Question about Hitachi 51F59 51" HDTV Projection Television

3 Answers

TV won't come on, power clicks on then off

TV is a Hitachi 51F59A. I have it connected to DirecTV H2 receiver and an ultra power surge protector. Apparently there was a power outage while I was not here. When I click the on button on the remote (also directly on the TV) the power clicks on then off very quickly. I have tried unplugging from surge and waiting, unplugging surge, turning off the power then waiting basically everything. This is a new tv, after looking at the owner's manual says there is a built in surge, not sure if that is causing complications.

Hey, I realized my tv was still under warranty. Hitachi has been great. They found someone in my area, they have ordered the "board" and are replacing it for free. Here is a posting that appears to be what the issue is http://www.riddledtv.com/forums/hitachi-51f59a-wouldnt-come-on-fixed-t127.html

Problem for me is I can't do something like this guy suggests and the TV repair guy suggested that you never do anything like that.

My tv is not 'seeing' any of the hdmi devices plugged into it.


surge protectors do not work very well. They dont really stop mildly high voltages. If you can plug the Directv receiver into another TV and it works, then you have a bad digital board in your TV.

If your receiver was connected to any power source and that power source was not a surge protector strip there may be damage to the receiver as lighting travels. Another thing to consider is the fact that many people will put their equipment on surge protectors but the cable is still connected to the TV etc...This is just another avenue for the lightning to get into the home and blow up your system. I always disconnect any cable from my computer and TV. The power source from the wall is also unplugged when there is a storm just to be sure. Surge protectors are limited in their use as well. I don't believe they can take too many lightning hits. It is best to change them out.

No power


Unplug the tv press power on and plug it back in.
some of these units have a reset clearly marked on the back.
connect direct to wall as the surge protector may now have issue.

I have the same problem with mine. i,m pretty sure that it is the built in surge protector is bad. Try unplugging the tv for 30 seconds then plug it back in and turn it on. If your surge protector has not completely gone bad this might work a few times. mine won't turn on at all anymore.
