There are two major problems. The first is I am not sure that a distributor would sell you an optics, The have to be returned for refurb and are usually only available to authorized servicers. But there are exceptions. Secondly, if you aren't familiar with how to do it, this is an extremely complicated procedure. Before it is all done, your tv will be in two piecse and spread out everywhere. The optics cost about $400 without the dud fee, You may want to consult a servicer to get an estimate on repair.

Hitachi 50v500 sceen has little dots showing


You have a set that was involved in a large class action lawsuit---the optical engines in this model had issues where they turned red or another color---little dots in picture is a classic optical light engine problem---last time I looked the part alone not counting labor was over 600 dollars.

My Hitachi 50V500A has a large area where the color is turning out to red. Is this a lamp or a complete light engine replacement job?


not the lamp. hitachi knowingly had a defect with the fan not allowing enough air to cool the lamp which has burned the red color lense resulting in the red on your screen. enjoy your new brick thanks to hitachi!

Whats the differance between hitachi 50v500 and 50v500a?


Not much difference--the a version is a later model with some differences in cabinet etc.

Both along with the 60V500 are prone to bad optical light engines--redish oval in the middle of the screen--there are several class action law suits underway currently about this set.

Red circle in middle of screen color is way off


You have a problem with the light engine. Hitachi has extended the warranty on some of these. This is a major expense with major labor charges. Better get in contact with a local Hitachi authorized repair facility.
