Hitachi 50" Ultravision too much yellow, not much blue

Picture has yellow even where white should be. The blue really doesn't come through at all. Lots of red,green, and yellow. I replaced the lamp and it didn't fix the problem.

    on picture color, if a person's shirt is white it shows up yellow. The yellow makes all the blues look green.

    I also have the same problem. There is a yellow tint to the picture. I have the model 50V500A. For example when I watch a game of hockey the ice is yellow instead of white. Basically anything that should be white is yellow. Also does not display the colour blue at all.

    Same problem as others. We got a new bulb and now a small portion of the screen has true whites. (only about 1/6th of screen). Still the color is horrible; we are very disappointed with Hitachi.

    I also have three yellow lines running across the screen. I've had my 50V500 since they first came out. Is there a fix?

First of all sorry for delay.
can you provide a image of yello shadow.I believe it seems to be technically say "ghost image"
If it is ghost image we can try by entering SERVICE Menu and adjust RGB level of the light engine.

Good luck

I have an issue with a tv It is a Hitachi Ultravision Directors Series model #55HDV99. It has picture and sound, but the color is not correct. The reds and blues are missing.

Check the connection between your cable box and tv.
You should have five rca cables connected. Red, yellow, and blue. the other red and white is for audio.

Regardless of them passing the eye test. Push on each end to make sure contact.
If that doesn't do it you may have a bad crt, but you are missing red and blue that would be two bad ones at same time. Not impossible. Could just be bad solder connections as well.

Picture is yellow and green

Your missing the red drive on the set. Its most likly the picture tube. Its a possibility that the red drive circuit could be not working so the best thing to do is take off the gree picture tube socket and put the green board on the red tube. Of course do all this when the set is unplugged. if you have no tv experience. its not a good idea to be messing around inside of these sets.
