Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

The tv screen is 60% blue . . . . . .

The tv screen started to go blue on the left corner about a couple of months ago and now the blue has spread accros the screen like a plague! It has consumed 60 to 70 percent of my screen. Is there an inexpensive way for me to take care of this? Thanks.

    SIMILAR PROBLEM BUT MINE IS A RED CLOUD THAT STARTEDIN THE CENTER AND IS EXPANDING OUTWARDS. NOW CONSUMES ABOUT 60% OF THE SCREEN. IS MOSTLY VISBLE WHEN THERE IS NO OTHER COLORS ON THE SCREEN, I.E. WHEN THE SCENE IS FADING TO BLACK. IS ONLY SOMEWHAT VISIBLE WHEN THERE IS A FULL COLOR PICTURE ON THE SCREEN.

    We have the same problem. The screen first started out fine, then the blue spot grew on the left side... then it all bt disappeared and then returned, but, to our dismay, it returned with a vengeance on the right side and it spread through out. Not it's covering over 1/3 of the television.

    Me too! Is this a related light engine problem that people are experiencing with the "red cloud" in the middle of the screen? I just replaced the lamp, which I thought was the problem, but nope, the blue is still there. So definitely not the lamp. I don't know what to do?

    I also have this problem. I just replaced the lamp. Could it be a bad lamp?

My tv's edges are blue all the way around. How do I get to the diagnostics screen?

White fog "ring" around outer third of screen. Dark spots and a single white pinhole in picture as well.


If the model above is correct you are describing a bad optical light engine, about the most expensive part inside that set.

Hi andrew, its not a big problem.. Decent TV. but the pixels are DEAD. that means you have to recover them by fixing the LCD. this would cost you around £40-60 for a 32 inch TV. hope this helps!

Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes

Hitachi 50V500 blue spreading


The blue LCD panel in the light engine is going bad. Only solution is to replace the light engine. Hitachi was extending the warranty on many of these units. Better check with a local authorized shop. Those light engines are expensive and it is a major labor job.

Blue dots on LCD screen


You will most likely need to replace the panel. You will have to contact Sony and they will send a Factory Trained Technician to your home to replace it. Since you are not on Factory Warranty this repair will cost you. You may find it cheaper just to replace the television.

Blue color spread over the pictures


This sounds classic to a thermo problem where a part(s) are becoming thermo sensitive with aga and use. When the set is cold and then warmed up, the defective part(s) is changing characteristics.

Some components became thermo sensitive that are driving the display. Or an embeded component in the display itself became thermo sensitive. It is very possible that the fault is on the board that does the X - Y addressing or on the backplane electronics of the display screen itself.

Using the set with defective components is a bad idea. If the part(s) fail completely and go shorted or opened, other more costly damage can be done.

The service rep for the manufacture of your set is equiped and trained to be able to troubleshoot and service your set.

You will have to take the set in to have it serviced.

I had the same problem w/ the same TV about 6 months ago. You need a new optical engine. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Once that was replaced, the tv looks great.
