Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Yellow residual image/smear

Set is only approx 4 years old; never had a problem until now. Recently noticed a yellowish "blob" or smear in the upper right hand quadrant of the screen. Really noticable against a white background, but blends into a color image. Stain appears constant in size/shape regardless of input. Tried running "Magic Focus" convergence reset several times without result. Even cleaned the outer glass screen to ensure it wasn't an external stain...unfortunately, it wasn't. I see this as an excellent opportunity to buy a new flat screen TV...my wife, on the other hand, insists I try to get it fixed, or tells me to ignore it. Regardless, appreciate any/all advice or help you can give. thanks!

Hi my Sony KDF-E50A10 has a yellow blob in middle of the screen. Tried changing the bulb and yellow blob was worse. any suggestions?


Your Optic blog has failed. The bulb will not fix that. There was a class aciton lawsuit against Sony about this a few years ago. The Optic block must be replaced(only posibble fix) Sony Rear Projection LCD TV

To fix it out of pocket would be ridiculously expensive($800+). Return the lamp or use it until the image is too bad to watch. Then treat yourself to a new TV.

I am well versed on this issue and would not recommend fixing this

I have the Sony KDS- 60A2020 60 inch TV. Recently, my picture has appeared more yellowish. Everyone on it looks like there dark yellowish or have fairly dark (bronze) sun tans. I changed my lamp yesterday...


I have a older 2006 SXRD rear projection TV. I had the same problem after the TV warmed up this yellow tint started in the corner and crawled its way down the TV. It turned out that Sony had a recall on the optic block of the TV. If you replaced the Lamp and adjusted the color this kinda sounds like the same problem. Here is a link explaining it. In this article it shows up as a green haze and blob, but in my TV it manifested as a yellow tint.

Hitachi rear projection LCD with yellow blobs on screen


I have the same tv and the same problem, but my yellow is a cloud around the outside of the screen. My tv was recently moved, and a repair shop told me that sometimes in a move these tvs light engine takes a shock and causes a yellow "band" on the screen. I am hearing that these light engines are not cheap either. Hope this helps you.

8x2 inch grainy, yellow blob


The issue is caused by the optical block. It was an inherent issue in the TV and cannot be fixed without replacing the optical block. It usually costs about $1000 for parts and labor. It is impossible to fix without the part as it is an inherent irreversible issue.

The TV starts to have problems with the optical block after a certain number of hours, you did not have this problem until much later because of limited use.

Sony did extend the warranty for the optical block parts and labor but it expired on 6/30/08. The only option you really have is to keep contacting Sony, explain to them your situation and they might cave in to paying for part of the repair due to special circumstances.
