Lamps have a limited life. They useually last 1000 hours or so. If the TV is on from 07:00 until say 23:00 every day, that equates to 60 days.
There is no such lamp as a "One time replacement lamp" as they do not last for ever.
The average life of a lamp is just about 6 months.
If the picture is cloudy is probably needs the optice cleaning. It is very fiddly and damage can occur easily so get an authorised Hitachi repair service department to clean it for you. It should be carried out in your home and will take less than an hour. If anything gets broken, it is not your problem if they are heavy handed.

Hope that helps.

Are you with BT? Do you have call minder? If you do then it signifies that you have voice mail. Clear the messages and the beeping should go away ??

It is going to be one of two basic issues:

1. There is a poor connection somewhere in the set--either with a plug or cable or on one of the boards.

2. There is a board that is beginning to fail causing this.

Either would require a shop and may or may not be worth the cause.

Having seen hundreds of these sets all are more prone to flaky problems than the older sets and average life span is 3-5 years.

Shop I work for 80% of them are 2 years old or less.

If problem began shortly after set was moved or relocated I would lean towards a bad connection somewhere.

My sanyo tv screen keeps disappearing with green lines on thris


Green retrace lines could me two things, the green gun in the CRT is shorting out and that is the picture tube, and it is not worth fixing. Another thing that it could be is a bad neck board and the green driver transistor is shorting, but that would be green all the time, I would say it is the picture tube, and buy a new TV.

Common problem, it can be a ground wire (not any ive seen) the float assy can be bought through your local gm dealer instead of buying the whole pump assy.
