Picture quality is really dark, have cleaned everything, still doesn't work
Presuming you cleaned the lens and the mirror you may have a problem in (yes) the power supply---some of these develop an issue where the filament voltage for the 3 picture tubes goes down as a resistor in the supply from age goes UP in resistance---going to need a meter and a service manual to find that.If that is beyond you then consider getting a tech or a shop to look at the set.Let me know if you have questions.
Crt coolant kit
Replacing the coolant is not going to help a dark picture and is not for a do it yourself repair---it is toxic and dangerous to replace unless qualified.
Picture quality is very dark.
Well, that explains a lot----mirror or the lens or even the screen may be coated with grime-----be careful if you attempt to clean that screen, easy to damage and expensive to replace--what about the mirror and the 3 lens?
Hitachi 53SDX01B sound
This set had lots of audio problems- some idiot decided to put the entire audio circuit on a single compact board---it develops all kinds of bad solder connections on the numerous flat Pak chips on both top and bottom of the board.Board no longer available from Hitachi (srs board) and rebuild usually is over 150 plus shipping.We send the board out for that as I have seen top notch experts spend hours trying to solder the board and not after have a working set.Hitachi just crammed too many parts in too small an area and the heat bakes the board---Understand I was seeing this failure when these sets first came out--failing after a week or two in someones home.

I need to replace the dust cover on my Hitachi 53SDX01B
the problem here is Hitachi usually if it still has it sells all three screens as a unit---expensive.You may want to search with GOOGLE the internet as some companies sell replacement "protective" screen replacements.I have even seen one time someone found a piece of plexi-glass and had it cut to the exact size and thickness for a replacement.

I have a Hitachi 53SDX01B.
First press the menu button on the television, if it pops up the menu list, then it means the cable is faulty. Try to hook up your television to dvd player to confirm if the picture will come on, if it does, that confirms it that it is the cable that is faulty.
But if the test shows it is not the cable, then it means the t-con board of the television is bad and need to be replaced. Also check the Y and Z sus.
Replacing the t-con board will definitely solve the problem for you.
All the best.

The color looks red and the picture is not clear.
This problem is very common with rear projection TV's.
is related to one or more of the colour guns being out of alignment or needing to be replaced.
The only way to correct this issue is to have a technician come in and
fix it or bring it into a repair center. I personally would suggest
purchasing a new TV. The cost of getting them aligned is usually more
then a basic LCD.
The original MSRP was 4100 I believe.
Hope this helps
