I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.

TV blue light comes on, then the red light blinks two times, on the 3rd blink, it goes into rapid blinking. I replaced the lamp and it worked for a week, but then the same issue. I put the old lamp back...

some units require a lamp counter reset.the ballast usually starts at extreme output and at certain hour interval the ballast would start to decrease voltage as the bulb reset on some models can be reset using the remote

Tv lights blink, tv not turning on

HI, the fly back transformer has failed in your unit. this will occur if the dust level is high inside the set. the dust will settle on the cooper windings and, create an arch that will short out the entire power sector of this unit.

The fly back is usually the first to take the hit. replacing this will fix this issue.
