Hitachi 61SDX01B Dark Picture and bad color

My Hitachi 61SDX01B 61" is now too dark and doesn't seem to have depth in the picture anymore. I turn up the brightness and contrast to 100 just to try and make it better. But it just doesn't seem to help that much. The color also seems to be off now. I notice when I use the Magic Focus that the blue seems clear and fine. But the red and green have a glow around them and are unclear. It also doesn't seem to finish the entire magic focus process anymore and when it stop... there is a green 10 on the bottom right of the screen before the actual picture comes back on. I would like to know what might be causing this and if this is something I could fix myself. If I need to replace something or have a tech come out, is this something that would be too expensive to even mess with? Thanks!

There isn't anything you can do yourself for this problem, but it should be worth having a qualified technician look at it.

My 61" hitachi rear proj has a very dark picture.


It sounds that lamp in TV is weak and not throwing enough light to bright the screen for good image.
How old is this TV and did you replaced its Lamp recently?
If lamp has not been replaced yet or in last 2-3 years, replace it.

Hitachi 61SDX picture got dim shows Code 3


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.
