Screen does not switch on, mode light flashes orange

Dear Sirs, I have a 5 year-old Hitachi 32PD3200 tv. It has always worked fine, but a couple of days ago, the mode light, which is normally red when in standby mode and gren when on, was flashing ornage. I cannot get the tv to switch on, so i cannot access the menus to try to fix it that way. I have unplugged it for a day to allow it to reset, to no avail, but cannot think what else to do. Can you help?

Re: Screen does not switch on, mode light flashes orange

Need to remove the Input module circuit box from the bottom of the center and wait for few minutes before putting it back.

This will reset the system from this persistant power off problem.

Best way to prevent it from happening again is to manually switch of the power switch before doing any powering off and on. Most commonly happens during a power failure and power coming back on with the switch in the on position.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Hitachi tv won't turn on, only flashing orange and blue light

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

What are u using for a signal source? Cable, Satellite, Over the air? My best guess is that you hit a wrong button such as the "source" button and the remote doesn't know what device you are wanting to opperate. Press volume up then down and see what light lights up?
If it is other than "TV" then you probably have the wrong device selected... Hope this helps... Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

Hi, this description usually indicates power supply failure, you can verify this by checking the output voltage of power supply. Cause of the error can be electrolyte capacitors. You can identify them by swelling at the top of the condenser. If you have the technical ability? so there are a few more options for testing. In any case always possible to replace all power supply. Good luck! Let me know if everything worked out, or if you need further guidanc

Flashing green light

The TV is on protect mode. This happens when an internal fault is detected. Start leaving the TV unplugged overnight. This will drain power discharging capacitor and internal circuits, and sometimes can solve minor problems. If the TV still does not start , it must be taken apart and tested. Parts that commonly fail are the PSU, controller board, low buffer and sustain boards. If the TV is only 13 months old, then it is worth calling Hitachi and asking for a warranty extension or a discounted repair. Regards.

Lamp light

Check the lamp switch that is located inside the door. Place the lamp in, and stick a flathead screwdriver in the slot (just make sure it moves) hold it there, and turn on the Tv. If that doesn't work check the new lamp, is it a generic lamp, if so they dont always work. If you still have your old orig lamp, take the old lamp out of that housing, and out the new lamp in the old housing. This should fix the problem.
