TV Not turning on , but blue power light is on


look in the back, see if the lamp is actually lit. If it is probably not a tv problem. If you can pull up the menu then you probably are on the wrong input. Are the fans running when you turn it on? IF fans are running might be lamp, if nothing is seen through the back.

TV would not turn on.


I believe you need to replace the lamp. I have a 50VF820 that is doing the same thing.

Lamp light


Check the lamp switch that is located inside the door. Place the lamp in, and stick a flathead screwdriver in the slot (just make sure it moves) hold it there, and turn on the Tv. If that doesn't work check the new lamp, is it a generic lamp, if so they dont always work. If you still have your old orig lamp, take the old lamp out of that housing, and out the new lamp in the old housing. This should fix the problem.

TV WONT TURN ON. BLUE LIGHT GOES ON THEN THE TWO RED LIGHTS BLINK IT HAD BEEN WORKING THEN ONE DAY IT JUST WONT TURN ON.


I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.
