Question about Hitachi 50V720 Television
I have recently, within the last 6 months replaced my bulb, and in the past week have just noticed a blue cloud near the top center of my screen. I have tried to reset and it won't go away. I have just started using a HDMI cable that looks like a USB cable and have noticed it since then. Also ever since I have been using the HDMI cable there is a pop when I turn off the tv. We have direct tv and have made sure that my connections are tight. not sure what to do or try next please help. thanks!
I had the same problem with the screen turning blue after I had the bulb change. I just had to watch the tv with the blue haze, could not afford for another repair man. The bulb cost me over $400.00 to get it fix. So after about 6 months or so, the blue haze kinda faded away to a lighter yellowish tint, then you could not notice it at all, but the screen started to get darker. I just thought it was these movies made in a darker screen. But Guess what: my blub blew again.
It cure the blue tint. This time, I will order the bulb and put it in myself. If I knew about these bulb, would not had bought the tv. Other than that I like the tv. showed a good picture before all this bulb trouble. Why in the world does a bulb cost this much??????

It may not be the light engine. I also have the cloud, and since I was told that touching the bulb surface could cause problems, I took out my bulb to take a look. The fault is Inside the bulb. A cloud has formed on the inside of the bulb dead center. I have a feeling this is the problem and replacing the bulb again is going to be the solution. By the way, I buy the bulb alone and put it in the casing myself. The last time I got a replacement the casing was slightly and I do mean slightly, out of line with my set.

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped
a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.
My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with hitachi and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
