Question about Hitachi SSF420TR 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
I purchased a HITACHI tv many years ago, and the TV still works beautiful. The problem is that since we had a remote control we never bothered to look for the slot where the buttons are to change the TV manually. so now we lost the remote and cannot find the owners manual. we looked at the back and this is the information there" HITACHI 1991 MODEL 46EX1B. Can anyone please give me an idea where to search for the buttons. we looked everywhere, and the only slot we are familiar with is the one to turn the TV on and OFF that's it. no other slots are visible in the etire TV. that's so weird. Thanks so much for your help....MARIA
I have an old (1994) hitachi tv and the controls are located under a panel on the lower front that flips down so you can access the channel and volume controls.

The most common problems I have found in this model is solder joints going out in the vertical and on the driver transformer.
I would say the picture tubes are probably starting to go out by now and the technology is changing.
Look at the new sets. LCD and DLP are using LEDs.
Manufactures are beginning to equip their sets with ATSC tuners that bring in High Def. stations by using a pair of rabbit ears.
In a little over a year most signals must be High Definition and the government is supposed to send out checks for about 40.00 to help fray the costs of converter boxes to convert the older set.
So, my thoughts are, the set is about 17 years old. The cost of repari and the repair itself would be like putting a bandaid on it.
Capacitors by now are beginning to dry out and solder joints are starting to open up, not to mention that the picture tubes are getting weak and changing luminance and fading..
Most sets I repair at this age have future repairs.
Check out the new technology.
