I have the same problem and just got off the phone with Hitachi. explained my problem and that I had read similar posts for this web site. Hitachi rep was very courteous and said that after I had set evaluated by any authorized repair shop, they will ship part needed for repair. He even gave me the name of an authorized shop in my area which I call to set up an appointment($40 charge). Called and made service appointment and person I spoke to said based on my explanation problem is probably light engine and if so labor cost to replace would be around $300 but he added part was very expensive so I guess I can't complain since set is out of warranty. Hitachi # is 800-654-7013. Suggest you have model and serial # handy when you call. Recent lawsuit filed against them may be the reason I encountered no resistance by Hitachi. Thanks to all who posted suggesting this tactic.

My Hitachi 50V500A has a large area where the color is turning out to red. Is this a lamp or a complete light engine replacement job?


not the lamp. hitachi knowingly had a defect with the fan not allowing enough air to cool the lamp which has burned the red color lense resulting in the red on your screen. enjoy your new brick thanks to hitachi!

Hitachi 50v500 LCD, at the center of the screen there is a lighter spot than the rest of the screen,about a 10 inch diameter circle. Is this a bulb problem.


If it is a redish oval it is not the bulb. Go to a black and white program and take a good look.

If it is the red or pink oval let me know and I will tell you what the problem is.

Same problem


The red death as its called.

Very common in the 50v500 and 50v700 series.

it is caused by a blocked filter deep inside the TV, nearly inaccessible.

The LCD panels overheat (red one or blue one) and the light engine needs to be replaced.

You are better off living with it unless you have a warranty.

Sorry it wasn't better news.

I see a very large red spot on my screen now. I just replaced the lamp and it seem OK. Now I get a large red spot with no indicator lights. Is there a pending problem?

Hitachi 50V500 Red Spot


Deb,
Unfortunately if you're not a technician Hitachi won't even consider sending you a LE for install... They will confirm your status and have you fill-out several documents.
As to the other part of the question, the service manual won't help - there is a procedure for memory re-initializing and after performing that you still have the spot then LE is called for.. But again, unless you're a tech with those letters behind your name Hitachi won't accept the results.
That said, we have done several of these and Hitachi has been exceptional to deal with pre and post install.
Hope this helps!

It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/50V500/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/UX22201D/New.aspx
