Question about Hitachi 42HDT52 42 in. Plasma HDTV
SOURCE: Hitachi won't replace
I had the same problem a red halo that eventually led to complete discoloration. I called Hitachi and they had their local rep come out and look, they said it would cost $400 to install $1500 new light engine. Then a couple of months ago, I read a post on this site (Varian - Feb. 14, 2008 - suggesting Hitachi Customer Relations at 800-654 7013 was providing the light engine without charge).
So, I called them again and was not able to persuade them to cover my Hitachi LCD projection (50V500). It appears Hitachi has a poor record with their Light Engine as well all of their new generation TV. They have since stopped selling the LCD projection, but they are into plasma and LCD TV and likewise do not seem to have a good track record - as I hear from other users.
I did the smart thing and switched over to a Sony XBR4 Bravia 52" LCD TV 1080p HD at a reduced price (Approximately $2800 from Amazon.com!). My Hitachi cost me about $ 3600 at a Circuit City Store. Therefore, no Hitachi products for me and not from Circuit City, since, Circuit City asked for $4000 for the same Sony TV, I bought from Amazon, which included delivery and installation. Circuit City would add another $80 for delivery.
HITACHI really sucks!!! Put these people out of business!

I would strongly suggest that you see what kind of a tech you have asking for the replacement... My industry is flooded with too many have-solder-gun will travel wany-to-be techs. And Hitachi is VERY particular who they do business with... If they even suspect that the tech who asked about the part is not capable of installing it properly that may be the problem....
I do know that that program is still ongoing. We did one as recently 7/20 and had no problems getting the part...
Don't really think Hitachi is trying to single you out - - so you might check that out..

We have used the flat ribbon cables from a computer center in the past. Take the old one to a shop and see if they can accommodate you. Maybe they can modify one that will work. Let me know.
