Sounds like a convergence problem. First, try using your set's user convergence mode.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

The left side of the screen is blueish?


The blue or yellow haze problem in this projector is because of two factors. 1) Dust buildup inside the optics and 2) Fading colour filters used in the internal optical process.

Inside the projector the white light from the lamp is split into three distinct colours of red, green and blue. Each colour illuminates their own monochrome LCD. Those LCDs are mounted on a prism that combines the separate images and displays the result you see via the lens.

The optical process to split the light up inside the projector is fairly complex and involves many light filters and mirrors to direct the light to the appropriate lcds. Those filters and lenses accumulate dust and also fade over time due to heat and other environmental factors.

I know that sharp sells replacement filters at $100 a piece. I do not know if Hitachi sells replacements.

To remove the dust and change filters you have to take apart the projector in a fairly complex way. I do not suggest that the average user do this. Good luck!

Seeing a blue "haze" on presentations, and when on blank screen


On the "Option" menu, try selecting "Service" and the "Factory Reset". This may help. If not, you will have to use the menus to manually adjust the level of blue in the projectin. Go here for the manual for your Hitachi and you will find instructions:

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.

Blue patch on left side of screen


I had the same problem with my Hitachi PJTX100. I discovered that there was considerable dust build-up inside the unit, causing insufficient venting of heat which then damaged the color prism/filter. It was close enough in time to the warranty for Hitachi to cover parts replacement (approximately $1,600). Since the repair, the blue patch is gone. I also regularly vacuum not only the outer cover but also the inner air filter that easily snaps on and off.
