Did you replaced its lamp recently or removed lamp cover?

The television will not turn on. Initially, when the remote (or button on tv) was used you would hear it turn on and hear some volume and then it would turn itself off. A red light would flash, stop...

You did not specify the brand and model of your tv but based on experience the red light indicator flashing means a projection lamp problem. Check the lamp and lamp doors if properly secured. If symptom persist you need to replace the lamp.

Standy Light Flashes 6 times when I turn the TV on.

First thing I would try is the micro switch on the lamp door. The doors get overheated and warp pushing away from the switch. The micro switch shows the tv an open door and wont let the tv start. Depending on the model you have the lights mean different things but on a WEGA rear projection LCD it ususaly means a board has failed. I just had this problem on a KDF-60XBR950. The C2 digital board was bad. Good luck

Nothing happens only power button lights or turns off

Count the number of flashes for the red power button. I'm not a Hitachi owner, but you can track one down here on fixya and they''ll give you more info. One of the internal components have failed and is keeping the power supply unit from firing up. Do you hear a relay click when you try to turn it on? If so, how many times does it try to fire up?

Power light flashes five times and then nothing.

fail safe mode usually is caused by a short on your main bd. but if its a DLP or LCD projection tv to replace the lamp the door sometimes has a safety switch that will not alow a tv to turn on if the door was ajar

TV Won'T Turn On

A fuse is not your problem. this TV has a safty feture that when it senses a problem it cuts the power to prevent any fouther damage, when you un plug it the TV resets and it will turn on agian. I have the same TV Check the CRT light guns there are 3 of them. If one goes bad it will cause your problem.
