I have green blotches on my Hitachi 42V710

I have green blotches on the screen of my Hitachi 42V710 rear projection LCD TV. I got the TV from a relative who replaced the bulb, but didn't do any further research into fixing the problem. The green blotches always appear in the same location, so it's not a settings adjustment. Is this a common problem and how expensive would repairs probably run?

    open it up and look inside, a TV is a good $50 invistment if you would like to get it working great. If it takes moore to fix it, then a new one. maybe your best bet.

I have a 50inch DLP Hitachi that is 3 and a half years old. I replaced the bulb about 5 months ago now the blacks are blueish and it has a greenish blotch on the screen. It also leaves an image on the...


Contrary to popular belief, any display product can have "Image Retention" and even "Burn-In". This is true for Plasma, LCD, LCOS, DLP, and CRT. I do not see a model number provided, but I would bet that you have an LCD rear projection TV rather than a DLP projection TV. If this is the case, the Blueish and Greenish blotches you are seeing on the screen are the result of UV light damage. UV light will move heavily damage the Blue panel, due it's short wave length. So, bad Blue or Green (absence or Blue) is typically the the first visual indicator of a problem. Replacing the Light Engine will resolve the problem.

Splochy green spots on screen


Colored Blotches on an LCD Projection TV are usually caused by defects or marks on filters or lenses in the light engine (or optical block) First confirm that the lamp or main lens is not discolored by removing the lamp (unplug set and let cool before removing!) and inspecting the lamp itself and the lens that it shine onto. The light engine is an expensive part ($600-$1200) to replace and requires major disassembly.

Hitachi Television Yellowing on the screen


Suggest you call Hitachi and complain. There is an issue with all projection LCD tvs (not just Hitachi) was that the light engine assembly did not have enough vents for cooling. This translates in a green or yellow blob that starts small and grows larger because the LCD screen frame starts to deform with the heat. Guess they did not test with young kids in the house and the tv on more than it is off :-). In March I managed to get Hitachi to pay for the part and I paid for the labor to get this fixed (out of warranty). The new light engine supposedly is better at cooling though I do see a faint 1/4 inch band of green at the bottom of the screen. Blackburn Electronics in Anderson IN has fixed many of these in the Indianapolis area.

Light Blue Circle in Center of the Screen


Hello BruceD,

What you may have is a magnetism problem. I would suggest that you try deguassing the CRTs first before looking into replacing the CRTs. You can have a TV technician perform this for about $50.00 - $60.00.

Thank you,
