Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

3 Answers

Color Issue Have an older Hitachi Ultravision 50ux19k. Recently the tv began to have shadowing verticle lines. The picture is clear now, but only has color on few channels(this varies). It does have perfect color and clairty when using dvd player, we connect the rca plug in input1 or video1. We have checked the guns, they are glowing, the heaters are glowing also. We have checked board connections, but do not know which board is video, however did not see anything out of place. Any help is appreciated!

I,m pretty shure the problem is the lamp, just replace it and it should correct the problem

Re: Color Issue

If the set is working on the video inputs, then it has be be an issue with the input source or the tuner or tuner control circuit in the set. If it was a bad lamp or a spark gap problems you would see a problem no matter what you hooked up to the set.

Ultravision Digital TV has shadows and vertical

I believe it is either interference or a convergence issue. To fix an issue with convergence try to find a convergence setting in the menu. If thatr doesn't work try to clean your projection lenses with a q-tip and alcohol.
Good Luck.

in the tv menu or on the front of the tv there is an adjustment to align the color guns ( there are three, red blue and green). it will come up as a black screen with a color cross in the center. while this may clear up your problem the cross doesn't always clear it up completely. if the set is really old you might consider a new one.

it sounds like your blue convergence ic is getting weak you need to replace the ic's STK392-110 and you should replace both because when 1 is bad the other will go real soon. They are inexspensive at the sight I posted and you will also get free tech online support if you purchase them there.
