The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Sounds like it started "Protection Mode" because of a failed electronic part inside the TV. I don't have the actual Service Manual for your TV to tell you what the code means.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The common part to go bad for flat panel screens circuit board that powers the screen. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.
You have a few choices:
1. You can again try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

The Blue Blinking Light Hitachi.
When the light blinks 4 times it means you can possibly have 4 problems with your plasma.
3. Power Supply
4. Sdr U or D
A good way to determine if you can fix this problem yourself is if you can build a PC. If you cant this can cost you upwards of 600$ to fix.
First get a flat area and lay a soft blanket down and lay your TV down so the back is up. Then goto your PC and goto Google and type "P50T501 Service Manual .PDF" you can buy it or if you look hard enough you can get it for free. Next in the service manual it will have a diagram of the Circuit Boards and their locations. Take the back off your Plasma and check the 4 boards. Look for burn marks, cracks, smoke mark. Take your time and look closely. When you find the broken boards unplug it and take the part number and find the replacement online. Plug it in and you should be good to go.
When i had 4 blinking lights i had to change my SDR U and D boards. They cost 100's a piece for Refurbished boards. Keep in mind im a contractor not a techno geek, and i was able to diagnose and fix my problem rather easy.

Does anyone know how to fix this very common Hitachi problem without paying a repair man? And if you did pay a repair man did they fix the problem, and how much was it? I absolutely LOVED this TV before this happened. :(

Unfortunately, this indicates a technical fault with the TV which can only be fixed by a service engineer.
If the light is blue and blinks 3 times, it is indicating a fault with one (or both) of 2 circuit boards inside. They are the XSUS or YSUS boards and will possibly need replacing.
At least knowing this might help you ascertain a quote as too how much the repair will cost.

How many times does the light flash... i.e. flash flash flash flash flash...pause, then repeats?
If you include the make and model of the TV in your reply this would be helpful.
