Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
For the past month I have watched this blue image slowly creep accross my hitachi 50" LCD TV. Contacted hitachi and of course they said they could do nothing. Followed the advice of some of the comments and finally got some response but no solution. Mentioned about the light engine defect,they denied it, as well as the lawsuit against hitachi. they gave me a number to the nearest service center. Cost $150 for him to come out run a test, if it is the light engine, would be another $295 for him to come out and replace it. Hitachi told me that I would need to fax a copy of the sales receipt, and a repair report. I had some repair done to the tv just months after purchasing it. Found receipt, but faded beyond recognition. What do I do?
Pretty much, surfed the internet, and found out that the common problem is the light engine, not the lamp. E-mailed Hitachi and also spoke with a service tech, who actually told me, he has replaced quite a few light engines for Hitachi 50" LCD TV'S. Also, there is a lawsuit against Hitachi regarding the defective light engines. But yet they are still selling tv's without admitting to the defect. Having my tv checked out through the service tech, and then notify Hitachi again for the upteenth time.
