Nope you need a complete light engine. Go here: Look up the model number or find the number and call them. they will also rebuild some light engines for a really good price, as a new engine can cost over a 1000 bucks. Good Luck

The color is distorted on the lower left hand side of the TV, or maybe distorted is not the correct wording. It looks like there is a yellow haze in that corner...

Yellow haze on screen

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

Blue haze and dull yellow patches on screen

The light engine in your set has gone belly up. It is a very expensive repair. Good news is that on a whole bunch of models like yours Sony has extended the waranty on the light engine. Check with a local authorized Sony service center and give them the model & serial number and you might get a free ride. If I were a betting man I'd take odds on 'you're in luck'. LOL

You are correct on the diagnosis of the problem. I would contact a reapir shop and ask them how much labor cost is if you bring them the set and the new light engine.

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.

Hitachi 60 in. 60V715 Yellow Haze

I would first check and see if any software updates are out on this set, you can call Hitachi, if not that then it could be the engine assemble having problems.

Yellow haze in center of screen

Typically caused by a defective light engine. Part is over $1000 last time I checked on it. Could also be caused by a bad "digital board". I've seen this symptom more than once on this set.
