Question about Hitachi 42HDT51 42 in. Plasma SLC1551AW
The symptom has no issue on the input (channel reception) because the problem is internal and caused by leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor in the power supply section of your tv. It will produced an unregulated supply which will disable the unit because the supply will not go into complete cycle. It will make itself stable within a warm-up (a few minute) but the symptom will get worst. Leaky capacitor sometimes has a bulged/dome at the top and easy to recognize even without using the capacitor checker but the problem is the dried capacitor which has no physical indication of fault. It is better to have a capacitor checker/tester if you decided to fix it yourself. Once you've replaced the said parts you're unit will back to normal again. If you can't do the job yourself I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
