I just recently changed my lamp in my hitachi 50 VF 820 and the screen has a large blue spot on it. I have done it before once or twice and all went well. Did I possibly put the bulb in incorrectly or is...


No. If the set turns on and you have a picture, the lamp is installed properly. Most of the time the optical block is the issue. The lamp shines directly into it. If the picture was good before the lamp was replaced, it is possible that that replacing the lamp might have dislodged some micro dust build up internal to the optical block and it landed in a concentrated area causing the red and green lcd panels not to pass light through as bright as the blue giving you a blue spot. Unfortunately the optical blocks are not designed to be taken apart to clean. Replacing the optical blocks are expensive. Most costing in the area of $700.00 to $1200.00 for the part. It also is a major tear down to get to the optical block to replace it. Once upon a time Hitachi had a couple of recalls on their optical blocks for various models. I do not know however if this qualified.
I hope this helps,

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.

I had this same problem over the summer, I had my TV for two years before it went out. You need a new lamp. The lamp is not hard to replace on your own. However, you MUST make sure that you do not touch the lamp (the bulb part) in anyway. If you do your new lamp will not last as long. You can order the lamps online. They range anywhere from 150-300 dollars online. However, I found a TV repair company in my city that only charged me 100.00 for the lamp and they told me If I took out the box that holds the lamp they would replace the lamp for me. They also gave me a 1 yr warrantee on the lamp. All I had to do was un-screw the box from the back of the TV take the box to the TV repair company and I placed the box back into my TV. My TV works. While going through this process, I learned that these lamps go out all the time, the more you watch the TV the more often you'll replace the lamp. I was told from the repair company it could be as often as every year. The Lamp does have MURCURY in it so if you replace the lamp on your own be careful and have it recycled. If you live in SLC UT the repair company I went though was Village TV Sales and Service.

Hitachi rear projection tv


Please contact Hitachi at 1-800-654-7013...it sounds like the light engine. This is really expensive to replace. I had the same problem and was told that because our t.v. was out of warranty that we would have to pay to have it replace. A light engine can cost between $700 and $1200 to replace. I am willing to start a class action law suit to get Hitachi to pay. It is obvious that this is a manufacturing flaw. Please let me know what they told you! Our t.v. is 3.5 years old and the color starting to get bad with the arches about a year ago and since January of this year the color has gotten worse. I called Hitachi and was told that the lamp had to be replaced. We did replace the lamp and the problem was still there...we are now out $200. I called back and explained that the problem was still there. After some research on the internet...it appears the the light engine is the defect!! They will tell you that your t.v. is out out of warranty. This is there way of getting out their responsibility. Don't let them buffalo you! I will start a class action law suit against them to get them to own up to their responsibility. Please let me know as to what you have found out...eng.setters1@charter.net.

Hitachi ultravision 60" LCD with red glow in center


I emailed Hitachi and they sent a new light engine to my local electronics store that they do business with. All I had to pay for was the installation which was today. I did not have to pay for the part or shipping. My tv is just like new again and the red glow is gone. I did not realize how bad it had gotten. Do not call the regular customer service because they cannot or do not want to help.
