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.

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.

Typically this is an indication of dirt in the optical path. Try blowing out the area using compressed air. Also, make sure that the lens is clean. Use a cloth and solution made specifically for cleaning lenses.

TV wont stay on


Sounds like a short somewhere in there. I see old pre-HD big screen sets going for well under $200 on my local craigslist, so look there for a good replacement, because the repair will cost more.

Or fork over about $500 for a good used HD projection set.
