Question about Hitachi 61SDX01B 61" Rear Projection Television
The standby light is not blinking. Sound is good and I can still blindly scroll through the input selection. The picture faded to black, it took about 4 minutes fade completely. I took the back of the tv off and none of the three bulbs come on at all, although I still get sound. Any ideas?

Maybe this will help. My set is approximately 8 years old and has run without any problems during that time. Then one day I noticed that the picture was extremely dark. You could just barely make out the image. Also the picture was very slow to come up on the screen. It turns out the problem was an open RP41 resistor in the power supply heater circuit. This resistor is a 1.5 ohm 2 watt resistor. A little hard to find, but if you find it it will cost about 50 cents. Resistor was replaced and picture now comes up in 10 to 15 seconds as normal and brighness is back to normal. The resistor can be purchased from NTE Electronics at www.nteinc.com. Their part number is 2W1D5.

Is the standby light blinking? If so how many times? It could help narrow down where the problem is. At this point it could be anywhere. Most likely in the high voltage section. Get me more info and I will try to help.
