We had this same problem with our 60+ inch Hitachi. Except our tv had a red hue in the center of the tv before we replaced the bulb and then the blue hue joined the red one after the replacement. It ended up that our light engine was defective (which is an extremely common problem in Hitachi tvs). You should read through some of the forums on here to see if you can find your solution exactly (that is how I figured out my problem was our light engine). You might have the light engine problem also, but I am not sure since you don't have a red hue. Hitachi pays for the replacement light engine part (worth $1200). I just finished the process and now my tv is like new. If you want me to go more in-depth with the light engine repair process let me know.

Blue shadow


No. I would suspect it being a Optical Block issue. I is not a pretty repair not to mention the cost factor. If you could get in touch with Hitachi Customer Service they could lead you to s service facility that could comfirm what I think.

Blue shadows & black screen with flashing red light


Your problem is the convergence IC's (part number STK392-110). They will need to be replaced as well as matbe a couple of burned resistors that will be right by the IC's. Due to the complexity of this repair as well as the alignment required after the parts are replaced. you may want to contact a tech. Let em know if I can be of further assistance. You can find a local tech by going to the homepage of FIXYA and inputting your zip.
