Best case scenario is your lamp is failing and will need replacing ($200 - $300). Worst case scenario is the panel is starting to fail, meaning it would not be worth repairing. The set is 14 years old and has probably reached its end of life. You can probably replace it for less than a thousand and not only have HDTV but a digital receiver as well.

Besides the lamp bulb there is a color wheel inside that may just need to re calibrated usually cost less then 50 bucks at any local tv shop. you can also change your contrast ratio to reduce the yellow coloring

Ultravision Digital TV has shadows and vertical


I believe it is either interference or a convergence issue. To fix an issue with convergence try to find a convergence setting in the menu. If thatr doesn't work try to clean your projection lenses with a q-tip and alcohol.
Good Luck.

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects


TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

Hitachi 50" Ultravision too much yellow, not much blue


First of all sorry for delay.
can you provide a image of yello shadow.I believe it seems to be technically say "ghost image"
If it is ghost image we can try by entering SERVICE Menu and adjust RGB level of the light engine.

Good luck

it sounds like your blue convergence ic is getting weak you need to replace the ic's STK392-110 and you should replace both because when 1 is bad the other will go real soon. They are inexspensive at the sight I posted and you will also get free tech online support if you purchase them there.
