My hitachi 43fdx15b powers off

It goes off but the red light on the front stays lit. It does this a few times in a row then seems to work ok after that.

Try this procedure:

Adjust the green & blue CRT screens to match the red. Go into your picture menu adjust, turn color all the way down to a black & white picture. Now adjust each CRT screen so that you end up with a true black & white picture. Then adjust each focus control to get a sharp picture, and adjust each CRT focus one at a time for clarity by covering the other two up. Then go back into picture adjust and turn color half way up, you should see a better picture.

If you cannot get the blue & green to even out to a black & white screen you have other problems such as faulty CRT card on back of tube or it could even be that the video IC is faulty. If this is the case, then you may have to get a competent local technician to check the TV and get the necessary parts replaced. It could set you back between $200-$400, depending upon how many components need replacing.

You can also try a hard reset..Unplug all cables, including power from the back of TV. Wait for 4 hrs and reconnect them. Try and see if it works now.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

You can try replacing the convergence IC's ...should cost you about 350-400$..Its your choice at the end of the day,,It could also be that the lamp is blown and you will need it to be replaced. Best option..call a tech and get a quote and then decide..

This can be caused by a few things. The red crt/picture tube is going bad, which it would have to be replaced, tube can cost anywhere around $195 and up, if it is available. Another problem can be a bad transistor or IC on the red crt circuit board. Either way it should be taken to a repair shop. The average cost for repair could be over $300.

NO RED COLOR ON A 43FDX15B HITACHI 52


3 reasons for this.

1st reason the fluid is contaminated and thats why u dont get red.

2nd reason no red drive possibly due to a bad colour driver on the base of the tube neck.

3rd reason the tube is out.

Power light stay on


Sounds like you may have a sticking Relay S901 on the power board. Tapping the Relay may Make The Light Go On And Off. The relay part number is FJ00142 if you can find someone to work on the set for you as it would involve soldering in the new part. The number on the relay may be ALKS329 with the former part number being the Hitachi Part number.

Wont power up


I have seen that symptom many times. Most likely, the little blue capacitor next to the horizontal output transistor has shorted and popped the main B+ fuse. This is very common in those Hitachi projection sets. These parts should be replaced by a tech familiar with Hitachi projection sets.
