Red screen on Hitachi 50V500

Our tv is only three years old and the screen is red. Sometimes it doesn't turn on and goes into default mode. We have been told that it might be a bad color or light generator. Could that be the problem and if it is how do we
get it fixed?

Any time the screen is all red it's typically two problems from my experience in this technology:

1] you might have the input of a component connected incorrectly. Check the connections, fix it if you need to. If certain colors do not match up or are hooked up properly with the component or composite or other connections it can create a red, gray, or green screen from it.

If that does not work...then...

2] Unplug your set then plug it back in entirely [power input]to make sure that will not create a simple fix. If that is not the case for those above it can typically be a mother board going bad. Some times it can be affordable some times costly. I'd recommend contacting the manufacturer even if its out of the warranty period they are mostly okay with helping you over the phone to find a local repair auth. center used to working on this type of technology since not every service center knows how to.

Let me know how things go. I do wish you the best of luck and eager to hear back from you on how things work out with these two things. Any red screen is bad, just as the old saying when you are out in the wilderness goes, "eat red--your dead" that is very true for most TV sets as a sign it's heading out....

I have a red glow in the middle of the screen and the color is dim. It has been gradually getting worse as the year has gone on. Is this a bulb issue or a convergence issue?


Hi,
This is light engine issue, light engine produce image and project it front screen of TV.
I'm afraid light engine replacement would cost you much, $1000 plus, check with local tech for estimate.
Thanks.

Hitachi rear projection LCD with yellow blobs on screen


I have the same tv and the same problem, but my yellow is a cloud around the outside of the screen. My tv was recently moved, and a repair shop told me that sometimes in a move these tvs light engine takes a shock and causes a yellow "band" on the screen. I am hearing that these light engines are not cheap either. Hope this helps you.

TV turns on but has no picture or sound.


Take it in to an authorized Hitachi servicer. ther are too many things that need to be checked .The difference in cost of parts could be $200- $300. Not something you want to guess at.

TV WONT TURN ON. BLUE LIGHT GOES ON THEN THE TWO RED LIGHTS BLINK IT HAD BEEN WORKING THEN ONE DAY IT JUST WONT TURN ON.


I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.
