My hitachi 42edt41 42in picture flickers

It does this after it has been on for a while, it will flicker with like green and purple, it almost looks like what happens when a magnet is put next to it, but there is no magnet around.

    Thank you.

    I do have it plugged into a surge protector and it still does this. And i also have no hd components plugged in. IS there a possible way i could get it to go away? or maybe not be as bad?

    The only adjustment in the back that i've done was to fix all the pixels. But i'll have to try the v hold. And im guessing the lamp is about 4 years old or so.

First. Try using a surge protector.
Could also try purchase a HDMI cable that is compatible with 100Hz,

Possible problems:
backlight inverter wearing out

Very Common In The Newer Tv Sets

Tv's have a chemical/molocules called phosphors that can be deentergized when a tv is left on for a long period of time. Not a serious problem but still annoying

    Have you tried any visual adjustments either from your tv's menu screen or by removing the back of the tv, there are knobs. One knob says V-hold. I would try adjusting any settings first.
    how old is the lamp??? this is one of the symptoms of a failing lamp
    Flickering in picture is caused by a leakage current, and hue shift (low output of one CRT) which can only be adjusted by a repairman

LCD flickering / Purple/Green Photos


I'm sorry to tell you, your CCD its death, no human intenvention can fix it, you must replace it, when a CCD fails, it's literally death, you can not fix it, its a very delicated part, and the fail it's some kind of microscopic evaporation or filtration problem, I'm pretty sure that it has no fix. I spend the last year trying to fix mine, but with negative results.
