Blue spot like many people, what started as a small blue spot has turned into a larger one and new blue areas are appearing daily. We just replaced the lamp and this did not fix the problem.

You have a defective light engine and you do not have to be under warranty for Hitachi to replace this part. We just went through this and here's what you need to do. Call Hitachi's customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them that you have a defective light engine. They will act like they've never heard of this problem but they have. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area to call. Once a tech comes out and confirms that it's the light engine, call Hitachi back and they will send a brand new light engine to the dealer and Hitachi will cover the cost of the part (cost $1500).

Here is the deal, if you're under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and the install. If you're not under warranty, all you pay is the install. Our install cost $400. Others on this site have paid $200. Do not let anyone tell you that you have to pay for the light engine part...you do not. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it for free. Also, deal only with Hitachi customer realations number that I listed. Good Luck

If you've done an I2c reset then your problem is most likely the light engine. Actually the lcd panel inside the engine but the procedure is still the same - replacement of the LE..

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen


I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

I just replaced the lamp in my Sony 42' HDTV and I still have blue dots everywhere. What's the problem?


The Problem is your Optical Engine. The lense inside the Optics over time heats up and spots appear. In your case its the the blue lens inside the optical engine.

It started out small but it has gotten larger. A


Dead Pixels. High definition flat screen screens are made in layers. One part is short circuiting causing the pixels ti die. If I were you I would get a new one at a sale or something ASAP because this will just keep happening until it is broke.

TV turns off by itself


Check the interlock switch on the rear lamp cover. Sounds like the cover might not be seating completely, allowing this safety switch to shut the TV off. When you remove the cover, it's just to the left of the big black plastic ventilation guide for the lamp, and it's a little tiny blue lever that moves up and down. Make sure the wires going to this switch are OK (not pulled out or 'hanging by a thread').

I have a Panasonic model # PT-44LCX65 TV and have just replaced the lamp, as it was time to do so. A pink dot, that appeared before the old lamp needed replaced, remains on the picture. How is this fixed?


There are a few other threads on this board with the same issue, some say green spots, some say red spots, in my case it was blue/purple spots, but the solution is the same for all of them. Contact Panasonic and tell them that you read online that they are offering a warranty repair for this known "fuzzy spots" issue. They will send out a local repairman who will perform an EEPROM update to one of the computer chips inside of your TV, and viola good as new.
That is what others on this site suggested to me, and I did it and got all repairs covered under warranty by Panasonic even though my TV is 2+ out of the warranty period.
Good luck!

Lamp Replacement Problems for Hitachi 50V500A


I'll tell you what I tran into and how it got resolved...
I experienced the same problem , with the blinking light...
Purchased a replacement lamp..
It didn't work(After market Universal supposably)..
Well..Come to find out.The Replacement lamp's housing looks similar, but the connecters that come out the back of the housing weren't quite long enough to trigger the microbe that activates the lamp in the Television.
Luckily I had the original lamp and it's housing that came with the television..
Took the bulb out of the new replacement lamp
Placed it in the original housing , and BINGO..It worked and is still working...
