Question about Hitachi 60EX01B 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue convergence Trying to fix my in-laws TV while in town. I went to the convergence menu and did the adjustments with the crosshairs. However, when I thought it was aligned, I stepped back and found the blue way off. It looks as though the blue gun on a CRT has been rotated a few degrees clockwise (as viewed from the screen). The red is ligned up okay, but the blue requires a rotation rather than a left/right/up/down shift. Any ideas before I open up this set would be greatly appriciated.

If the problem as atated only needs rotation, then your need to turn the yolk on the blue tube. you will have to slightly loosen the screw that hold the yolk. rutate it the proper way to get it aligned with the other colors. retighten the screw, but do not over tighten, you do not want to break the tube. ALSO make sure that you do not move the yolk UP or DOWN. if so the blue picture will be resized. down the picture goes smaller, up the picture gets bigger. good luck.

hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    The color on my rear projection TV is a little off. I tried to fix it by pressing the 'test' button below the screen. I can move the red crosshair perfectly on top of the set green one, but the blue...


    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. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

    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.

    I have a Philips 51PW9303 Rear Projection TV that had blue shadows around the sides of the screen and now has a green and red bowed line at bottom. Does I need a convergence board to solve this?


    If the following doesn't work the tubes could be at the end of life:
    Adjusting convergence:
    Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

    To adjust the convergence of the picture tubes:
    1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
    2. Press CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
    3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
    4. Press CURSOR RIGHT to select CONVERGE RED or press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN to select CONVERGE BLUE.
    5. A crosshair will be shown on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around the crosshair, use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, DOWN to try and merge the fringe colors with the crosshair.
    6. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button to return to MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
    7. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.
    If you are satisfied with the convergence you may stop now. Otherwise, you can continue and adjust the convergence more using mult ipoint convergence.
    To Adjust multipoint convergence:
    1. Press the 'MENU/SELECT' button on the remote.
    2. Use CURSOR RIGHT to enter the PICTURE menu.
    3. Use CURSOR DOWN and RIGHT on the cursor ring to select and enter MANUAL CONVERGE.
    4. Press CURSOR RIGHT and DOWN on the cursor ring to select MULTIPOINT RED or MULTIPOINT BLUE.
    5. A grid of crosshairs will appear on the screen. If there is any red or blue fringe around any of them, press CURSOR RIGHT to enter NAVIGATE mode.
    6. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to move to a crosshair that has a color outline.
    7. Press the 'EXIT' button to enter ADJUST mode.
    8. Use CURSOR RIGHT, LEFT, UP, and DOWN to merge the color with the crosshair.
    9. Press the 'STATUS/EXIT' button to return to NAVIGATE mode. Repeat as necessary.
    10. Press the 'MENU' button to return to the MANUAL CONVERGE menu.
    11. Press CURSOR DOWN until SAVE MULTIPOINT is selected.
    12. Press CURSOR RIGHT to save the multipoint settings.
    13. Press the 'EXIT' button to exit the menu.

    Mitsubishi WS55859, was getting 2 and 2 blink, replaced the pico fuses and convergence chip - 3 times, each fix worked better than the next but evenually failed - now have it working, trying to adjust...


    The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

    These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

    When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
    You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

    Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

    Problem #1) Convergence

    Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

    *Screen Looks 3-D
    *Colors wont align
    *Screen may look distorted or warped
    *No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

    Problem #2
    Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

    Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

    *Dull looking picture
    *White looking picture
    *Halos around objects
    *Red/Orange looking picture

    CONVERGENCE


    Hello divine tagle,

    On your TVs menu you should have a convergence adjustment section. Find this and given the age of your TV it should allow you to adjust what is called dynamic convergence which is the center of the screen and outward. It will do so by having you adjust the blue crosshair and the red crosshair until the completly overlap. The it will have you save the setting and this for the most part is how you can set the convergence on your TV set. These are just rule of thumb adjustment, you can find better detailed instructions in your users guide, (which is you do not have it can be found on-line, or at the manufactures site).

    I hope this helps

    Thank you,

    To adjust manual convergence on your projection TV, follow theses steps:
    1. Turn your TV on.
    2. Let it warm up for 30 minutes.
    3. Press the Menu button on your remote. The Main menu appears.
    4. Use your remote to select Function, and then press the joystick.
    5. Select Convergence, and then press the joystick. The Manual Convergence screen appears.
    6. Select Red, and then press the joystick. A series of crosshairs appears on the screen.
    7. Select one of the outside crosshairs by moving the joystick up/down/right/left or by pressing the 2 (up), 4 (left), 6 (right), or 8 (down) buttons on your remote. The method you use depends on the model of remote you have. Note: You must do the outside crosshairs first.
    1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a horizontal red line, use the CH up or CH down buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the horizontal center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single horizontal line as white as possible.
    1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a vertical red line, use the Vol + or Vol - buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the vertical center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single vertical line as white as possible.
    1. Repeat for all outside crosshairs, and then for the inside crosshair.
    2. Return to the Manual Convergence Screen, and select Blue, and then press the joystick.
    3. Repeat Steps 7 through 10 for Blue.
    4. Press the Menu button on your remote to exit.
    Important: The directions above work for most Samsung Rear Projection TVs. Yours may be different. For exact directions to perform manual convergence, see your user's manual. If you don't have your user's manual on hand, click HERE to view your manual on line.
    If you cannot get your Projection TV to converge, it may need to be serviced. To arrange a service appointment, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). Have your TV's model number and serial number on hand when you call.
