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?

THE LAMP CAN ONLY AFFECT BRIGHTNESS NOT ANYTHING WITH VIDEO DISTORTION. THE BLUE DISTORTION WILL BE A OPTICAL ENGINE DEFECT AND MOST LIKELY NON-ECONOMICAL TO REPAIR.

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.
