Has there been a magnet or unshielded speakers near the TV? Sounds like the tv needs to be degaussed. You will have to bring it into a repair shop to have this done.

This is because of the magnetic interference, you better isolate the TV from the devices producing heavy magnetic interferences like Speakers Microwave, Cellphones and Cordless phones. Then go the main menu in that you will find setup option , in the setup option go to the picture setup you will find option called degauss just click on that, the screen will flash for a second and everything will be alright. Frequent degaussing is not advisable as it reduce the life of the projection tube.

My picture has been getting a blue area in the lower right hand corner of the screen and it is getting bigger farther along the bottom and the right side, also noticed a ring or outline of a circle when...


It is light engine that is going bad and causing blue haze/ clouds etc.
It is an expensive part, and I would recommend a new TV instead of its repair.
Thanks.

Interference?


The picture tube on a TV can be magnitized by the Earth's magnetic field. The noise heard when you turn a TV on (usually followed by a static noise on the face on the TV) is called degauss. What this does it remove any magnetic variations on the tube due to things like the magnetic field and speakers. However, changes to the TV in orientation to the Earths magnetic field will cause the tube to have a magnetic bias. This is most prominent when turned 90 degrees. The easy way to clear this is to turn the TV off for a little while and then turn it back on. But remember that any movement once it is on can cause the discolorations to reappear. My suggestion would be to turn the tv after you've moved it to the location you'd like to view it.

Blue area near center of screen


Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with hitachi and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
