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.

What's a Hitachi TV model 50v715 worth looks in good shape but dark screen and will thus be a major problem owner asking 100.00 for it

I would not pay 100 for it. maybe 20. If the screen is dark that would mean there is something going wrong with it. It will most likely cost more than 100 to repair. Unless you find parts on ebay and fix it yourself.

I have a 50 in lcd rear projection t.v. and it has yellow blotches and blue dots all over it do i need a new screen and if yes where can i get one?

Hello Jeff,

If the blotches and dots change depending upon source like DVD, air, and so forth (actually depending on video format 720, 1080, etc), then it is likely a driver issue that controls the display. If the artifacts are there all the time, then you may be looking at the panel itself.

if within warranty, then start with Hitachi for repairs. If out of warranty, a local electronics retailers should be able to direct you to a service center that can repair it for you. Otherwise, a rent-to-own outfit may be able to fix it in house and you pay the store directly.

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,

I have a Hitachhi 52

Sorry to say, But its probably the light engine.Hitachi has had big problems with this, its all over the net about this kind of problem. If the set is not very old, you may try to call Hitachi and complain, They did replace mine in my 50V715 but I had to pay a service call of $300 to have an authorized dealer replace it. Hope this is helpful.

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.

I would suspect more likely a problem with the power supply, if you have already tried to set the brightness down a bit. This set uses CRTs to get the picture; no lamps are involved...accordianman

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
