Re: No main picture, PIP ok
There is a repair kit, for the PIP module, as thats where your problem lies. if you know how to solder on and off surface mounted capacitors, its a breeze to do, but if you dont, you will most likly put to much heat on the board and the landings and printed circuit traces will come up, so if you decide to do this yourselfs, please be carefull. The kit is available at this link.http://www.mcminone.com/search.asp?keyword=Hitachi+PIP&btnSubmit.x=10&btnSubmit.y=8 If you do not feel comfortable do this, maybe you know someone whos an electronic hobbiest and can replace these for you .. Good Luck

PIP or picture in picture works in two ways with the original remote--new sets with this actually have two tuners in them, one for main picture and one for PIP picture, you can change channels in both, swap the PIP to the main picture or even have both side by side.
Sure its got the PIP? what is brand and model number ?
What I hear you saying is that your main television tuner shows lines only while the PIP is functioning properly. The PIP works by using a separate tuner from the main tuner of your television (like a vcr tuner). Since the PIP works then it appears that your main tv tuner is not working anymore. It will probably have to be replaced. I recommend looking at our online technician list for a professional near you.
You will need to check the inputs on the television. You more than likely have a bad video in signal. This can be a bad cable or a loose connection either at the input of your television or at the output from your receiver, (cable or satellite). First, try wiggling the cable and then try replacing it. This should fix the problem. If not, your signal may be routed through a stereo or other switching device?
