Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

Colors drop- similar to convergence problem

I had the convergence fixed two years ago and thought that was the same problem here. The repair person says the DCU has failed and needs to take in to the shop. Est cost $500 - $700
I am wondering if I am just throwing money out the door at this point or if this is a typical age related problem.

Thanks

    Thanks Marty. He did put the grease on last time but still did not last long. Any ideas where I can pick up the IC?

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.

Concave tv screen colors distorted just had tv repaired one year ago for same problem


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

All screen is red


IF THE SCREEN IS ALL RED WITH VIDEO VISIBLE AND RETRACE LINES. ADJUST SCREEN CONTROL IN THE FRONT FOR THE RED TUBE ONLY. TURN CONTROL COUNTER CLOCKWISE. IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THE TUBE CAN BE REJUVINATED.

Do we need a new TV?


I dont think this problem can be fixed without solder work or part replacement of convergence section. Its no just matter of fuse. You should get repair facility from concern service center because TV has dangrous voltages inside and qualified person knows how to deal with TV.

Convergence without a remote


First off, you do need the original remote to adjust the convergence, Second, the service mode will not fix your problem. If the colors have all drifted, you have a problem in the convergence drive circuit. Most likely the convergence IC's are bad or going bad. The service menu is not a fix all for the problems with the convergence. The service mode will or can make minor convergence adjustments,not anything where all the colors are off. If you have no solid state repair experience, call out a service person to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

Convergence floating


First thought should be that you have bad solder conections resolder all around the vertical and high voltage and see if that clears up your problem. good luck windman
