Question about Hitachi Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Have a hitachi rear projection 50" TV (model# 50EX12BA). The screen gets dark when it gets dark in the room where the TV is (but it brightens if a light near the TV is turned on). Also, the colors on the TV aren't in sync, so the picture shows multiple images. Also, the original remote control was lost; ordered a so-called replacement remote, but it won't let us do adjustments to the video, audio, etc.

From what i can find, you need to adjust the convergence of the individual projectors. One person said you need to adjust them once a month for optimal conditions, but also said once a year will suffice. I have an extra blue image, and although i was able to clean i dont know how many years of grime off the lenses and the mirror, i lack a remote that will operate the menu. I only have one universal remote by RCA that will operate the channels and volume, but not the input (im using S video input) nor the menu functions. You may have to buy a Hitachi remote (1-800-Remotes wants $40 for it), but i will try to get a better universal one and will post back if i have success.

Problems with brightness on the hitachi 50v810


Yes, they dim as they age, and you've done well to get 3 years out of one.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy.

Part number for IC module Hitachi 50EX12BA?


The Hitache 50EX12BA uses 2 IC's labeled STK392-110. If you are looking in the back of the set, the convergence IC's are mounted on the large heat sink on the right side. If one of the IC's has burned out, go ahead and replace both IC's with the newer improved STK392-150 IC's. These IC's are very common and can be ordered from almost any electronics parts supplier. When installing the new IC's you will need to clean off the old heat sink compound and apply fresh compound to the back of both IC's.
