Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Red Spot 50V500

Bill,

Thanks for the info. I wasn't asking Hitachi to send the part to me I wanted them to send it to the local Hitachi authorized service center and they have denied that too. Said my tv is too old and because of no prior service records on the tv they can't help me. I even have my sales receipt from Sears. It appears Hitachi was getting flooded with calls regarding the defective optical light engine and couldn't keep up with the demand to send these out @ n/c because there got to be too many of them. Even though they know it was a defective part they are denying people now because the word out about it and they can't feasible keep up with the demand. That's my assumption of course. But then again I just got a call from a guy from LA last Thursday who got my phone number off this forum and said Hitachi agreed to send him a new light engine @ n/c and his tv is 4 years old too with no prior service records. So what gives!??? They are not treating people fairly. Supposedly, someone on this forum is persuing a class action lawsuit against Hitachi regarding this issue.

Thanks.
Deb

I would strongly suggest that you see what kind of a tech you have asking for the replacement... My industry is flooded with too many have-solder-gun will travel wany-to-be techs. And Hitachi is VERY particular who they do business with... If they even suspect that the tech who asked about the part is not capable of installing it properly that may be the problem....
I do know that that program is still ongoing. We did one as recently 7/20 and had no problems getting the part...
Don't really think Hitachi is trying to single you out - - so you might check that out..

Access the HITACHI web-site, and enter the serial-number of your disk-drive, to check the end-date of the warranty, and to open a RMA (Return of Materials Authorization) request, to authorize you to ship the disk-drive back to Hitachi.

Good Day, firstshot;

This is a common problem with this TV, but there is an upgrade to correct the CONVERVGENCE circuit problem.
If you want to repair this concern yourself: Contact: B&D ENTERPRISES,
1-800-458-6053, www.bdent.com and ask for KIT10 for your Hitachi TV.
If you want some else to do the repair for you call an Authorized Service Center.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

LIGHT ENGINE FOR THE HITACHI 60V500


Good Day,
One the best ways to contact HIT is via the internet; hitachi corp. The light engine is very common problem for this product. Don't ask them to send part to you, work through a local Authorized Service Dealer. Ask them for a concession on the part. They only give concessions 50% of the time. My customers get the part about 98% of the time.(tech at house with estimate).
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Can you post a picture of your picture so I can see the type of distortion youre having? It sounds like a convergence Issue, but a picture would help me acurately diagnose the problem. Please respond to this same post.
