Question about Hitachi Projection Televisions
I have a Hitachi 60V715 that I've owned for just over four years and am still on the original lamp. The set is used for several hours a day practically every day.
Recently I started noticing what appears to be a yellow tint to flesh tones and blues are portrayed as more of a blue green rather than solid blue. However, color appears normal toward the edges of the screen.
As stated, I'm using the original lamp, but brightness seems to be OK, although not as bright as when it was new.
Can an old lamp cause color issues or do you think I have a more serious problem? And if more serious, would it be possible to provide an estimate of what it might cost for a fix. Bottom line, would it be worth while fixing this set or should I look at buying a new one if the fix it too expensive?
Thanks so much.
You likely have a problem with your Optical Engine. It is very expensive to replace and should fix the problem. The lamp cannot cause color issues. You may have dust/dirt contamination in the engine and it could be clean by a servicer or technical person. The blue LCD panel or polarizer may have failed in the engine giving you blue and yellow (lack of blue) type symptoms.
