Question about Televison & Video
I have the Hitachi instructions for attempting this,
Understand---this model is prone to having a bad optical light engine--there are class action lawsuits in several states.
What happens is the heat from the lamp can damage the lens etc inside the engine. Usually there is a large red oval area in the middle of the screen.
Of all the ones I have done the reset on---it only cured the problem in a few of them. You can start out with a pink or red screen and after you do it you may see only the RED oval--if you do the engine is bad and currently is over 600 dollars wholesale--not counting major labor to replace it.
Let me know if you want the instructions and I will post them here.
