Question about Hitachi 46F510 46" Projection HDTV
The TV automatically turns to magic focus mode and will not turn off when the power button is pressed on the remote and even manually. I had looked into all the settings located in the menu options and could not find anything out of the ordinary. Do you believe it would something inside created by a short and would have to be repaired by a profesional or could I do something with the defect.
I fixed it!!!! I couldn't turn off via the remote or the tv because it kept going to Magic Focus. So, what I ended up doing is hitting Magic Focus inside the tv panel. Hit it....and then the Magic Focus went on....then I hit the power button...but not quickly....kept my finger on it for seconds longer and it went off.
I am now able to turn it off and on....
Hmm... that was all trial and error... but it worked!

I have this problem starting today. Unfortunately, others who have fixed it have done the following.
* Unplug TV for hours and it worked
* Buying manual switch to the outlet or surge protector and switch power off that way.
It appears that I'm in no mood to spend hundreds to get this fixed for hundreds of dollars and just going the Radio Shack route of buying a switch which would probably be more of savings. But needless to say, I hope that is the only problem I have.

Tips for a great answer:
Press "Menu" on the remote select the "Magic Focus" option in the Video menu or press the "Magic Focus" button on the front panel to adjust the convergence of the three picture tubes that create the proper color for the picture. Pressing the button on the TV initiates the automatic adjustment, and accessing the feature through the Video menu allows you to choose automatic or manual adjustment, though the "Automatic" setting must be selected for the button on the front of the TV to begin the process.
