You have a defective light engine and Hitachi knows about it. You need to contact Hitachis customer RELATIONS department (not regular customer service) at 800-654-7013 and tell Hitachi what the TV is doing and that you have a bad light engine. Initially, they will act they have not heard of the problem but they will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once you have the tech come out and they tell you that it's a bad light engine, call Hitachi back, at the 800 # I listed and tell them what the tech said. They will call the dealer directly and then Hitachi will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitach will cover the cost of the part (part cost around $1500)

Here's the kicker, if your TV is not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part but you will have to pay the install. We recently had this happen to us and our install was $400...worth it to us on a $3600 TV thats only 3 years old.

Please deal only with Hitachi customer relations and DO NOT let any dealer or store where you purchased the TV tell you that you will have to pay the $1500 for the part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are aware of it and they will send it out to the dealer your using and HITACHI will pay for the part...you only pay the install. Good Luck!

I have a hitachi-ultravision digital tv and there is several areas of blue on the screen edges and also a blue area in middle of the screen..


I hate to tell you this but what is called a filter 'Analyzer or Polarizer that is positioned before the Blue's LCD panel is going bad or has a great amount of dust build up on it.
A Good TV Service with experience on these types of LCD TV's should be able to tell you what the cost of repair is.
Blessing,

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...

The best guess is likely convergence control IC's (2 of them STK392-110) and associated circuit problem.
It's acommon fault which causes the symptom you describe - get an estimate - usually between $200-300.

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.
