Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

43UWX19B DP1X Power Supply PWB Part #X901

HELP! I can't seem to find out what part this is? It was blown by a utility company's transformer failure that 'cross phased' and took out my TV amoung other appliances!
It shows the part in the service manual on the schmatic's but DOES NOT list the part in the 'parts list' in the manual?
Anybody know what this part is and where I can get it?
It looks like some sort of 'Double Protection Diode' since it links between the Hot and Neutral of the 120 volt in line.
I have a screen shot of the circuit from the manual here>>\X901.jpg
Tell me what you think?

    YES! Well sort of anyway!

    The TV works fine but I probably should also put that component back in to protect the TV!

    Any Idea what it is? I am posting a photo of what it looks like! Can you be of more help to me as to what it actually is and where I can get it to replace it?

    I am also probably going to take the jumper off the board that is in place of the fuse on the neutral side of the A/C in and (the board has a place for a fuse on the neutral side as well as the hot side of the A/C in but there is only a 6A-250 volt fuse on the hot side of the A/C in.) I probably would not be here if the manufacturer would have put a fuse on the neutral side of the A/C in!!!


    Tell Me What you think!!

    Ya, I understand the concept of the double diode's but I wanted to replace it with the same component, the component is not listed in the Service Manual under the parts list, otherwise I would have both a part number and a rating of the component.

    I could just go out and buy a couple of high current diode's and put them togeather but I wanted to use what the factory used!

    Yes, my voltage is 120 volts. I am in the USA. Do you think you have the correct replacement part?

    Thanks for all your help! At least I can head in the right direction and the TV STILL WORKS!! Although I was kind of looking forward to getting a new LDC or Plasma 1080p!!

    Thanks Again!

The part you seek is the varistor it is a surge protector and as saved many units from the very thing you discribed. the part # is AJ00322 you can get it from as well as the service manual.

The purpose of the part is to take the overload to hopefully avoid more damage to the TV.
Try to disconnect that part from the circuitry, just to see if the TV works.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

    That part is like connecting 2 diodes with their cathode together and the anode to the AC line.

    I have those parts if you need it.

    Let me know where to send it to.

    Is your AC voltage 120vac?

  • Jaime Hernandez Apr 19, 2008

    Great you understand all of this.

    I would suggest to call Hitachi and ask them for that particular part if they have it. I have seen many TVs like this but I did not come across any that had that particular part. They had other surge suppressor components but not the Diode Gun.

    These components were used in designs around or before 1995 but lately they have a different circuitry to protect against lighting.

    I do not have the exact part you are lookinf for.

Power supply humming

I think you have a 110 volt machine on which you are using a step down transformer. If so it seems that the voltage from the transformer is high or the current factor requirement is also insufficient . which can produce the hum or heat. Make sure the voltage is steady or else you will need to use a stabilizer or a proper power supply that is actually catering to the requirement of the machine. You have not mentioned the power factor of the machine and i suspect that the power supply used externally is insufficient.

Monitor goes black

You may have failed backlight inverter circuits, power supply, lamp assemblies. First place to look will be the power supply section.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Amp turns on just fine but no sound comes out

Amp Failure:
There are many different ways that an amp can fail but the two most common failures are shorted output transistors and blown power supply transistors (< those are not blown). There are several types of protection circuits in amplifiers. The most common are over-current and thermal. The over-current protection is supposed to protect the output transistors. Sometimes it doesn't work well enough to prevent the failure of the output transistors but it will work well enough to shut the supply down before the power supply FETs are destroyed. If the amp remains in protect mode, goes into protect mode or blows the fuse as soon as the remote voltage is applied, shorted output transistors are almost certainly the cause. If the fuse protecting the amp is too large, if the protection circuit doesn't respond quickly enough or if the power supply is poorly designed, the power supply transistors may fail. If you see a lot of black soot on the power supply transistors (near the power transformer), the power supply transistors have failed. Soot on the board doesn't necessarily mean the transistors have failed. Sometimes, technicians don't clean up the mess from a previous failure. Transistor Failure/Checking Transistors:
In general, when a transistor fails, it will either short (common for output AND power supply transistors) or open (common for power supply transistors). Transistors act like valves. They control the current flowing through a circuit. A shorted transistor acts like a valve that's stuck open (passing too much current). In the case of an output transistor, the shorted transistors tries to deliver the full rail voltage to the speaker output terminal. If you've ever seen a damaged amp that pushed or pulled the speaker cone to its limits when the amp powered up (common on some Rockford amplifiers), that was almost certainly due to a shorted output transistor. When checking transistors, you most commonly look for shorted connections inside the transistor. You do this by using a multimeter to look for low resistance connections between the transistor's terminals.

Seems as you have blown an output. Seek repairs.

Set will not turn on!! please help

No, all you need to do is notice all led and see which goes off first and which stay on. Then I can help you.

Tv trouble shooting

whenever any fusible resistance fails means there is a short ckt in tv. failure is mainly due to main filter cap or rectifire diode os switching ckt failure(here as you cleared str.) remember while servicing power supply isolate hor. section for safety purpose.& connect it only after power supply output is ok &after checking parts in hor. ouyput section. if this seems to be ok then go for hor.output ckt failure like hor output,flyback transformer & cap& diodes connected with it.
