I opened the back of the TV and sure enough, the micro switch that the lamp ,when in place, was supposed to touch the blue connector to make the connection - they were not touching so I used some sticky tape to build it up to see if it solved the problem and it did !

Re: Replacement Lamp Hitachi 50V500
It must be a red light flashing as the 50V500 has no green lights on it. Make sure that when you place the lamp cover back on that it is activting the micro switch behind it. Otherwise the set will assume the door is open and won't ignite the lamp. Otherwise the ballast could be the issue.

Hi, Lamp light ON means TV needs new lamp as existing lamp is either broken or dead. Replace lamp in TV, replacement procedure would be written in user manual. Let me know if you have additional question. Thanks.
Sounds like a 50v500 with a bad light engine, first check the lamp , pull the front cover off remove the lamp door screw , two screws hold the lamp in, see if the lamp is popped. if its good, the light engine is bad cost about $500-$800
hope this helps
You have one of the following issues.Be sure to check that the lamp door is properly attached. This can cause the the lamp light to go on.
1. Bad thermal sensor for the lamp.
2. Bad ballast.
3. bad supply voltage from power supply.
I have one of these units, if the light is blinking and no picture as you have stated then you will need to replace the bulb in the unit. it is contained in the front of the unit behind the front panel on the right, you would remove the front panel after unplugging the unit, remove the single screw and pull out the box. replace it and then reverse the proces. the bulbs can be obtained for about $130.00 to $200.00 depending on where you get it from. Shop around.
