Question about Televison & Video
Have you tried turning on your TV using both the remote and the power button on the set?
If it's a problem with the remote, it could be dead batteries, a blocked sensor or the remote is no longer programmed correctly. Try replacing the batteries and see if that solves the problem.
If the remote is accidentally reset or sits with dead batteries for a while, you may need to reprogram the remote with the proper codes. Check your owner's manual for the codes and directions on reprogramming it. For more help with your remote, check out Remote not working for possible causes and solutions.
If the problem is with your TV and not the remote, there are a number of possible causes from loose cable connections to dust build up to a backlight lamp that has failed. For a simple troubleshooting checklist, see TV picture problems and learn about simple fixes for the most common problems. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: TV WONT TURN ON
I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.

It could be some hardware failure. But lets be optimistic. Try to reset your TV-set to the manufacturers default state. Not sure about the exact procedure but it must be fownd in the "menue", somewhere under "Settings" or "Channel search"!
