Question about Hitachi 46F510 46" Projection HDTV

TV automatically turns magic focus mode on when the power button is pressed on the remote and even manually.

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.

How do i adjust the magic focus?


  • 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.

    We cannot get the color to align. It appears like there is a blue or yellow background around words


    If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
    If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
    You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

    Is there a Magic Focus function on 53XDF01B?


    The correct model is 53fdx01b. There is a mogic focus button on the front of the set. Procedure for Chassis DP05F, DP05, HP11, HP12:
    1. Press and hold the DIGITAL ARRAY or CONVERGENCE ADJUST button on front panel.
    2. While the button is held down, then press the INPUT or ANT button on remote control.
    3. The unit will now be in the DCAM.
    NOTE:
    1. Proceed with digital convergence adjustment.
    2. Remember to save the correction data.
    3. Units with MAGIC FOCUS only - Failure to initialize MAGIC FOCUS sensors after saving
    convergence correction data will result in a STATIC (+) display when MAGIC FOCUS attempts
    to run. The technician will then be required to access the service only switch behind the front
    cover to get back into the DCAM to initialize the sensors, since the procedure to access DCAM
    without removing the front panel, requires MAGIC FOCUS to be running.
    4. To exit, press the POWER button on the front panel.

    I have 46ux13k hitachi tv and i need to know if there is atrick to adjusting the convergence.


    Manual Convergence for the Hitachi. YOU WILL NEED ORIGINAL HITACHI REMOTE. NONE ELSE WILL DO
    1. Receive an NTSC signal.
    2. Press Magic Focus to begin magic focus
    3. Press magic focus again during the magic focus process to get the “stop” screen.
    4. While stop screen is up, press STATUS or INFO on the remote control (R/C) to bring you to DCAM mode and the service grid (64 point grid).
    5. When you first get in here? I believe red is the selected color by default (it is flashing).
    6. To choose other colors to converge, use the following buttons on the R/C:
    · “STATUS” - Green
    · “0” - Red
    · “ANT” – Blue

    ONE COLOR WILL NOT MOVE. YOU WILL NEED TO MOVE OTHER COLORS TO ALIGN TO IT.
    7. Start from the center of the screen and work your way out on one color at a time. I adjusted red across the whole screen to match green. Then I switched to blue, and adjusted that to green as well. After you adjust blue, you
    may want to go back and adjust some red again? etc. until the convergence looks good.

    · Use 4, 6, 2, and 5 on the R/C to move the cursor position (dotted lines).
    · Use thumb stick to move the convergence point color.


    Then going along the lines and adjusting, you may run into the problem of getting an ‘S’ curve on the line. You’ll know if you get there. Basically, no matter what you do to adjust the line to be converged, the middle of the line between the points will not straighten out (it bends between the points). To fix this, the manual recommends going to the (7x5) mode which gives you less points to adjust. I had this problem, and the solution worked. There is also another mode (3x3) which gives you even less points. Basically, if the set looks good, you only fine tune it in (13x9) mode (64 point). If you have serious problems, the grids work as:
    3x3 – ‘coarse’
    7x5 – ‘medium’
    13x9 – ‘fine’
    10) To get to each of these patterns use the following on the R/C: (only if you need to)
    1. (3x3) Press “STATUS” 5 times (only works when DCU is in uncorrected state)
    2. (7x5) Press “0” 5 times
    3. (13x9) Press “ANT” 5 times
    11) If you adjust the 3x3, then you should go to the 7x5, and then the 13x9. You get the point… depending on where you start, work your way up, and always finish on the 13x9
    12) When finishing up the 13x9 mode, to get additional ‘grids’ on the edges of the screen, press the PIP CH button on the remote control while in the digital convergence adjustment mode (DCAM). Fine tune the edge convergence as necessary. To exit, press PIP CH again.
    13) When convergence is acceptable, press PIP MODE to write data to ROM memory. ROM WRITE? is displayed to alarm system that ROM will be overwritten with new data. Press the PIP MODE button again to write displayed data to ROM.
    14) DATA WRITE TO ROM will take approximately 4 seconds and no picture will be displayed.
    15) Green dots will be displayed when operation is completed.
    16) Press MUTE to return to convergence pattern, then confirm again convergence is acceptable.
    17) Turn power OFF.
    18) Wait a few seconds. Turn the TV on, and you should have your normal signal. Press Magic Focus button just to make sure the magic focus still works (and that you did the last few steps properly)

    TV will not turn off with remote or manual have to unplugged


    I suspect the unit might need service. If it were only the remote, new batteries would, of course, be in order. But that part about the manual power button being ineffective suggests something else is affecting the set. Sorry.

    Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence


    You must have the original remote to do complete convergence adjustments. Remote method: Press MAGIC FOCUS button on front panel to start the magic focus. When magic focus is running, press MAGIC FOCUS again. STOP should appear onscreen. Immediately press RECALL or STATUS on the remote (must be pressed before STOP vanishes). The set is now in DCAM (Digital Convergence Adjustment Mode). Manual method: Remove the front grill and access panel or reach around from the back and press the little pushbutton located in the front left corner of the PC board, next to the Digital Convergence Module.
    Once in DCAM, the remote buttons STATUS selects green, 0 selects red and ANT selects blue. 2,4,5 and 6 move the cursor and the thumbstick makes the corrections.Make all necessary corrections and then press PIP MODE. The words ROM WRITE? appear onscreen. Press PIP MODE again to store settings. When green dots appear, press MUTE to return to convergence pattern. Press PIP MODE (ROM WRITE? appears again) and then press PIP CH. This will Initialize the internal sensor data positions. When INIT finishes, press POWER on the TV and convergence is complete.
