I have a Hitachi T.V. Everytime I turn it on the picture is in "three's" and the color is in three's, Yellow, blue and white. Everything is triple. It used to stay like this only for a couple of seconds and now it just won't adjust. It is constantly in triple's, people and colors.
Any advice? Should I get rid of it?
I am unable to take care of this situation myself. Can anyone suggest a capable, reasonable priced professional service/repairman in the Dedham-Westwood-Norwood, MA area that would not take advantage of a "Senior". I would appreciate hearing from someone.

Re: rear view projection t.v
The problem with your TV
might be the convergence correction 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 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.
Getting rid of it might not be warranted if you can spend the 200-400 to get it repaired.

If you turn color off and stand back and examine the screen---if it is not black and white but yellow looking you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube which is quite common.
Easy way to know for sure is with set on and rear cover removed peek with a small mirror at the three lens---don't touch anything with the set on===each tube red,blue, green should have a picture with the set on.
Likely you will find the blue one looks like a floodlight with little or NO image/picture.
I am going to tell you a simple thing to do to know what your problem may be.
With the set on turn the color all the way to zero. Go to a channel if you can that is in black and white. What color is the screen?
If the answer is that it is blue in the background whoever serviced the set did not and could have removed front speaker grill and inspection plate behind it; there is a black plastic block with three screen controls (red,green,blue) and 3 focus controls (do not touch the focus ones.)
I suspect if the blue screen is there a slight adjustment of the blue screen down will correct this.
The picture with the color at zero should be black and white or gray. If blue is background color it will also be with color.
This is called gray scale; picture with color off has to be gray or black and white.
Before you rate this solution if you have questions make a comment right here and I will advise you.
the color filters are burned from heat there are three small glass filters one is red one is blue and one s green They are in the light engine.I know I have the same tv and the same problem.you have to take the light engine apart or you could replace the light engine.a lot of plugs and screws to take out just to change three colored glass plates
use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
