Hitachi hdtv 60" yellow circle on screen

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.  tico@aloha.net

    my Hitachi 60V715 has the same problem. New bulb does the same thing. Internet research I did favors a bad light engine. Over a $1000 fix.

    I had the "red bloom" problem that many people have reported online, so in April 2008 I had the light engine replaced. Everything was fine until now, in November 2008, when I am seeing a slightly yellow circle on the screen. It's invisible except in darker scenes. I don't know if it is going to get progressively worse or not. I guess the solution would be to replace the light engine yet again, but I don't have confidence that a new engine would be any less flaky than the two I've already gone through.

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.

SOURCE: Hitachi Rear Projection LCD TV Lamp

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.

It's the Digitial Optical Block. Sony is working with owners of this, and many other sets that have the same problem since the 2004 model year lineup. http://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

Hitachi 50V710 has a yellowish circle in the middle of the screen


If you're good with electronics you can probably do it yourself. It's the price of the part that hurts ... around $1000.
