This update covers to the following Hitachi models and chassis
46UX50B/51K, 50UX52B/53K, 60UX54B/55K, 50SBX70B, 60SBX72B, 70SBX74B. All projection televisions using the AP73 & 74 chassis's From Dennis Viereck
SYMPTOM:
Intermittent loss of Raster, On Screen Display, sometimes sound. BUT ALWAYS HAS HIGH VOLTAGE! Also removing power and reapplying it again restores operation.
THE PROBLEM: There is a lack of a secondary ground for the CRT Dag connected to each CRT board. You can identify this missing ground on the CRT board by locating two vacant pins on each CRT driver board near the CRT socket. The connector is named P801, P831, and P861 relative to each board. The pin nearest the socket is the ground pin in question. The pin furthest from the socket is connected to the cathode of the CRT.

OBJECTIVE: Run a separate ground wire from the "GROUND" pin on each CRT board to the chassis ground. You can use the circuit board mounting screw on the frame under the green CRT. See drawing below.
DIRECTIONS: Obtain 3 wires 10, 14, and 18 inches long. The wire is 18 gauge stranded with an insulated jacket. Attach one wire to each ground pin on the CRT socket. Choose the correct length of wire so that all wires will connect to the circuit board mounting screw near the center of the chassis frame.

EXPLANATION: The extra ground is needed if an internal arc occurs in the CRT. This energy must find a path to ground. Before, the only path to ground is through the signal ground wire on the RGB drive connector. This thin wire does not go directly to chassis ground and is inadequate ground for the CRT dag. If the energy level of the discharge is high enough it may corrupt the data flow on the data & clock lines or negatively effect the OSD microprocessor. Since electricity takes the shortest path to ground, the additional ground wire will route the majority of that static pulse to chassis ground quicker and reduce the possibility of corrupting operation of the OSD processor.

Tv went crack while watching. Picture and sound went out & red light flashing.Waited a min,turned off and back ok with picture and sound returning concerned if we should continue using or not?


Hello,
As long as you can see and here the picture with no problems you should be fine. The tv's put it heat which make things expand and contract. Sometimes things creek and crack. I've had two tv's that do that. Don't hesitate to keep a fire extinguisher handy though along with some alarms.(houses should have these at all times anyways)

AV Receiver - Sound not getting through to speakers.


Before you do anything else, make sure no tiny strands of speaker wire from one channel haven't got in contact with the speaker wires from the other channel. Check first on the back of the receiver, then at the back of each speaker.This can cause the circuit breakers for that channel to shut it off when there is audio. It can also blow the fuses inside your receiver. It only takes one tiny strand to blow your amp.

Sony KV-32S40 32" TV problem


intermittent problems can usuall be liked to bad solder connections. And sony typically has some that will develop after a few years in the power supply. so check for bad sodler connections throught the main board & give a close look to the power supply & check you work after to make sure you have no shorted pins. good luck.
