Been a while since I saw one of these sets--part of a class action lawsuit==if I remember lamp is behind a door that is clearly removed from outside of set--check or google here the model number with lamp location and You Tube has video instructions for changing the lamp itself.

SOURCE: Lamp Replacement Problems for Hitachi 50V500A

I'll tell you what I tran into and how it got resolved...
I experienced the same problem , with the blinking light...
Purchased a replacement lamp..
It didn't work(After market Universal supposably)..
Well..Come to find out.The Replacement lamp's housing looks similar, but the connecters that come out the back of the housing weren't quite long enough to trigger the microbe that activates the lamp in the Television.
Luckily I had the original lamp and it's housing that came with the television..
Took the bulb out of the new replacement lamp
Placed it in the original housing , and BINGO..It worked and is still working...

Hitachi 50v500a: Lamp blew, oredered a replacement. Just installed it, and I still get the "lamp" light on and it wont power up.


Remove lamp and look to see the socket the lamp plugs into did not get bent out of position---just check to see if it went in right and after that you put the door back(set will of course not operate if door or cover removed).

If we assume New lamp good and installed correctly the next possible issue is the Ballast which powers the lamp--Not easy on this set to check voltages---should have a plug with over 200-300 volts from power supply going to--the two wire plug from the lamp goes directly to it.

Where is the lamp located on my 50v710 Hitachi TV


The lamp is located behind the lower removable speaker grill on the front of the TV. There will be a lamp door then the lamp is up inside the TV behind the lamp door. Make sure the lamp door is back in place before turning on the TV after replacing the lamp as the set will not work without it installed.

Cant locate the lamp in my hitachi 50v500a


your lamp is in the lower left hand corner, You must first remove the plastic front cover. You will see a door with screws on the lower left, remove the screws and the lamp will come out easily. When replacing it wear latex gloves and avoid touching the lamp as this will shorten the life of the lamp.
