My Hitachi 50 inch model 50v500a needs a light engine... this is the 2nd time I need a new one... is this a problem with this model that happens a lot... will Hitachi send me a new light engine on their...

If you Google the model number with the word problem after it you will see it is very common for this and the 60V500 made the same year.

There are currently several class action lawsuits concerning this and the engine wholesales for about 600 exchange currently. I replaced nearly 20 of them in sets when they were less than 3 years old--extended warranty.

At one point the cost was 1100 and then when so many started failing they dropped it to 225 exchange/wholesale---but that ended a few years ago.

Hitachi (several clients here and locally have told me this) if called will at first deny knowing anything about this problem--but they know and have known for years.

Best suggestion if you are not under a extended warranty---get involved in one of the class action lawsuits----sooner or later Hitachi will have to either replace set for free or pay.

Sorry to give you bad news but if it told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

$4000 dollar TV, bought in May 2004 and picture sucks and is yellow. Needs a lamp replacemant only? Color wheel as well?

Ok, if it is 50v500 I suggest you do something.

Google the model number with the word troubles after it.
Google the model number with "class action lawsuit" after it.

This set is well known (also the 60V500 which is the same set but larger).

Optical light engine gets burnt from heat from the lamp used--Hitachi will tell you they "know nothing about this" but the lawsuits are moving forward.

At one point they were selling the engines for 1100 exchange, then started rebuilding them and when so many were failing dropped the price to about 225 exchange----last I heard the engine is over 600 not counting major labor to replace--the new engines are not supposed "to have this problem" and I have over the last few years replaced about 20 of them---most under extended warranty from people who were sharp enough to get a extended warranty.

I am sorry to give you bad news but it can be nothing other than the engine.

If this information told you something you did not know, rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Join the class action lawsuits!

There is a service bulletin for this problem - you need to reintialize the memory settings in the service menu - I have a pdf file showing how to do this.
