Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 51F500 (Two separate problems?)

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]

    I paid $1500 3 years a go for the TV. The repair man is going to charge me $100 for trip plus parts and labor. I think you can buy the TV new for between $800 - $1000. Is the repair I'm looking at worth it???? Looking for knowledgable advice.

    Thanks again.

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.

I have a Delonghi W130E and last night after about 5 hours of use we heard a loud bang from the machine. I got up and turned the machine off and there was a smaller bang ( noise ) from the machine.


Possible the swinging fins jammed up. Turn it back on and watch the swing. Not very many moving parts. If it's the blower wheel you will know!!

Watching TV and all of a sudden a loud pop came from the back of the set. Doesn't turn back on after unplugging.


Hello
Check its power supply regulator board. The pop sound you heard may be due to an explosion to any electrolytic capcitors on it. If the line voltage exceeds, this fault will happen. just repalce the damaged component. It is best to replace this board as card basis.

Hitachi 51f500 picture looks 3d


If you go into the customer menu and select convergence and red or blue are skewed and will not adjust---you have a convergence circuit problem.

51f500 uses two of the STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150 convergence IC chips. Both are the same but the 150 chip is a longer lasting part than the 110 chip. Both chips and any bad protect resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the Hitachi remote.

Most of the time just both chips need to be replaced and the set adjusted.

Considering you can buy all the parts needed for under 30 dollars on Ebay if you or someone you know can do this repair you can save a lot of money--most shops are going to get 300 or more. I can give you general instructions and tell you the best seller to get the chips from on Ebay---I buy the ones I use there.

Let me know if you have questions or need advice-I am here to help people.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.
