We study dichotomous behavior of solutions to a non-autonomous linear difference equation in a Hilbert space. The evolution operator of this equation is not continuously invertible and the corresponding unstable subspace is of infinite dimension in general. We formulate a condition ensuring the dichotomy in terms of a sequence of indefinite metrics in the Hilbert space. We also construct an example of a difference equation in which dichotomous behavior of solutions is not compatible with the signature of the indefinite metric.
