Question about Projection Televisions

Open Question

Hitachi 46F500 Hi my nephew pushed the magic foucs button and before it could finish he shut off the TV. Now I have a bow on the top rt corner of the tv. I can move the red and blue lines but I can not move the green line. When I try to run the magic foucus it stops at green and I get a green number 5 at the bottom of the screen.

You have two bad convergence integrated circuits and possibly an open resistor or two in the supply.

Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.
