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

1 Answer

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

I have a hitachi ultravision 50" hdtv and when the screen should be black it has a redish/orange glow in the middle - any idea what would cause this and how to fix it? the glow started out small in the center of the screen a few months ago and is gradually growing and filling the entire screen except the outside 6-8" now. could this just be caused by a lamp that needs to be replaced?

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!!!

There is no solution - eventually the entire picture will turn blue. It's out of warranty and replacement of the light engine is way too expensive. Start shopping for another tv - I did

I have a spot in the middle of the screen that red shows up as almost black. It looks like the old problems when magnets were put on the old fashioned TV's It is a 50 inch Hitachi Ultravision. I replaced...


That is going to be a failure of the light engine itself. The part number for that is UX25302R. The part is not a user replaceable part due to the complexity to remove and reinstall the new one. Here is a link for the part and to purchase it as it runs 521 dollars. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks...

TV Exploded


Sounds like the DLP lamp failed. You can decipher the Hitachi flashing red light. That should help to be sure.
The DLP lamp replacement is fairly straightforward and can be done with minimal tools

50" Hitachi Ultravision LCD


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.

Many thin black horizontal lines on my Hitachi Ultravision 50" TV


Good Day, LDS also;
You may have a poor seated cable connector. Unplug TV from A/C, remove back look for a large black connector. It connects between the Main Digital Module and the Drive PWB. Re-insert both ends several times to make better contact, use contact cleaner if have but not always needed. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Hitachi ultravision 60" LCD with red glow in center


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.
