Question about Hitachi 50VF820 Projection TV

1 Answer

We have a Hitachi 50vf820 LCD television. We have changed the lamp several times since purchase. The picture is dull and not as sharp as it was new. We also have blue/purple splotches around the parimeter of the screen. What could be the problem and can it be fixed?

You can fix the dimmed look to the tv by purchasing a new ballast for the DLP bulb.

The spots are non-repairable as they are in the light engine assembly and those are nearly $500-$600 and very labor intense to install.

Hope this helps. Click the hyperlink above to buy the ballast.

Try replacing the lamp first, If your lamp is over a year old. Next Clean the optical lens. This is kinda of involved just getting into the unit to clean.You might want to contact an authorized servicer for this.
