Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Hitatchi ultravision 53" rear projection lcd tv

I have seemed to developed a "yellowing" screen. when the tv is on with no source running you can see a yellow colour which is in like an oval that takes up about 70% of the screen or so. When we are watching satellite or a movie or running a gaming system the problem is the same with each. This I guess makes my problem mean that it is the tv which is damaged some way or another. Any ideas on what can be wrong and possible approximate cost of fix? We bought this tv like mabye 2 years ago for $3999.99 and its in very good condition so if this is going to cost alot to fix then what would you say would be the most we should spend? eg. if it costed us like $2000 to fix then would you say buy a new tv? Thanks for your assistance with this problem, Nathan.

You have a problem with the optical engine- The only repair would be to change the engine for about $500-$1,000 plus labor. This is a major repair (sometimes caused by dust particles getting on the LCD panels inside the engine, but disassembling the engine to try and clean it is not a reasonable option)

The colour has orange and yellow tones I cant remove

Have you tried cleaning the screen? I smoke cigars, so I have to go around compressed-airing and wiping stuff down constantly. Screens look yellow/orange if I let it go too long.

When I turn on my LCD TL3220 the screen shows a 3" x 6" silver box that says "no sync detected". I have checked the cable box and that seems to be working. Any suggestions

The word ''no sync detected' means that there is no video connection between the cable box and the TV set. Isolate the source of trouble by connecting to the TV a prevoius video source that worked properly e.g DVD player. You should also try to get a new set of video cables as the ones you have may be internally broken.
Please follow the installation instructions carefully especially the colour codes of the video and audio cables i.e yellow cable to yellow connectors of TV and cable box , Red cable to red connectors of TV and cable box etc.
good luck!

DVD Player connection to the tv... Theres three different colours on each side (red, white, and yellow) I already got it hooked up to the tv but the problem is that to hook the other end into the DVD...

Red is usually the left channel audio, white the right channel audio, and yellow the video. Look for something to the effect of "audio out" and "video out" on your DVD player.

Check the proximity of magnetic fields. Large Speakers near the TV for example will cause colour distortion.

Projector Colour Problem

Could be a few things....first you need to isolate a signal source issue or a faulty LED lamp. Simply unplug your signal source and run the menus on the projector. Purple Gone with source unplugged = faulty source our signal Purple still there = faulty device Sounds crazy but make sure you have no interference devices running real close within say 2 feet. cell phone, microwave, magnets, high voltage eletricity...etc
