the convergence IC`s and associated resistors have to be replaced, do not repeatedly push magic focus or the alignment after the parts change out will take longer which of course means higher repair bill, good luck

You may be able to correct this problem with the convergence controls in the user menu. Hitachi also has on some projection sets a button called "magic focus" which is an automatic convergence control. If you can't seem to bring things back the way they should be you may have to get your convergence ICs replaced as well as some resistors in the convergence circuit. Unless you have above average soldering skills I'd suggest leaving that up to a technician.

If the set cannot converge it self then the convergence ICs need to be replaced. Check local professional for prices

SOURCE: Hitachi Projection TV 57F500A red looks double.

You need to replace both of the convergence IC's and any bad resistors around them that protect them from damaging the power supply.

This repair can usually be done in the home and takes about an hour; I have done hundreds of them and now is a slow time of year for TV shops; look around if you are not able to do this repair; you can buy the chips on Ebay for less than 15 dollars for a pair plus shipping.

This is a very common problem in projection sets.

Phillips tv , double vision,


You have bad convergence IC's. Replace both the red and blue drive chips. They are easy to spot. They are mounted to large, finned heat sinks. The # on the chips starts with "STK-" and then there are numbers following. Both red and blue use the same part. There are 20 or so pins to unsolder\solder. These parts are available to the consumer from tritronicsinc.com. Good Luck!!

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to repair this and I can provide you with additional details.
