Hitachi 46UX50B high voltage transformer issue

I was just told my HItachi 46UX50B needs a new high voltage transformer, but they want $500 to fix it. The tv is 10 years old...but I found a replacement part for it for $100. Anyone know how difficult it is to change that out? I'm very handy with everything, but never messed with tv's before. Thanks for any assistance!

    I have a similar problem. When power button is pushed it shuts down immediately. Before turning on the power button . Inside the red led is lit with several green leds are lit. As soon as the power button is depressed all leds go out. Unplug and plug back in, all leds lite up. Though some do not seem to have the brightness as others. As soon as powe r button is depressed all go out. I need some direction in trouble shooting this problem.



    Thanks

We have a 27 inch RCA TV Entertainment Plus PIP. We have sound but no picture. The unit is about 10 years old.


The tv has lasted ten years which is better than average, I find fixing anything after that time is not cost effective and the likely hood of additional breakdowns is extremely high, because you are dealing with parts that are ten years old. But to address your problem, when you first turn on the tv can you hear high voltage been generated, if yes! you have a video problem, If no! you have a high voltage issue that will involve the high voltage transformer and other parts tied into the horizontal output circuits. A tv technician is recommended to address the situation and I advise an estimate.

Burning smell, then quit. 4 yrs old.


That is not a good sign, the problem is in the high voltage, especially if it was a funny smell it would indicate the high voltage transformer "flyback transformer" is toast along with other parts. The set is 4 years old, and new tv's are designed to break down anywhere from 3 to 5 years, probably more cost effective to buy new.

This tv is under five years old?Yes,it is worth fixing.Over five,i would compare the prices for a new LCD tv and the quote priced from the Tv Tech.for the old tv.This tv have high voltage problems around the Deflection circuitries area.Could be any things burn in this area.The high pitched whine sound,i'm sure it is from the FBT-the high voltages flyback transformer,high voltages current have no where to go.Must hire a tv tech. to troubleshoots and replace parts on the Deflection circuitries area.Also the FBT could be dead too,because HV Current bounces back forth and have no where else to go.The prices to troubleshoot unknown problems is about $400 bucks and plus cost of replacement of parts.

Sony kv 36xbr400 - Won't stay on


Problem is in the secondary power supply which provides power to high-voltage and scanning sections of main board. This is called BOARD D, and has the high-voltage section, flyback transformer, and control IC on it.

Can't be fixed by user, needs service tech and new part, around $300

Hitachi 50UX11K picture is scrambled


jansen6pack- I am currently repairing the same tv, what I found is that the video pak is going.I have checked pricing and the unit is about 500 bucks,but if you take it to a repair shop they may be able to repair it or send it away for repair. It may be worth the estimate charge. cooltekFeb.18/08

TV TURNS OFF AT DIFFERENT INTERVALS


How old is your TV?
TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss. If the set is at least 10 years old this is typical and not worth repairing. If less, figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
Hope ya fix it!

Sounds like you have a short in your power supply load. Probably the high voltage transformer and/or horizontal output transistor. Stargazer P.S. I've found that a lot of the newer sets are prone to high voltage transformer failure.

Hitachi model cu4601b/k


I had this problem in a 46UX50B (I think that's the model), and it turned out to be some capacitors in the power circuit(?). After the service guy replaced those, it hasn't failed to come on since.
