Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

2 Answers

Picture has a shadow (double effect)

The picure has a doubling effect kinda like you should be wearing 3-d glasses to get a clear picture. I just bought the tv from a friend and have no manual. He says it was fine before and probably messed something up from laying it down while transporting it

Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
1. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
2. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
3. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
4. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
5. Execute the Memory Initialize operation after the adjustment values have been written on a sheet of paper. Highlight “MEMORY INTI”, arrow to the right and hold the button to the right (approx 5 sec.) until a check mark appears in the box. This activates the Memory Initialization.
6. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.
7. Write back the adjustment values from your notes to their respective adjustment parameters in the adjustment mode. (In other words, set the Data Values back to the the Data values written down before the Memory Initialization procedure). NOTE: Make sure the SELECT Button is pressed on remote after every change to the values. Failure to do so will result in the data values not being changed.
8. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.
9. Turn the set off-on and Confirm the picture remains in a good condition.
BE SURE TO COPY DOWN DATA SETTINGS BEFORE INITIALIZING I2C SETTINGS

Hello,
From your description I think your problem is "Ghost" or you can say out of convergence.
If you know how to enter I2C Service Menu it could be done with in couple of minitues.
Means you have to change some values of light engine to avoid double image.


Dont Forget to Rate!

Good Luck

Our Samsung Tantus Rear Projection TV, the colour is a problem, on the right hand side there is a red shadow next to the picture so it almost seems as if the picture is doubled. I have a double picture...


Sounds like a convergence issue with your RGB colour channels - probably need to get it serviced and have the convergence tuned.
Unlikely you can do this yourself.

Shadow effect


I think it's called "tubes" for the TV, the projection tubes are messed up, and you probably killed your bulbes. Very expensive to fix, just part out what can be used and get a new TV, or get a 60" tv with a smashed screen, and reuse your screen. People sell those on craigslist.org all the time with broken screens because they do not know how to replace them for only 100-200$

Double picture


Can you give more details? What do you mean by Double picture? Do you have 2 pictures side by side or One on top of another? Or is it like a shadow behind the main Image? If it is a shadow (Ghosting), check your Antenna - connection, direction, etc.

Sounds like the scanner is not moving freely. Try lubricating the scanner rails. And the obvious, clean the glass with windex.
