    I have the same problem. I have found that when you power off the TV at night use front power button, not remote, then power off power strip, unplug power strip. The next morning plug in the power strip, power on power strip, then press the power button on front of TV it will stay on. I think the TV needs the big surg of power it gets when you turn the strip on. I have found if we use the remote it will not stay on, yes we have a new remote. I have also found that unpluging the tv from the strip then pluging it back in does not do the same as having it plugged in then turning the strip on. The repair man said they do not make the part we need for our TV and would cost over 600 and six weeks to get ours rebuilt. Did not tell us which part.

If it is only a few days over the warranty call immedieatly, if it is much over that then these newer Hitachis are in my opinion not worth repair, and I mean the newer under $1000 units the parts are near the origianl cost sometimes.

Check IC601, C603 for leakage, I601 and vertical pulse detector QN05

for poor convergence check RK42 for open circuit.

In this case you will need to replace the convergence STK ICs to restore the convergence. The resistors can be measure with an ohmeter to check their values.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello palmer420,

I have that schematic, actually the 43UDX10B which has the same chassis DP-15 and DP-15E. I'll send it to you.

Thank you,

SOURCE: TV PIcture and Sound Shut Down

it would appear its shutting down in a protect mode
its possible its a convergence circuit problem or something on the deflection bd
but it most likley will require some assistance from a tech that is used to working on this type of set
if you noticed when it does come on that the colors are all off line then suspect convergence circuit trouble the the green leds tell you what source is still alive there is a chart in the cabinet that will correspond with each source voltage that can lead you to tracking it down if you know what to look for and have the tools to do so

Do you take the back panel off to replace the bulb

No, you take the front panel off and you will see a small access panel. There is your lamp.

the more the tv remains on the picture gets out of focus mainly in the midle of screen. Sure sounds like tv needs some light engine repair or replacement.

The tv turns on but no picture.

Mine did the same but no picture, just sound every few seconds for 1-2 seconds. I unplugged from the wall for 10 seconds and plugged back in, works fine now.
