60V500A Blue Spot

Did you have any luck getting Hitachi to replace your light engine? Hitachi told me that I was SOL and that they could not and would not offer any assistance in obtaining a Light Engine. Hitachi customer relations told me that only a small number of owners have had this problem and that it is considered "Normal" for failures of this type

That is bothersome. We have not decided what route to take. It wouldn't surprise me if you called back and got a different answer.

Lamp light on after i replaced the blown lamp Hitachi 60v500a


Was the tv working before you replaced the lamp? if it was then make shure you have reinstalled the new lamp and the door exactly as removed, there is a disconect switch on the door that has to close when the door is reinstalled,or sometimes the ballast may go bad at the same time.Hope tha t will help you fix it.

Have a 50 inch Lcd projection Tv and it has a big blue spot in the picture and in that spot the color is all missed up turns ever thing blue can you help me


If this is a DLP, then it could be the light engine. Hitachi has had a big problem with their light engines. You might try to contact coustomer seervice and tell them the symtoms. They sometime have been replacing the light engine for free,but.... you have to pay for the service call. How do I know that..... They replaced mine (50V715) and it cost me $300 for the service call. They will not let you replace it. You have to have an authorized dealer service it.Good Luck! I hope this is helpful.

Have a green tint over 90% ot the center of the screen


I had the same problem with my 60V500A about a year ago. The screen got a red tint in the center and the image was fuzzy in that area. A new lamp didn't solve the problem. I did some checking and found out that the original light engine used in this model had a cooling issue that could cause the light engine to overheat and distort the LCD panels. My warranty had run out more than a year before this happened so I figured I was screwed since the light engine was so expensive. I decided to call Hitachi tech support and see if I could get a discount on the cost of a new light engine since the cooling problem was a known issue for this model TV. I calmly explained to them that I was aware of the cooling issue in the light engine and that I felt like a $4000 TV should last more than two or three years. Tech support gave me the phone number for my local authorized Hitachi service center and I gave them a call. Once the technician confirmed that it was the light engine that was the problem Hitachi sent him a replacement light engine at no cost to me. I was WAY past my warranty period so I still had to pay for the labor to replace the light engine. $300 for labor was a lot cheaper than buying a new light engine or tossing the TV and buying a new one. I have to say that Hitachi earned my respect for admitting there was a problem and doing what was needed to correct the problem more than a year after my warranty had expired.

Your Light engine is going out. You can try a place called Vance Baldwin Electronics. They make a refurb engine, that will save you a ton of money. www.vancebaldwin.com They are not hard to change yourself.
