The color has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years. 
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps!

The solution process described above is the same for the Hitachi, but you probably need different convergence ICs. On the Hitachi 50UX26B for example, there are 3 ICs, not 2 as mentioned for the Sanyo. They are IC STK4274, Hitachi part 2003191. The cost seems to range from $15 to $32 per IC.

I have a hitachi 43uwx10b and i don't have the original remote. neither the universal remote i bought nor the remote that my cable company provided seems able to change the input. all these remotes do is...


Yes, almost ANY hitachi remote made in the last ten years will work.

The original will have a CLU-5722-TSI marked on the front. Lots of them on Ebay and other sites.

Google the model number with the word remote after it and see how many there are.

Lots of universal remotes will be missing functions only on the original remote. That remote will operate all the projection, LCD, PLASMA, and regular sets made by Hitachi for at least the last 15 years.

I know, it works on my 1991 Hitachi rear projection set perfectly.


Let me know if you have questions---avoid universal remotes like the plague.

I have the same problem. I took the back cover off of the TV and blew all of the dust out and the TV started working again. But this only lasted 2 days. Now the TV is dark again.
