    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)

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


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.

Hitachi WILL replace the part... My tv is over 4 years old and the light engine went bad. They sent me a new light engine free of charge two weeks ago and now it is PERFECT! When you call them make sure to ask for their superior if you get denied by someone.

Yellow Haze Center Screen


The blue filter is burnt out. A very common problem in Zenith DLPs. There are 3 color filters, 1 blue (a pinkish color), 1 green (a grayish brown) and 1 red (it is red) they give you your colors for you picture. This is a simple fix.
