Question about Hitachi 51SWX20B 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv turns itself on and off

For a while now i'll go into tv room and find set turned on. at times it will turn itself off while I'm watching. nobody can seem to find anything wrong,at least till warranty is over!! It bothers me because it is very intermitant and until they are watching it happen before them, nobody believes its happening. I'm upset that while I'm on holidays or gone for a few days it will be on! I have seen it turn it turn itself on and when I've gone back later, its off! I have not seen it turn on actually,but find red light on and faint glow to picturte as it has no input because other components are off. It had been shut-off correctly when I left the room. ghosts have been suggested, but I have a hard time with that one!

Check for any loose contact with any of the connection sockets at the power board, to main board. Re-seat them all once and check. Contact any service technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

42pfl5522d/05 tv screen is blue and cant tune or watch anything?


With the TV on pull out it's AC plug and leave it for a few minutes (10 minimum)
Then switch off the manual switch you left on, on the TV set.
Plug in again and turn on the TV by the manual button (this should be standby mode) then turn fully on as usual by the remote control.
It may need complete or part setting up again per the instructions but you'll hopefully find that all will soon be well.

Tv turns on by itself


Hey Bubba,
If your TV is turning on by itself at about the same time each day you may have a timer activated, turn it it off, the TV's micro might need too be reset. To reset unplug your TV from the a/c outlet for at least 5 minutes.

Watching tv and it turn off


Please update this with a make and model number. WIthout that information there is little assistance I can provide. Also, does this occur all the time or only after the set has been on for a while?
Thanks,
Dan

Flickering - Toshiba 62HMX84


it could be as simple as the tv feeding back on itself in a dark room.
it is adjusting the light level because of what it sees ambient in the room.
turn on a light near the tv and see if it stays constant now.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.

My Tv is turning off by itself


if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
