Possibly you can go into the menu and do an auto adjust and this would correct the problem automatically. I own a 57 in and have had it for sometime...definitely.a good buy @ 300.00 since these are upwards of $1500 - 2000 +... I used to work for Hitachi and those bulbs have over 20,000 life hrs..

I get people all the time bringing rear-projection TV's in to my shop, that a friend of theirs gave to them. There is a reason why people give them a way (even better - sell them to their friends) cause these sets have many problems, are expensive to repair, and they want something better. Your money is better spent on something new. Just make sure you google the model number you intend to buy first with the words "repair" or "complaint" in the search, in order to not get one of the many new sets that are customer service nightmares.

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.

Blue haze spot-yellow tint


I have the same problem with blue haze that just spread out on model 55VS69A ,
tv is almost 2 years old. i called hitachi and they advised to call a local repair center to check the tv...they confirmed Optical Block (light engine ) replacement light engine cost $1400 and labour $400, so i called back hitachi and they said they will provide light engine and will have to pay labour!....this is not right paying out of pocket for a tv less than 2 years old....I am not sure if the issue will resurface again...more likely ....Hitachi is supposed to issue a recall or atleast like sony did to cover all cost for there defective TV's....I will NEVER buy hitach again.

Hitach SUCKS.

Hitachi 52 projection tv


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
