The CRTs for this model are no longer available. Make sure that the CRT is the problem. If so, the set is not fixable unless you can find a servicer that has a CRT from old stock.

Hitachi 50vs810. Blinking Temp light. No picture No sound.

Spoke to a local repair shop. The tech told me that there is a wiring harness that has four fans on it. One of the four fans has failed. The complete harness needs to be replaced. There is another risk. Depending on the state of the TV when the fan failed, it might have cost you a bulb as well. The tech quoted me $250 to $300 to repair the television. Add about $120 more for a bulb.

It looks like the red is not converging on my Hitachi 60V500A LCD Rear Projection Television. I'm thinking that I need a new Lamp Engine. Does that seem correct?

Good Luck with this. We have complained about a darkening screen we were told to replace the lamp. We did so for $100. After the problem was only getting worse, they said it was because I did not purchase a "Hitachi" bulb. They stated they knew their's were more expensive ($300) but should solve the problem. Well, we didn't bite. It became clear that we no longer could see blues, pinks, yellow, and most browns. A call back to customer service stating these problems ended with us learning we needed to replace a color engine to the tune of $850-$1200. We have only had the tv for about 4 years. Needless to say we bought a new Samsung Plasma for a little more than the replacement part. Hitachi products, never again.

Tv bulb

You set a Multimeter to read impedance (ohms) then put the two sensors of the Multimeter on the lamp contacts, if it reads infinite impedance, then lamp has blown.
