Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Lamp burned out. Replaced. Like others, put on lamp cover - over and over - still blinking red light and no picture. Any solutions???
I'll tell you what I tran into and how it got resolved...
I experienced the same problem , with the blinking light...
Purchased a replacement lamp..
It didn't work(After market Universal supposably)..
Well..Come to find out.The Replacement lamp's housing looks similar, but the connecters that come out the back of the housing weren't quite long enough to trigger the microbe that activates the lamp in the Television.
Luckily I had the original lamp and it's housing that came with the television..
Took the bulb out of the new replacement lamp
Placed it in the original housing , and BINGO..It worked and is still working...

I found a solution to some of these problems. I too have a Hitachi 50V715 which started to become dim. I changed out the lamp(using the same enclosure ), installed it and the cover, only to find out the TV clicked once and clicked twice only to turn off leaving "lamp" light flashing. Getting frustrated I installed the old lamp only to find out it still would not turn on. I then knew it was an installation problem. Looking inside the housing of the TV ,in the upper right hand corner there is a small metal tap I noticed that pushes a blue"dip" switch. The metal tab was bent. I straightened out the tab .Also I took a small piece of scotch tape and used it to hold up the tab in an upright position. If you look at the back of your lamp enclosure you'll notice a plastic tab portruding in the upper right corner. This must push the metal tab which engages the blue switch behind it. Installed the enclosure and it "worked like a charm" ! I major problem was the tab was curved and just needed staightening. Hope this helps somebody else.

Ours was still under warranty when that happened and we had a tech come out who installed a larger fan from the original. We haven't had the problem since.
