I have a Hitachi 42" plasma TV model 42HDT55. The Dish TV service

Customer Question

I have a Hitachi 42" plasma TV model 42HDT55. The Dish TV service went out. While following instructions over the phone on checking this and that and making sure all connections were tight, I noticed the little light on the front of the TV is blinking yellow. Now I can't turn the TV on or off, it just keeps blinking yellow. I tried both the dish remote and the TV remote--nothing!

Thanks for requesting me .
I will be with you shortly but in the mean time try this ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.
If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.
let me know how that goes.
