You have a bad convergence circuit, very common problem. A good repairman will run you around $400 to do the repair.

Let me know if you have more question.

You need to replace the STK ICs which are Convergence ICs STK392-110 use 120s or 150s
also check the small ohm resistors around ICs . They are Big Black ICs and will have part number on them ,should be located on the Right hand side of Chassis .

Magic focus error Hitachi 51F500A


ok, you have more than 1 post for this set--this model uses two of the STK-392-110 OR 392-150 Convergence chips.

If magic focus will not adjust the picture both chips need to be replaced--about 13 dollars in parts if purchased on Ebay.

Green is not offered to be adjusted since it determines the geometry of the picture--red and blue are adjusted to it.

Let me know how much skill you have and I can tell you how to fix the set--it requires two things--getting at the chips and being able to unsolder and replace them--there may or may not also be some resistors around them that are now bad and need to be replaced.

most shops get 300 or more for this repair--total parts cost if you are able to do it yourself is under 30 dollars.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Magic Focus error green 5.


Here's a link to perform a DCAM convergence on your television and reset your magic focus. Instructions for the S series are halfway down but be sure to read the whole page. Best of luck.

Is this a new television? Under warranty? You need a service call.
