ITS GLYCOL AND TOXIC TO THE TOUCH---DEEP SIX THE SET AND GET IT OUT OF YOUR HOUSE-YOU WILL ABSORB IT BY TOUCH AND IT IS CONCENTRATED ENOUGH TO KILL SMALL CHILDREN OR PETS

Your mistake was opening the sealed area not meant to be opened, others have made the same mistake.

This is the reason (the glycol) why major landfills all over do not allow these sets to be dumped in the dump.

you went from bad to fatal and toxic waste cleanup.

Hey there, You'll have to contact the Hitachi local customer care and order a replacement. It won't be that much of a cost, maybe around $20 or so.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Check your owner's manual and see if there are instructions for setting the convergence. This lines up the different color guns so that you don't need your 3D glasses. If setting the convergence doesn't work, you may need new IC chips. Good luck!
