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

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.

My hitachi 43fdx20b has a pink tint to it. I have noticed that if i move the tint slider one way or the other it will turn the screen green, but now it doesn't. Does this have something to do with my...

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.

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.
