Question about Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma Television
My Hitachi 42HDS69 tv wont turn on. The light on the bottom right hand corner will stay red, wont turn "blue". We've unplugged the TV and waited minutes even hours and managed to get it working again but not this time, changed batteries on the remote and still wont turn on. Already tried the power button on the side control panel but nothing seems to happen. Is this the end of my tv?? Had it for only 3.5 years.

I have the same question /problem. I recently ordered a cable that has the a computer monitor connection on one end and the "s-video"connection on the other end. This might work. I will post a new reply when I get the cable sometime between 8/4-8/7; if it works I will post a new message

The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Seems like a problem with the main audio/video board. Does the screen come on and stay lit? Please provide this info so that I can confirm the problem and offer you an appropriate solution.
