50 inch hitachi tv, shadow behind writing and crooked screen

The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC’S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC’S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases GOOD LUCK!!!

Red an green lines across the tv about every two

Sounds like you have retrace lines in your picture. It may resemble something like window blinds, but slanted to the lower right. You most likely have a bad crt or the AKB circuit is bad. This most likely needs a technician to adjust the G2's to see if it can be balanced.

Convergence lines are SLANTED. Red line is above

Your TV most likely a convergence 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.


You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Convergence lines are SLANTED. Red line is above horizontal center on left side on screen and below horizontal center on the right side of screen. Also left of Vertical center at the top of the screen and...

did you check the six 3.5 pico fuses that are next to the ICs? They will often be open ( blown) when the ICs fail. Also check the two 5 amp IC protectors on the G board as those protect the two ICs so its possible they have blown also a 5 amp pico can be substituted for the two IC protectors.

Slanted Picture

It sounds like the dm bd. is loose. This is the module with the DLP IC on it. With the back off of the unit their is a module directly in the middle of the chasis that has a metal shield around it. Try to move it gently to see if it is loose. If it is loose that is what the picture is tilted. This is very difficult to align, but if you have someone watch the picture as you gently move this module you can get it strait. Then locate the screws that keep it tight and snug them
