Question about Hitachi FDX Series 43FDX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Model 43FDX01B - the convergence adjustment won't fix the problem

The TV shows a red shadow - the convergence button allows you to alien the colors however the red will not move enough to alien. I had seen one solution that suggested the convergence board needed replacing. I could do that if I could identify it. The same solution suggested replacing the (2) ICs (what ever they are). If I had the part numbers and ordered them - would I be able to recognize them on the TV to replace?

SOURCE: Color convergence problem

My blue gun was out of alignment. I was receiving an error code 4 during magic tune. I ordered the service manual from manualscenter.com. The service adjustment/ trouble shooting guide section is awesome. The problem ended up being a bad resistor (RK54). Mr. "Guest", RK 50 is a 1.5 Ohm 1W resistor. I wouldn't attempt this repair unless you can read schematics and are familiar with high voltage components. A HV capacitor is right next to the convergence board. Good luck.

SOURCE: Convergence

Did you check the resitors out of circuit? As its very rare when a Hitachi doesnt open at least two on the affected circuit. If you checked the resistors in circuit an open resitor will read good even though its actually open.

SOURCE: Removing the JK07132-A convergence board

Unplug TV from ac outlet for few hours, this will discharge caps in circuit boards and you can take out desired board after unplugging connectors.
Always Be Careful while doing repair in TV.

SOURCE: Akai/Samsung PT4299HD Convergence Problem

Try resoldering the pins on the ICs first. If that fails to resolve the problem, change the IC responsible for RED. You should be able to determine that from the service manual. In that area you should also see either fuses or low valued resistors that feed the STKs. Check those as well.

Let me know if you need further info.

My picture in my television is like shadow box size but not a normal shadow box program. When the t.v. is bumped the picture goes to normal then back to small , What is obviously loose?


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.

•Screen looks 3D

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

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

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
