    I have a 50V710 Ultravision that is about 2 years old and there seems to be a greenish halo around the center of the screen. I have no idea what it is or why it is there.

    I have a Hitachi 50V710 (2.5 years old) that now has a green/yellowish tint. I called a certified technician to identify what's causing the problem, he said the light engine needs to be replaced. The cost is approximately $800 for parts & labor. I did call Hitachi customer relations & their not aware of any issue with a faulty light engine & offer no support.

    Mine is yellow spot in the middle of the screen. This spot has eventually spread to the outer edges of the screen.

You have a defective light engine and here is what you need to do...we just went through this. You need to call Hitachi's customer relation department at 800-654-7013 and tell them the problems your having and that you think it's a defective light engine. They will initially act like they have no idea what you're talking about but will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once you have a tech out from the dealer and they confirm the light engine problem (takes less than a minute) call Hitachis customer relation department back and tell them that a certified tech confirmed the problem. All of a sudden, Hitachi will say they are aware of the probelm...imagine that!

Hitachi will call the dealer and confirm this with them and they they will send the light engine directly to the dealer and Hitachi will cover the cost of the part (around $1500). All you will pay for is the install. Our install was $400...worth it to us since we paid $3600 for this TV 3+ years ago and it's been a great TV.

DO NOT let the dealer tell you that you will have to pay for the part. Hitachi knows about this problem all to well and they are replacing the part for free.. Again, you only pay the install. Please deal only with the customer relations department at the number I listed above. If you deal with their regular customer service people, they will have you chasing your tell. Hitachi customer relations will take care of you! Good Luck!

Make sure, if your using component cables ,that they match up color for color and are plugged in.If it looks good try adjusting your colors on the TV.You can also try unplugging the TV for 5 min. and then plug it back in.This might be a TV issue.

Pictue is dark as hell


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
