Listen carefully to the sound of the exhaust fan. If you don't hear it it could be that the tv's fail safe shutdown is being tripped. Your tv is overheating.

I just replaced the lamp in my Hitachi 50vf820 tv and it comes on for a second then cuts out and blinks red temp light.

Make sure all the fans are working correctly. If the problem persists then it might be the ballast, the power supply or a bad temp sensor.

HDMI from laptop to DVI plug on Hitachi big screen TV

Have you cycled thru the inputs on the TV? Should display under the DVI input setting. Use input/source button on your remote to cycle thru inputs.

Good day, 1gary;

Hitachi has LED’s, green ‘lights’ and a red light to determine what circuit may be the problem; after removing the back of TV, bottom only, plug TV back in and observe which LED’s come on …..BUT most important which LED’s don’t come on; locate and note number, EG; DP37 and etc.

Good luck, big IRISH. Ps let me know.
