Try doing the following, you will need to use original remote:

1) To reset/change the SMART LOCK code, follow these steps.

Press the MENU button on the remote to display the on-screen menu.

Press the Cursor Up (also known as CH + button, above menu button) or Cursor Down (CH - below the menu button) to highlight SMART LOCK. Then press the Cursor Right (VOL + button to right of menu button) to display the SmartLock ACCESS CODE screen.

Using the numbers on the remote keypad, enter 0 7 1 1. " INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the screen. Enter the code 0 7 1 1 again.

Cursor Down to CHANGE CODE and enter 0 7 1 1 and then CONFIRM CODE and enter 0 7 1 1.

Press the STATUS / EXIT button (left of CH +) to save the new code in memory.

2) If the grandkids have locked out any channels, then you will have to perform the following steps:

Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight CLEAR ALL, right arrow.

You should then see CHANNEL....ALL, LOCK....YES, ALL UNLOCKED.

3) To turn SMART LOCK off, follow these steps.

Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow,


Keep me updated, and if this work do not forget to vote the solution.

The lock function will block out the picture and sound of the selected channel or video input.
It can also be used to keep the TV from being viewed for a scheduled time period that you set.
The code to enter the Locks feature is a four digit secret code number. The factory preset code is 0000.
Use the number buttons to select secret code.
When ENGAGE LOCK is selected, SET CHANNEL LOCK, SET INPUT LOCK, and SET FRONT PANEL LOCK can be set individually.
When SET CHANNEL LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for the chosen channel will be blocked out.
When SET INPUT LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for all video inputs and the picture and sound for channels 3, 4 will be
blocked out.
When FRONT PANEL LOCK is turned on, all buttons on the Front Panel will be deactivated, except the Power button.
When TV TIME LOCK is turned on (❒ TIME LOCK) you can set the BEGIN and END times (THUMB STICK ) and the TV
cannot be viewed during that time period (Set clock first). Use CURSOR  or  to highlight ONCE (TV will time out one time
only), DAILY (TV will time out every day), WEEKLY (TV will time out one time a week).

If you forget your secret code, use the factory code 7777 to erase your key number. This will reset the secret code number back to the
factory preset 0000.
Press EXIT to quit the menu.

If ANT A and ANT B are in the same signal source mode, when a channel is locked, it is locked
on both antenna inputs.

    Also have you tried unplugging the set for a couple hours yet at all? That is always one of the first things to try as well to reset your tv.
    Thanks,

If it is in EXCELLENT shape, 500 is not too much, but I would only offer 400 or 450. Hitachis seem to be pretty solid units. Ask if they have had any work done to the tv when you pick it up so you can know what to expect.

Hitachi tv magic focus does not work


Your problem is the convergence circuit. This is very common in CRT projection sets like yours. There are a couple of IC's that need to be changed and possibly some resistors. A good repair shop will run you $400-$500 to do the repair.

65 S 500 HITACHI


I would suggest contacting the local Tv repair shops in your area to see if one is available used, as many shops save the screen assembly when they disassemble a set that isnt worth repairing. It may be available through Hitachi, but doubtful. I have sources for screen assemblies but unfortunately not the 65 in screens.

F#$% reson the bulb when, twice on me, that's another $400.
