Question about Hitachi 50FX18B/19K 50" Rear Projection Television
I have a 12 year old Hitachi model #50FX18B V6G002327 that intermitently has the problem of the screen duplicating and adding lines across the screen. It looks like if we had 3d movie without the glasses. It used to be that it would do this for 10 minutes or so and then go away. Now it does it from the second you turn the tv on and then comes and goes as it sees fit.
Please help, this is driving me crazy.
This is a convergence problem and igf you can solder, you can probably fix this yourself. If you feel comfortable working inside the set, and are aware of the dangers of the high voltage present there. try the following: Resolder the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx.
Keep us posted.
