    WE have a blue streak on the right hand side of our 60 in. hitachi lcd tv. I don't know how to describe it, its either a blue light, maybe even a blue line. About 6 months ago the color went bad, we had to have a color module installed, which cost $800. Now what is causing this new problem?

I see a big blue spot around center screen


That model is a rear projection and the blue spot indicates failure of the LCD panel in the blue path on the optical block of the light engine. You can't buy the LCD panel only, and if you could you would not have access to the equipment needed to align and position it in just the right place, ie perform mechanical convergence... I'd say the unit probably not worth fixing.

This is an Optical Block (Light Engine) problem. Call a good TV Tech for an estimate.

Have a green tint over 90% ot the center of the screen


I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.

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.

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
