I have a Hitachi 51UWX20b. I had a convergence issue where the blue would not properly focus and the auto convergence would stop in the middle. I replaced the IC's but the TV would turn on but would not deliver a signal. I checked the voltages comming into the to convergence board and found I was not getting 115v from the power board. Looks like this is dues to a "protector" at the end of the power board. My next step is to replace it. Two questions:
1. Where can I get this protector (labeled 3000)
2. What could cause this to blow? I have to admit I found this site post buying the chips (cheap) from the not recommended place....

Thanks,
Patrick

I would guess that you are talking about a pico fuse. You need to refer to a service manual to verify what the part is, or give the location number to see if someone recognizes it. You may have connected something incorrectly or discharged a capacitor or shorted a connection. Lots of possibilities. You could have a simultaneous failure of another component but this is unlikely.

Thanks for the response. I figured it was a pico fuse of some type. The part number is: crxt491003. the location is just before the bridge connection the convergence board to the power board. I have found a few for sale online but no info on the rating or anything else. Does this need to be specially ordered or is there a regular pico fuse that will work?

Thank you

It is unlikely that the part number is meaningful to anyone. Post the LOCATION number on the board or the description for that part number. I suspect that it is a 3 A pico fuse that you can get from a number of places. 3000 = 3000mA if it is a pico fuse.

Thanks for the help. I found another post of yours that says the Hitachi Protectors are basically pico fuses...where 3000 = 3A.

Problem solved with a 3A fuse.
