Have you tried resetting it with the main power button underneath the front panel? Is the light on the front coming on at all? Most likely there is an internal problem with the tv and it will require repair. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

    Either your "power supply" or another board is bad. I would recommend having it serviced.
    You can locate the nearest service center at the link above. Then I would require about an estimate for repairs. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
    thank you,

Hitachi P42H401 turns on then shuts off seconds later

its most likely the common hitachi fault....its a little resistor that burns out, it happened mainly on the old crt tv's. any tv repair shop should be able to sort it for you.

Remove base from television

Remove 2 screws on the back bottom by the stand.

Remove 4 screws, two on each side about 3/4 of the way toward each edge.

Pull TV up to remove from stand. Put plate and 2 screws back.

Can see this if you download the manual from the hitachi site. Just do a search for the model no. on their site's search engine.

Hitachi P42H401

had a sanyo that quit after 3 months. Garbage anyhow... Have had the hitachi since may 07 and it is on most of the time. No problems. as for parts, you are dealing with china these days. And now that america no longer has a viable industrial complex,(and quite possibly a second world nation) we are at the mercy of foreign manufacturers who produce substandard parts, and deliver when they see fit. Way to go america.
