50V720 w/pink hue over entire screen

I have a Hitachi 50V720 that now has a pink hue over the entire screen.
I called Hitachi and they said it would require a service call. Luckily, I have an extended warranty until January of '09. I'm thinking that will have paid for itself over and over again since this tv is very unreliable. Any ideas as to what the problem is?

The light engine will need to be replaced. Without a warranty the part is very costly. You are lucky...

I have vertical stripes (yellow, clear, blue then green) covering my entire screen. I have a Hitachi 50v720 HD tv. Help anyone?

T.V may have been magnified. Something magnetic too close to television will fry the screen per say. There are repair people with demagnifiers but doesn't always work

Blue Haze in middle of screen progressively getting larger

This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks

I'll check on your specific model, but this problem is usually caused by degradation of the LCD light engine. Hopefully we can work around it for the short term. I'll update this with the model specific info in a day or so (I'm traveling at the moment).
