Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 42 inch ultra vision has double image

Our TV is about 9 years old and there are double images, one in red and one in teal. The overall color is red. (So if you see the word "football" we see it twice) We have used "magic focus" several times but it doesn't work for that problem. We are wondering how we can fix the problem and how much it may cost to fix it. We loved the television. We're just not sure if it would be too expensive to fix and perhaps we should get a new one or is it an easy fix and in short order we can have our favorite television back in working order.

We appreciate your expert opinion and so does the rest of the family who enjoys watching the Packers game on Sunday.

Sincerely,

Bill and Roxanne Charles

It is just a convergence problem which makes the image look doubled.it can be repaired by any good local tv technician for approx 75 to 80 dollars.nothing much to worry.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct


I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Double image/ out of focus with green and blue seperation


Your tv is crt-based and is out of convergence. In other words, the settings for keeping the Red, Green and Blue images aligned have drifted and must be reset. This is common with CRT projectors and CRT rear projection tvs.

Refer to your owners manual for instructions on re-aligning it.
