I have the exact same problem. I had purchased a new lamp shortly after the warranty expired and never needed to use it. I decided to install it today to see if that helped with the red glow. No difference. Someone else posted that when the TV is moved (we just moved from Canada to the US) it can misalign or damage some component. Still trying to figure out what that is...probably cost more to fix that a new TV!!!
If the lines are slightly diagonal and in red, blue and green you have a problem in the ABL circuit. if the lines are only one color you may take the front grill cover offf and remove the panel. look fro the black box 2 inches square with 6 little controls on it. 3 are for focue 3 are for screen the middle on of the screen is the green adjustment the other 2 should be labled r and b respectivly. what ever the color of the line turn the control labeled screen and r b or g for that color ever so ligtly counter clock wise.
Ok if your hitachi TV dies with no power anywhere try this: Some models have a kill switch under the bottom edge. It's like a gray switch like a small light switch press it back in and voila let there be LIGHT. Saves you at least a $200 trip to repair shop!!
This might be due to the screen not receiving drive signal from the screen driver board; dry solder connections, broken bus lines, and or defective screen could be the problem. I would suggest taking the set to a qualified TV repair shop and having them diagnose and repair this issue, due to the damage that might be caused by the removal of the broads to get at that part of the set.
You can try complaining to Hitachi, but they won't admit to a problem. A new light engine is necessary as this is what they describe as "a technical issue" with this type of TV.
It will cost upwards of $600.00. Good luck, the more complaints they get, the better. I would never recommend a Hitachi to a friend (or enemy) after the treatment I recieved from the customer service reps.
