Question about Hitachi 55HDS69 55 in. Plasma Television
Figure out my problem, needed a new APCB Scan Board, part was only like $150 but with labor and pickup/delivery cost me over $500, hitachi was no help to either myself or the repair shop, apparrently their tech support isnt what is used to be. guess im lucky at just $500.

Same problem and we replaced the large 2 boards and power supply with no luck. Did not trial-and-error on the small driver boards around the edge. Tech said whole plasma panel was shot and cost $3000. I had the extended warranty on this 14 month old TV so they are buying it back from me. At most this TV has 20 hrs on it. I'm picking up a 52" LCD 1080p tomorrow.
Actually they left it at my house for me to dispose of so I may be parting it out after I check one last time for a loose connection. I'll even let you trial and error on parts provided you pick up the shipping costs. I saw the glass was over $600 so I'd probably look at half price. I'm in Ohio.

If you change the large boards (X-SUS and Y-SUS), and the drive scans are OK, maybe you need change the LOGIC PWB.

I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.
