SOURCE: 54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

Can i connect a regular dvd player to a hitachi flatscreen hdtv?


Yes you can. Simply connect the appropriate color inputs.

If you use red green blue for video, and red white for audio you will get the best picture

If not stick to yellow for video and white red for audio

Just remember color that is on the back of dvd goes to same color on the input for the tv

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

Color out of line


Sounds like a convergence problem. First, try using your set's user convergence mode.

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi is aware of it. Here's what you need to do...recently went through this. Call Hitachis customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them you have a defective light engine. At first, they will act like they've not heard of this problem but they are all too familiar with it. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once the tech comes out and confirms the problem, call Hitachi back at the 800 # I listed and they will call and confirm with the dealer that you have a bad light engine. They will send a brand new light engine to the dealer (Hitachi will cover the cost $1500) and the dealer will call you to come out and install.

Here's the kicker, if you're not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the expensive part but you will have to pay the install. Our install was $400 but others on this site have paid around $200. If you're still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and install.

Please do not let any dealer tell you that you have to pay for this part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it to you for free...you just pay the install. Also, deal only with their customer relations at the 800# I listed.Good Luck:)

Hitachi 60 in. 60V715 Yellow Haze


I would first check and see if any software updates are out on this set, you can call Hitachi, if not that then it could be the engine assemble having problems.

Blue screen


I would look for something real simple here. The problem appears to be in your component cables (I would suspect one being bad or connected to a wrong jack). If they are connected properly, try moving them a bit to see if the blue haze comes and goes or try different cables.
