Short your lamp door switch.. it may cause cooling issues but it will work. put on a table take the back off look in the area that the lamp door is there will be a switch.. trip it and tape it closed.. then turn it on if the lamp turns on you've got the right one..

If you play this TV 24-7 you might need Lamp most lamps last between 5,000hrs of playing time,so when lamp has been played for 5,000hours then lamp goes bad.
Did you say the lamp blinks red? I assume you meant the lamp status indicator light. That probably means the lamp is burned out. Take the lamp assembly out and inspect the bulb. If you see a visibly burned capsule or broken wire inside, that's your problem (you don't need to remove the lamp from the assembly to inspect it, and don't touch the lamp itself - see next paragraph). When you replace it, be sure you clean all of the vents in both the front and back of the set. Dust-clogged vents will cause a bulb to burn out prematurely, or even explode. You may need to remove the back cover (unplug first!) to clean out a dust filter for the lamp cooling duct.
You can save money by buying a bare bulb and rewiring it into the lamp housing, but be absolutely careful never to touch the new bulb with bare fingers - the contaminants from your fingertips may cause the bulb to explode when it gets hot. Wear disposable vinyl gloves (the kind restaurant food handlers use) for this job. The gloves may be included with the new bulb.
Set a regular cleaning schedule for the vents. How often depends on how quickly the dust builds up. Just don't let them get completely covered with dust.
I contacted Hitachi about this problem and they were very cooperative with me. They agreed to replace the light engine. When I mentioned that I had done some reseach on the internet and saw that they repaced the light engine and covered the cost of labor for some other customers, they said that they would submit a request for the labor for the repair. As it turned out Hitachi covered the part and labor for the repair. I first contacted Hitachi in March 2009, By mid May the service-center recieved the part and performed the repair.
