Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the Hitachi TV.
And to avoid asking you to do something you've already tried, can you please tell me what / any and all troubleshooting / specific steps you've already attempted other than / to address the above.

Appreciate the additional information; a Hitachi 42HDT52.

Do any of the LED indicator lights blink or goes off when "...before the picyure comes on the tv gos off..."

And as this would almost always be an internal hardware issue, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?

Perhaps more importantly, would you be comfortable working on the inside circuitry? ...LIVE?
