Question about Hitachi 50VS810 Television

1 Answer

I have a Hitachi 50vs810 - Turn tv on and in about 5-10 minutes the picture turn of and I hear a noise like clicking of buzzing. It smells as if something is burning as wel.

Tv was working ok, then the last couple of times I turned it on it would work for maybe 10 minutes and then shut itself off. That happen the first time and I just turned it back on and it worked fine. Next time I turned the tv on it did it again, but this time I noticed a burning smell and a clicking buzzing noise as it the tv shut itself down.

SOURCE: No power all of a sudden

Check IC601, C603 for leakage, I601 and vertical pulse detector QN05

for poor convergence check RK42 for open circuit.

SOURCE: hitachi 46ex3b/4k turns on,sound, no picture black screen!

First check for a faulty capacitor on the power supply board as it sounds like that could be the first place to start. Before you touch any capacitors PLEASE find articles on the internet concerning discharging them as one stray discharge incorrectly could not only destry your tv but hurt you or even KILL!!! Ignore any articles that tell you to use a screwdriver. Good luck.

Hitachi model 50vs810 is blurry when you turn it on then clears up after about 45 minutes to an hour

Just open the back cover of the HDTV and look for the black plastic transformer with two red wires it is the plyback transformer there is two little knobs one for the screen and the other one is for the focus. Just adjust the focus knob either clock wise or counter clock wise its depends on what the effects in you pictures if nothing happens, then it is the convergence IC problem, need to replace.
Feel free to ask whatever the result.

Bissell won't turn on

the motor could be ceased up. do you hear a buzzing noise? if you dont hear a buzzing noise, turn it on for about 1 minute, unless it starts smelling hot or starts smoking. if nothing happens after that, try replacing the power cord.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light

The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.
