Unhappy No Power! - Hitachi 42PD9700U

I have a Hitachi 42PD9700U plasma tv which will NOT power on!!. No sign of life although power is coming through the end of the cable. This also happened approximately 4 months ago and then suddenly started working again after several attempts to turn on. It then worked perfectly for several months

It was then moved and not used for approximately 1 month. The same problem has reappeared, and will now not come on - turn power on at the wall and there is no sign of lift. Using the remote and/or buttons on the tv.

I would be grateful for any help please

Were you wanting to try to fix it yourself?

The power supply is what I would suspect as the bad part. Cost around $150 . The tv is broken ,so taking it apart to see if you wanted to attempt to repair it is not going to hurt anything.

True - I work a lot with computer desktops so stripping the tv, etc is not a issue. But have you any instructions on how to replace this item or if I could obtain a service manual that would show me how to do this?. As I have never been inside a tv before.

You can search the web. There are sites that have service manuals available. Once you take the back off look for where the power goes into the power supply and look for blown fuses. It could be as simple as replacing a fuse.
