Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Changed bulb about 6 months ago and after about 2 months with new bulb , noticed blue blob if you will that appeared on screen. Should I replace the bulb or do I have more of serious problem. The TV is a Hitachi with a 50 inch screen HD. First bulb that I replaced was burned completly out and red light came on. Other than blue on screen remaing picture okay.
There is no solution with Hitachi products.
If you have read many of the posts, you would have known not to buy Hitachi Telivisions or like me avoid all Hitachi products. There help line is not very useful, they just blow you off. I have never had a worse experience with other manufacturers. Take Onkyo for instance, they had a problem with a chip in their THX receiver and it was a year later ... I called their help line they located a repair store about 40 miles from where I live (in Texas that is not very long) and got my receiver fixed and this was 8 years ago.
Also use Consumer Reports to check the frequency of repair record for the product you are going to buy. In Plasma - Panasonic is a safe brand, in LCD's Sony or Samsung have good repair records.
Research the product before you buy it, avoid walking into a store have the salesperson direct you to a product. And then you save money if you order it online. Amazon online is very good.
