Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...

Damaged Optical light engine, this is not the only Hitachi with this problem the ones before the oval was red and was finally settled two years ago in a class action lawsuit.

Its a Dlp that uses a lamp---the yellow cast suggests a damaged Optical light Engine----Google the model number with problems and you may learn more---if the engine is bad it may not be cost effective to repair the set.

May be time to have a technician look at it--I would suspect the ballast the powers the lamp but their are other possible reasons for this.

Sounds like a fan issue. Cery common problem the fans tend to slow down over time and you can get a shutdown due to the fan alot of the time. Might even try blowing any dust buildup on the fan to see if that helps.

The set uses a lamp (model indicated) for the light source--usually a 2000 hour life if OEM and may be getting ready to fail.

Its a gamble but you would have to replace it to know. I often look when the lamp is removed to see if the glass pillar inside the lamp is bent from the heat or not--a sign of a bad lamp.

My lamp model is lp700 where can I order that part

Hitachi... | Answered on May 27, 2012


It could be the lamp---if you remove the lamp look to see if it is shattered inside---average life on lamp is 2,000 hours or 2 years.

says Hitachi at top here---what is model number? Also check to see if it does it on all inputs like tuner, Dvd etc.

Hitachi... | Answered on May 16, 2012


this works. remove lamp and place in your freezer for 5 minutes. reinstall. when unit comes on, go to menu and find lamp setting. reset lamp to zero hours. the unit still thinks it has old lamp

Since the model indicated (55vg825) is a DLP which uses a lamp--it does sound like you have a damaged "optical light engine" which is a expensive repair---confirm model number to me and or Contact Hitachi about a possible recall or repair on that model.
