It's most likely the light engine. Many times these will have an extended warranty on them so check first if your warranty is still good or see what Hitachi will do for you. If they won't do anything for you except have you send it in then look for a new part online and replace yourself if you feel comfortable. I can find the part if you want to order one, just let me know

That is probably a fault in the ribbon cable connector.

The tv must be taken apart and the canble and connector inspected.

Blue streak and no red on Hitachi 50V500A rear projection TV


Check a second source such as a dvd player or game system using different cables. If the same issue happens then the tv will need repair. However if the issue is not the same it is either cables or the original source.

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

I have a Hitachi 50V500A LCD rear projection set. It is 4 yrs old. There is a streak of Blue color running down from top of screen to the middle of the screen. I have changed the bulb but it has not...


This is a very common problem with your model. My best advice is to have a hitatchi authorized service center come out and give you an estimate then call Hitachi and complain to them about the problem. They will useually supply the part for free and you will only have to pay labor to put it in. A good shop will run you $300-$400 to put it in for you.

Blue Streak


I had the same problem w/ the same TV about 6 months ago. You need a new optical engine. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Once that was replaced, the tv looks great.
