Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Can't get the menus to show up

My HD plasma TV works great for playing DVDs, but I get no picture when I change back to DirectTV. I think the problem is that I am still on input 1, but I can't get the menu to come up in order to change it, either using the remote, or the TV sid buttons. Any suggestions?

Try to reset tv by unluging it first ,if that does nothing turn off tv press and hold down the input button in the front then press and release the pwr button the service menu should appear. also tv can't be in the HDMI mode. DON'Tpush any more buttons and unplug the tv if that don"t work there is a problem in the video circuitry with the character generator.

Most likelly it is your DVR that has a problem. Their are a lot of issues with those DVR's from the cable or satellite companies. I would recomend swapping it out.

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

If your menus on the TV and other inputs look good then it is probably a resolution setting on your Directv box that needs to be changed. To get HD it needs to be set at 720p or 1080i. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

Picture quality for gaming


Match the PS3's output resolution to your TVs (in this case 720p).
Don't sit too close, otherwise you'll start to see individual pixels.
Make sure the HDMI cable is good quality.
As for picture settings, they will very so much according to the viewing conditions that i cannot give you settings that are gauranteed to work for you. But sharpness should always be 0 when dealing with HD content.
If you want to really get the best picture from your TV, try using a THX disc to calibrate it. Luckily these are normally included on Disney PIXAR DVDs, so go find yourself a copy of CARS or something. Follow the instructions of the THX setup, and you should have youself a sweet looking picture in no time.

Hope this Helps.

Picture goes bad when playing Verizon Fios DVR or On Demand


I had issues when I set an SD override for the box, it would sometimes display as bad input when switching to HD content(as well as display all menus in SD even with HD mode in settings.) Turning that off in settings (also turned off "modes" which has no description) stopped it and gave me guide/menus in HD.

Close captioning


Hi ckay31,

If your remote is not allowing you to navigate through the menus, you may need to replace the batteries.

If this does not work, in the meantime you should be able to navigate the menus using the menu button on the TV. The Closed Captioning option should display under Channel Settings.

If you are still unable to get your remote to function properly, I recommend you contact Westinghouse Customer Service at (866) 287-5555. You may also view your product's manual at http://www.westinghousedigital.com/pdf/15_User_Manual.pdf

Thank you,
Jason,
