Question about Hitachi 43F300 43" Rear Projection Television

Menu in 3d but no video to speak of

Greetings everyone, i can get the menu to come up. it's like it's in 3d (r.g.b.) and sorta skewed. i can even get to the magic focus choice on the video menu but when i select it nothing happens. there is no picture except for a some flashes of color now and then. this flash of color occurs in the area of the screen as if you were looking at a movie in letterbox format. it looks like the colors are in a whirlwind. that's the best way to describe it. from what i've been reading it sounds like a convergence problem and all (2 or 3) convergenc modules should possibley be replaced at the same time. any help will be greatly appreciated. it's been a great set and this is the first problem that i've had with it. thanks, reteplase

Yes it is convergence IC's and could alsop be the convergence power supply feed or one of its componet.. The convergence IC's are soldered into place, so your going to have some solid state repair experience They are two black IC's that are standing up on a metal heat sink and they should have on the front of them STK-#######. The #'s are numbers. Replace them with the exact numbers and both at once. If you have no soldering experience do not attempt this repair as you will distroy or can distroy the printed circuit board assy.

How to change my recorded greeting on kx-tg6431

You can change your answering system message by pressing Menu (with the phone in standby). Then use the up/down arrows to select Answering Device and press Select. Navigate to Greeting Message and press Select again. Then navigate to Record Greeting. Use the up/down arrows to select Yes. Wait for the beep and speak your greeting. Then press Stop when your message is done; the system will stop recording after two minutes. Press Off to exit the menu system. Your greeting will be played if the Answering system is on and the greeting message time is not set to "Greeting Only". You can also access the Record Greeting sub-menu by pressing the following keys Menu # 3 0 2 .

See page 32 of the manual for more on recording a greeting. The manual is available from Panasonic here: . You can also see more about the phone's menu on pages 20-23.

I hope this helps.

Appears out of fcous for the red and green colours with a red and green image surrounding all objects.

Look in menu to see if the set has a convergence adjustment in the menu--if older set and colors are skewed or 3d looking the convergence circuit needs repair---got a model number? If a Sony should begin with KP.

NORMAL adjustments are made with the remote in the menu--if color looks skewed or even 3d go into menu and select convergence--with remote see if will adjust.

A better explanation of what the issue is might help and confirm model number if possible

Sorta looks like 3d red&green mostly also has red lines arching across bottom 1/2 of screen

ll projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.



Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

How do you set up the message for the answering machine? Lost the instructions that came with the unit. I know the phone has a menu, but not sure if this is where I would program the answering machine.

Greeting message
When the unit answers a call, callers
are greeted by a greeting message. You
can record your own greeting message
or use a prerecorded greeting
Recording your greeting
You can record your own greeting
message (max. 2 minutes and 30
seconds). If you do not record a
greeting message, a prerecorded
greeting message is used.
1 {MENU}
2 {V}/{^}: “Answering device” i
3 {V}/{^}: “Record greeting” i
4 After the handset beeps, speak
clearly about 20 cm (8 inches) away
from the microphone.
5 To stop recording, press {OK}.
6 {OFF}
Using a prerecorded greeting
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a
prerecorded greeting message for
callers and ask them to leave
