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.

SOURCE: I heard a loud pop

Does anything come on the screen? Input display box? 
If no:
Sounds like it could be a blow capacitor. Cheap part, but need someone with a little electronic know how repair to fix it.

SOURCE: 55HT79 HITACHI BLUE POWER LIGHT BLINKS ON AND OFF.

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.

Good one (great description).

Have fun save $$$$

Wont come on at all no blue light


If there is no blue light and no sound, then power is not making it into the unit. Is there a red light when it is plugged in? Many of these plasmas have a primary power switch located underneath or on the back. Make sure that is turned on. If you receive power, there should be an indicator light showing power is present. If it is just dead, as if unplugged, then either the main switch is off or failed, or the power supply may need service.

Hitachi Plasma 55HDT79 volume gets louder


It's obviously beyond your expertise to repair it yourself. And it's not the sort of problem that can be diagnosed over the internet.
Find a trustworthy repair shop and take it there.

Hitachi 55HDT79 plasma television cycles on and off continuously. The blue led alternates between solid and blinking. The television seems to be in a continuous re-boot mode and does not stay on long...


i have a hitachi 55hdt79 that i purchased brand new some years ago and after only 1 year of use my girlfriend with her infinite wisdom threw something at me and as I dodged it the item hit and cracked the screen on the TV! I took it off the wall and boxed it up and has been sitting in my basement ever since. It still powers up and you can hear sound from it but for obvious reasons there is now image. If someone wants to make me an offer for it so they can use the parts to fix their own tv please let me know. email nutn2prv2u@yahoo.com it is located in Brooklyn NY 11223. you pay for shipping or I prefer you come pick it up. no reasonable offer refused.

Have a Hitachi 55hdt79...no pictures only sounds.


It might be the power supply, check the main power supply. Audio power supply is seperate to main power supply, thats why you have a sound.
