I have a Hitachi 50v500. It has a bluish tint like a cloud in the center of the picture that started out small and has gradually increased in size. What is this and can I fix it myself?

The Light Engine is the problem and a major tear-down. It is not a customer replaceable part. Cost of the part is around 850.00 to 1000.00. then you got the labor cost on top of that. Unless Hitachi is willing to help with repairs I would not even consider spending the money. It never hurts though to call Hitachi and see what they would do to help.
Hope this helps,

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.

Contact a licensed, qualified tech, and go from there... Hitachi, based on the test parameters will likely replace the LE free of charge (PARTS & SHIPPING ONLY)... You'll have to pay the tech - but you're basically getting a brand new Tv inside..

50v500 "Red Cloud"


I called Hitachi and told them I had the red cloud on my tv. I was told to take it to an authorized Hitachi service center where they confirmed it was the light engine. I called Hitachi back with the info. and after confirming it with the service tech. said they would cover the part but not the labor. I was told labor would run about $250. Would cost more for in home service. I called Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and I got right to a real person that seemed very informed about the issue.
