Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television
TV worked great for 7 years and last night I turn it on and it is distorted and has double imaging. The top left side of the screen is "sagging" and the rest of the screen is blurred/distorted and has double imaging. Any ideas? I had a laptop close to the tv before I turned it on and noticed this problem but I'm guessing that has nothing to do with it as it doesn't appear to look like other magnetic problems that I have seen.
Thanks for any help that you can provide. It is appreciated.
Projection sets have two very common problems.
The first common problem is convergence
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound
Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....
*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
