Hitachi lcd 50" model 50V500A - turn off & on

Comes on ok. after a few minutes turns itself off, if i do nothing turns itself off again - and this goes on till i turn off the power. for the few minutes it is on - pic & sound are fine.
Hitachi service says it is not the lamp as pic is good when it is on!
Sears service guy says - most likely is the lamp - lets try to replace it!

any suggestions?

Best advice I have is to price shop for lamp online using lamp or model number. Now it could be lamp or ballast or dmd causing this. But most common is lamp and you will need one sometime anyway. Very easy to change. Also probably a parts dist. in your area stocks it. Good luck.

My Hitachi 50V500A has a large area where the color is turning out to red. Is this a lamp or a complete light engine replacement job?


not the lamp. hitachi knowingly had a defect with the fan not allowing enough air to cool the lamp which has burned the red color lense resulting in the red on your screen. enjoy your new brick thanks to hitachi!

50 inch rear projection hitachi


Hi Roy
This problem can be a number of things. First I would say, check to see if Fan Exhaust on back is blocked. It must be atleast a 2 inch min. If this is ok then, There are a few parts inside you could change starting with I-901 and C-958. For more info you can visit ctechnicians.com
