Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television
Which Resistors do I change and to what Ohm?
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand, should be none. The resistor should not be upgraded unlike the STKs. Technically, the ohmage/resistance values should still be the same. If you change to a higher wattage, then, what is improved is the heating capacity, meaning it will be more tolerant to the heat but the resistance value should still be the same.
The STK upgrade is actually more to improved heat handling/transfer capacity of the STK ICs. The technically correct description is high power used in low capacity hence will not heat as much as the originally installed.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
