    I am having the same problem, except it has been flickering on and off for a couple weeks. I thought it was my cable provider, because it literally would be ok for a couple days and then flicker a little bit, but then yesterday out of no were it went blank. i can still hear sound through my suround sound.

    Same problem here... just happened. I checked the fuses and they seem to be fine. How did you get it fixed?

I had the exact same problem.

Since my TV was out of warranty by about 6 months, I called Hitachi at 1-800-hitachi. Their hours are:
10-1 Saturday 
9:30-6 weekdays

The person who authorized Hitachi paying for my parts was Keith, but I called back and spoke with an equally helpful person afterward. I was impressed with the customer service. I told them that I had chosen Hitachi over other brands because I believed in the product, but I was frustrated with my expensive plasma failing so soon out of warranty. I also shared with them that I was seeing several other people on this forum experiencing the same problem. They agreed to pay for parts and I would pay for labor.

My local repair shop charged me $199.95 total for labor, which wasn't too bad. It took longer than I had hoped to get the part, over a week, and a couple more days to do the repairs, so that was a little frustrating. The TV is working great now, and I am happy with the outcome (I'd be happier if it hadn't failed at all, but overall I thought the handling was fair).

Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

Take care,

I think is your X-SUS PWB and Y-SUS PWB.
Call to Hitachi service to ask for these parts.

Big black square in middle of screen picture top to bottom about 36 " wide good audio and picture 6" on right and left side displaying.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Black out?!?!?

I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.
