Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

People look kind of green - red is going out

We bought our Hitachi 50V500 a little over 3 years ago. About 6 months ago we noticed the color was getting weird but did't have the money to get the thing looked at. We finally took the TV in and the repair person told us it was the Light Engine an the price of the part is $1000.00 + 250.00 to install it. I said screw that - we can buy a new flat panel for around $1400.00 - don't have the money for that either!!!
We tried to contact the techs at Hitachi but they don't seem to want to help. If this has been a problem with a lot of these TV's shouldn't there have been a recall or something? I think the manufacture should be responsable for part if they know there is a problem. I know one thing - when we do save the money for a new TV, it won't be a Hitachi!!!

Hitachi 50V500 black and white only


Not sure what kind of video hookup you're using.I'm guessing you are using a red/white/yellow audio/video cord.If you plugged the yellow(ccalled composite) cord into the green of the component video port,it may look like black and white.(this can be a fun prank to play on someone who annoys you).

Yellow to green tent screen to hitachi tv 42v715


You have some reason to believe it will not?

Some history for you---several years ago Hitachi began along with others to have issues with the optical light engines.

With a mix of high heat from a lamp into the engine (it has a blue,green and red section inside---guess what? BLUE is the first place that gets the heat and is damaged----minus blue and you have red and green which equals YELLOW.

Several of their sets made about 6 years ago (research 50v500) had exact same issues and were settled in a class action lawsuit.

The issue can but does not always affect the entire screen.

The question really is: This set really worth the part and labor cost for the repair?

On that earlier model I replaced under warranty over 40 of the engines. Also Sony and others have had similar issues some of which were settled in court.

HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

Poor quality color with mostly green tones


Optical Block in your TV is going bad. If you don't have any extended warranty - It is pretty expensive repair and is not worth of fixing it in most cases.

Lines across screen


If the lines are slightly diagonal and in red, blue and green you have a problem in the ABL circuit. if the lines are only one color you may take the front grill cover offf and remove the panel. look fro the black box 2 inches square with 6 little controls on it. 3 are for focue 3 are for screen the middle on of the screen is the green adjustment the other 2 should be labled r and b respectivly. what ever the color of the line turn the control labeled screen and r b or g for that color ever so ligtly counter clock wise.
