My Hitachi is not even two years old and the other day I was watching tv as normal, when all of a sudden i lost picture and sound. I can turn the TV on, but all that happens is the power light turns blue, blinks three times as usual (when the picture is usually loading), and then nothing happens. The screen remains blank, there is no sound, and about every 10 seconds or so the blue light blinks three times again. It is a repetative cycle, and it is driving me crazy. Is there anybody that has an idea of what might have caused this problem, or any potential solutions?
Re: No picture or sound, just blinking power light
Hi...I am sorry to say that I had this exact problem. It ended up being the upper and lower panel drives. I contacted Hitachi and even though my unit was out of warranty, they agree to pay for parts. I paid for labor myself, and it cost me $199.95.
Good luck with it...let me know how it turns out for you.

Normally on the Panasonic tv this will call for a service call. The key to getting it repaired correctly is to check for a certified Samsung repair shop because most of the parts come from Samsung. Now if you want to do your own research call to 800 number for Panasonic Tv see if there are any problems with that model that the manufacturer has extended but does not post. I had one repaired that the red light on also so I understand and it went out approximately 4 3/4 years. If your in the Atlanta area use Norman electronics they have repaired hundreds on tvs for me due to my work.
It sounds that lamp in TV is weak and not throwing enough light to bright the screen for good image. How old is this TV and did you replaced its Lamp recently? If lamp has not been replaced yet or in last 2-3 years, replace it.
Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.
