I’ve had my Hitachi 50V500 HDTV for about 6 years. A few months ago the red started to ghost. It got worse and worse so yesterday I finally found the service manual and fixed it in the service menu. Unfortunately the LCD is going too as shown by the yellow spider web in the picture. After some searching I found I was pretty lucky. The optical engine in these models is known to be faulty, often dying after 1.5-2 years of use. I have around 6080 hours on mine, including the original bulb, so I got my money’s worth.
