You have a defective light engine and Hitachi will replace it and they will cover the part. Here's what you need to do. Call Hitachi's customer relations departement at 800-654-7013 and tell them that you have a defective light engine. They will act like they've not heard of this but they have. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once the dealer comes out and confirms that it's a bad light engine, call Hitachi back and they will send out a brand new light engine directly to the dealer and Hitahci will pay for the part (cost $1500). The dealer will call you to set up a day and time to come out and install.

If you're not still under warranty, you will have to pay for the install. Our install was $400 but others on this site have paid around $200. Please do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for this part and deal directly with Hitahci. They have not recalled this part but they are replacing it with a brand new one. You just pay the install. Please deal only with their customer relations department at the 800# I listed. Good Luck!

Can i connect a regular dvd player to a hitachi flatscreen hdtv?


Yes you can. Simply connect the appropriate color inputs.

If you use red green blue for video, and red white for audio you will get the best picture

If not stick to yellow for video and white red for audio

Just remember color that is on the back of dvd goes to same color on the input for the tv

How do I change my W2613 TV resolution to 1080i? I just bought this TV a few weeks ago and I want to be able to play my XBox360 in HD and when I connect all 6 wires (Red, White, Yellow & Green, Red,...


use just the red green and blue wires for the picture and NOT the yellow wire. That is why it is messed up.

XBOX games only play in 720, but it will still look great.

Westinghouse LCD TV - broad vertical green and blue lines


try to go to the factory reset and see if that helps. If not, you can then check your connection. if you use component (red, green and blue for video and red and white for audio), make sure all the color matches when you plug it in. if everything have been checked then you need to replace the main board and it should correct the problem.

Red,green and blue lines across screen


I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

Lines across screen


If the lines are slightly diagonal and in red, blue and green you have a problem in the ABL circuit. if the lines are only one color you may take the front grill cover offf and remove the panel. look fro the black box 2 inches square with 6 little controls on it. 3 are for focue 3 are for screen the middle on of the screen is the green adjustment the other 2 should be labled r and b respectivly. what ever the color of the line turn the control labeled screen and r b or g for that color ever so ligtly counter clock wise.

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi will replace the part. Here's what you need to do. Call Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them that you have a defective light engine. At first, they will act like they've not heard about this problem but they will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to have come out and take a look. Once the tech comes out and confirms that it's a defective light engine, call Hitachi back at the same 800# and they will send a brand new light engine directly to the dealer and Hitachi will pay for it ($1500).

Here's the deal, if you're under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. If you're not under warranty they will cover the expensive part but not the install. Our install was $400 but other on this site have paid around $200. Please do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for this part. Hitachi has not recalled the part but they are replacing it with a brand new light engine for free. Also, deal only with Hitachi's customer realtions and not regular customer service. Good Luck!

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi is aware of it. Here's what you need to do...recently went through this. Call Hitachis customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them you have a defective light engine. At first, they will act like they've not heard of this problem but they are all too familiar with it. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once the tech comes out and confirms the problem, call Hitachi back at the 800 # I listed and they will call and confirm with the dealer that you have a bad light engine. They will send a brand new light engine to the dealer (Hitachi will cover the cost $1500) and the dealer will call you to come out and install.

Here's the kicker, if you're not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the expensive part but you will have to pay the install. Our install was $400 but others on this site have paid around $200. If you're still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and install.

Please do not let any dealer tell you that you have to pay for this part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it to you for free...you just pay the install. Also, deal only with their customer relations at the 800# I listed.Good Luck:)
