    I have the same problem. I tried for the last ten days to contact hitachi. I finally got someone on the phone tonight. I will give his name. DONALD employee # 25956. He told me I was on my own. My monitor is only 15 months old. $1,800 for a set that gives you 15 months is ****. He said hitachi will not stand behind its product 3 months past its year. Yes, its the same P50H401. I think we should start a web to see just how many of this model is crapping out. It is the powerboard and many offmarket companies sell used or new boards to fix the problem. Just one thing. If powerboard didn't **** out in time, you could have more problems. Pot luck if ya buy an after market powerboard. So, for me. I'm buying an after market powerboard $20 board $10 shipping and I will take my chances. If I lose, I will send it out to my closest service man.

    I have the SAME problem. This TV is only 11 months old in my house!!! I am beyond angry. They said I needed a "software upgrade" and is mailing it to me. All of my information was taken by the rep on the phone. I paid 1600.00 for this huge piece of "landfill-er". I am thinking they have an obligation to either fix the problem, or replace this television. Any changes in your situations to the other posters?? atlrucker@yahoo.com. Let me know. Paul

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

I can hear sound but no picture I have a Hitachi 55 inch


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

I have a HL67A750 Samsung no picture no sound blue light luminated on front 3 LEDs flashing


Those 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.
