    Hi - The previous owner that I purchased the tv from had someone inspect it. The tech said that the motor needed replaced. When I looked online I could not find a "motor" replacement part. The tech did not leave a part #. So based on your comment "the driver circuit for the LCD has failed or the LCD itself has failed. ". What do you feel needs to be replaced. Can you then please provide a part description and #.

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi,
    The previous owner had the tv inspected by a technician. The tech said the motor need replaced. He did not leave a part #. I could not find a "motor" replacement part online. Based on your initial assessment " the driver circuit for the LCD has failed or the LCD itself has failed. ", can you make a determination if it is the driver circuit that needs replaced? The tech said the repair would run around $250. If so, can you please respond with a part # and description. Online links where I could purcashe the product would be very helpful as well.


    Thanks,

    One of your experts replied that it is the driver circuit. When I google the model number and driver circuit I am unable to find anything that makes sense. Please re-diagnose the problem and let me know what replacment part I need to get.

    Thanks,

    Thanks so much for your diagnosis. If I buy this part, is it easy enough to install myself? Also $515 is a little more than I was hoping to spend. Do you know if there is a refurb/cheaper option? Just thought it would be worth asking. If not I will accept the solution and thanks so much for your help.

    That would be great. you can send the picture to localwonder@aol.com

    OK, from your description above, it seems to be a failing digital board. i would like to look at the actual picture of the distortion before i set that in stone. There is a very thin line between a malfunctioning light engine and digital board issues.

    Ok, the pictures were great. they helped massively. The actual issue here is a failing Optical Board Assembly(Light Engine). I was so sure of the digital board previously but, as i looked at the pictures, i noticed that the 30 sec frame was showing distortions that mimic Light engine issues. Then, the start up photo was darkened a bit. the last photo before shutdown was the best to describe the optics failure. the red blob was surrounded by black edges. this confirmed the entire issue.

    Replacing Light engine(AKA Optical Board assembly), will fix this issue.

    great pictures. thanks

    The optics engine is quite hard to replace. i must be honest. this repair is very sensitive and, i recommend a qualified service tech for this repair. The actual optics link that i posted shows the cheapest refurbished part that i could find. these assembles are very expensive, i do agree. You could search that site as well for a slightly lower priced assembly if you wish. it may be slightly lower but, not enough to make a big difference.

The driver circuit for the LCD has failed or the LCD itself has failed.

Hi,it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.This is how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo So basically the 3 Lcd chips that create the colors and image is going bad and thats why you get that color discoloration.Contact Hitachi or look for your light engine online.God bless you and your house!

I have the same tv and the same problem, but my yellow is a cloud around the outside of the screen. My tv was recently moved, and a repair shop told me that sometimes in a move these tvs light engine takes a shock and causes a yellow "band" on the screen. I am hearing that these light engines are not cheap either. Hope this helps you.

Good Day, imfamous44;

This is common for the HIT LCD projection. In most cases, I've seen, the manufacture will cover the cost of the "light engine", but you will have to call them and express your concern. 90% of the time they will cover this, be nice but firm.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
