    Another suggested that it was the color engine. Which diagnosis appears to be more correct?

That looks like you will need the digital board replaced. I would suggest having a technician do this for you.

    It could be the LCD driver board on the light engine. The last time I checked the price of that board it was almost the cost of the light engine and more of a night mare to replace.

Picture shadow


Double check you cable connection. Also see if this occurs primarily on local channels. If it is only on local channels it is a cable connection issue. loose connector or moisture that has gotten on the screw threads of the cable connector due to the elements outdoors.

Some of the components in the video processing boards most likely have become thermo sensitive. Over time, they will fail completely. The service rep will change the processor boards that have the fault.

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!
