If this has only started to leak recently, get an estimate from a local servicer for a coolant replacement for that tube. The coolant is corrosive and needs to be cleanedup ASAP from any circuit board that it has touched before there is damage. This is NOT a DIY repair. Expect a repair cost in the $300 range for parts and labor. If the set had a good picture prior to this, it may be worth the repair. This is your call. Do not delay however, as any delay will increase the likelyhood that there will be more damage that needs repair.

Green bulb-or lamp on ultravision hitachi 57uwx20b does not work how much to replace?


On a projection television you will have to replace all three(red,blue,green) projection guns in a matched set, the reason is if you replace just the green gun, your picture will be over saturated with green light making your picture look green,because the new gun will be alot brighter than the red and blue guns.
With that said, repair will cost approx.$400+, I've heard up to$600. Good luck !

Rear projection HD Hitachi Ultravision always has greenish tint


This is what you're going to do, Turn on the Tv and go to the service manual, if the green tint is still there, you have a defective dmd board, but if it's no there, then you have an issue with your video board

Hitachi has had problems with their light engines. Very expensive. Contact Hitachi as they may give you consideration even if this is out of warranty.

Check IC601, C603 for leakage, I601 and vertical pulse detector QN05

for poor convergence check RK42 for open circuit.

Hitachi ultravision 60" LCD with red glow in center


I emailed Hitachi and they sent a new light engine to my local electronics store that they do business with. All I had to pay for was the installation which was today. I did not have to pay for the part or shipping. My tv is just like new again and the red glow is gone. I did not realize how bad it had gotten. Do not call the regular customer service because they cannot or do not want to help.

Picture is yellow and green


Your missing the red drive on the set. Its most likly the picture tube. Its a possibility that the red drive circuit could be not working so the best thing to do is take off the gree picture tube socket and put the green board on the red tube. Of course do all this when the set is unplugged. if you have no tv experience. its not a good idea to be messing around inside of these sets.

Hitachi 53" Projection TV (Ultravision)


WoW a 10 year old Hitachi TV. I was authorized for these sets. The problem could be one or a combination of many problems. These sets have the stand up type regulator PCBs that went bad all the time! Also could have a Power regulator IC defect. A sweep power supply problem . The flyback did go bad once in a while on these sets. If the set got a power surge, thers like 5 IC's that pop and 12 Diodes that short along with the display IC. If your not a tech You shouldnt attempt to experiment with the set yourself, so It probably wouldnt pay to fix this set If you have to pay a tech to work on it? It all depense on how good the CRT's Are. If you can get a servicer to diagnoise it at a decent price and check the condition of the tubes, Maybe it would be worth investing some money into this set, as these are or were very very good TV's. The balls in your court now. Good Luck
