Question about Hitachi 65S500 65" HDTV-Ready Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Signal Board problem

I have a Hitachi 653500 rear projection TV. I get pink, green, blue and other color static or snow instead of a usual black screen or picture when a source is selected. The on screen menu and sound works. Whats more confusing is one of the picture in picture displays will work occasionally. A Sears tech called his support line and they said it was a bad signal board. Does that sound right? $450 for the part and another $200 for labor. Thank goodness I bought the extended warrenty!

Re: Signal Board problem

Its the tuner or the signal board and yes good call with the extended warranty. I always say on big ticket items, if your not a repairman, buy that extended warranty. Here is an article I wrote about the subject. Good Luck Ps please dont forget to rate this thread

Magic focus blue is fine, green and red are really blurry, tv picture is almost black and white. all bulbs are on.

Tv have a problems known as a convergence problems,it dead.Any colors lines R,G,B mis alignment,have colors shadows pictures or 3D pictures.The tv convergence board,the 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all it resistors are dead.These parts,must be replaced on the convergence board,to solved the convergence problems.The shop,will cost u $300-350 for parts and labors.

The colors are separating pink and green, they said it was the panel, it was probably gone

Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

46" Rear Projection Hitachi - Green / Yellowish Screen

daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.

After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.

That's it. Seriously.

Tv lost color

Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.
