Bad light engine I think

I not only have the red hue but I also have little blue dots within the red hue...I also have on the left upper screen yellow line that look like someone made them with an etch a sketch, in the bottom right corner I have the same etch a sketch problem but the color is purple....is all of this caused by the light engine?

I had the same sort of idea..bad color engine.Hitachi paid for upgraded replacement 'cause they had had so many similar problems with this model. My warrenty had expired so they did save me about $1200 but I was stuck with the labour cost approx $300...

Find the settings menu in the TV. It sounds like you turned the green off completely. You can usually set the hues and colors and adjust for your preference or for lighting and such. Hope that helps.

White has turned pinkish


sounds like the linear adjustment is out of whack.....most projection type tvs, projection, lcd, plasma, have to be correctly aligned so that the color grids overlap each other to properly display the correct hue being created. you'd need the service code to re-adjust it, or have it serviced. also possible that one of the color grids is bad, but if you have all three (red,blue,green) colors showing on the entire screen area i would doubt it

KDF-60XS955 Blue dots all over screen. Lower left corner of screen has a small blue cone shape. Will a new bulb fix this? If yes how do I replace the bulb?


It is problem of light engine (optical block) in TV and Lamp replacement does not solve it.
TV needs replacement of light engine, that is costly part.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black


This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.

Blue half moon shadow on top of screen


We had this same problem with our 60+ inch Hitachi. Except our tv had a red hue in the center of the tv before we replaced the bulb and then the blue hue joined the red one after the replacement. It ended up that our light engine was defective (which is an extremely common problem in Hitachi tvs). You should read through some of the forums on here to see if you can find your solution exactly (that is how I figured out my problem was our light engine). You might have the light engine problem also, but I am not sure since you don't have a red hue. Hitachi pays for the replacement light engine part (worth $1200). I just finished the process and now my tv is like new. If you want me to go more in-depth with the light engine repair process let me know.

Red Dots


You can get rid of the red dots by adjusting the V-scan voltage down, it's on the panel sticker inside the unit, you can find the test point on the DC to DC pcb, and the adjustment pot is on the same board, lower it as you watch the screen and only lower it enough to rid the screen of the dots
