    Thank you tvtek for your help. We had this tv work on back in march 2005. I really can't believe that it is messed up again. That is a really costly part. They don't make tv's like they used to. My grandma has one that is 30 years old and this one is not even four years old. So there is no other fix? Would it even be worth fix'in? Thanks

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

    Unfortunatley not. I have repaired TV's for over 25 years now and yes I have seen a degration in durability. Then again TV's look better than they ever have, they have more features abd thier cost are ultimatley falling.

I replaced the main lamp 6 months ago. Now I have blue on the right, yellow in the middle and normal color on the left. I also have a ghost image of tree branches on the whole screen.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine.

those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.
