No thats not the Problem you have to know HOW TO ENTER SERVICE MENU Their is a Long Step in getting into the SM
if not done correctly you can really Mess this TV up! Once you Enter the service menu then you can go to convergence and adjust
to correct Pattern,Then you Must Exit correctly with the Save Mode to Save alinement or you will have to adjust all over again.
With power on, press Mute-1-8-3. That will get you into convergence mode. 1 sets factory default convergence. Avoid pressing 2 - it resets everything. 3 restores the last saved settings, 4 switches among fine adjust, line adjust and grid move. 7,8,9 - select R,G,B. The three keys below those turn RBG on/off.
Self-focus to save the settings. S-Mode to exit.
It can be a REAL headache, but take your time, and you'll get it done.
As an after thought....if you have a need to manually adjust the convergence, you probably have something wrong - unless you've just replaced parts and are doing the initial convergence.
Problem with Hitachi 51F500 51 in. Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television i want to learn how to do convergence on my tv its a hitachi rear projection i have problums with colors not aligning,could you lead me in the right direction ps: i don't have the remote so i
Your convergence has failed and needs 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 call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.comand do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix. Here is an example photo....
For Factory Menu, press MENU 1 3 7 0 Service Adjustment Mode, press MENU 2 3 5 7 Convergence Mode, press MENU 2 3 5 9 Use the VIDEO or VIDEO buttons to enter two different groups of adjustments Use the VIDEO / VIDEO buttons to toggle thru the adjustments Use the + and - keys to adjust When finished with adjustments, press ENTER to save Press MENU twice to exit service mode Hope this helps. You should look for the vertical height or size adjustment. Do not adjust anything you don't know about.
Touch-up Convergence adjustments
Enter the Digital Convergence Mode (DCM) by entering 0-6-2-5-9-7-(Status or Index) on the Remote control. The following menu will appear:
Select an active channel or Aux Input. A signal must be applied to the set when performing convergence.
If any Customer Adjustments need to be made, the Menu button can be used to toggle between the Customer Menu and DCM. The MPOSD ADJUST is used to center the Customer Convergence grid. A
highlighted cross will appear along with the Convergence alignment grid. The highlighted cross should be centered onto the center of the Convergence grid.
To perform a Touch Up Convergence, highlight SELECTION and press the right cursor button on the remote. The following menu will appear:
Selections STORE, RESTORE FACTORY, and RESTORE DEFAULT are not shown after selecting
SELECTION. Press the cursor down button on the Remote for these selections to appear. RESTORE
FACTORY loads Convergence defaults from the Factory Loaded section of the Convergence Memory IC.
RESTORE DEFAULT loads Convergence defaults from the sets software.
To perform a Touch-up Convergence:
1. Enter the Convergence Mode and select RED TO GREEN or BLUE TO GREEN. Do not select
GREEN (Green Geometry) without placing a Template over the screen. To perform Green
Geometry, refer to the Complete in-depth Convergence.
2. Use the Cursor buttons on the Remote to Navigate from one adjustment point to another. Press the
Status or Index button on the Remote to select ADJUST. Use the cursor buttons on the Remote to
adjust the Red to Green or Blue to Green. Press the Status or Index button again to navigate to the next adjustment location.
3. After Convergence alignments are complete, press the Menu button on the Remote to return to the SELECTION menu.
4. Highlight the STORE selection and press the right cursor key on the Remote to save changes.
5. Use the GREEN TO RED or GREEN TO BLUE selections to perform convergence when the Green CRT has been replaced.
you must enter the service mode and align your convergence and save it to the epromm also activate the auto focus to activate the sensors , power on /mute-1-8-2- / press enter to save and before you exit activate the focus key on the remote ,very inportant to do the last step./g
If the convergence adjustment is not moving the beam chances are the convergence IC(s) are defective. If you know how to solder and understand TV safety you may be able to fix it. With power disconnected remove the back. You should see two large heat sinks with large ICs (3 by 6 inches) with about 30 leads going through the circuit board. Numbers on the ICs should usually be something like STKxxx-xxx or some variation with x being a number. These ICs control the position of the three beams. If they go bad you can't adjust one or more beams. Replace them both as you don't want to get in there again in 3 months. Cost is not that much. http://www.tritronicsinc.com or http://www.partstore.com should have them at a reasonable price. Before replaceing the ICs look at the circuit board closly for cracked solder joints. Resoldering any bad joints might just solve your problems and avoid replacing the ICs. Good luck and remember safety.
