Hello,
If you have RED color that starts from Center of the Screen,(no red color on sides ) 100 % your light engine is deffective..
In order to solve this issue Replace Light Engine Control Board (also called Driver Board ) attached to light engine.

Good Luck

The screen is green no color at all it makes aloud humming sound what is the problem we replaced the lamp last year


Do you have a cable box going to the TV and is this condition on all of the inputs or just one. Chances are you have standard video connection plugged into the component inputs.

If you have a (yellow/red/white) cable make sure you have it plugged into a connection on the tv that matches those colors because if you have a standard video (yellow) plugged into the Green then you will get a black and white picture.

If you are plugged into a component connection you will need a total of 5 RCA style wires. One will go from Green to Green, another from Blue to Blue, another from Red video to Red video, anther Red audio to Red audio and white audio to white audio.

The common mistakes made with this connection is the reversal of the RED video and RED audio which will cause the humming noise you spoke of as well.

Thanks,
Robert

Green screen


inside the light engine there is a red a green and a blue glass color filter.The heat from the lamp causes the color to burn off the glass.You need new filters .One is red one is blue and one is green.The lcd itself doesnt make the color,it is a black and white device.The colr comes from light shining through colored glass

Screen is yellow tint regardless of color adjustments we make. there is a red circle when the screen is black


A discolored Blob or blotchy pattern usually in the center of the screen. the problem is becoming all too common with Hitachi projection sets. What happens is that one of the lenses in the optical block (or light engine) starts to burn (in thi scase the blue one) or discolor due to overheating because of a blocked air filter causing poor air (cooling) circulation. Nothing can be done when the damage is too far-gone except to replace the light engine-at a cost that makes it not worth repair. if the damage is minimal than to reduce further damage, the air filter should be replaced. The Light engine needs to be removed in order to replace the air filter. Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

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.
