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

We are trying to hook up our wii console how do you get it to work. TV says invaild scan freq.

You have to hook it up to a standard Yellow/Red/White RCA jack. If it doesn't work on one, try another. Make sure you're on the proper input you hooked it up to on the T.V. If this doesn't work, try hooking it up to a different T.V. to rule out the Wii as the problem. Try hooking up a DVD player to the same RCA jack as the Wii was on the Hitachi. After all of these troubleshooting methods, you should be able to get your Wii properly hooked up.

Can i connect a regular dvd player to a hitachi flatscreen hdtv?

Yes you can. Simply connect the appropriate color inputs.

If you use red green blue for video, and red white for audio you will get the best picture

If not stick to yellow for video and white red for audio

Just remember color that is on the back of dvd goes to same color on the input for the tv

The only way to repair this is to replace the optics engine assembly, Light engines are rather cheap these days, try looking on for a new or refurbished one.

My picture is all yellow??

In most cases a "yellow" picture on a TV means the lack of blue. If this is the case and you have a 50V500 your light engine is most likely at fault and would require the skills of a technician to replace it.

Black Screen

You really need to check your video connections. It sounds like you have the sound cables connected properly, but not the video cables. Are you using the component connection (blue, green, red, white, red) or RCA (yellow, white, red)?? Make sure the color coded ends are plugged into the right places. If you've done this then your display is shot and you'll need to get your warranty paperwork out or call a local repair shop. Good luck!!
