My 59" Hitachi Rear-Projection TV


You have a bad light engine (optical block). This is the most expensive part of the TV. Do a search with the model number on Google or Ebay and even type the words "light engine" in your search. You can then find the price of the part. You can find a service manual by typing in the model number followed by "service manual". This will show disassembly instructions.

Hi,

Sorry no French language, I am a redneck from Alberta.

Your "cercle rouge" sounds like Light Engine Failure. This page shows the symptoms. Hitachi Light Engine Fault Gallery.

There is a red streak in the left corner of my TV. The streak is angled and it blurs a small portion of the picture.


This is a failure of the light engine in your television. I have replaced many due to this and other color lines that have appeared on these models. The light engine for a 60V500 is UX22203DR and runs around $350.00 but needs to be replaced by a technician as it requires a tear down of the set to replace it. So looking at cost of parts and labor you are probably best to replace the TV. At tigerdirect.com they are selling a 60 inch Mitsubishi 1080p DLP for $799.00 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6277535&CatId=1830

I have a HITACHI 60in. LCD rear projection tv (model 60v500). I'm getting 2 large oblong red areas in the center of the picture. Is this an adjustment?


Hi,it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.This is how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo So basically the 3 Lcd chips that create the colors and image is going bad and thats why you get that color discoloration.Contact Hitachi or look for your light engine online.God bless you and your house!

the more the tv remains on the picture gets out of focus mainly in the midle of screen. Sure sounds like tv needs some light engine repair or replacement.

LIGHT ENGINE FOR THE HITACHI 60V500


Hitachi WILL replace the part... My tv is over 4 years old and the light engine went bad. They sent me a new light engine free of charge two weeks ago and now it is PERFECT! When you call them make sure to ask for their superior if you get denied by someone.
