Wont come on at all no blue light

If there is no blue light and no sound, then power is not making it into the unit. Is there a red light when it is plugged in? Many of these plasmas have a primary power switch located underneath or on the back. Make sure that is turned on. If you receive power, there should be an indicator light showing power is present. If it is just dead, as if unplugged, then either the main switch is off or failed, or the power supply may need service.

Hitachi tv turns on then gets bad picture than turns off blue light blinking

The name of the part is probably "buffer board" and there are two in your TV - upper buffer and lower buffer, also called SDR-U and SDR-L boards.

Those are the two most common sources of problems in P50S601 along with the Y sustain board (SD board in hitachi and Panasonic terminology), which sometimes gets damaged by the failed buffer board.

In the buffer boards market there are all kinds of offerrings. There are old buffers for around $130 for the pair and there are new buffers in the range $160-$200 for the pair.

In my opinion if the difference is barely $30-$40 one is better off going for the brand new ones.

Here's a link to our title for them, you can sure find others if you start from it:

Hope this helps!

Blue light blinking-

I would say you are lucky to get a pretty fair price, sounds like a convergence problem- if the tv is a projection wide screen. worth the investment Julio [email protected]
