Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Yesterday while watching my Hitachi 51F500 I heard some rather loud noises (like someone droped microphone on the floor that was turned on). This happened several times. Then my TV would shut off by itself and come back on. Not knowing what the problem was I tried to shut the TV off, but it would not shut off so I unplugged it for the night. Today I plugged it back in and the same thing is happening. I also noticed that I have a second problem today with blue lines in the bottom left and bottom right hand corner. One time right before my TV shut off by itself I noticed that the word "STOP" showed up on the screen. I also hit the "magic focus" button to try to get rid of the blue and noticed that after it completed the "blue" the number (5) was displayed on screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Mike [email protected]
My guess is that the sound you heard was that of some High Voltage discharges that could have fed back and damaged some semiconductors including the microprocessor itself. Since it could be a very expensive repair, I would be very tempted to look around for a new HDTV by JVC or Toshiba. Hitachi has slipped a notch or two in recent years according to my experience.
