51F59A red screen all the time

1. entire grill below front screen must come off (usually held in place by screws in back on either side.)

2. locate and remove inspection plate dead center behind it.

3. Locate small black plastic block with 6 black controls built in; three (look carefully) left to right are focus--DO NOT TOUCH THOSE.

The other three are Screens and will be marked with tiny letters r g b (red, green, blue) and green is always middle.

Locate the red screen (not FOCUS).

With set on adjust red down just slightly(usually less than 1/8 turn.

Left side of sreen is blurry/halo effect. Right side is normal. Magic focus stops when it gets to green and flashes green number 5 on bottom left of screen. (Hitachi 2003 51" projection HDTV)

SET uses two of the STK-392-150 convergence chips for this, both need to be replaced and set adjusted.

Parts cost on EBAY will be under 25 dollars. I can help if you are do it yourself person. A shop will get 250-300 for this but you can do it for much less.

Can I assist you?

My Sony Projection TV middle of the screen curves down on top and curves up on bottom. Picture looks dubble like 3D, screen looks like concaved. Left side of the screen color is light green and blue, right...

This is a very common failure on Projection sets. Its called a convergence problem.
You may have one or more of the following symptoms.
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.
No Audio / No Video - Makes Chirping Sounds
