LIGHT ENGINE FOR THE HITACHI 60V500

Hi, my Hitachi has just been diagnosed with lighting engine failure. The price is unbelievable. Will Hitachi replace this part on a 5 year old rear projection.

    My Hitachi 60v500 is 3 years old. 8 months ago the light engine went bad. I called Hitachi and was told it was out of warranty and they would do nothing to help in the cost. I have since waited 4 months for a replacement part that is already paid for. I will never buy another Hitachi product not only because they would not help when the warranty had just expired but I was also treated very rudely on the phone and I still am waiting for my part. What a rip off for a 3500.00 set.

Hitachi WILL replace the part... My tv is over 4 years old and the light engine went bad. They sent me a new light engine free of charge two weeks ago and now it is PERFECT! When you call them make sure to ask for their superior if you get denied by someone.

My 59" Hitachi Rear-Projection TV


You have a bad light engine (optical block). This is the most expensive part of the TV. Do a search with the model number on Google or Ebay and even type the words "light engine" in your search. You can then find the price of the part. You can find a service manual by typing in the model number followed by "service manual". This will show disassembly instructions.

A have a black triangle looking spot on the bottom left hand of my tv, what could it be?


Hi,

Image distortion is most likely caused by Light Engine Failure. This page shows the most common Hitachi Light Engine Faults.

The only fix is to replace the Light Engine. Part# is UX22203 , cost in Canada from the Manufacturer's supply chain is more than $500. The part is also available from many used or recycled parts websites for 1/2 that price. Usually little or no warranty.

I do not recommend DIY replacement unless you are an experienced technician with knowledge of correct installation and alignment.

Hi,

Sorry no French language, I am a redneck from Alberta.

Your "cercle rouge" sounds like Light Engine Failure. This page shows the symptoms. Hitachi Light Engine Fault Gallery.

I have what seems to be the common light engine problem with our 55VS69A Hitachi TV. I need to contact Hitachi. Do you have the #?


Hitachi's Service Hotline number is 1-800-448-2244 (1800-HITACHI). They do not sell parts direct but can give you all the information for local servicing and authorized parts dealers.

Now if anyone knows the exact part number for the "light engine" in the 55VS69A, we might get once step closer to a solution for this common problem. Anyone?

LIGHT ENGINE FOR THE HITACHI 60V500


Good Day,
One the best ways to contact HIT is via the internet; hitachi corp. The light engine is very common problem for this product. Don't ask them to send part to you, work through a local Authorized Service Dealer. Ask them for a concession on the part. They only give concessions 50% of the time. My customers get the part about 98% of the time.(tech at house with estimate).
Good Luck, big IRISH.
