    I have the same problem and now the TV has no sound. Is this connected to the convergence issue?

  • acbunday Dec 20, 2008

    I have a similar problem, except the sound works with my Hitachi 53UDX10B projection TV. My problem is faulty IC's. I have replacement IC's and resistors but want some detailed instructions on how to remove the convergence board. I have the factory service manual and it does not show you how to do this. After looking at the board, it appears that there are a few screws to unscrew, a few wiring harnesses to disconnect, but what I am afraid of is that the convergence P.W.B. is connected to the deflection P.W.B. (to it's Left), by 4 or 5 "bridges", if you will. The multiple leads for each "bridge" seem to be soldered and I do not want to break them because I would then have to take out the other circuit boards to re-solder them as well. Am I missing something or do you have any tips/advice?

Hello,

I posted this for another problem so I think it holds true in your case to:

The problem with your Tv might be the convergence corrcetion amplifier modules (2 STK392-110). These modules often malfunction and produce the symptoms you are describing. The cost of the parts is about from $12.00 - $32.00 depending on where you buy the parts from. The major cost will be the labor, and if needed the cost of installing the biasing circuitry that the modules use. This usually costs around $200.00 - $400.00 depending on the shop.

Here are the basic instructions to replace the components you need to replace:

If you choose to do this yourself, here are the basic instructions:
1. Unplug the TV set
2. Take the rear bottom panel off
3. look for a large heat sink with two large black ICs (STK392-110) (6 sided components but rectangular in shape) on it, and remove the board the ICs are on from the TV set.
4. Unsolder the components using a soldering iron and a suction solder remover.
5. disconnect the components (ICs) from the heat sink
6. Unsolder all of the bias resistors and replace them with the proper values (usually 220, 150, 3.3, 2.2, and 3.9 ohms)
7. install the new ICs (STK392-110)
8. solder all connections IC and bias resistors
9. Inspect for shorts
10. reinstall circuit board
11. Plug the TV set in and turn it on.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Color is mostly yellow and blue with double images


you have lost the convergence IC`s in your set, this really isn`t a diy repair unless you are very proficient in un-soldering and re-soldering components, once replaced there will be an alignment procedure as well that will require the service manual also, if you have more questions feel free to ask away, video-tek

Yellow and blue color ruins total picture on 50" tv,can't get rid


lupe0112,

I'm no expert, but I think that you have a problem with the convergence of the 3 color guns. I've been working on a similar problem. As a first step, have you tried "Magic Focus?" The Magic Focus button for the Hitachi 53UDX10B is at the left of the small front panel controls that also include your RCA composite and SVideo connectors. Let the set warm up for about 20 minutes (as recommended by the user guide), and then press the Magic Focus button. When you press the Magic focus button, the set will auto align the 3 color guns. If this doesn't fix your problem, unplug the TV for at least 4 hours and try again.

Colors are out of alignment


There is an alignment mode that you can get to. You must take off the back cover and look for the alignment switch I suggest that a tecnician do this because he has the propper tools and knowledge. If just an allignment is all it needs it should not cost that much. You have to try not to move this type of tv around because it is very sensitive and the slightest bumb can send it out of wach.

Double color image (blue and Yellow)


Good Day,

Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed:
*Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or
*Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises

Good luck, big IRISH.
