Hitachi P42H401 - No Picture or Sound. Some Menus work.
Hitachi P42H401. I watched a movie fine on this TV the night before. The next morning, I turned it on and there was no picture or sound. The set receives power (indicator is blue) and I can pull up the main menu and the volume meter appears when adjusting volume. The Inputs Menu does not appear though.

Based on what you have tried if a buzz or loud static via the speakers you have something wrong in the audio output circuit of the set--problem here is that circuit may be part of the Main board that processes all signal---a look inside---following the speaker leads back would lead you to that board.
A simple thing to do to narrow it a little (you may have done this) is with sound all the way off put your ear to the internal speaker--hear anything at all like a deep hum?
Depending on age of set and cost of the board likely bad it may or may not be a do it yourself repair.
You should have an RCA cable connector with your DVD player (three wire connector color coded yellow, red, white). If you plug one end of that into your DVD player (out) and into the input #1 in the back of your TV that should be sufficient. Then just select from the input menu on your Tv to watch that input. You do this by the buttons on the lower left of the TV. One is marked "input/exit". Pressing that button should bring-up your input menu then use "menu/select" button to select input 1 and try playing the DVD...
I do have the owner and service manual if you need it just let me know...

Does the TV have a light sensor? If so, turn it off. The light sensor limits the backlights intensity at night or when it's dark in your room in order for better vieweing convenience.
If you are in a dark environment, it really pains your eyes when the view is too bright. Same works the other way around. If it's day, and light in your room. The light sensor will dimm the backlight for it isn't needed.
