Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
My 52" Hitachi lcd rear projection 50v500 television has a large red spot on screen when turned on and you actually see it on screen as you are watching it.I paid $3273.00 for this and it is about to expire on extended warranty in December 13, what can I do? I need answers ASAP
THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM IN BOTH THE 50V500 AND 60V500---IT IS A BAD OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE---MAJOR PART---WHOLESALES FOR OVER 600 DOLLARS!
IF YOU HAVE AN EXTENDED WARRANTY---GET IT IN FOR REPAIR!
There are already several class action lawsuits in several states concerning this problem in this model.
What happens is the lamp the set uses damages lens etc inside the light engine--the engines are now being sold on an exchange basis and are all rebuilt units---that are supposed to not have the same kind of problem as the early ones.
