    I have a 2 yr old Hitachi Ultravision, 55" LCD. Replaced bulb a few months ago. Worked fine for a month or so but now, after the set has been on for 10-15 mins, the picture turns reddish or greenish. Blues disappear. I have read online reports stating the color engine goes bad in Hitachi LCDs after a couple years..also read the it may be the convergence chips? Repair tech is coming out next week but I can make most repairs myself. Dont want to throw bad money at it if its a waste of time. Any ideas? How do I test the set. Thanks for input.

I emailed Hitachi and they sent a new light engine to my local electronics store that they do business with. All I had to pay for was the installation which was today. I did not have to pay for the part or shipping. My tv is just like new again and the red glow is gone. I did not realize how bad it had gotten. Do not call the regular customer service because they cannot or do not want to help.

Hitachi 50v500 LCD, at the center of the screen there is a lighter spot than the rest of the screen,about a 10 inch diameter circle. Is this a bulb problem.


If it is a redish oval it is not the bulb. Go to a black and white program and take a good look.

If it is the red or pink oval let me know and I will tell you what the problem is.

The colour keeps going to more blue and the screen is fuzzy?


you should be able to align your projectors through the setup menus. you will have to align two colors, usually red and green to stop the fuzziness and you should look at the tint selection in the menus for the blue color if the realignment does not fix it as well.

I could not locate the manual on the Hitachi website.

Tv screen has a red/orange glow in the middle -should be black


I have the exact same problem. I had purchased a new lamp shortly after the warranty expired and never needed to use it. I decided to install it today to see if that helped with the red glow. No difference. Someone else posted that when the TV is moved (we just moved from Canada to the US) it can misalign or damage some component. Still trying to figure out what that is...probably cost more to fix that a new TV!!!

Good Day, imfamous44;

This is common for the HIT LCD projection. In most cases, I've seen, the manufacture will cover the cost of the "light engine", but you will have to call them and express your concern. 90% of the time they will cover this, be nice but firm.

Good Luck, big IRISH.
