    I am having the same problem. My (Hitachi 70VS810) television would not turn on one day & the red light (lamp light) came on. So I called out a Hitachi "Certified" Technician who checked it out & said that the lamp needed to be replaced. He said I could order it from Hitachi for around $200 or he can order & install for around $750...I ordered the lamp, installed exactly as the instructions say - made sure everything was tightened and put back how it was prior to ever opening the cover. Plugged the TV in, pushed the power button and all that happens is the 3 lights light up for about 2 seconds then the red lamp light comes on and starts blinking.

    I tried that and there is no tab that sticks out. Once the cover is removed, you can see a tab that goes into this particular spot. I have tried readjusting over & over & can't get it to work... When I plug it back in I can hear a click sound as if it has been powered on, then another click (as if powered off) that is when the lamp light starts blinking.

Take the door back off and look for a safety tab somewhere on the door that will activate a small safety switch, the tab will stick out. Maybe you broke the tab off or just didnt get the door on correctly. Try that and let me know.

    I tried all of the above and no luck but THEN we realized we had it plugged in to the surge protector not the battery backup. Once we plugged it in to the battery backup it powered up like a champ! Good luck!

My Hitachi 50V500A has a large area where the color is turning out to red. Is this a lamp or a complete light engine replacement job?


not the lamp. hitachi knowingly had a defect with the fan not allowing enough air to cool the lamp which has burned the red color lense resulting in the red on your screen. enjoy your new brick thanks to hitachi!

The lamp is burned out, this is an easy fix. Contrary to what the "repairmen" on this site say, you can do it at home with ease. Just type your model into a search engine and order your lamp, they come with great instuctions on how to install.

We bought our Hitachi 50" tv in 2004. Recently it had a blue cloud and finally the lamp went out. We replaced it after ordering the part from Hitachi. This has been only a few weeks ago. The blue cloud is...


id guess your set is like a 50v500 or 50v720 its a lcd rear projection
the blue cloud come from a warped lcd plate in the optic engine and would require replacment to correct this problem
if you have a extended warranty you would want to contact them
if not you might contact hitachi consumer affairs and ask them if there would be any assistance with this repair

Lamp and Temp light flashing


Had the same problem last week.... the lamp has gone out. It can be done by anyone with basic electronic skills....the lamp is about $100 online, more if you by it from a local repairman because he will want to do it, and of course, the quote I got was almost $300.00. I ordered lamp online for about $129 to get it to me and had brother put it in. Didn't look too difficult, so I probably could have done it but I didn't want to ruin my tv. I just posted the manual for this TV on owneriq.com that tells how to do it.

Hitachi lcd 50" model 50V500A - turn off & on


Best advice I have is to price shop for lamp online using lamp or model number. Now it could be lamp or ballast or dmd causing this. But most common is lamp and you will need one sometime anyway. Very easy to change. Also probably a parts dist. in your area stocks it. Good luck.

It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/50V500/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/UX22201D/New.aspx
