Take off front cover, and look for lamp door. Remove door, and remove lamp. You will need a long phillips screwdriver. Any questions please ask.

HOW TO FIX A EMERSON 50 LCD TV THAT WON'T TURN ON AFTER LIGHTING HIT CLOSE TO HOUSE AND AFTER THAT TV STOPPED WORKING.


Hi Rmeadows,
Lightning can cause extensive damage to TV sets and sometimes leaves them unrepairable. Despite doing so much your set is still not working. I appreciate your DIY approach and if you really want to DIY, the remaining boards are Tcon and inverter. The decision to change a particular should have been with the help of a multimeter. Since you have to do without it, the only option is to replace the remaining boards one by one.
Good Luck.

Blue light flashing


Possibly the power board or the sustain board has died.
Power board failure does not stop the blue light from working as this is an LED on voltage side of power transformer. The set fails because it has detected a voltage difference in one o0f the other boards that controls the initial starup and convergence. Some transistors and capacitors are also possibly involved. Not a dIY unless you are skilled. Parts $300 labour ?
but about $400
If you are a DIY get a kit from this site, complete with step by step instructions This is an LCD rear projection set.The yellow blob may be from the drivers to the LCD display, dirt or object on the projection mechanism, stain on the mirrors or lamp; bad projection lamp - among others.If you are handy, get inside the set and see if you can observe any of the items mentioned above.

Have a green tint over 90% ot the center of the screen


I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.
