Looks like you need to adjust some panel voltages, usually the VS or VSCAN voltages, the panel on the inside of the set has a label with all these voltages on it and there are test points and small adjustors for changing these voltages, lower the VS voltage about 10 volts and while adjusting them have it hooked up and turned on, so you can watch the changes take place, if your not sure how to do it get an electronics specialist to do it, these tv's are loaded with high voltagers and can cause severe shock, be careful

My hitachi tv model 43fdx15b has a blue shadow


I tmay be your graphics card, but I would try and adjust your display via the Display Options probebly located somewhere on your Games Start Menu.

But like I say, it might just be your graphics.

I hope this helps.

Blue shadows & black screen with flashing red light


Your problem is the convergence IC's (part number STK392-110). They will need to be replaced as well as matbe a couple of burned resistors that will be right by the IC's. Due to the complexity of this repair as well as the alignment required after the parts are replaced. you may want to contact a tech. Let em know if I can be of further assistance. You can find a local tech by going to the homepage of FIXYA and inputting your zip.

Mitsubishi WD-52631 shadows and blurs in dark lit movies


If you are getting the same problem with both TV monitors it could then be assumed it's an input problem to the TV monitor. If you are using a digital output from your receiver it could be the cabling. If you are using an analog output from your receiver it is probably coming from the receiver.
Digital video processing does have issues with darker scenes.
Can you try another video source seperate from the receiver like a DVD or better yet an analog VHS, if you still have one. Good luck and let me know.

Text shadow


no red lights, no previous error msgs, and video output on the box has just died. playing halo yesterday and mid-game the colours went askew (like a green overlay) with horizontal banding, backing out to the dash solved nothing so after a reboot there was simply no video. troubleshooted the tv and cables and its definately the box.
