Question about Projection Televisions

Blue spots on the screen

I recently purchase a few brand new items from Future Shop in Canada. The sale rep also included in the deal a Hitachi PJTX100 home theatre projector (Store display). Unfortunately, I notice some blue spots on the screen after it has been on for approx. half an hour. I had the unit cleaned (since it was very dirty used as a store display). The unit has approx. 2600 hrs. I have toned down on the 'blue' and seems to have somewhat rectified the problem. I notice the blue patches more so when watching sports. Is there any fix. Can the blue lens be 'bleeding' due to the excessive dust allowed when in use at the store. Many thanks.

I have red burn/sun spot growing larger on my hitachi 50v500 what is the problem

I have the same problem and just got off the phone with Hitachi. explained my problem and that I had read similar posts for this web site. Hitachi rep was very courteous and said that after I had set evaluated by any authorized repair shop, they will ship part needed for repair. He even gave me the name of an authorized shop in my area which I call to set up an appointment($40 charge). Called and made service appointment and person I spoke to said based on my explanation problem is probably light engine and if so labor cost to replace would be around $300 but he added part was very expensive so I guess I can't complain since set is out of warranty. Hitachi # is 800-654-7013. Suggest you have model and serial # handy when you call. Recent lawsuit filed against them may be the reason I encountered no resistance by Hitachi. Thanks to all who posted suggesting this tactic.

Hitachi 50V710 Yellow screen

I contacted Hitachi (800-448-2244) on 02-18-09 and spoke with customer service rep. name Joyce. I explained the yellow in the middle of the screen and told here a Tech came out and said that the problem was the light engine not the light unit. She immediately said that she would send a brand new Light Engine to the repair company that diagonsed the problem. She said I would have to pay for labor. The light engine is a $1000+ part and the repair company said labor would be $300 dollars. The key is you have to say that a tech looked at it and diagonsed it as the light engine and not the light unit. Find a repair company in your area and let the customer service rep. know that they looked at it about a month ago and you can't find the paperwork. The customer service rep will then recommend a company in your area to come and look at the TV. The tech company will probably charge a tech fee $100+ dollars, and about $300 for labor, all total $400 for parts and labor is not bad when the Light Engine itself is a $1000+ part. Hope this helps.

60V500 60 in. - Screen is greenish and with spots

You have a defective light engine and you DO NOT have to pay $1600. Hitachi is aware of this problem and if you call their Customer Relations Department at 800-654-7013, they will give you names of certified dealers in your area. Now when you first call them and tell them that after researching this online and you belive it's a defective light engine, they will act like they know notheing about it but will give you the dealers to call to have them come out and diagnos he problem. It took our tech less than a minute to say it was a defective light engine. We called Hitachi back and all of a sudden, they admitted to knowing about the problem.

Hitachi will then call the dealer and once it's a confirmed light engine problem, they will send out a brand new light engine to the dealer to come out and install. Now, Hitachi will cover the part (around $1500) but they will ask you to pay for the install if your TV is not still under warranty. Our warranty was expired so we paid $400 for the install. Worth it to us being that we paid $3600 for the TV 3 years ago. Please deal only with their Customer Relations Department as the regular customer service department will have you chasing your tail and use a certified dealer. They will not rip you off...and you should not have to pay $1600...only the install! Good Luck!
