Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Fuzzy image in center of screen

My 50V500 has developed a bit of a "fuzzy" spot in the middle of the screen. Some images (such as when playing video games) in the very center of the screen are a bit fuzzy. It seems to be okay when watching normal TV, however. Is this perhaps the start of something bad?

Our Phillips flat screen TV picture is split down the middle vertically. One side shows a mirror image of the other side, and then sometimes one side is a lighter shade than the other, when it is full...


This may be due to a faulty Timing Control board (TCON board). I had a similar problem with my Samsung LCD TV picture being split vertically down the middle. The image on both halves appeared fuzzy and in reverse (mirror) including the menus. I replaced the TCON board and the problem was resolved.

There is a blue image/dots in the middle of the screen. Can this be repaired. I think this was created by hooking up a Sony Playstation to the TV.


Something like that shouldn't be caused by just hooking up a playstation. However, leaving a certain picture on the screen could cause burn-in (it's rare on newer TVs though, but it definitely happened on mine).

I have a DX-L26-10A that has problem with the A/V inputs. The picture is fuzzy. All the other inputs on the TV have a good picture. Both A/V1 and A/V2 are fuzzy.


AV1 and AV2 are Composite signals. What this means is that the Image signal and the Image color are combined into a single feed... or a composite or signal and color. Other than using CH3 from the cable box, this is the poorest performer in regards to signal quality. Additionally, the signal only has 480 lines of resolution and your TV has 720.

What all this means is that 480 lines of poor image quality are being blown up (think magnified) to fill 720 lines of resolution on the screen. What you end up with is a blurry image when compared to other inputs (ie: HDMI, COMPOSITE). The Dynex TV does not have some of the more advanced video processing of other manufactures. It will perform the image doubling, a bit of filtering, but not much more.

I suspect you TV is fine. A transition to an HD display can be shocking to some. After all, the VCR looked better on the old analog TV (not a joke, it did).


I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Images on screen are very red. Tried adjusting everything in the menu but still every thing is like glowing red.


Color balance is labeled "Tint"
Color amount is labeled "Color"

Both are in the "picture" adjustments menu.

Either your tint is swung too far to red, or the color setting is wide open making normally pink faces look sunburned...likely it's a combination of the two; Too much red, and a bit too much color.

Going back to the "default factory setting" in "setup" will also drop all settings to center.

There is a red spot and distortion in the middle of the screen. I changed the lamp but it did not help (hitachi 50v500) LCD rear projection TV


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.


If this information has been helpful for you, please take a minute to give me a vote here--I do this here for free.
