Hello,
Your problem description is not clear.May be you have convergence problem with your unit.
Press flash Focus button on the control panel of the unit.If the flash focus complete one full cycle there is no problem with convergence amp.
Inorder to adjust convergence you need to enter the unit into service menu.

Good Luck

How do you line up bulbs with remote


This set with front grill removed has a tiny blue button on front edge of chassis on left side that will manually take set to convergence mode but you must have the Hitachi working remote to do adjustments---different buttons on the remote adjust and save the adjustments, I have the Hitachi book that shows all remotes they use and which buttons do what---if convergence is real bad most likely the two chips for convergence need to be replaced if Magic focus will not help.

My picture was fine until i tried adjusting red and blue dynamics now i got the shadows in picture. how do i adjust it back.


Your convergence has failed and need to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed.
You can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

Colors converge will not adjust. What can be done?


Xpertis,
When the convergence will not adjust after you know you have set them correctly using your TV's convergence adjustment, your convergence board went bad. You can either repair it yourself with kits sold online (links below) but unless you know how to solder very well, opt for a repair guy. Your model will cost between $350 and $450 if you hire someone.

If you like to tinker but not dwell into the soldering world, try finding the same model for free or dirt cheap on a web site like www.craigslist.org that still works but like where a kid jumped into the screen!, and swap out the board.

Good Luck!

Changed ic's need to reset picture every time i try keeps saing over load


If the convergence adjusts ok in the customer mode do not worry about the "overload" it only has to do with the Magic focus feature---

There is a way to overcome that but It is tricky and one wrong move and you have real problems--it involves DECAM--de-converging and clearing the set's memory of the convergence adjustments--It means the convergence has to be adjusted from scratch--I have seen this done by an expert and I have done it but no one not totally familiar with the process should attempt it.

You know there is a Tech Menu for fine adjustment of the convergence?

That is not hard to access but I have a Hitachi book that tells which buttons on the Hitachi remote do what in this mode---The remote will have on the face of it a CLU number--tells which remote it is.

If the convergence adjusts do not worry about the Magic focus--it only adjusts the convergence at about 16 places on the screen---in the Tech menu you adjust at over 60 places--much better way to go.

Get me the Clu number on your remote and I can scan the page from Hitachi---we will need to find a way for me to get it to you...............

Hitachi 42" 43gx01b Convergence problem


You have convergence output failure. The output ICs will need to be replaced and possibly a small component like a resistor or two as well. Expect to pay a service company $350-$450 to resolve this.

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
