I've changed alot of optic blocks on this model in the the last month. I received a letter from Sony yesterday and your Model number is included in additional service warranty through the end of September of this year. The address for the Sony site for this set is: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=127&mdl=KDF55XS955 Hope this helps.

Lets bombard Hitachi with the pink cloud issue and get them to replace the TV or Fix it. I've got the same issue and the repair technician told me to fight for it. He wouldn't even come out to look, he knew right away what the problem was. The Red and Green engines were shot and said to scrap the TV. I told him that I just bought the unit in 2004 for 5000.00 and he said I'll have to fight for it.

There is a possibility that the symptoms that you described is covered under an additional warranty, even if your set has been out of warranty for years. Sony has a site that describes this repair at no cost to the consumer: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=127&mdl=KF50WE610 If this is not covered, then, the blue light panel is going out and that means it needs a light engine. Good Luck

You have a defective light engine and you do not have to be under warranty for Hitachi to replace this part. We just went through this and here's what you need to do. Call Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them that you have a defective light engine. They will act like they've never heard of this problem but they have. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once a tech comes out and confirms that it's the light engine, call Hitachi back and they will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitachi will cover the cost of the part (cost $1500).
Here is the deal, if you're under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. If you're not under warranty, all you pay is the install. Our install cost $400. Others on this site have paid $200. Do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for the light engine part...you do not. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it for free. Also, deal only with Hitachi customer realations number that I listed. Good Luck

Same problem here on my Hitachi 50v710 about 3 years old, getting yellow around the edges.
This is dissapointing to see the only suggested solution would cost over 1000$!!!
