Question about Hitachi 43FDX01B TV
Every once-in-a-while my TV will shut off and immediately the red power light will flash on and off continuously and not come back on until I turn off the TV for a while. I may leave it turned off for 15 minutes and get back to viewing or it may take as long as 1, 5, or 10 hours before I can turn it on again. Sometimes placing a fan to cool everything down, it will become operable. The most I've had to wait was 1 day. The least I have had to wait was 10 minutes. It seems that the sooner I place the fan for cooling, the sooner it becomes normal. I suspect the DVR cable box may be sending an illogical message to the TV to turn off as if sending a sleep message to the TV. I say this because it only happens when the DVR modem gets hot. That is why I use the fan. If I keep the fan running continuously, the problem rarely happens. However, my fan burnt out. Does anyone have a suggestion or a way to look at the problem differently?
The Superbowl will be coming up soon and I'd like to clear this up before then. Thanks, Jim
