This set and the one made the same year the 50V500 both had two main problems----a red or large pink oval in the middle of the screen and the ghosting problem where letters look a little double--hence the term ghost.

I have the Hitachi notice and instructions for this (it was written for the 50V500 which is the same set with a smaller screen size)

It is done by entering the set's service menu and with the remote altering some visual things---

It is copyrighted material written by a Tech at Hitachi--4 pages of step by step instuctions----I have done this on several of their sets.

I cannot post it directly here because of the copyright and I can not give you MY email address.....

Do you have a suggestion for how I can get you this information?

I can scan the 4 pages into my computer and then be able to send this to someone.


Let me know if you have questions.

      the EXIT BUTTON ON THE REMOTE 3 TIMES TO RETURN TO A NORMAL

    10. THIS COMPLETES THE ADJUSTMENT.

I just got this hitachi 50v500 from a friend. We had to have a lamp fixed, but now the screen is blurry, like the ghost shadow problem I've been reading about. The repairman who replaced the bulb said...


There is a specific method for ghost adjustment on the 50v500.

Ghosting is most noticeable on lettering or with the set in the 4X3 format the edges will look somewhat double or have a ghost.

If this is what you have: I have the process which is done with the Hitachi remote to correct this. I got this from Hitachi who published a service bulletin on this problem for this model.

Lamp light on after i replaced the blown lamp Hitachi 60v500a


Was the tv working before you replaced the lamp? if it was then make shure you have reinstalled the new lamp and the door exactly as removed, there is a disconect switch on the door that has to close when the door is reinstalled,or sometimes the ballast may go bad at the same time.Hope tha t will help you fix it.
