Is the lamp light on? Probably just need to replace the lamp. very easy to do. just remove the cover with a screw, unscrew the old lamp, pull it out, put in the new one. easy. cost you about a hundred dollars for the lamp. buy the name brand one. the generic ones burn out quickly and don't save you much money when you buy them.

Re: hitachi 51g500 screen gone black
Yes worth repairing but not a crt problem. the crt's are powered by a high voltage transformer and sometimes it's caps that goes bad and in turn knocks out the crt's. but they are ok, it's in the high voltage line.

Is it connected to an antenna? Is it all channels? Can you play a DVD? Is the contrast too high? Can you access the onscreen controls? I have the 57" model and cannot figure anything else, currently -- the manual does give any suggestions.
No, this could mean a loose connection on crt board(red of course) Look also and check to see if lines going to board are connected correctly. If nothing, then there could be something trying to short itself out on crt board. look for burnt resistors and bad capacitors.
