Hitachi 42HDT20 Blinking orange light

I have had this plasma for about 5 years with no problems. All of a sudden the standby light is flashing orange which the manual states the monitor is on but is receiving no signal from the AVC(audio/video control center). This unit seems unaffected (light will change from red to green when turned on). I unplugged all of the cables waited a few minutes and then reattached. The blinking stopped and the standby was red. I turned on the tv and a show popped up on the screen for about 20 seconds. The set turned off and the orange light blinking resumed. Does anyone have any suggestions?

First, try the unplug it, wait a few minutes, plug it in trick, several times. If that doesn't work try pressing the power button and slap the back left side of the set several times. Sometimes, this will shock the ballast and/or lamp into working.

Try checking the wires as well if its pinch or not and try to take out all cables from other devices from the back

I have had some issues with high ESR readings in the capacitors in the scaler circuits in those units. Do you have an ESR meter to check the caps in circuit?

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I have a hitachi 50 "plasma that was given to me


First do you see a light indicating that the TV has power? There are two power buttons on the TV (the main power and the regular power button). The red standby light will light up when the main power switch is on. This indicator is just to the left of the remote I/R sensor. You can find the main switch on the bottom front of the tv (it is under the tv forward of the stand). Turn on the Main power if it is not on. Then try the power button on the control panel of the TV again.

Does the standby light change color or blink? (Red is standby, orange is power savings (no signal), blue is on.) If the main switch is on and the standby light doesn't come on, the TV has a problem at the power supply. Try unplugging the unit for a bit (at least 30 seconds) and then plugging it back in. This will reset the internal circuitry. If you see a blinking light, then the TV is reporting a self-test failure. I do not know the codes for this model Hitachi Plasma TV.

The manual for the Hitachi P50H401 TV is available from Retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-P50H401-TVs-manual/id/1233ci869/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the pdf.

I'm assuming you don't have one of the special versions that were intended for large audiences that were only controlled by remote (no control keys on the front of the TV). Remotes.com has the original remote or a substitute remote if you need it. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=13104063628240&smodel=P50H401&brand_pn=HITACHI_P50H401 .

I hope this helps.

Screen does not switch on, mode light flashes orange


Need to remove the Input module circuit box from the bottom of the center and wait for few minutes before putting it back.

This will reset the system from this persistant power off problem.

Best way to prevent it from happening again is to manually switch of the power switch before doing any powering off and on. Most commonly happens during a power failure and power coming back on with the switch in the on position.
