Select a non-used or blank Video input or tuner to get into I2C menu, also make sure the Power LED on the Front of the set is not blinking at all.

  1. Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
  2. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
  3. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
    1. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
    2. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
    3. Execute the Memory Initialize operation after the adjustment values have been written on a sheet of paper. Highlight “MEMORY INTI”, arrow to the right and hold the button to the right (approx 5 sec.) until a check mark appears in the box. This activates the Memory Initialization.

    4. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.

    5. Write back the adjustment values from your notes to their respective adjustment parameters in the adjustment mode. (In other words, set the Data Values back to the the Data values written down before the Memory Initialization procedure). NOTE: Make sure the SELECT Button is pressed on remote after every change to the values. Failure to do so will result in the data values not being changed.

    6. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.

    7. Turn the set off-on and Confirm the picture remains in a good condition.
      BE SURE TO COPY DOWN DATA SETTINGS BEFORE INITIALIZING I2C SETTINGS

My Hitachi 50V500A has a large area where the color is turning out to red. Is this a lamp or a complete light engine replacement job?


not the lamp. hitachi knowingly had a defect with the fan not allowing enough air to cool the lamp which has burned the red color lense resulting in the red on your screen. enjoy your new brick thanks to hitachi!

The color is low


If this is a 50V500 record the I2c buss settings then "Memory Inti" then re-write the recorded data. Solves about 80% of the color distortion problems. If it's not a 50V500 you need to expound on your problem and include the model number.
