Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I purchased my Hitachi 50V500A Ultra-vision less than two years ago. Recently a blue ghost type cloud or blob began to appear on the top left corner of the screen. This cloud changes in shape very slowly after hours of use. This is a T.V. that is practically new and cost me around $2,000.00 and should not be happening. Does this have some type of simple solution? I have the same issue with the blue blob. The longer the t.v. is on, the larger the blob gets. What needs to be done?
I'm not very familiar with T.V's but it might be a problem with the colour gun or just the pixels.
The easiest and best thing would be to call the place where you bought it, you should still have warranty
and they should fix it.
Well thats all i got for advice.

You have a defective light engine and you do not have to be under warranty for Hitachi to replace this part. We just went through this and 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. They will act like they've never heard of this problem but they have. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once a tech comes out and confirms that it's the light engine, call Hitachi back and they will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitachi will cover the cost of the part (cost $1500).
Here is the deal, if you're under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. If you're not under warranty, all you pay is the install. Our install cost $400. Others on this site have paid $200. Do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for the light engine part...you do not. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it for free. Also, deal only with Hitachi customer realations number that I listed. Good Luck!
