what other infromation do you need?
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

We do have problem with all the devices that are connected to the t.v., the tv looks the same no matter what we have on. 2007 is the year it was made.

What you have is very common problem in these LCD projection sets like yours, what has happened is the light engine has failed and needs to be replaced. This is bad news because to replace a light engine will run around $800.

 

However the only good advice I can give you is to call Hitatchi and complain about the issue, most of the time I find they will supply the part and make the customer pay the labor, labor to put one of these in is around $300-$400 depending on the part of the country you are in. If that sounds good to you I would call them and complain, be nice to them at first because normally they take care of it no problem, but if it looks like they aren't going to help then you should get stern with them and tell them that it is ridiculous that a 5 year old TV should need a $800 repair and see what they do for you!

 

If you have more questions or need clarification please let me know!

 

 

If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!
