20 Most Recent Hitachi 50VS810 Television Questions & Answers


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Hi, Heat is the enemy of electronics, and these sets operate hot. You might wish to unplug the TV for an hour or more. If this power reset does not allow the TV to turn on component failure is indicated. These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts which include millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Integrated circuits and transistors can go bad. This can cause other components to become defective, which can have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again since if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure what is causing the problem, which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the test equipment. I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix or button to push that would fix the TV but that is not the case or the solution needed to get the TV operating correctly.

If you wish to repair it yourself what type of electronic training do you have?

What type of TV test equipment do you own?

Do you own and know how to operate an oscilloscope?

If you decide this is not something that you can do I expect this repair will be about $250 to $450, depending on how many parts are found to be out of factory specifications, if the problem is a bad circuit board, and if the board can be repaired or has to be replaced. A small TV repair shop will often charge less for the repair than a large electronics repair facility.


Should you require further clarification, never hesitate to ask. It would be my pleasure to clarify my answer to your question. If after reviewing the above information, you have additional questions, I will be glad to answer them. My goal is your 100% satisfaction with all questions I answer.

if the picture is starting to look dim replace the lamp.

Yes. You will have to reset the lamp hours. It should be in your owners manual.

I have heard that this may work on your tv

1. Switch power ON, and press the TIMER button on the remote control transmitter, or the RESET button on the control panel, for approximately three seconds. The 'LAMP xxxx hr' message will appear on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.
2. Press the MENU button on the remote control transmitter, or the RESET button on the control panel, while the lamp timer is displayed. The 'LAMP xxxx [] -> 0 [|] CANCEL' message will then appear.
3. Press the [<|] and select 0, and wait until the timer display is cleared.

I am guessing it's an old(ish) TV. As a plasma the chances are that it is on it's way out.

Please Try new cables (HDMI etc)

I don't know but it probably isn't much different to most other tv/remote combinations where commands are given by the remote and carried out by the brain in the tv.
Start by pressing the Menu button and the main menu should appear onscreen and from there use the up, down, left and right buttons to navigate the main menu and the select button to select sub-menus and items from the menu(s) until you reach the section on channel search, installation, etc.

You would need to select MENU which, of course, you can't because you don't have a remote control.

First make sure that the current Source or Input is set to TV. This is usually the only reason for the error message you see. To select the source, look for a Source or Input button on the original remote. If you have an universal remote with a button with the Source/Input label, you may need to try alternative codes to make the button work. (Power and channel controls will often match across multiple codes for the TV manufacturer.) Alternatively, check if there is a Source/Input button on the TV or a section of the menu system with the function. Once you set this source, try again.

Note: there was a period when manufacturers sold some TVs without tuners. They were labeled HD-ready sets. These can't do a channel scan and do not have an RF antenna jack on the set.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your Hitachi TV for more information on setting the source on your set.

Under Audio or Audio Settings on the on-screen menu, TV Speakers is set to On. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input devices are secure. Switch to a different input device and verify there is sound from the TV speakers (for example, a DVD player or a gaming console).

It is reporting reduced air flow due to a clogged filter. Swing the case upwards, remove the filter and wash it is soapy water. Rinse, dry and replace it.

look on the back of the television and the DVD player, there should be a SCART socket and/or red, white and yellow AV sockets, either use a SCART lead and connect it to the SCART on the DVD player and the TV.Or use an AV lead with 3 auxiliary shape connectors and match the colour of each connector with the female sockets on both the TV and the DVD player instead of using the other component connections.

Without a remote control, you can't unlock it. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops; and by Online shopping.
