If you know just a little about electronics I can suggest several things. If not you'll need a tech...
Forst check F901 in the power supply, if it's open replace it and D902. If not open, check R964 for broken solder connections. The power supply in this unit is very commonly the culprit of a dead unit as you're describing... It's not usually an expensive repair for a qualified shop if any of this sounds a bit beyond you...
Take care Juliet and let me know how it turns out.

Lamps have a limited life. They useually last 1000 hours or so. If the TV is on from 07:00 until say 23:00 every day, that equates to 60 days.
There is no such lamp as a "One time replacement lamp" as they do not last for ever.
The average life of a lamp is just about 6 months.
If the picture is cloudy is probably needs the optice cleaning. It is very fiddly and damage can occur easily so get an authorised Hitachi repair service department to clean it for you. It should be carried out in your home and will take less than an hour. If anything gets broken, it is not your problem if they are heavy handed.

Hope that helps.

Blue Haze in middle of screen progressively getting larger

This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks

Hitachi 53uwx10ba turns on & off when off red flashing light/clic

Same problem. Replaced both convergence ICs about 5 months ago. Worked fince since then and just recently no sound, no video, blinking red on front panel and clicking sound. I suspect that the ICs went bad again and blew a resistor or two. I used cheap Chinese ICs instead of the Sanyo ones and thing this is why. I'll be looking at it again and post solution.

Black out?!?!?

I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.
