probably needs new scan drive board along with upper and lower buffer boards. it wont be cheap and its best to have a tv shop do it.

I can't help you because after 26 months of ownership mine is doing the same thing (started on 7-12-09). Judging by the number of people with the same complaint I believe Hitachi knows that they have bad boards but refuses to replace them for customers unless they are within warranty. It also explains why the merchant that sold it to me in 2007 stopped offering Hitachi in 2008.
I'm disgusted because I'm anticipating a $300-$500 repair bill simply because Hitachi's design did not provide an external way of resetting it. Impossible to get to the menu to do a reset within 12 seconds before it starts the powering on booting cycle again.
Adding salt to the injury, mine is wall mounted and repair people will only work on it if it is readily accessilble when they walk in the door or if it is brought to the shop. Know what a 55" plasma TV weighs? Too much.

SOURCE: Black out?!?!?
I turned on my 55HDS69 a week ago and WAAH-BOOM, No more picture but the sound was fine. The resolution underway at a local repair shop is to replace the upper & lower buffers. The TV is 2 yrs and nine months old. I did not buy the extended warranty as I expected a $3000+ TV to last longer than 3 years especially since my house is like a climate controlled class 40 clean room and teh TV is not over used. The parts are ~$225, The labor is ~$225. Hitcahi would have sent the parts for free had I been within the 2-year window (1 yr regular warranty + 1 yr grace period). It was absolutely silly of me to think HITACHI would do the right thing and send me parts at 2 yrs and 9 months (sarcasm). I can tell you one thing......There is NFW I will ever buy a Hitachi product again and that includes anything even affiliated with Hitachi (inc. imbedded electronics). I will steer every person on the planet away from them in the future. My original plan was to ship the TV to the Hitachi CEO to make a point but the Hitachi folks don't deserve that kind of respect (Unless it blows out again) :(

Seems as if your high voltage power supply went kaput. This happens sometimes see the complaint
See: http://www.partstore.com/Model/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/55HDS69.aspx for a list of parts and you can see if it is worth fixing
