It seems that your unit has some sort of  PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur. 

Remember there are lethal Voltages inside TV's, and generally these days don't contain any "User Serviceable parts" like in the "Old" days, instead Board Replacement is all that is generally done. 

You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

My name is Eugene McElroy. I have the exact problem and believe Hitachi knows that this is prevalent. I feel ripped off. My set only worked for 1 year. If you're having this problem please email me. Let's organize and make Hitachi admit their problem. Email hiautofair@netzero.net

Hitachi tv turns on then gets bad picture than turns off blue light blinking


The name of the part is probably "buffer board" and there are two in your TV - upper buffer and lower buffer, also called SDR-U and SDR-L boards.

Those are the two most common sources of problems in P50S601 along with the Y sustain board (SD board in hitachi and Panasonic terminology), which sometimes gets damaged by the failed buffer board.

In the buffer boards market there are all kinds of offerrings. There are old buffers for around $130 for the pair and there are new buffers in the range $160-$200 for the pair.

In my opinion if the difference is barely $30-$40 one is better off going for the brand new ones.

Here's a link to our title for them, you can sure find others if you start from it:

My hitachi p50s601 turns on for 1 second and then goes completely blank and the blue light flashes 3 times repeatedly.what do i do?


3 Blinks means one of the buffer boards is bad. The way to test it is to unhooking one SDR board at a time, and see if half of your screen comes on properly. If the SDR-D board is bad the bottom half of the screen won't come on when you remove the board. Send it out for repair (less expensive then buying a replacement board) or search for a refurbished board. If your non technical provide this info to a service tech and ask for an estimate. Cost will be moderate. Hope this helps you. Jon

Tv turns on for a few seconds then shuts off and the blue power light blinks.


Mine never turned on but the blue power light would blink.I disconnected the upper y buffer and got light on the bottom half of screen and the blinking stopped.I have the upper board on order and I think this will fix my problem.There is a blink code somewhere,just count how many blinks.Start pulling connectors from power supply and when it quits blinking you've found the one,could also be the power supply with bad cap.

Blue light blinks three times


very common issue for these sets! p50h401 and p50s601 are almost the same.

for more info on this set please check out http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/hitachi/38229-hitachi-p50h401-led-flashes-3-times.html
if will tell you how to trouble shoot this tv. these tv's are known for two caps in the power supply to go bad and they need replaced then you have to test the sdr buffer boards if they are bad you need replacement boards or you can send them off to be repaired.( Repairing the buffer boards is a lot less then replacing them ) the link for the repair guy is on the page. this guy also sells the repair on ebay but if you contact him directly i beleave the price is lower. just tell him you were send over by home theater shack.

Blue light blinking-


I would say you are lucky to get a pretty fair price, sounds like a convergence problem- if the tv is a projection wide screen. worth the investment Julio milleniumtvsvc@gmail.com
