Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
The screen has a big yellow circle on it. It started out as a small yellow circle in the middle then spread out to the larger screen. Hitachi told me I need a new lamp but other people told me it's not the lamp, it's the light engine. Before I spend $ on a new lamp, has anyone had the same problem? thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
Just try to reset HDTV. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before
using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.
