Greetings,
You said it yourself. You hate this set. My question is why did you bother to spend $900.00 to have it fixed when you could have bought a flat panel plasma or LCD set that would give you a better picture than any rear projections set could. My suggestion is since you hate this TV with a passion it's time to start looking for a new TV.
I know this is probably not the answer you are looking for but I would suggest that spending anymore money on repairs will most likely be a waste of your hard earned cash.
The blue spot is most likely either an alignment problem or a weak projection tube. Both problems will cost you unknown amounts of cash to repair.
Hope this will help to put the proper perspective on your problem.

Yellow to green tent screen to hitachi tv 42v715


You have some reason to believe it will not?

Some history for you---several years ago Hitachi began along with others to have issues with the optical light engines.

With a mix of high heat from a lamp into the engine (it has a blue,green and red section inside---guess what? BLUE is the first place that gets the heat and is damaged----minus blue and you have red and green which equals YELLOW.

Several of their sets made about 6 years ago (research 50v500) had exact same issues and were settled in a class action lawsuit.

The issue can but does not always affect the entire screen.

The question really is: This set really worth the part and labor cost for the repair?

On that earlier model I replaced under warranty over 40 of the engines. Also Sony and others have had similar issues some of which were settled in court.

HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

I have a mitsubishi wd 62530 08' model had blue showing through left side of tv working towords the middle, screen looks greenish yellow what is the problem


This is a known issue with these sets.

They use an OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE which the lamp shines directly into: the blue section (it has blue,red and green sections with lens and baffles) is the first to get hit by the light and its heat.

Commonly it burns that area (blue) first.

This is permanent damage and either the display chip has to be replaced (over 200 part and not a do it yourself replacement) or the entire engine has to be replaced.

Sony and similar brands have the same problem--Sony is fixing a lot of them even if out of warranty for free (class action lawsuit!).

This is a 98% certainty in your case.

You may want to contact Mitsubishi to see what if anything they will do.

You might not get a straight answer from them so GOOGLE the model number and research this on the internet-------

Blue spot on screen


  1. First, look for the source of the problem. Large speakers, especially older ones, are the most common offenders. Notice the position of the blue spot on the screen (left, right, upper, lower, etc.) for an indication of which direction the magnetic field is coming from.
  2. If you think you have determined the source of the magnetic field, try moving the object away from the television screen. If this does not work, continue looking for other potential causes.
  3. f you are unable to determine what is causing the magnetic field, try moving the television. Sometimes magnetic interference can come from a neighbor's equipment, especially in apartments and condos. Moving the television to another part of the room, away from shared walls, may help.
  4. If none of these techniques succeeds in removing or improving the appearance of the blue spot, try to find if their is any demagnetizing coil button available in front of the TV panel , it may be symbol like magnet and a diagonal line on it

TV issue


There are many causes for spots on top of an LCD rear projection tv, you are probably in the first two cases, both require part replacements and repair job.

If the spots are faint blue, green or pink shadows, then it can be a problem with the anti polarization panel placed on top of the LCD.

Similar spots (colored shadows) may be caused by a problem with the light engine, in that case the fix will be expensive.

If the spots are bright lights, like an aura, that is a problem with the color wheel.

Problems on the light tunnel can cause static gray shadows.

If the spots are static dark stains than that is lcd liquid, the LCD panel must be replaced.

Mitsubishi Projection TV Model TS 4573 not TS 4545


No if the problem is the screen, you will need to replace the entire screen assembly. some screens come in two parts. The inside of the screen is called the freznal lens, the outside of the screen is called the lenticular lens. Good Luck

Blurry spot


Depending on the age,as you did not mention, you could have a contamination inside the surface of the Picture tube in the liquid coolent or silicon spacer in between the crt and the lens assy. This will get worse with time and will happen most likly again on the other tubes unless you have a pro come out and replace the liquid and refill with fresh stuff. Its not a job for the unexpirenced person with TV sets. You may want to think about another set depending on the age of this set and the Estimate you get on this set. Good Luck
