Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I've got a Hitachi 50v710 that is about 3 years old. About a month ago I replaced the bulb and housing unit and it has worked flawlessly since then until yesterday. Son was playing video games on it and it simply turned off on him. Now the TV will only turn on for about a minute at a time before it turns itself off. When it does turn on you can definitely see the picture clearly until it powers itself off. When it does power down, it takes an abnormally long time for it to finally power all the way off. We're talking 3-5 minutes. As soon as you turn it back on, same situation repeats itself. I've taken the panels off and reseated all connections and used compressed air to remove dust but still having the problem. Any suggestions???
Check the door lamp switch & lamp pwr switch, boss on the door or lamp assy may not close switch. apply tape to boss

I think your replacement lamp is not a Phillips Original Lamp used for you model. Third party lamps work well only for a few weeks once they reach their lifetime your TV acts as you described. Beware these lamps can damage your television in many ways. Check lamp for dark areas especially around the bulb tip. Good luck...

This is a very common problem with lcd and projection screen.. what is happening power supply are being over loaded manufacture did not think about the long term use of game and computer graphics which put out a higher amout of graphics which over works the power supply over time... but they did make them easily replaceable with in unit thier usally connect to main board with plug lamen terms...
if possible take unit apart locate wire from the socket for power cord follow wire to power supply disconnect.. socket maybe be directly attached to powersupply module either way detach locate part number on board call manufactuer order new one or take it to your local tv shop and have them replace items onboard that are bad
