Question about Hitachi 50V720 Television
We bought one that was a return a little over one year ago. We have no book for it so I have no idea what is wrong with it. When I try to turn it on the two lights next to the power light are flashing red. One says temp the other lamp. The screen is black, no picture at all. Does this mean I need a new bulb? I know NOTHING about tv's. Does anyone know where I can download a manual for this model tv? I am so lost. Thank you so much in advance to anyone who can help me out. Cindy
I have the same model and had the same problem after replacing the lamp. Turns out if the cover plate is not put back on properly, tv will not power on and lamp ligth comes on. To solve the problem all I had to do is tighten the cover plate screw. Hope this helps.

I am not offering a suggestion but I wanted to warn everyone that they should try to replace these lamps themselves. We have a 5 year comp. warranty from GE on our 52in Hitachi we bought in October 2005. It is a wonderful TV. Not even a year after we bought it, we had to have the lamp replaced. Electrosound of Cincinnati replaced it. Just today we had another one replaced by the same company because the lamp went out after barely two years. This time Electrosound charged us $433. for the lamp, for their trip to our house and $139 labor. The man was here for about 20 minutes. Pretty expensive!! We could have bought a second TV for what we paid to get the lamp replaced. N.Whitaker

Hi,no reset, Just make sure the Box (Lamp Enclosure) is pushed in firmly on both sides, left and right. Left side to hit the power connection and Right side to hit the little relay switch, Must be flush against that back side.
it happened to me and I was kicking myself in the ***, a entire weekend went by with a brand new lamp sitting in the enclosure but not completely set in correctly with a flashing red light.
Also get the outside lamp cover in just right where it touches the sensor and sits flush. That's what helped for me.
