    Where do you find the exact model number. Let me know and I will provide it. Is replacing the LCD controller board something an average joe can fix? Or do you need someone technical to replace this part?

  • baerj Apr 15, 2009

    One more thing...I looked up your description of the part you say is needed online and there is nothing called an LCD controller board. Would control panel be the same thing?

    Hi again,

    This is what I found on the sticker...I believe it is the model number you asked about.



    50V500 V3L013581



    Let me know if this is the model number. Turned on TV today and still gray/white screen.

Hi,
Symptom shows that LCD Controller Board is bad in your Hitachi 50" LCD TV and that board needs to be replaced.

Since you have not mentioned exact model number of your TV so I can not provide you LCD Controller Board number info. Click Shop Jimmy and type model number of your TV in search bar to see LCD Controller Board price and stock info.
You need to call qualified TV tech to replace that board in your TV.

    ========================================================================

    Control Panel is some thing else and if you look at TV side buttons, chennel Up/Down and Vol-+, that is control panel.
    LCD Controller board is different and click HERE to have an idea.
    (NOTE: that may not your required board and that is just for reference only)

    Thanks.

Hitachi 50v500, we just put in a new lamp, now the picture on the screen is slightly doubled, what do I do?


Here is what I suggest----look at lettering and or put the mode to 4X3 which is smaller left and right.

Look at the edges of that picture or lettering on screen---this model sometimes has a ghosting where images have a slight shadow, like with rabbit ears.

If this is the case there is a way with the remote to CORRECT IT.

I have the information--confirm if slight ghosting around letters--it can be white or any color.

I have seen this before.

You have a bad light engine. The part number is UX22201DR if it is only a 50V500 model. If the model is 50V500A or 50V500G then the part number wil change.
