The flashing red light means that the tv is in protection mode. The tv will not turn on when the red LED is flashing. The most common problem for Hitachi are the convergence output ic's. But they useually do not cause the LED to flash. This tv does also have a problem with Q777 going bad. This will cause the LED to flash. If Q777 is bad the horizontal circuit needs to be modified. This must be done by a tech.

no picture condition could be caused by a problem in the horizontal deflection circuit or a power supply failure. A horizontal deflection problem often are followed by open fuses due to shorted components such as a h.o. transistor ofcourse there are a lot more componentd that constitute this circuit. Another no picture condition could be caused by defective convergence power amps. these amps usually give an clear indicator when they are about to quit(color curved or missaligned, double color images etc.) this is a common problem with projection tvs and that is where I would tell the tv tech to start looking.

NO picture or sound.  The red power light goes on and the green lights inside of tv are on. but nothing is working on the screen

You have a problem with the high voltage section that drive the projectors. Look in the back to see if the three projectors are lit. Then we go from there.

Shuts off after about 1 hr and then we have to power off

The TV might be on sleep mode, so it will stay on for an hour, then turn off again. You'll need to turn it off through the menu

The most commond problem is Q777. Check that transistor and check Q657 and EP98 also. This should take care of the problem.

First of all: If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. It can be much more tricky then working on an amp, and dangerous, be warned... If you don't want to spend too much money, and since you're describing intermittent failures, I would suggest that you open it up and clean the hell out of it, then resolder the connections to all hot parts, plus any solder points that look cracked. Replacing parts can start as low as 10 $, and up to hundreds, so better try resoldering first. Good luck
