am in hopes that you could possibly answer a technical question for me.
When I turn the set on from stand by the blue light on the front of the
television will blink on and off eight times, before sending a picture to
the screen.. Although everything functions correctly , in picture quality
feel that this blinking is an indication of a problem or future issue that
should be addressed. Have downloaded the technical datasheet from
hitachi_42hdx99_42hdt79_42hds69_chassis_dw2-u however; Absence
of any data regarding the ‘error blink codes’

Rather impressed with the longevity of this plasma television. The only
components I have needed to replace have been a 100 volt 3300 uF
capacitor. Also the original cooling fans still function with out issue.
Outstanding track record for a 12 year old plasma tv.

May have figured it out.. Unplugged the TV, and let it sit for a bit. Then plugged it in and turned it on.. Would come right up with the blue light and no blinking.. so thought I would look threw the menu options and found: Menu - Setup - Set quick start options (Select on to have the TV tune channels quickly at 1st turn on) and now there is no 8 blinks, TV will turn on immediately. Everything works again. Yeah.. :)
