Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture Color is Malfunctioning

I purchased this unit new in August 2002 and have had no previous problems. But last week my color RED is now showing as a deep purple.
I cannot get it to adjust correctly and produce any RED on known RED items such as a Nebraska jersey, which is RED. No adjustments I try work, nor will it allow me to select Auto Color Adjustment on the Advanced Settings - Video dropdown. Please advise on a fix and if it is cost effective to repair the TV i.e. (approx. parts cost & ballpark service/tech charge). I don't want to pour alot of money into it, given it's age(6 yrs), and the fact that although it is a HDTV it does not have a HD USB cable port for my HDTV dish box.

You will need a serviceman to check the voltages at the red CRT pcb to see if B+ is normal and then decide if RED CRT is defective or not......T.

Had my tv for some time now without any problems.we purchased a new one and gve the toshiba 42inch rear projection to a friend,they had it a week and the screen went green,the sound is fine.we have thought...


If the screen is green then it is not the bulb. Most likely the color wheel is not turning. There is a rotating wheel that has Red, Green and Blue color segments. If the wheel is not moving then it will just show one color. This is something that can be fixed but requires a repair service center.

Red Color is not showing up.


THIS TV HAS KNOWN PROBLEMS WITH PICTURE TUBE FAILURES AND I WILL PREDICT THAT AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE EVEN IF YOU GET IT REPAIRED NOW, ONE OF THE REMAINING TUBES WILL START GIVING YOU PROBLEMS. YOU HAVE THREE TUBES IN THIS UNIT (RED,GREEN & BLUE) AND THE RED TUBE IS DEFECTIVE. SORRY FOR THE NEWS BUT JUST TRYING TO SAVE YOU THE ULTIMATE COST FOR REPAIRS, FOR A PICTURE TUBE REPLACEMENT AND SUBSEQUENT SET UP IS A MAJOR & COSTLY REPAIR.

Red outlines around, and zigzagging thru the picture.


If you were to put an all white image on the screen, would there be evidence of this red color in the picture? If so, its likely that the light engine has gone bad. One or more of the LCD panels inside has been damaged by the heat from the lamp. This is an expensive part to replace. It never hurts to contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Tv lost color


Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.
