I can't help you fix it, but do want to share that we had a similar problem with our Hitachi plasma within 3 mos. of buying it. It was going to take 6 months to get the part needed to fix the problem. After much effort, we finally persuaded Hitachi to replace the set (that took over 3 mos). We have not had any problems since and really love the set.

Does anything come on the screen? Input display box?
Sounds like it could be a blow capacitor. Cheap part, but need someone with a little electronic know how repair to fix it.

I can't help you because after 26 months of ownership mine is doing the same thing (started on 7-12-09). Judging by the number of people with the same complaint I believe Hitachi knows that they have bad boards but refuses to replace them for customers unless they are within warranty. It also explains why the merchant that sold it to me in 2007 stopped offering Hitachi in 2008.
I'm disgusted because I'm anticipating a $300-$500 repair bill simply because Hitachi's design did not provide an external way of resetting it. Impossible to get to the menu to do a reset within 12 seconds before it starts the powering on booting cycle again.
Adding salt to the injury, mine is wall mounted and repair people will only work on it if it is readily accessilble when they walk in the door or if it is brought to the shop. Know what a 55" plasma TV weighs? Too much.
