ok got a new one for you guys. i bought my hitachi in dec. 06 and except for football season it rarely gets used. last month i was watching a show and heard a loud "click" and the picture went black and then came right back up. after about 5 minutes it happened again, then in 2 minutes, then 45 seconds. all this time the sound never goes out, just the picture for about a second and always accompanied by the click. to me it sounds like a very loud relay. anytime i turn on the tv this pattern repeats. i checked my wall plug and no issues there. any suggestions? i called hitachi and found out the manufacturers warr. is one year, not two like i thought. is there anything i could check and replace myself? I am a service technician very familiar with electronic diagnostics, just not in this field. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
