Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Red haze when the screen is dark there is a red haze in the center of my 60v500. the tv is 4 yrs old. it is perfect other wise.. Same problem here. My model Hitachi60v500A Purchased Jan 15 2005 TV is 4 years old. Had the lamp replaced 6 weeks ago and shortly thereafter noticed a reddish haze generating from the center of the screen to cover about 60% of the screen. It is not noticeable when there is a daylight shot but as the picture environment gets "darker" the pink hue becomes more apparent. When the set is powered off, the glow is there in "high" lamp mode but when it goes to cool down the pink is gone. I have a technician coming over in a few days to have a peek at it.

Your red color gun is starting to go out, either the gun itself or the control board. I would recommened having the technician take another look at it.

The most common cause for this is a defective color wheel.

    The most common cause for this is a defective color wheel, to find out the color wheel must be inspected by a technician.

    Additional causes can be:

    Defective light engine.

    Polarization on the display surface.

    If the model is a rear projection LCD d, defective LCD panel.

    The first thing to inspect is the color wheel. If replacing does not work, the light engine should be tested, probably the light engine is slightly defective and it is the cause for this problem.

    Light engine is a very expensive replacement. If the TV is less than one year old, then it is covered with factory warranty, in this case call the number listed on the owner manual to register the product and validate warranty, the repair will be free of charge.

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

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.

LIGHT ENGINE FOR THE HITACHI 60V500


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.

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
