Re: Replacement Lamp Hitachi 50V500

I opened the back of the TV and sure enough, the micro switch that the lamp ,when in place, was supposed to touch the blue connector to make the connection - they were not touching so I used some sticky tape to build it up to see if it solved the problem and it did !

It must be a red light flashing as the 50V500 has no green lights on it. Make sure that when you place the lamp cover back on that it is activting the micro switch behind it. Otherwise the set will assume the door is open and won't ignite the lamp. Otherwise the ballast could be the issue.

I have hitachi 50v500 my screen went black and the lamp light comes on by the power button

Lamp light ON means TV needs new lamp as existing lamp is either broken or dead.
Replace lamp in TV, replacement procedure would be written in user manual.
Let me know if you have additional question.

The tv won't come on it gets power but no picture and on the indicator lights on the control panel only the lamp indicator comes on and just blinks. Did the lamp go out?

The manual says if the lamp light is blinking to check the lamp cover. If it is the temp light that is blinging check that the fans are not locked or shorted.

Hitachi 50v500 tv lamp light blinking no picture

I have one of these units, if the light is blinking and no picture as you have stated then you will need to replace the bulb in the unit. it is contained in the front of the unit behind the front panel on the right, you would remove the front panel after unplugging the unit, remove the single screw and pull out the box. replace it and then reverse the proces. the bulbs can be obtained for about $130.00 to $200.00 depending on where you get it from. Shop around.
