Question about Televison & Video
Which model do you have? The ATSC tuners were required in 42" TVs starting in the middle of 2005. Some Hitachi 42" TVs built before that date have an ATSC tuner but other models do not. The ones that didn't were usually called HD-ready TVs. For those models, you need a set-top box to receive OTA signals (except for some low power stations that continue to broadcast an analog signal).
If you provide your model number, I'll try to confirm the tuner information. If you look at the model information plaque on the back of the TV, you will see some information about when the unit was manufactured. If it was built in 2006 or later, you can be sure that the unit has a digital tuner.
I hope this helps.

Hi it sounds like it has had an elctric fault like a resistor failing.
The click you heard would be a internal switch that cuts off the elctric supply to the screen to stop furthe damage hapening.
It could even be something simple like a bad solder and in that case will need locating and resoldering.
How old is the telly and how often is it used.
When you switch it off leave it off for about an hour then try again if you have allready done this then it probably is a blown resistor are you sure nothing has been pressed on controll have you tried seeing if you can acess the menu screen via the remote and see if that comes up on the screen let me know ok
