    I bought my TV 4 years ago and have had that Red Glow in the center of my TV for 2 years. I thought that it was the blub and when I replaced the blub it would go away but it has not. Now I have noticed that the color is off on all of the channels. Some channels its really red & green and others it almost looks black & white. Does anybody know how much money the light engine will cost? So much for Hitachi being the best TV out there for the money.

On the xbox dashboard i go to go on a game and it keeps saying open tray


Its called the OPEN TRAY ERROR: If your console is out of warranty, Microsoft will charge you $99 to fix it. I started a Facebook page called "Xbox 360 open tray error class action lawsuit". http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=lf#!/pages/XBox-360-Open-Tray-Error-Class-Action-Lawsuit/114541845245219?ref=search&sid=1468606128.265784874..1
Everyone I know who owns a 360 has this error. Please join (like) the page if you use Facebook so we can see how many of us have this problem. The page tells you how to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission. When enough people complain, a lawyer will be more likely to file a class action lawsuit against Microsoft on our behalf. It took a class action lawsuit to get Microsoft to compensate their customers for the red ring of death. They need to (and will) fix this error too.

Everytime i put a disc in my xbox it keeps saying open tray then when i open and close the tray it just says "open tray" again.


Hey, Ive had this problem before, Basicly your disc tray has had it, And it basicly wants to do nothing... Which is very anoying indeed.
Your best bet is to take it to you nearest game store

Join the class action lawsuit at www.reyeslaw.com by filling out their questions on the right side of the home page. I saw a thread where someone else had a very similar issue and started a class action.

I then called customer relations back and let them know I joined a class action suit and asked them to add it as a note to my file.

It's not a solution but perhaps a way to have them change their policy.

Hey Senna. This is a very common problem with this tv. It has been the same with mine for a while but I ignored it. When I finally got so annoyed I did a google search to find out if others had the same problem.

Low and behold no only did others have the same problem but there is actually a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT against Sony because of this problem. You are going to have to get the OPTICAL BLOCK replaced. Here is a link to the Sony website with more details. First step is to call Sony. Make sure you let them know about this CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. They will tell you to contact their local repair center. Here is the link. Hope I've helped:

HITACHI ULTRAVISION 50v500


Hello
This is usually not a repair a layman is able to do
as the ammount of plugs and wiring that go with it.
also the tubes have to be set up after installation .
The actual problem may be the red driver transistor or a cold solder joint.
I recommend a tec. to repair it.
Thanks Guy9
