Hi, we have just bought a second hand Hitachi Hi Plasma TV Model PD1, 42PMA400A. We have a wall bracket but what we'd eally like is a stand ... the base plate and two stems that go into the bottom of...

If you search on Ebay for your TV's exact model number, sometimes you can find a replacement stand for it there from someone who has their TV mounted to the wall and is no longer using it. These are normally fairly heavy and bulky items, so Ebay purchase prices and shipping costs can vary widely.

I did not see any for your exact model of TV available there when I looked, but the online selection changes daily, so you can always keep checking back. Just search on Ebay for 'HITACHI TV STAND' or 'HITACHI TV BASE' and you will see a wide variety of them available for different Hitachi TV models as well as what the average price for them is.
Otherwise you can just buy a generic wall mount floor stand for around $100 which bolts to the TV like a wall mount, but actually sits on the floor instead of being bolted to the wall.

Here are some links to a few different models currently available on Ebay which include pictures so you can see what I mean:

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

My Hitachi tv model p42h401a will not turn on. The "standby"light is not on either. I have checked the power supply and that is working.

Have you opened the actual TV and checked the power supply board inside? Because that is what it is. You need a new one.

Any problem with lg 60pg60. good tv??

I as a technician that repairs LG,Sony,Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Samsung ,etc..Have found that LG is the one brand that I have nothing bad to say about.I love working on their products and they have the best support for technicians compared to all other brands.You as a customer can benifit from this because of the vast knowledge that technicians will have if you were to have a problem.As I stated I work on all brands in warranty and out and LG parts are cheaper than most.On the other hand you may buy another brand only to findout it was made by LG. Philips,Toshiba,are examples of this some of their units are made by LG,And chances are 50% of the Plasmas on the market contain LG made plasma panels.Good luck hope this helps.

What tv to buy

wouldn't buy a vizio if my life depended on it. Check out good name brands such as Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi, and Mitsubishi. no matter what you get its going to brake. I would recommend a 5year extended warranty with any new set you get these days. Also get LCD not plasma!
Let me know if you have more questions or if you have a certain model number you are looking at. With your price point in minde you most likley will need to look at a 42" in these brands. Dont think you will get anything bigger than that. Let me know!
