Plasma will not turn on, we have power at the cables

Please help, we have the above plasma HD TV and have never had a problem, we had had the TV on for a few minutes and was in the middle of changing the channel, when the TV lights/power to the TV went completly off, and has not come back on, the abc center has power the other cables that lead up to the TV have power (we checked) It is like a fuse has blown or something, but where are the fuses and what kind of fuses would it take

    would that be something simple to do? would I have to take the TV off the wall ( I can turn it on the mount) What are the odds that that is what it is?

    Thanks for your help

Unfortunately the problem is rarely a fuse. I have repaired many of these same type units and the problem could be many things but is most likely a failed main power supply unit. Boards can be rebuilt or replaced using vendors from ebay. I would start there. If you have a trusted local repair person see if he or she can help. Good luck, Dan

Try the power button on the tv. Your remote may have dead batteries. If no luck still, it sounds like your power supply unit has gone south. Check for warranty before attempting to repair.

Well it depends on what your watching on the tv. If you hook up an HDMI cable with a dvd player or other accessory, such as HD cable box on an HD channel it will swap to 720p.

Did you try another HDMI cable?

Did you try another DVD player?

If the above try-outs does not work for you, then the fault is most likely with the HDMI input processor area. For this the set will require service.

You can try a hard reset : Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

Connection for tv cable to hitachi 42" plasma Tv


there is no cable slot. the monitor is not a receiver. it has no tuner in it. it will need a signal from a tuner box. and that must be fed to the tv with an hdmi cable or a dvid cable for hd to work. see your manual for further information on cables. see your cable supplier for information on hd boxes available in your area. if you do not buy hd service, you will not get an hd signal. so you will see little difference from a non hd device. your dvd player may have hd capabilities, but will also need the same cable to deliver true hd signal.
the good news is that its fixable by using the right equipment.
good luck
