capacitors, if found replace with same rating of voltages , but if otherwise Ur power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics’ and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get ur tv power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope this helout, Good luck....

Tv still wont provide a pic after lamp replacement

there are several things that can cause this problem with this unit first off look at the back there is a vent opening when turning the set on there is a little box fan that needs to be running if its sluggish or stalled this can cause the unit not to initialize and operate
secondly there are caps in the DM moduel and power supply that can cause this sysmptom as well
and there is a possability of a color wheel or a ballast board also causing the problem
start with the fan first

I am trying to locate the power supply board on jvc HD-56FC97 but am not sure where it is. Can someone please help, thank you. Power light and lamp/program light blink together when tv is powered on. I can...

If you have never replaced the lamp then I suspect that first as fans starting up means the power supply is working ok. The lamp may look good but is failing to fire. The part number is TS-CL110UAA.

My t.v. shuts off

Please check basic things first, like first of all fuse is it OK, then check the power supply mainly the big one capacitor in power supply, if it is popped then replace it, further check voltages of main power supply, if you have proper tools and digital meter along with solder iron the check the voltages accordingly, the problem is in power supply unit. And if you can not do this by yourself then please call any expert nearby.
Thanks for using fixya.
