Hitachi televisions have been on the market for more than 50 years, and there are some common problems that seem to show up among consumers nationwide. Common problems range from a decrease to picture quality, to an unexplainable loss of power. Fix Hitachi televisions using simple troubleshooting tips.
Press the "Power" button on your Hitachi television remote control.
Wait 30 seconds to see if the TV comes on. Press "Power", again.
Unplug your television's power cord from the outlet, if there is still no power to your TV. After 30 seconds plug it back in.
Try to turn your Hitachi television "On" again. If your TV still doesn't work, you should contact a local TV repairman.
Change the channel to make sure the poor picture quality is the fault of your Hitachi television. If you notice problems while watching cable TV, try watching a DVD to see if the problem persists. If the poor picture quality only displays on certain channels, the problem is with that particular device. If the problem persists over all channels and devices, you know you require Hitachi television repairs.
Check the antenna connection in back of your Hitachi television set. Your antenna, cable or satellite signal should plug into the "Antenna In" connector. Check the cable plug, make sure it's in the right place and not loose.
Look inside the cable that connects your antenna, cable or satellite signal to your television set. If the copper lead wire is broken, you will not have a good picture. Replace the cable to fix the problem.
Unplug any devices that share the same wall outlet or surge protector as your Hitachi television. Some devices, such as a vacuum cleaner or even battery operated toys, can cause radio interference, which will decrease the quality of your picture. Stop using these devices when you use your television set if you notice interference.
