Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Fuse I actually have a Hitachi 51A500, but even Hitachi took a while to find it, so I am using the 51F500 for assistance. I recently had a problem with my power coming into my house(bad neutral line( and it shot 240volts through my tv and knocked it out. I had a service man come out and opened it up, took a tester and touched it to a couple boards and told me my horizontal is out and wanted $450 to repair it. I may be wrong but I don't think you can test the horizontal without power running to the TV, is this correct? I opened the back and noticed that there is a slot for a 6A 125v fuse, it is located just to the right of where the power cord enters the back of the tv. This fuse is missing, did he take it and could this be my problem? I would like to know if it is what type fuse do I need to get?

Left side of sreen is blurry/halo effect. Right side is normal. Magic focus stops when it gets to green and flashes green number 5 on bottom left of screen. (Hitachi 2003 51" projection HDTV)

SET uses two of the STK-392-150 convergence chips for this, both need to be replaced and set adjusted.

Parts cost on EBAY will be under 25 dollars. I can help if you are do it yourself person. A shop will get 250-300 for this but you can do it for much less.

Can I assist you?

What channel do i use to use the DVI entry?

None, channels are only on the tv source entry. The DVI is just another AV entry, to use it you just select it from the other AV sources.

Leaky CRT's

i would not repair unless you also replace any circxuit boards that the liquid fell on. although it is now water it will corrode the parts & will most likely cause further problems. the only way to ensure that future problems are not related to this is to replace the boards affected. good luck.

Hitachi 51F500 (Two separate problems?)

My guess is that the sound you heard was that of some High Voltage discharges that could have fed back and damaged some semiconductors including the microprocessor itself. Since it could be a very expensive repair, I would be very tempted to look around for a new HDTV by JVC or Toshiba. Hitachi has slipped a notch or two in recent years according to my experience.
