Question about Hitachi P50H401 50 in. Plasma HDTV
We are having a problem with our 50 inch plasma It is making a humming sound and there are black lines coming up from the bottom of the tv covering half the screen. It looks like there is mesh on half the tv
It will depend on the age of the set but the lines are either a bad board or a bad display unit .

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi knows about it. You need to contact Hitachis customer RELATIONS department (not regular customer service) at 800-654-7013 and tell Hitachi what the TV is doing and that you have a bad light engine. Initially, they will act they have not heard of the problem but they will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once you have the tech come out and they tell you that it's a bad light engine, call Hitachi back, at the 800 # I listed and tell them what the tech said. They will call the dealer directly and then Hitachi will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitach will cover the cost of the part (part cost around $1500)
Here's the kicker, if your TV is not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part but you will have to pay the install. We recently had this happen to us and our install was $400...worth it to us on a $3600 TV thats only 3 years old.
Please deal only with Hitachi customer relations and DO NOT let any dealer or store where you purchased the TV tell you that you will have to pay the $1500 for the part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are aware of it and they will send it out to the dealer your using and HITACHI will pay for the part...you only pay the install. Good Luck!

Hitachi did in fact stand behind their product and resolved the problem. My hats off to them! Panel was replaced due to faulty ribbon cable supplying signal from one of the drivers. Unfortunately for my specific issue there wasno other solution as the ribbon cable in sealed inside the glass panel.

Almost for certain your power supply board is bad, Can be repaired at the component level only if you have some electronics savy! Good Luck!

Seems as if your high voltage power supply went kaput. This happens sometimes see the complaint
