Question about Hitachi 50V720 Television
I am in the process of replacing the second bulb on the above TV. The first one was under warranty, but the cost of the second bulb was added to my Master Card Account. The TV was just purchased around December 2005. What is the average life of these bulbs? Shouldn't Hitachi start including about 3 or 4 of them free to new TV buyers?
I also wonder why the wait time is so much longer for Under-Warranty Service than it is for Not-Under-Warranty Service? I believe it's that money thing.
I have the same T.V. Purchased Dec. 05. Replaced the bulb in Aug.07. The latest issue in a blue haze over taking the entire screen. I used to sell these T.V.'s so I knew the bulb had a certain lifespan ( approx. 3 years with average use. 3-5 hours per day) If you we're not made aware of this then you had a poor sale associate. The blue haze has me very worried that I bought a POS. I now feel bad for recommending Hitachi to some of my friends. I also recommended Sony to them as well, thank god most of them went with Sony. I will never buy a Hitachi product again!

I would suggest a class action lawsuit, because I was told by curcuit city (when I bought my junk Hitachi 50v720) that this tv was a good buy and I would not have to worry about any real major problems. Well, I am having the same identical problem as everybody else. I say let's sue this company and the ship it road in on...

Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.
