    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.

Red, green and blue colors don't match up on screen.

Please replace convergence out ICs (usually two) in TV.
If it is Hitachi 43UWX10B then its convergence out ICs are available in Part Store

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 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 60 in. 60V715 Yellow Haze

I would first check and see if any software updates are out on this set, you can call Hitachi, if not that then it could be the engine assemble having problems.
