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.

### 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
