    i have this same problem. about a year ago was the first time i saw a difference. all of a sudden while i was watching tv, it went crazy and started giving me a weird light show. but it seemed like after me playing with the settings it got a lil better. But a couple days ago it happened again and its so much worse. there is nothing i can do to help it at all! The picture has a purple/red tint and there seemes to be a lot of yellow at times.Please help



    if anyone can help, my email is jasonwardmusic@yahoo.com

    Our Lamp went out now theres a Red Halo and the colors are messed up the repair man said its the panel i believe a circuit instead of a tube hr assures us thats the problem and that its worth us to repair since its not that old & cost $3400.

    I don't know if the picture color went red all of a sudden or over time because it was given to me, I need to know if this is worth repairing or not.

Our hitachi 50c20 is overheating and turning off. It also has a red tint on whole screen when playing. We replaced the bulb but still the same. It is located in a well ventilated area.


i dont know about the overheating problem, but as far as the red tint goes, it you go to the picture setting within the menu and reset it to default, it should take care of that.

Screen is bowed (top and bottom) Color has a green and purple tint?


Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

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.
