Hitachi 60v500 tv has split screen with white vertical stripe down side
Hi we have a 4 year old hitachi 60v500 lcd tv. I started having problems with picture not being sharp and then problems with color adjustment. Now the screen looks out of alignment there is 6 in vertical white stripe down the right side it looks like there are pieces of 4 screens on the tv. The top of the screen is at the bottom and the left side of the screen is on the other side of the white stripe on the right side of the screen. Almost all of the color is gone. I have already replaced the bulb. Nothing!!!! Still having same problem. Called Hitachi said it sounded like signal interferance to call local repair service. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is before we spend anything else on it??

Re: hitachi 60v500 tv has split screen with white...
Good Day, poandflo; After removing the power from TV remove the back of the TV (bottom only): Repair: Re-insert PDM connector on both Main Digital module and Drive PWB.
Good Luck, big IRISH. ps. remove cables one at a time and plug back in ensuring that they are seat properly.

try doing white wash feture in options see if u can get it out this way 1st before having to take aprt cheak cables are using old style sumtimes they do get glitch do factory reset thx for using fix ya . nick
It does sound like this is an alignment problem of the blue LCD or a problem on the main board controlling it. I am not sure if this is a field adjustable unit. A call to the authorized service center should provide that answer.
you have to have the entire screen replaced. hitachi tried to fix mine twice and couldnt, i finally took them to court and won. want my advice? get a new tv and never by a hitachi again!!! they are the worst!
Hitachi WILL replace the part... My tv is over 4 years old and the light engine went bad. They sent me a new light engine free of charge two weeks ago and now it is PERFECT! When you call them make sure to ask for their superior if you get denied by someone.
This is an old post but maybe it will help others. You will have to take the back off of the TV. On the bottom you will see ribbon cables coming from the screen and connecting to 3 PC boards. Take the screws out that holds the cable down. Underneath you will see 4 resistors marked 100. All you have to do is re-solder the resistors and your vertical line will be gone. You need to be good at soldering or you could damage the ribbon. The only ones that you have to re-solder is the ones in line with the lines on the screen.
I experienced the same approx. 1/2" vertical stripe on a Viewsonic vx1945 and ATI Radeon x1050 video adapter on Vista Business SP1, but the stripe appeared along the left edge of the screen, instead of right edge. I then temporarily decreased the monitor resolution, and the stripe went away. I then increased the monitor resolution back to its original setting, and the stripe did not re-appear. So, that was the 'fix' in my situation, hope this helps.
Check with www.lcdrepair.net if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your LCD controller and or GUI interface circuit or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. These circuits take the Signal from the computer and controls the 2.5 million pixels on the LCD screen. Dsut can cause major problems with handling all that data. Give it a shot, what do you have to loose, its not dangerous if the monitor is unplugged.
