It's not your nicotine. It's your light engine; it is failing. Eventually, the screen will be so yellow, it will look surreal.


Replace the optic/light engine in order to correct the issue. Average cost for your model is around $800.00 for the part, so you may want to weigh your options. If you can live with it, great; but if you can't, look to put that money into a new set, as you're probably not comfortable with installing a whole light engine.

Now, if it is just your tobacco (which I doubt, since I smoke like a chimney), you will need to remove the screen by removing the screws along the top and back of the set. Screen comes off from the front, and the mirror is installed in the back.

But 99.9% sure it's your engine.

Have you tried cleaning the screen? I smoke cigars, so I have to go around compressed-airing and wiping stuff down constantly. Screens look yellow/orange if I let it go too long.

Hitachi rear projection LCD with yellow blobs on screen


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.
