Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Blue haze on screen

I have a Hitachi 50V500. There is a blue haze that has appeared. After I moved a speaker it lightened up. I heared about "degouse" but I can not find anything of that sort in the menu. Is this something that might fix my issue or is it more in depth?

Afraid not, that TV doesn't have CRT's. You can not degauss it. The speaker should not have had any affect on it either again because it does not have CRT's (picture tubes). This is a bad optical engine and will be expensive to repair. At most shops probably $600-700 with part and labor. It is very common on that model. Sorry for the bad news.

The blue LCD panel in the light engine is going bad. Only solution is to replace the light engine. Hitachi was extending the warranty on many of these units. Better check with a local authorized shop. Those light engines are expensive and it is a major labor job.

Blue Haze in middle of screen vertical


There is no solution with Hitachi products.

If you have read many of the posts, you would have known not to buy Hitachi Telivisions or like me avoid all Hitachi products. There help line is not very useful, they just blow you off. I have never had a worse experience with other manufacturers. Take Onkyo for instance, they had a problem with a chip in their THX receiver and it was a year later ... I called their help line they located a repair store about 40 miles from where I live (in Texas that is not very long) and got my receiver fixed and this was 8 years ago.

Also use Consumer Reports to check the frequency of repair record for the product you are going to buy. In Plasma - Panasonic is a safe brand, in LCD's Sony or Samsung have good repair records.

Research the product before you buy it, avoid walking into a store have the salesperson direct you to a product. And then you save money if you order it online. Amazon online is very good.

Blue haze on hitachi 51" tv


I finally emailed Hitachi about the blue haze and since my televison is only 16 months old they agreed to pay for the part (they didn't say what part) and I will have to pay the service charge. The repairman is coming out on 2 Apr 08. I will post results after that.
