SOURCE: There is a red spot and distortion in the middle

I do not have good news for you---this model is prone to the optical light engine going bad---usually a red oval area in the middle of the screen----I have also read that there are now several class action lawsuits related to this problem in this set. You can Google the model number and you will set what I am talking about.

I have replaced several light engines(called an optical engine) in this model--both the 50V500 and the 60V500 have this problem.

The last time I checked the optical engine wholesaled for about 600 dollars and is major labor to replace--I had someone else here ask me about this set---He was in Canada and the first time he called Hitachi he was told they were not aware of any problem--after posting here with me he called them back and someone admitted they knew about this but had been told not to say anything or admit any problem---thousands of these sets all have the same problem.

Clearly the set is not worth a 600 dollar part plus labor---considering the cost of new sets, but the only other option you have is to try to connect with one of the several class action lawsuits---I found them by typing the model number and lawsuit after it on Google.

I know I am not giving you good news but I know this set.

THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM IN BOTH THE 50V500 AND 60V500---IT IS A BAD OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE---MAJOR PART---WHOLESALES FOR OVER 600 DOLLARS!

IF YOU HAVE AN EXTENDED WARRANTY---GET IT IN FOR REPAIR!

There are already several class action lawsuits in several states concerning this problem in this model.

What happens is the lamp the set uses damages lens etc inside the light engine--the engines are now being sold on an exchange basis and are all rebuilt units---that are supposed to not have the same kind of problem as the early ones.

Hitachi rear projection LCD with yellow blobs on screen


I have the same tv and the same problem, but my yellow is a cloud around the outside of the screen. My tv was recently moved, and a repair shop told me that sometimes in a move these tvs light engine takes a shock and causes a yellow "band" on the screen. I am hearing that these light engines are not cheap either. Hope this helps you.

Clean the lenses. This involves taking off the screen, which often involves removing every front panel on the set from the bottom up. Have somewhere to rest your screen, like an ottoman.
