When the temp light is blinking, that indicates that one (or more) of the cooling fan has stopped spinning. The TV will stay off to protect itself from overheating until the fan is replaced. There are two fans. One is available here: ; the other is .

Some how a fruit fly or something has flown inside my TV i can see it when i am watching TV. is it possible to get this insect out, if so how?

If the fly is still alive, you can turn the unit off and find some type of vent, or removable cover that will allow you to see inside of the unit. Once that is established, place a lamp nearby and hopefully the light will attract the insect out of the unit. If it is a fruit fly, you can take a small jar and fill it about an inch of red wine vinegar by a vent in the tv, and that should draw out the fruit fly. Of course it will also attract any other fruit flys nearby.

Where is the lamp located on my 50v710 Hitachi TV

The lamp is located behind the lower removable speaker grill on the front of the TV. There will be a lamp door then the lamp is up inside the TV behind the lamp door. Make sure the lamp door is back in place before turning on the TV after replacing the lamp as the set will not work without it installed.

Installing a lamp in the Hitachi 50V710 projection TV

The lamp is on the bottom left side. Remove the plastic piece that goes across the TV below the screen. It will snap off. No screws. Remove 2 screws to access the lamp carriage.
Make sure you DO NOT touch the new lamp with your bare hands.

Hitachi 50v710 Yellow spot

I found out that Hitachi has a class action law suit against them for the light engine problem. I called them and asked what they were going to do for my tv which is out of warrenty. The reply was that they would pay for new light engine. I said what about labor. No they would not pay for labor. I asked to speak to supervisor. I was told by supervisor that the tv had to be inspected by certified repair person. Cost for this was $125 but would be applied towards the total labor cost. Repair guy came to house walked in and said he did not even have to turn tv on to know the problem. We called Hitachi to set up shipment of part. Hitachi told me at that point that they would cover all labor costs also. Part has been installed this week and tv is like brand new set.

Hitachi 50V710 has a yellowish circle in the middle of the screen

If you're good with electronics you can probably do it yourself. It's the price of the part that hurts ... around $1000.

Hitachi 50V710 Yellow screen

I contacted Hitachi (800-448-2244) on 02-18-09 and spoke with customer service rep. name Joyce. I explained the yellow in the middle of the screen and told here a Tech came out and said that the problem was the light engine not the light unit. She immediately said that she would send a brand new Light Engine to the repair company that diagonsed the problem. She said I would have to pay for labor. The light engine is a $1000+ part and the repair company said labor would be $300 dollars. The key is you have to say that a tech looked at it and diagonsed it as the light engine and not the light unit. Find a repair company in your area and let the customer service rep. know that they looked at it about a month ago and you can't find the paperwork. The customer service rep will then recommend a company in your area to come and look at the TV. The tech company will probably charge a tech fee $100+ dollars, and about $300 for labor, all total $400 for parts and labor is not bad when the Light Engine itself is a $1000+ part. Hope this helps.

Hitachi 50v710

Light Engine and Optical Block are the same thing ... just different names. It's listed twice many times so that it's easier to search on the web. Hopefully Hitachi will do something about it some day. I plan on letting everyone out there know about it so we can all go after Hitachi. There is a Suit filed against them for the 50v500 set that has the same types of problems ... perhaps it will cover the problems with the 50v710 also. Hitachi did absolutely nothing to help me with the problem. I had to find the part and fix it myself.
