Re: Hitachi 51G500A and the screen when blank
Hi I am vortash I have just looked at the service manual for this set and it actually does not use a bulb as it is not an Lcd or DLP projection TV . It actually employs three CRT based tubes that produce the picture with automatic focus and convergence systems .
If you do not have the manual for this set you can download it from
http://www.safemanuals.com free of charge
It says that if you have sound and no picture turn the set off and unplug it for 3o seconds then replace plug and turn on from switch on set not from the wall plug switch .. as this may reset the tv and cure the problem .. hope this helps regrads Vortash

This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks
Hi, 110`s & 150`s are both replaced by stk 392-120`s. which run waaay cooler because the 120``s are rated at 4 amps while the 110`s and 150`s are 3 amp devices , the real key is to make absolutely certain you are not buying generics (which are everywhere on the internet), there should
be NO black print on the back side and a 4 digit code (not 5) on the front, top right corner, the originals or OEM`s are never $8.99, usually run about $12-15 and are made by Sanyo but the word sanyo will NOT be on the IC`s , so go by the info above, be sure to check for burnt resistors next to the heatsinks as well, good luck, video-tek
