Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
It sounds like something internal is off. It is sensing that it's still over heated which its not which is why it continues to stay on well after the cool down period. That can happen to the older generations of this model since it was not yet fixed. There is a huge possibility that it might have a firm ware upgrade to fix that problem for free. You can contact the manufacturer regarding that information either they can send it to you, mail a CD with it on there, or you can click onto it off of their website if it's available on there immediately.
Have you unplugged it for a while then plugged it back into the wall? Some times that can fix the problem. Chances are, if it continues to stay on that it's something internal that can not be fixed since it might be a really small internal chip or board.
Let us know how it goes. You can always contact the manufacturers auth. service centers since they are familiar with the technology you currently own. Most places will look at it, and if its totally non fixable allow you to just discard it otherwise charge you nothing. If it needs to be repaired it depends on where you bring it, it could be per hour or potentially a flat rate plus costs of parts.
Let me know how it goes. I'm eager to hear if the unplugging it might reset it. That can help some times in the product.
Also, any other weird issues going on with it? Vertical lines on the set or blots here and there on the screen that appears to be internal? That can really tell that it might be the mother board slowly going out.

If the power light blinks slowly,
you've tried to turn on the TV during
the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait
approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.
If light blinks, pauses for about a
minute, and blinks again: the lamp is
trying to turn on (TV will turn on
when successful). If TV doesn't turn
on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.
To order lamp call 1-800-338-0376.
Have your TV serial number
and lamp type available (you'll
