1 Answer

Not able to adjust red convergence on top or bottom

Hi,
I have a Hitachi model 65xwx20b that has a red convergence problem.
The middle looks ok, but the bottom and top are all out of convergence, I can't adjust them to get convergence lined up.

Thank you for any advice/help you can provide,
Danny Conley

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

The vertical green convergence adjustment is broken


Either your convergence ic's are bad or the convergence digital module ( if your model has one ) . I would have it looked at by a service company.

Yes, it sounds to me like it only needs touch up in the tecnician convergence menu. Which you get into by pushing the service only switch after the set is on and then using an original Hitachi remote control to do the adjustments.

Go to menu ,now to setup when in set up do you see convergence? If convergence is missing in menu it is a open fuse,only it does not look like fuse ,They look more like small square capaitors brown, they will be right next to flyback transfomer FL231 (3) of them in a roll it will be the middle one,you can take needle nose plyers and pull top up on fuses.

HITACHI 65XWX20B - How to disassemble the cabinet?


The 65XWX20B comes apart in 2 pieces - there is a top half and a bottom half.

- The bottom half houses all of the electronics, projection lenses, etc. It is very heavy and should be moved with care.

- The top half is basically just the screen.

I have moved this Television multiple times, even up and down from a 3rd floor apartment!

- First remove the screws holding the top and the bottom, the important ones are on the sides of the TV.

- This is important, I suggest 3 people do this part: Slowly lift the top away from the bottom half of the TV, but -not- very far. There is small wiring harness that that attaches the top of the TV to the bottom to a circuit board. This must be unplugged by one person while the other 2 hold the top half of the TV slightly above the bottom half. Note carefully where this plugs in so that you can reassemble easily.

- Once this is disconnected the TV is much easier to move, although still quite heavy and bulky. Do not turn the TV on its side - keep it upright while moving.

Reverse this process to put it back together.

Once you have done it once it is quite easy.

Good luck.
