Hitachi 50V500 Red Spot

Hello,

I noticed you mentioned you have a copy of the asc data sheet from Hitachi. Will that help my case? I have the big red spot/halo in the middle of my 50" LCD rear projection TV and have contacted Hitachi 3 times since 7/30/08 and the continually deny to send me a new optical light engine @ n/c. Will the asc data sheet help my case?

thanks.

We have contacted the company and they will send out a tech. Is thier anything we need to do to insure that we will be able to resolve this problem?

Deb,
Unfortunately if you're not a technician Hitachi won't even consider sending you a LE for install... They will confirm your status and have you fill-out several documents.
As to the other part of the question, the service manual won't help - there is a procedure for memory re-initializing and after performing that you still have the spot then LE is called for.. But again, unless you're a tech with those letters behind your name Hitachi won't accept the results.
That said, we have done several of these and Hitachi has been exceptional to deal with pre and post install.
Hope this helps!
Bill

Big red spot when screen goes to a black scene or a darker scene,


Chances sre you have a problem in the Optical Engine. This is a exspensive repair and I would call Hitachi to see if they could assist in the cost of the repairs.

Same problem


The red death as its called.

Very common in the 50v500 and 50v700 series.

it is caused by a blocked filter deep inside the TV, nearly inaccessible.

The LCD panels overheat (red one or blue one) and the light engine needs to be replaced.

You are better off living with it unless you have a warranty.

Sorry it wasn't better news.

Light Engine Problem with my Hitachi 50v500 - Solution


I had whole redish/pinkish screen on my 50v500 starting a few days ago, then I read through each of the threads on this site for the samilar problems on my model. I found TVtechmaniac's solution (pasted below) solved my problem. Thank you TVtechmaniac!

Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
1. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
2. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
3. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
4. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
5. 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.
6. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.
7. 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.
8. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.
9. 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

TV Problem


It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/50V500/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/UX22201D/New.aspx

Red spot when screen is black


Your light engine will need to be replaced as you have a LCD panel failure. Here is the link to the part number for the model 50V500 if you have the 50V500A it has a different part number. http://www.partstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductSKU=8286849&ProductType=PART&ModelID=374014
