Sounds like the light engine. They are having major problems with it, but Hitachi is replacing the part for free, with you paying for the installation. Need to call Hitachi customer relations.

Hitachi 50V500 black and white only

Not sure what kind of video hookup you're using.I'm guessing you are using a red/white/yellow audio/video cord.If you plugged the yellow(ccalled composite) cord into the green of the component video port,it may look like black and white.(this can be a fun prank to play on someone who annoys you).

I have hitachi 50v500 my screen went black and the lamp light comes on by the power button

Lamp light ON means TV needs new lamp as existing lamp is either broken or dead.
Replace lamp in TV, replacement procedure would be written in user manual.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Hitachi 50V500, no picture ,sounds for about 15 sec.then goes off


I would try to re-seat the lamp. Pull the lamp out, check it to see if it may have gone bad again, then put it back in to make sure the contacts are connected. Before applying power, unplug the TV for 5 minute, and then plug in/turn it on.

Most lamps, if bad from the factory, will go out within 3 months of use. It does happen, and happens more often than you would think.

Try this, and see what happens. Good luck.

Hitachi 50v500

For $350.00!!!!


Just do not expect it to be a great picture for long but, you never know you may have a rare good one. For that price I would put it
in the garage and have something special to watch the games on. Even if it goes bad the lamp is almost worth that in some circles.

Hitachi 50V500 TV: has a red line that outlines faces or text

It's a light engine defective part. Hitachi knows about it and if you call their customer relations department, they will refer you to a dealer in your area to come and diagnos the problem. Once Hitachi can verify that's the problem, they will ship the part to the dealer. We had our part in 2 days and had it installed today. No more problems. TV looks brand new. We had to pay the installation of $400 but the part runs around $1500 and Hitachi covered it. We felt like $400 was worth the $3600 we bad 3+ year ago when we bought it. The color will only get worse if the light engine is not replaced. Good Luck! It was an easy fix!
