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 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!

It will be best for you to refer this site for more details. It has defective screenshots to plasma displays. You can compare them to that or your TVs' and make sure about the fault.
Pull up previous posts by its left sidebar, or type in the brand name and model number to of your set, to its search box, and press 'Enter' or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide option.

47regza has a pink screen says no video signal

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Look for loose contacts of jacks, sockets and cables.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

I turned it on today and is showing a full pink screen. I can barely recognize the images behind the pink colors. Any ideas? It is gone?

This problem could possibly be caused by a faulty cable or connection. Switch off computer and monitor/TV. Remove the cable from both the computer and the monitor, then replace it on both sides, making sure that it is firmly connected. Switch on again. If the screnn is stil pink, check the settings - refer to user manual for instructions.
