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.

I have a ultravision 50v500 and it has a blue blob in the middle of screen. I have just changed the bulb with hardly any change in the blob. I also had the light engine changed approx 2 years ago.


That is caused by excess heat possibly due to poor air circulation/blocked filters.
It is damage to the LCD panels. It won't get any better, just worse.
So look for another Blue LCD panel and someone who is experienced to fit it.

I have a LG 32inch Flat Panel LCD that I purchased 2 years ago at best buy in canada. About 6 months ago periodically I would see vertical strips of see thru blue appearing on the screen. That continued...


The T-CON (Timing Control) board on the panel is/has failed. If it is available, it can be replaced. If not, the entire panel will need to be replaced to correct the TV.

Blue Haze in middle of screen progressively getting larger


This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks

Blue haze on hitachi 51" tv


I finally emailed Hitachi about the blue haze and since my televison is only 16 months old they agreed to pay for the part (they didn't say what part) and I will have to pay the service charge. The repairman is coming out on 2 Apr 08. I will post results after that.

Blue area near center of screen


Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with hitachi and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.

To all that are experiencing the blue blob. This is result of poor maintenance. Projectors must be kept clean on all air intakes. This is to help you all understand the failure cause. Usally not worth repairing.
