Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

60" LG Lcd Projection TV

My TV has developed a yellow spot in the center of the screen about 3' long and 2' wide. As white images move into this are they turn yellow and then again white as they move out of this area. From previous discussions you posted I assume I have a faulty light engine. Is this a common problem with LG? Thx.

    I have the same problem and am developing more yellow spots. The picture is also getting dull. Is this something I can work on myself? It's out of warranty, so why not, right? Where is the cheapest place to get a bulb? Is a bulb and a light engine the same thing?

Spot in center of screen, if the color pictureis black the spot is blue, if the picture is white the spot is yellow.


Spots in screen is commonly caused by defective LCD on the optical assembly. LCD replacement is very difficult. I suggest to contact the nearest service center at your area.

Yellow-green spot in center of screen


Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.

Large yellow spot in center of tv screen


Sorry, but there is no cheap method of repair for this unless it is in warranty.

This TV will require replacement of the LCD Prism unit.

This Prism blocks and allows colors so that the 3 LCD images may be mixed to produce the final image you see on the screen. When this becomes damaged or defective, it leaks colors (light). This Color Leakage apears as spots on the screens.

Where you see the spots is where the specific spot on the prism that is leaking light, the specific color that is leaking also.

This parts cost alone is normally $500 to $1000 dollars but is usually replaced under warranty.

Good luck.....

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration


I would suggest to try to get this TV fix while still under warranty. Normally the manufacturers give one year.
In regards to the discoloration, there is not much you do but to let the Sony authorized repair center knows about it so they can fix it. Ask them if their work is guarantee as well for how long.
Good Luck.

Yellow spot in center of screen


I have recently developed the same yellow spot problem on my Sony KDF-E50A10  50" LCD television...a large yellow circular hue that takes up the bottom center of the picture and is especially noticeable against a white background.  It has been diagnosed as the optical block (light engine) and without an extended warranty Sony refuses to assist with the repair cost.  Repair was estimated at $1,100 plus tax and travel fees to my home.  So you see, it is not only a Hitachi problem.  You would think they could build something that would last more than two years considering the initial cost of over two grand for the TV !
