Re: Hitachi TV 42hdt51

Might be the digital board, which on this unit you're in luck, easy to diagnose. The digital board has a group of led lights on it D302, D303, D304, D305, D306 if when you attempt to power up and of these begin flashing or changing colors it's likely digital board needs to be replaced...
If any of this sounds to foreign get a pro on this, you can mess this unit up in the blink of an eye...

Hitachi 2006 42HDS69 will not detect signal from dvd or xbox, how do I fix this?

Check the error codes on the digital board, which is visible through the grill in the back where the AC power entry is located. A trouble shooting guide, including the error codes, can be found in the service manual here:

In the case of my TV, I had to replace the main digital board. I was able to find one online for about $80 and replace it myself. Once you get the rear cover off the TV the digital board is easily accessible and took maybe 20 minutes to replace. Good luck!
