Lost sound on one side of Hitachi Big Screen

the audio amplifier inside the tv "blew up" after 8 years this is nothing unusual. my gut feeling is to hook up your surround sound for your audio. paying to fix this would cost $$$$

Good Day, dv28;
No, the lamp will not correct this. The TV has a bad light engine, it's very common for this TV and very expensive. Call the manufacture and try to get a concession for the part. They normally give it about 75% of the time.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Black out?!?!?

I finally got information from the repair shop. Apparently it is the upper and lower panel drive. The parts are supposedly not more than a couple hundred dollars, though I'll let you know when I get the bill. I do want to say that Hitachi was great when I called them. Even though my plasma is out of warranty by a few months, they agreed to pay for parts if I pay for labor. That just might keep me buying Hitachi products despite the issues I've had with my 2 plasmas.

Hitachi won't replace

I had the same problem a red halo that eventually led to complete discoloration. I called Hitachi and they had their local rep come out and look, they said it would cost $400 to install $1500 new light engine. Then a couple of months ago, I read a post on this site (Varian - Feb. 14, 2008 - suggesting Hitachi Customer Relations at 800-654 7013 was providing the light engine without charge).

So, I called them again and was not able to persuade them to cover my Hitachi LCD projection (50V500). It appears Hitachi has a poor record with their Light Engine as well all of their new generation TV. They have since stopped selling the LCD projection, but they are into plasma and LCD TV and likewise do not seem to have a good track record - as I hear from other users.

I did the smart thing and switched over to a Sony XBR4 Bravia 52" LCD TV 1080p HD at a reduced price (Approximately $2800 from!). My Hitachi cost me about $ 3600 at a Circuit City Store. Therefore, no Hitachi products for me and not from Circuit City, since, Circuit City asked for $4000 for the same Sony TV, I bought from Amazon, which included delivery and installation. Circuit City would add another $80 for delivery.

HITACHI really sucks!!! Put these people out of business!

I have a 50"Audio Vox and the it will turn on for about 15min then shut down. The only way to get it back on is to unplug it from the wall for 3o sec. then it will turn back on. Almost sounds like power supply to me. If anyone can help let me know. Unit is only a month old and no one in are town works on them, Bought it over the Internet and never again for me. Company I bought it from won't do anything./
