Hitachi Plasma TV Model PD32-A3000/AVC-A3000

When I turn the TV on (from standby) the screen's green light is on and it goes from black to pale blue but the AVC green light doesn't light up (from standby red light) and there is no picture, but there is sound.
This has happened a couple of times before and it has been OK after I have left it turned off for a couple of hours but this time I can't get the picture - even after leaving it powered off overnight.
I have checked all cables etc and they are all OK - do you have any idea on why this is happening and how to fix it?

I purchased this in August 2003

    Where should I check for the blown fuse, the back of the screen or in the AVC box?

    Also, why would it have corrected itself previously but hasn't this time?

Sounds like your power supply capacitors have failed. Google for Z1234TV and see if you can locate a power supply capacitor repair kit for your model.

Turns on for 30 sec then goes bright blue and goes back into standby. turn back on it does it agian

This is blue CRT problem in tv as it is rear projection tv that has three CRTs red-green-blue inside to project color picture on front screen.
Blue CRT (tube) will be replaced to fix the issue and it is job of Pro because lots of adjustments are required after replacement of tube.
Local tv repair shop will help you for that.

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?

It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.

Display powers of with power up of AVC

This is the problem with my LC-37HV4U. I plug in the AVC and the tv/monitor and I get both red power lights (not blinking) but no green lights, sound, or picture. I mean the tv screen stays black! It seems like their is no communication between the AVC and the monitor. I thought at least the screen would light up when the power light came on and being it has it's own power source. This tv is driving me nuts!! Can anyone please help?? Thank you.
