Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

1 Answer

Shuts off I have a 55vg825 and have never had any problems with it. Recently my wife and I were watching tv and the picture went out and the two red lights (heat and lamp) started flashing and then shut off. We were able to turn the tv back on and worked again for a half hour, then shut off. The next day, I let the tv run all day long and nothing happened. It is strange as this does not happen all the time. But only three times. I do have this on a surge protector. The only things I have added to the tv has been a ps3 and a cooling unit for the ps3. I have called a couple of repair places, but they all want between $160-$200 just to look at it. As a tech myself, I see this as a complete ripoff, since I don't charge unless I find and fix the problem. Thanks in advance!

    I have the same problem, but the T.V will not turn back on again. No picture what so ever. The red light lamp comes on now. When I turn the TV on the two lights flashes then the red light stays on for the lamp.

Might be a bad bulb or bad ballast or even a bad light engine, 160-200 is too much to look at, sears charges 96 to look at in home.

Wife was watching tv and the picture went out. We currently have direct tv for the service provider. Tried watching a dvd and had the same result. However, sound works on the tv just no picture.

I would start by obviously checking all connections on the back of the tv. Sounds like maybe your Yellow RCA cable might have creeped out. Red and White RCAs are typically for sound and Yellow is for Video. Hope this helps

Hitachi 55VG825

Refer to owners manual on code of blinking lights. 2 red blinks means fan is about to fail etc.. thats just an example of course. See the manual it will tell you what the blinking means. It will also tell you if you can fix it or you need a tech.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...

Sony 57 in Rear Projection TV

If the picture is playing fine and you notice that the background is getting more and more red, until it is too red and the set shuts down, it could be that the red screen control is set just a bit too high. If this is the case, you can probably correct this yourself. If you are watching a perfect picture and then it suddenly flashes a very bright red, with thin red lines in the pictureand then shuts down, it usually means that the red picture tube has developed a short in it, between the cathode and heater. A good tech might be able to remove the short by arcing, but if the short persists then the red tube will have to be replaced. Either way, this is something that should only be done by a qualified tech.
