I would suspect more likely a problem with the power supply, if you have already tried to set the brightness down a bit. This set uses CRTs to get the picture; no lamps are involved...accordianman

There is yellow blotches on the screen what could be the cause and how can i fix it.

This is caused by a defective Light engine. The LCDs get contaminated from the heat of the lamp over a period of time causing discoloraton of the picture. The only way to repair this is to replace the light engine assembly, you might be able to purchase one at the following site,

Color is red to yellow. New bulb put in

A LAMP will not cause this problem. Do you have a reddish oval in the middle of the screen on a black and white program?

This model is prone to bad optical light engines (50V500) and there are several class action lawsuits pending right now.

Any discoloration usually means a burnt light engine--give me a better idea what the screen looks like and I will assist you for free.

I have yellow blur in the middle of my screen what could it be? i have a hitachi 50v715 i moved it from one house to another and turned on like that

You have a bad light engine. Contact hitachi(customer service) and let them kown what the symptom is. They know that there is a problem with these light engines. Let them know that you have seen on the net, that there are alot of complaints with this kind of problem. Hopefully they will give you the light engine and you will have to pay for a service call. The reason I know this is they replaced mine and I had to pay $300 for the service call. Keep complaining until they do something for you.The light engine is about $500 if you have to buy one. Hope this is helpful.

Hitachi 50v715 screen is yellow in the middle while the outer edges of the screen show white

The Optical Engine needs to be replaced. Due to the cost of the repair, I recommend you to call Hitachi at 1800-HITACHI to see if they could help with repairs and also refer a Service Facility to you to confirm the symptom.
I hope this helps,

Yellow hue circle in middle of screen. after leaving tv on all night

spherical or oval shaped light starting in the center of your picture is an indication of an led backlit tv.. probably a hitachi. solution, replace light no garuntees not with led backlit sets.. was bad idea to begin with. when the leds start going they start at the center and branch out.

I changed the LCD lamp, but there is still a yellow haze.

The yellow haze is the result of the blue polarizer burnt-in, you will find it sitting in front of the dlp chip.

This sounds like your light engine is going out. NOT GOOD! It all depends when you bought your set and if its under warranty. I had the same thing with mine bought is 2004, light engine died in 12/08 and was out of warranty. Talked to the rep. said they knew about the problem. They replaced my light engine for free but I had to have a authorized dealer install it . I had to pay for the labor $300, Now I've got another problem with it shutting down and back on.(That's another story.) I would call Hitachi and let them know that you know they have problems with this. Keep trying they may replace your to. To buy one out right is $400 to $500 plus labor, some folks have paid $800 to $1400 , That's a shame. Hope this is helpful. GOOD LUCK!!
