Red Tint on Hitachi 51F510

There is a permanent red tint (haze) over the center (4:3 aspect ratio area) of my Hitachi 51F510 screen. I mainly notice it when watching HD channels since the edge of the tint lies where the edge of the side bars normally are when watching SD channels. Any help/advice would be appraciated.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

My Hitachi 51f510 projection tv just started to have a problem with the color. It appears that the tint is red/pink and I have no control over it.


For me to help you (I think I know what is wrong and it is fairly simple to correct) I need to ASK you something.

If you turn the color all the way to zero and go to a channel that is in black and white, what color is the screen?

If it is red or redish a simple adjustment will correct this problem.

Is the picture with color down to zero on a black and white channel (old movies) red looking?

Before you rate this information, let me know what you find. I am in California and will be available for a while.

HD programs work fine, however, the standard pictures are distorted. I had this once before and someone fixed it but not sure how.


You probably need to to turn your aspect ration on the TV down. Newer HD screens use a 16:9 aspect ratio for HD content which is a wide screen format. Standard definition TVs and programs use a 4:3 aspect ratio. Most flat screen TVs have an option to display in 4:3. This option is most often found in Menu/Setting>Video Options>Aspect Ratio. For standard definition programming you want 4:3, for HD you want 16:9.

How do i get a full picture on my secnium hd tv?


Hello

To get the picture full screen come to screen aspect ratio settings.

The Screen Format feature allows you to change how the image of a 4:3 picture

is displayed on your 16:9 screen. The options are Normal, Zoom or Stretch. If

your TV receives an image with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the image can be displayed in

one of three ways:

Normal The image of a 4:3 video signal is centered with black bars on the
right and left sides of the screen

To get ito this setting mode
Enter the main menu and go to preferences select the screen format; option-2; and change the settings to get a full picture.
OK.

Picture is stretched on wide screen a circle looks egg shape


Hello
This is an issue because most television programming is produced in a 4:3 aspect ratio. The minority of programming is high definition, which is produced in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Because televisions are made in either a standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) format, there is always a conflict with an image being stretched vertically or horizontally. In the case of widescreen televisions, the stretching is horizontal.
Picture Modes
Luckily, most if not all widescreen televisions have a picture mode that allows the user to toggle between a wide (16:9) and standard (4:3) mode. This means that a person can watch non-HD programming in the 4:3 picture mode, and then go to widescreen when watching HD programming. Some TVs have a picture mode that will automatically adjust to the correct aspect ratio. Other people will watch all programming in the wide picture mode, and learn to adjust to watching a stretched picture.
A stretched picture is when a 4:3 image is pulled on the sides to fill the entire screen. People and images end up looking fatter/wider and shorter.
So, what's the big deal?
Some people don't like a 4:3 picture stretched or distorted because it does reduce the overall visual and picture quality. Some people don't like the bars on the side of the screen when a widescreen is in a standard (4:3) picture mode because it looks different.
Solution
There is no fix-all solution for this issue, unless you own a TV that will automatically adjust to the intended aspect ratio. The stretching of the picture is a side-effect, the price we are paying for the better resolution that is digital and high definition. This is definitely something to consider when buying a television, but keep in mind that there is no right or wrong within this issue. It is just the way it is, and there is no way around it unless you buy a 4:3 aspect ratio television.
Hope these lines will clear the issue, if so do rate the solution

My 43fdx20b had a pink tint to it also. The picture was clear otherwise. I found, on mine, I needed to adjust the Red Screen control. It was located behind the front panel. I removed the two screws on either side of the front panel and was able to remove the panel. Then I adjusted the Red Screen control. I found that if I tuned in an old Black and white movie I could adjust the color fairly accurately. Good Luck.

Our hitachi 50c20 is overheating and turning off. It also has a red tint on whole screen when playing. We replaced the bulb but still the same. It is located in a well ventilated area.


i dont know about the overheating problem, but as far as the red tint goes, it you go to the picture setting within the menu and reset it to default, it should take care of that.
