Hi

It is highly likely that the set has failing electrolytic capacitors in the power supply and/or linear power stages. At this age,it is almost guaranteed. There are no serviceable parts in the set that can make for an easy fix when this sort of problem arises. For a set that age, I would recommend looking at replacements. Money spent on an old set may be a false economy as new sets of this size have some down so much in value. Happy to talk to you more about it. Sorry to be the vendor of bad news, but this is really how it is

regards

    The set was built 9 years ago. I am afraid all warranties will be long gone for this model. You may like to get a technician out to look at it, this will vary in costs from $40 to $100 depending on who you get to have a look. If you do get a quote for the repairs, I strongly recommend getting a Hitachi authorised agent to have a look for you. This way, you get the advantage of manufacturer backed service. I advise checking out the new digital technology to replace this older unit. You wont regret it. Good luck

=It soundl sike a possible problem with the power supply board.

The TV set must be thoroughly inspected by a technician to locate and fix the problem.

    The TV does not turn on and stays in standby because it is gone in protect mode, this happens when the TV main chipset detects that there is an internal problem, sugh as a wrong voltage, a capacitor that had blown, a defective integrated circuit, or any other internal fault.

    Try leaving the TVunplugged a little longer, to drain power completely, just in case the protection circuit is stuck in error mode.

    If the TV does not restart after leaving it unplugged overnight, that means that there is an internal fault, and something inside TV must be replaced or re-soldered (bad joint).

    You can call a technician using the phone number printed on the owner manual, or checking on Hitachi website, or letting us know your location.

    Calling Hitachi you can also ask the price for a warranty extension.

    A warranty extension will cover any repair for the next year in case the original warranty is expired.
    A warranty extension is oten less expensive than a single repair job.

How do I fix My 50 inch Hitachi Ultravision TV?


Likely the lamp in the set has failed here which does make sense if the picture was dim before---a lot of lamps just before failing all the way dim down.

Sounds like the DLP lamp failed. You can decipher the Hitachi flashing red light. That should help to be sure.
The DLP lamp replacement is fairly straightforward and can be done with minimal tools

TV turns on for 2 second and then it is off


Your TV may have detected an error. Try first to have the TV unplugged overnight just to clear it out then observe it after turning it back on.
