I have a Hitachi P50S601 TV and it wont power on at all.

Customer Question
I have a Hitachi P50S601...
I have a Hitachi P50S601 TV and it won't power on at all. I purchased a power supply board HA02202 online and it still doesn't come on, no fans or anything. Just some humming out of the power supply board. I called the company that sent it to me and they said it came out of a working TV. The only other board that could be causing the problem is the small board that the power cord plugs into that have the ON/OFF switch attached to it but that board is putting out 120vac.

Thanks for stopping by.

Initially, unplug the power cables going from the Power Supply to all other boards...

Attempt to power on - and let me know if the result is the same, or anything changes.

Thanks!

when all the other boards are unlugged I get nothing, not even the buzzing I heard before.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
What type of voltages are you getting for the Vs Va 5V etc? With everything except the smaller P/S board (aka Filter PWB) unplugged?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I don't know where to measure those.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Well that may be an initial problem with troubleshooting your set.
When you replace a P/S - you have to make an adjustment for the Va Vs and 5V based on the sticker on the inside of the set. No 2 sets are alike... and the tolerance for the Va is +/- .2V and Vs is +/- .1V

Reply with your panel voltage information, and whether you have a multimeter in order to proceed. (Do you have any experience with plasma tv repair?)
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I have a digital multimeter and I know how to use it. I have experience as an electronic tech so I could read the voltages if I knew where to read them (I don't have a schematic). I see a sticker that says

+5.1/+80-95/+50-70 V
4.5/4.9/3.0 A
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok - that's the correct sticker.

On the upper right side of your P/S - theres a CN99 cable connector.
Just to the left of it should be a 3 pin test point.



Pin1=Va
Pin2=Vs
Pin3=Ground.

Put your ground probe on any chassis metal (advise vacant screw hole) and power the set on - give me the voltages you get at pin 1 and 2 of the test point.

TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Oh - the sticker you're seeing is a broad voltage sticker. We need the panel voltage sticker.
It probably says LOT <N6> or something similar... then Vs Vw Va and Vx voltages listed

TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Also - check the front panel, and see if there are any LED indicators - if they are solid, flashing, and what color they are.
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Not getting any voltages on those pins. Tried different grounds. No luck.

Found the other sticker:
Vs= 88.9V Va= 65.4V
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
ok.
unplug the set.
plug in all the boards you unplugged back to the P/S
there is likely a shutdown circuit at work.

then take the same readings at pins 1 and 2 after powering on.
Put your probe on pin #1 as you power it on and watch it for any fluctuations.
Power down the set - then do the same on pin #2

Let me know what you find.

TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
P.S. I didnt indicate it earlier - but if you don't have an auto-ranging meter - we're looking for DC voltage.
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Yes, DC. Nothing on pin 1. Got 3.4 on pin 2.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok - the power supply isn't making the Vs or Va voltage.
Let's check for 5V output...

On the CN63 connector - what is the voltage at pin #1?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
5.3 with the connector connected. BTW thanks for hanging in there with me.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
ok - that's good.
we have to figure out why the Va and VS aren't being made.

Check the SBY+5V on connector CN63 pin 1 for that same 5.3V
Also check for 3.3V on pin 3

and let me know if there are any flashing or solid indicator lights on the front of the set and color.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Don't understand. I already checked the CN63 pin 1 with the connector attached and got 5.3V. I don't get anything on pin 3 on CN63 with the connector plugged in.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok.... then you're missing the low standby voltage as well.

The next one can be a little tricky -

On that same CN63 connector - pin 6 is the PoWER1 High and should read 5.6V (eventually) - may take a few seconds to build up.
Also - pin 7 is the PoWER2 High and should read 10-12V (eventually)

Is this happening? Test both individually - and let me know what you find.
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
pin 6 - 4.8
pin 7 - 3.2
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Do you think the power supply board is bad?
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Since neither of these are attaining full voltage - the Main-Digital PWB is suspect.

What was the original reason you replaced the P/S? Same no-power-on condition?

A few more things to check.

Do you have a CN68 connector on the P/S?

If yes - check pin 3 (Vpr2) for voltage - what do you find?
Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Now remove the CN6 connector (PSU-Logic Board cable) and re-check the Vpr2 voltage.

Is it present?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
No voltage on pin 3 of CN68 with or without connector plugged in.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
ok - that seals the deal then.

With no voltage on the Vpr2 (should be 3.3V) with the P/S-Logic power removed - it indicates an abnormality in the Standby Power Supply, and the P/S is defective.

Had there been Vpr2 voltage with the cable removed... but NOT when it was plugged back in - the Logic board MPU (Standby Power Supply) system whould have likely had a short circuit - and the Logic board then would have been the culprit.

From your readings - I am confident you have a defective P/S. Now whether it was SHIPPED defective - or another problem in your set CAUSED the defect... without further tests I can't say for certain.

For the sake of trying - plug everything in - except the power going to the XSus and Ysus boards... and power on. Does the "buzzing" stop?
Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
No it doesn't stop when I unplug the XSus and YSus boards. Btw buzzing sounds like it's coming from the L002 coil.
TV Technician: bluextc89, Technician replied 6 years ago
Source another P/S and when you get it - you can re-open this question, and I can continue with voltage setting.

I Suggest when the new board is installed - test it by itself (no peripherals plugged in) as we did above.

I am stepping out for a few hours. No need to reply until you get your new board.
If there is anything I feel I missed after I go through my reference material - I'll let you know. Right now - the PC I am at is not good for viewing much Laughing

Thanks!
