    I have the Hitachi 50V500. There is a red blob right in the middle of the screen while viewing and is very apparent when powered off for several seconds before completely off. I thought it may be the projection lamp and bought a new one. It is still there. I paid a considerable amount of money for the TV. What can I do?

Component inputs not working on hitachi ultrascan tv


There have been some resets for Hitachi sets for several years, from using a jumper wire to touch two terminals with set on to ones in hidden Tech menu. If one I did not know I would use the model number to Google several sites looking for a reset---one some years ago brand new and just delivered had two inputs with nothing and a third with no sound--reset cured it and lots of other sets have a hard reset putting all settings back to factory.

Get the model number and search and do not forget to look on the Hitachi site as well.

The picture keeps turning pink off and on lately...is it the bulb and can we replace it?


I have a suggestion: when it goes pink go to a black and white channel and examine the screen: if reddish you may be able to adjust the red screen control to correct this.

I can tell you how to do that and please let me know what you find before you rate this information.

A reddish cloudy swirl sweeps across part of my screen.


IF you are seeing a red or pink large oval area in the middle of the screen, I can tell you what the problem is.

It is not the lamp.

Let me know if you need more information--please confirm you have the red or pink oval.

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!


I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi knows about it. You need to contact Hitachis customer RELATIONS department (not regular customer service) at 800-654-7013 and tell Hitachi what the TV is doing and that you have a bad light engine. Initially, they will act they have not heard of the problem but they will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once you have the tech come out and they tell you that it's a bad light engine, call Hitachi back, at the 800 # I listed and tell them what the tech said. They will call the dealer directly and then Hitachi will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitach will cover the cost of the part (part cost around $1500)

Here's the kicker, if your TV is not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part but you will have to pay the install. We recently had this happen to us and our install was $400...worth it to us on a $3600 TV thats only 3 years old.

Please deal only with Hitachi customer relations and DO NOT let any dealer or store where you purchased the TV tell you that you will have to pay the $1500 for the part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are aware of it and they will send it out to the dealer your using and HITACHI will pay for the part...you only pay the install. Good Luck!
