This model and the 60V500 made the same year are both prone to damage from the lamp to the "optical light engine" and both are now part of several class action lawsuits concerning both models.

At first the engine was about 1100 dollars exchange and then dropped to 225 exchange as a lot of them failed in the first two years---current price is something over 600 and only available rebuilt----the more hours the set is used the more likely the optics in the engine will be damaged by heat.

Clearly, the set is not worth a 600 dollar part plus major labor to replace.

I do not like to give bad news but this is what is wrong, consider getting involved in one of the class action suits, sooner or later Hitachi will have to settle this or the courts will.

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team at 1-239-768-7547 and ask for the recall issue Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues previously. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Bright blue patch in center of screen.


The optical block is going bad. Contact Sony support and have your model and serial numbers handy. Sony sometimes warranties these even after the 1yr factory warranty.

Blue patches on screen - samsung plasma


I'm afraid to say this is probably a problem in the prism. The prism has 3LCDs on it, one for red, green and blue. You can get blue patches if one starts to burn out. If it this, it is not an easy or cheap fix.
Could I just confirm that this is a rear projection TV?? (Its in that catogory)

Replace the video board, if you can find one. Letting it cool down will not help any.

Blue patch on left side of screen


I had the same problem with my Hitachi PJTX100. I discovered that there was considerable dust build-up inside the unit, causing insufficient venting of heat which then damaged the color prism/filter. It was close enough in time to the warranty for Hitachi to cover parts replacement (approximately $1,600). Since the repair, the blue patch is gone. I also regularly vacuum not only the outer cover but also the inner air filter that easily snaps on and off.
