    So today my 2 1/2 yr old 50" Hitachi Plasma went black. It was on earlier and just went out, when it is turned on it shows a flash of a picture very briefly then goes black with the blue power light flashing three times repeatedly. Tried unplugging power for a few hours as well as unplugging the inputs. Cannot find any codes on the internet so far. Hoping someone has a magic solution otherwise I am guessing I am in the market for a new one :(

    While I have no idea, it sounds like it might be the power supply power capacitors. If so, it should not be an expensive fix, if you can find a service center that still does board level repairs (vs just replacing the whole power supply). Just a guess tho.

    That just sucks. Unless they guy is having trouble locating the parts, it should have been fixed ages ago. Even then you should have been kept up to date. If it is just a couple of caps or even the whole board, it takes longer to take the back off the set than it does to make the repair.
