Hello Jeff,

If the blotches and dots change depending upon source like DVD, air, and so forth (actually depending on video format 720, 1080, etc), then it is likely a driver issue that controls the display. If the artifacts are there all the time, then you may be looking at the panel itself.

if within warranty, then start with Hitachi for repairs. If out of warranty, a local electronics retailers should be able to direct you to a service center that can repair it for you. Otherwise, a rent-to-own outfit may be able to fix it in house and you pay the store directly.

I have a hitachi 50vs69a with 2 yellow spots in the middle of the t.v when powerd on.....black when off. these spots almost resemble states...there is also blue splotches in the middle of these spots. any...


Yes, if the spots are round or teardrop it may be burnt picture tubes.

Easy to confirm this by covering lens of tubes one at a time with set on and see which removes the blotches.

What happened in a lot of these sets is the set arcs and burns a black dot dead center in one or all three of the screens of the picture tubes used--fatal case and permanent.

I have blue dots on the screen. I cleaned the glass on the projection bulb and the prizm but still have blue dots.


Your tv is an LCD projection one - in which the image is generated by 3 small LCD screens. The blue dots are pixels from the blue LCD that are dead - always fully open.The only fix is to replace the LCD panel and that is going to cost you around $300.

Blue dots on screen. what is it and can it be fixed? a new bulb was recently installed.


Yes,it is repairable.Blue dots on screen is sign of LCD failure at optical block assembly. There are three LCD on the optical assembly RED,GREEN and BLUE. Blue LCD failure causes blue dots on screen. Repair should be done by replacing blue LCD. Note! LCD replacement needs Extra care and precise tools such as oscilloscope and color pattern generator , for the color alignment after replacing LCD. But if you can afford, replacing the optical block is better,

Little blue dots on screen and large blue haze in upper left corn


Sounds like the light engine is going bad...that's why they stopped making these rear projection sets using LCD's. Costs almost as much as a new set! But get a second opinion before trashing it.

Blue tints w/ tini blue dots


if you see blue pixel type groups of squares or dots you may have a burnt light engine and this is common in many LCD rear projection sets; a blue screen may mean the engine became burnt--LCD rear projection sets of this kind have an optical enginge--with red,green,blue prizims--sometimes they get burned by the lamp---a photo would tell me or most techs what the problem is---the cost of a replacement engine is very expensive--some models with this problem are covered by Sony even if the set is no longer in warrant

Blue dots center and yellow stain right hand corner on 60'' sonytv


Yes, I do. It needs a new light engine. Very costly repair. However, Sony has extended the warranty on many of these LED projector sets. You need to call a local Sony authorized service center and see if your model is covered. Otherwise this repair could run over a thousand bucks.

This is probably the polarizing filter. It will need to be replaced. It should not cost very much to fix.
