    I have this issue also. It started as a very small spot at about 2 years then gradually got as large as the entire screen now that it is 4 years old. Dark areas are red and light areas are greenish.

    Very large red haze in the center of the screen. Can see it even when the screen isn't dark and it is very disruptive to the quality and experience.

Problem is light engine---call to Hitachi got me the part free of charge after authorized repair service verified. I had to pay labor cost ($330) since unit (50v500) was out of warranty.

This problem is caused by a failure of the light optics engine, this is a very common problem on these TV's, I have replaced more than 35 of these in the last 3 years
The price of the part is around $500 to $650 not including labor

This is a convergance IC issue, not certain of the correct IC that needs replacement, but provided the unit is a tri CRT setup then I would assume that the IC that controls the fine tuning of the tubes is shot. More research is required, but upon replacement the unit will need to be reset to counter the offsets. ;o)

Have an LG LCD 42" flat screen probably 3-4 years


no there is no way, you have heated up the screen backing. only way is to remove the lcd screen and change it. as the screen its self is only 0.01 or 0.02mm at the most thick, you will probably smash the screen.

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

I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

John, bad news, short in picture tube, not cost effective to repair, even if it was the tube is no longer available for that age set, the bright side is it doesn`t owe you anything at 15-16 years old, too bad the "new tv`s" don`t last that long, hope this answers your question, BMW Rider

Having trouble with my Samsung television can you help please?


sorry silly girl seen this a hundred times!! The crt socket on the set needs to be carefully taken off and cleaned with wd-40 or tuner wash. its an intermittant connection on the screen contacts and the contacts that bias the grids.. It can be a green haze a blue haze or a red haze. Very common on 3 to 5 year old samsung tvs. Good Luck
