Either the pins on the convergence ICs need to be resoldered or the ICs need to be replaced. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx. Resolder first. If that does not resolve it, replace the ICs.

it sounds like your blue convergence ic is getting weak you need to replace the ic's STK392-110 and you should replace both because when 1 is bad the other will go real soon. They are inexspensive at the sight I posted and you will also get free tech online support if you purchase them there.

you have a sensor problem to start magic focus is the last step in this repair done normally after replace converge outputs did you do this? if so a manual alignment is needed then you may write it into memory if you get a solid green screen after just briefly you have done it wright if you get a red screen after wards you need to try again it will stop on red if all is not well

No there are no quick fix options for this fault. The convergence amplifiers operate similar to a high power audio amplifier, so if there is an impairment anywhere in the system, it will result in distorted audio, or in the case of television convergence amplifiers, a color won't align. The convergence power pacs need to be replaced and the out of tolerance precision resistors located near the power pacs need to be carefully checked and replaced as necessary.

It is also possible that there are root faults that cause the amplifiers to go bad which include bad connections or a bad digital control module. This repair is possible for anyone having basic electronics knowledge and soldering skills.

SOURCE: Hitachi 53FDX20B 3D picture

This set uses two STK--392-110 type convergence chips----You can buy both on Ebay for less than 13 dollars plus shipping. Both chips need to be replaced and any damaged resistors around them located and replaced also--most of the time the set just needs both chips replaced and then adjusted.

If you cannot do this repair yourself--look in your area--most shops TRY to charge 300-400 for this kind of repair----I do lots of them here--did two Hitachi sets with this problem yesterday for 200-250 total.

MAKE SURE WHOEVER you get to do this changes BOTH CHIPS--SOME techs will come out and just replace one--in a short time the set will have the same kind of trouble again---Now is the slow time of year for TV repair shops---shop around for someone who will do this repair IN YOUR HOME--almost any good tech can do it in about 1 hour---if they say it "has to go to the shop" keep looking.

The chips are black(2 1/2 inches wide and about 1 1/2 inches tall with 18 pins) and will have the STK number printed on them in white--they are located on either one large metal heat sink with fins or two smaller heatsinks that are side by side.

If you have ANY questions or need help reply to this post here.

Replace the convergence Ic's with a kit that is available through your local parts distributor

You must replace all resistors in the kit
If you are not good at soldering and de- soldering have a local tv shop do it for you

Good luck

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 separated on the top from the left to right


Probably the color convergence is off. I had a similar problem. Have you tried the magic focus button yet? That is located at left in the small front control panel. Power on TV, wait 20 min (according to user guide), then press the magic focus. If that doesn't fix the problem, you could try the service mode alignment procedure. But that's a little trickier. I don't have a link handy for that procedure right now, but will look for it if magic focus doesn't re-align your color convergence.

Hitachi Mo# 53uwx10ba double image


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...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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
