Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

I have a greenish yellow line at the bottom and a small line across the tv screen

You need to have the light engine assembly replaced on this set. It is generally not an inexpensive repair, and sometimes Hitachi light engines can be hard to come by as brand new ones.

You might be able to find a repair company that can locate a refurb or rebuilt one.

Expect to pay over $1K for the engine + $200 or more for labor. So.....if you can live with it in its present, abashed state, great. If you can't....

Let's go shopping for something new and shiny, shall we?

I have yellow blur in the middle of my screen what could it be? i have a hitachi 50v715 i moved it from one house to another and turned on like that

You have a bad light engine. Contact hitachi(customer service) and let them kown what the symptom is. They know that there is a problem with these light engines. Let them know that you have seen on the net, that there are alot of complaints with this kind of problem. Hopefully they will give you the light engine and you will have to pay for a service call. The reason I know this is they replaced mine and I had to pay $300 for the service call. Keep complaining until they do something for you.The light engine is about $500 if you have to buy one. Hope this is helpful.

Hitachi 50v715 screen is yellow in the middle while the outer edges of the screen show white

The Optical Engine needs to be replaced. Due to the cost of the repair, I recommend you to call Hitachi at 1800-HITACHI to see if they could help with repairs and also refer a Service Facility to you to confirm the symptom.
I hope this helps,

Yellow hue circle in middle of screen. after leaving tv on all night

spherical or oval shaped light starting in the center of your picture is an indication of an led backlit tv.. probably a hitachi. solution, replace light no garuntees not with led backlit sets.. was bad idea to begin with. when the leds start going they start at the center and branch out.

Sony 60" LCD projection TV has yellow screen discoloration

It sounds like you have a bad Blue Polarizer in the light path. I'm sorry but that is something you will have to contact a service center for. It's not something you'll be able to do yourself, I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you.

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects

TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

TV won't turn on with remote

Unplug your set from the wall and wait a few minutes. This fixed the same issue on my 50V715
