55VS69 is a LCD rear projection set---if you have blue or some other color discoloration in some part of the picture most likely you have a damaged optical light engine.

This model used two different ones--It is an expensive part as one wholesales for about 550 and the other about 600 not counting major labor to replace.

If you have an extended warranty--get it in and fixed.

The reason this happens in some sets is the Lamp used for the light source creates a lot of heat and can damage the lens/baffles inside the sealed light engine.

Blue is the most common as that part of the engine is usually closest to the lamp.

The set shines the light from the lamp into the engine and signal etc is injected and at the top of the engine is a 3 inch lens that projects the picture into a mirror which puts it on the screen.

Some of Hitachi's earlier sets are now involved in class action lawsuits as they had a red oval in the middle of the screen--red was first in those models--some Sony and other sets have had the same problems.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help. I know I am not giving you good news but based on your description I think it is your problem.

When the screen goes dark there is a blue halo with rays radiating out from it.


this is likely caused by a misaligned deflection coil on the blue CRT or in the blue deflection amplifier circuit or a defective deflection coil assembly, you may be viewing a inductor ring, posibly due to arking internal to the coil these are the most likely faults

My Hitachi LCD rear projection TV has blue color in left corner


It is most likely the tube going out. Find some one to replace the tube if the TV is fairly new other wise it is going to be a trend. One tube now and another.. and so on. Ride it out as long as you can then go for an upgrade

White halo on picture


Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
