If the light engine goes out call Hitachi and they will supply the part for free but you will have to pay for the service of installation around $300

Don't waste your money. If it follows suit, the light engine will go out soon.

I have a Hatachi 50V500 just had the lamp and light engine replaced last month and still under extended warranty. I would sell with the stand for $800.00

For $350.00!!!!

Absolutely!!!

Just do not expect it to be a great picture for long but, you never know you may have a rare good one. For that price I would put it
in the garage and have something special to watch the games on. Even if it goes bad the lamp is almost worth that in some circles.

Try replacing the lamp first, If your lamp is over a year old. Next Clean the optical lens. This is kinda of involved just getting into the unit to clean.You might want to contact an authorized servicer for this.

the unit requires a replacment optic block to correct the problem your experiancing
if you are the original owner you may contact hitachi customer relations and they may opt to supply a remanufactured optic block and you would be responsible for the labor but still cheap enough and you get a good working set again

Hitachi won't replace


I had the same problem a red halo that eventually led to complete discoloration. I called Hitachi and they had their local rep come out and look, they said it would cost $400 to install $1500 new light engine. Then a couple of months ago, I read a post on this site (Varian - Feb. 14, 2008 - suggesting Hitachi Customer Relations at 800-654 7013 was providing the light engine without charge).

So, I called them again and was not able to persuade them to cover my Hitachi LCD projection (50V500). It appears Hitachi has a poor record with their Light Engine as well all of their new generation TV. They have since stopped selling the LCD projection, but they are into plasma and LCD TV and likewise do not seem to have a good track record - as I hear from other users.

I did the smart thing and switched over to a Sony XBR4 Bravia 52" LCD TV 1080p HD at a reduced price (Approximately $2800 from Amazon.com!). My Hitachi cost me about $ 3600 at a Circuit City Store. Therefore, no Hitachi products for me and not from Circuit City, since, Circuit City asked for $4000 for the same Sony TV, I bought from Amazon, which included delivery and installation. Circuit City would add another $80 for delivery.

HITACHI really sucks!!! Put these people out of business!

There is a service bulletin for this problem - you need to reintialize the memory settings in the service menu - I have a pdf file showing how to do this.

Turn off your set. ( wait for the light and the fan to shut down) push and hold the Input button on the panel, power it on with the power button on the tv, as soon as you see the service menu appear, let go of the input button. Scroll down to : LCD adjust, toggle blue button to the right, another screen will appear. Adjust the squares on the screen until the ghosts are gone. hit Exit twice::Ghosts are Busted!
