Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Rca jack input very distorted

I have a 10 year old rear projection tv that just started having this problem, when i use any of the inputs on the tv, with exception of the svideo jacks, there is a lot of distortion that sort of looks like zigzag lines across the screen and there is very little color. This tv has just started to do this and the rca cords work fine on other televisions. the coaxial input behaves the same way as the rca jacks and all the sets of rca jacks on the tv also do the same ting

any help would be appreciated

This is probably a short in the TV, most likely a ground problem.

Phillips tv has red tint across screen


This brand is known for getting discolored CRT cooling fluid in the blue and green CRTs. At 10 years old, it's almost for sure .. unless never used. A bit expensive repair. Don't attempt this yourself unless you're both a TV tech and a transmission mechanic ,, LOL.

Keep in mind that the phono jacks are typically tuned to a much lower input voltage than CD jacks, because old turntables put out a much lower voltage. If you are using turntables manufactured pretty much anytime after the 80's, their output voltage will be higher than the phono (which is short for phonograph, which gives you an idea of the timeline of this connector) input voltage allows, so you'll get distortion. This is not indicative of a defect in the amp or the turntables, it's just a sign of the times - there are very few devices in existence today that you could possibly hook to a phono input without getting distortion.
If you need to use the CD inputs for something else, I would buy an input selector from Amazon that will let you plug multiple components into one set of inputs, then you just select which component you want to use at any given time. There are models of these allowing anywhere from 2 to 10 different components hooked up to the same input, so pricing varies dramatically of course, but a standard 2- or 3-component input switcher should only cost about ten bucks.

How should I hook up a dvd player? Which one of the input jacks. I am using rca connectors


mikehomco,

On the rear of the DVD locate the composite video output and audio outputs. The connectors will be RCA females. Video is yellow, right audio is red and left audio is right. Connect one end of your patch cable to the appropriate output color. On the TV find the video input one. Connect the yellow, red and white ends of the cord to the same colors on the TV, video input 1. If your TV has a source selection button use it to locate video input one. If not use the menu. Go to input select and choose video input one. Enjoy the movie.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Got cox Digital cable box today, cox can not tell me how to hook up to box to make it rec/play. Info I read old cox papers from 2002 says I need a vcr controller, Cox does not know what that is and it...


For a standard VCR which is what most people have, all you need to do is connect a yellow RCA cable for video from the yellow output jack on the cable box rear panel to the VCR's yellow video input jack on its rear panel. Next connect a white RCA audio cable from the cable box white RCA output jack to the VCRs white RCA audio input jack. You can record a cable show by selecting the LINE input on the VCR and selecting the TV show on the cable box.

Now for playback, connect the VCR to your TV. Connect a yellow video cable from the VCR's yellow output jack to the TV's yellow video input jack. Same for the white audio connection. Select on the TV, the source input for the VCR. Its not complicated and you should not need any other devices for a standard setup with a digital cable box and vcr.

5 year old RCA 50 inch projection tv. Picture went off.


If you are using component cables make sure they are all connected properly( pushed all the way in and in the correct input). I have seen the red cable come loose several times and cause no red color in the picture. When you change the lamp it is easy to pull on one of those cables and cause it to come loose.

Hopefully you have the problem solved.

If not, the RCA plugs, listed as input 1 and 2 are shown on channel 91 and 92.

I recommend connecting the DVD to either input. Turn on the DVD. Then run the auto programming function of the TV. It will find and program the channel for the DVD. Then use the channel up or down on the remote you are currently using and you should find a working DVD.

Hope this helps.
