You may be able to correct this problem with the convergence controls in the user menu. Hitachi also has on some projection sets a button called "magic focus" which is an automatic convergence control. If you can't seem to bring things back the way they should be you may have to get your convergence ICs replaced as well as some resistors in the convergence circuit. Unless you have above average soldering skills I'd suggest leaving that up to a technician.

I have a red X on screen of my Hitachi 57f510 HD tv. What does that mean?


It may have to do with the Magic focus if that model has it: auto convergence and if fails a indication can appear on screen. The Magic focus if in play would be a flashing sequence moving to different areas of the screen in sequence.

My t.v.focus is like double vision and the color is not right.


convergence failure that tv has 3 CRTs-cathode ray tube- and it has a circuit that keeps each picture projected from the tubes aligned together called convergence. so if you have a picture that has 3 pictures of the same image in red green and blue then it is defintely a convergence failure. the part numbers of the parts causing the failure are STK394-160 and there also can be some burnt resistors in the same circuit.

This is a convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$300

Color problems with Hitachi 57in rear projection


One or more of the projectors lights( my guess is the green one) are either blown or in the process of going bad. Have them repaired or replqaced by an authorized tech.

Magic focus, #5 Manual


Sounds like a Convergence IC problem, the convergence ics would need to be replaced. This can be done by yourself or a professional.

You can turn up the Screen controls in back of set. Look for the focus block that has 6 controls on it. 3 are for the screen and 3 for the focus, in each color Red, Blue, Green. need to turn evenly to keep color balanced. On set turn color all the way down and then get a good black and white picture.
