Question about Hitachi 42V710 42" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a square section in the middle of my TV that is yellowing. What is the cause?
Suggest you call Hitachi and complain. There is an issue with all projection LCD tvs (not just Hitachi) was that the light engine assembly did not have enough vents for cooling. This translates in a green or yellow blob that starts small and grows larger because the LCD screen frame starts to deform with the heat. Guess they did not test with young kids in the house and the tv on more than it is off :-). In March I managed to get Hitachi to pay for the part and I paid for the labor to get this fixed (out of warranty). The new light engine supposedly is better at cooling though I do see a faint 1/4 inch band of green at the bottom of the screen. Blackburn Electronics in Anderson IN has fixed many of these in the Indianapolis area.
