The symptom you describe seems not uncommon with quite a few Hitachi models; and also one or two other brands as well.

A general trawl via google seems to point to a possible problem with the power supply; possibly a duff/faulty capacitor...

One poster on a yahoo site discovered (in his Hitachi) that it was a fuse issue. Apparently there seems to be more than one onboard...? Don't quite follow his discovery as no-longer fixing this kind of kit...; and so no-longer au-faitwith current technologies (at least the electronics inside the box etc...).

If you're not into serious fault finding, and/or not into proper soldering techniques (almost a lost skill/art for electronics these days...) you may have to get a "qualified" techie to have look-see. By "qualified" I mean someone who does know his way around modern tv etc., and if possible is familiar with the Hitachi range (and is able to solder properly too).

Longshot... Leave the set off for 24hrs - mains power fully removed. Can't hurt to try it as occasionally power up faults can resolve themselves once allowed to cool down fully; and onboard capacitors have discharged themselves fully too. But it s "very looong"shot...
