    same basic problem except the blue tint seems to match the 4:3 aspect and only started after the lamp was replaced just 3 months ago.

    have the same issue, replaced my bulb after it blew in August. For the last few weeks I've had a blue glow that seems to be overtaking the entire screen. Just sent Hitachi an e-mail. Will update with the response.

    I have a 50v720 that I bought at Video Only in Jan. 06. This TV cost us $2100 out the door with a 2 year extended warranty. After having the entire screen replaced, I had to send it back to the shop for evaluation and replacement of the video engine. a few short months after that 2 1/2 weeks with my TV in the shop the Lamp blew and the Tech came out to replace both the lamp and the balast. I have an intermittent sqealing noise over the signal block thru the audio curcuit now and the same Blue haze and a "burn in" memory effect on the screen which I don't understand because LCDRP doesn't even work the same way as an old CRT television and there is no Phosphorus Shadow Mask to hold a burn-in image! Anyway after the signal block problem Hitachi (actually the warranty contracter GE financial) sent me a check for the depreciated value of $999.00 stating that I could find a suitably comparable replacement for that cost at CC or Video Only. I Did not find either of the recommended models at that cost and essentially took that shot in the pocket. Now I'm saving my nickels and dimes to replace this piece of garbage with a Sony product.

I finally emailed Hitachi about the blue haze and since my televison is only 16 months old they agreed to pay for the part (they didn't say what part) and I will have to pay the service charge. The repairman is coming out on 2 Apr 08. I will post results after that.

Hitachi rear projection LCD with yellow blobs on screen


I have the same tv and the same problem, but my yellow is a cloud around the outside of the screen. My tv was recently moved, and a repair shop told me that sometimes in a move these tvs light engine takes a shock and causes a yellow "band" on the screen. I am hearing that these light engines are not cheap either. Hope this helps you.

Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes

Sony rear projection LCD pink haze/blue line


Optic engine. No doubt. Those encroaching lines are just going to get bigger and more annoying with every day.

Check with Sony to see if your set still falls under the natural or extended manufacturer's warrantly. Most optic blocks are warrantied for 2 years (3 years or more on some models).

Post your model # and we can tell you if it is covered by the manufacturer.

Blue Haze in middle of screen progressively getting larger


This one is easy. WHen this happened to me, I simply called GE extended warranty service up and bought an extended warranty. I waited 30 days and called them up with my problem. A repair man showed up a few days later with the 1200 dollar light engine and installed it and left. Then I called GE up and cancelled the warranty. Total cost?: 48 bucks

Blue Haze in middle of screen vertical


There is no solution with Hitachi products.

If you have read many of the posts, you would have known not to buy Hitachi Telivisions or like me avoid all Hitachi products. There help line is not very useful, they just blow you off. I have never had a worse experience with other manufacturers. Take Onkyo for instance, they had a problem with a chip in their THX receiver and it was a year later ... I called their help line they located a repair store about 40 miles from where I live (in Texas that is not very long) and got my receiver fixed and this was 8 years ago.

Also use Consumer Reports to check the frequency of repair record for the product you are going to buy. In Plasma - Panasonic is a safe brand, in LCD's Sony or Samsung have good repair records.

Research the product before you buy it, avoid walking into a store have the salesperson direct you to a product. And then you save money if you order it online. Amazon online is very good.
