Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
After watching my hitachi 50v500 50" a weird blue blob runs from the top and slowly runs towards the bottom. I think that it might be some sort of condensation inside the tv because it like dries up after a while but then when it gets hot again it starts all over again. Also its near the window so im not sure if thats the problem. thanks
I had a growing, shifting blue patch on the screen of my 50" Hitachi hdtv. It signifies a dying light engine. Hitachi will provide the part free of charge if you call their customer service number. It's a good thing because the part (essentially the core of the TV) costs from $600 refurbished to $1200 new. I had to pay for the labor, which in my case was about $300. Not good, but Hitachi acknowledges that the part was poorly designed and overheats, so they will do that much. The new light engines are re-engineered, I was told. Move asap, because if your set is more than two years old, they are crankier about providing the part.

The unit requires a replacment optic block to correct the problem your experiancing
if you are the original owner you may contact hitachi customer relations and they may opt to supply a remanufactured optic block and you would be responsible for the labor but still cheap enough and you get a good working set again
