Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
1. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
2. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
3. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
4. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
5. Execute the Memory Initialize operation after the adjustment values have been written on a sheet of paper. Highlight “MEMORY INTI”, arrow to the right and hold the button to the right (approx 5 sec.) until a check mark appears in the box. This activates the Memory Initialization.
6. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.
7. Write back the adjustment values from your notes to their respective adjustment parameters in the adjustment mode. (In other words, set the Data Values back to the the Data values written down before the Memory Initialization procedure). NOTE: Make sure the SELECT Button is pressed on remote after every change to the values. Failure to do so will result in the data values not being changed.
8. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.
9. Turn the set off-on and Confirm the picture remains in a good condition.
BE SURE TO COPY DOWN DATA SETTINGS BEFORE INITIALIZING I2C SETTINGS

if that doesnt fix ur issue..... then
You've got a bad optical engine in that set. Very common in the V500 series. If you're under 3 years the engine is covered, if you're over 3 years the warranty has expired. Expect to pay around $1200 - 1500 to repair the set..... if ur set is under three years old call up hitachi even though it says in ur manual its just one year warranty.... tell them that u ve heard that the engine alone has been under extended warranty.... they ll try to convince u saying that this aint a common problem .... dont budge..... have them come over and atleast bear the labour costs if not for the parts....... tat shud atleast save u 500$
it is not advicable for u to change the engine on ur own...... its a complex process and requires tv expertise..... and also the voltages for these kinda models are pretty high..... shud u still wish to replace it urself.... please stay safe... and ensure u ve switched on the tv and drained all the capacitors

if i ve been of help... kindly rate my service

After lamp replacement, why is picture still green?


it seems like the green was not defective before you replaced the green. remove the red =no change in the screen color, that could be bad. put back red, then remove blue=screen color changed, blue is good, hope you got the idea.

go to the menu screen and select picture mode/menu and you should see the option to make changes to colors selection. You can also try and find one of your DVD's that has THX listed on the case. These DVD's have a calibration program included in the disc which can assist you with fixing the color issue

I have a hitachi rptv model #43FWX20B and the picture has a red tint to it. Opened back up and red green and blue bulbs light up. red bulb stays bright while blue and green go dim to bright as tv plays....


Howdy;
Since you don't have any white lines with the red screen/picture I would say that the red bulb (CRT) is conducting too much. There is an adjustment control for that. The 'sceen' control is behind the speaker cover and service cover. Turn red screen control slightly to the left until you get a good black and white picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

How do i tell if lamp for 50v500a hdtv is burnt out-I get sound but no picture-red l"lamp" indicator light blinks when tv is on. I pulled out lamp box lamp looks fine


Most of the time you will see it burnt inside the bulb. I have had a few occasions where it looked OK. Bulbs are pretty common though so that would be the best place to start.

My set has a RED background on all Inputs--DVD,Sat, Recorded DVR.....when playing a DVD a Bright Blue FBI screen is normal and the Bright Green Movie Rating Screen is Normal but the picture is RED....


I found a way to get into the service set-up....press Display, 5 ,volume + and Power.....green numbers come up---could figure out how to go to a Menu-----but somehow the picture is now perfect !

Anybody know why this fixed it......as I said the RED background was on all input screens....the screen with no signal was a solid red instead of Black......
