Question about Hitachi 53SBX01B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hitachi 53sbx10b I have a 6 year old 53" RP Hitachi model 53sbx10b and having a problem with a green, blurred Halo effect in the bottom left corner of the screen. Its especially noticeable when i go into the on-screen menu and can barely read the letters as they are blurred & doubled. I did recently move to a new place and noticed the problem as soon as I plugged in the TV in the new place. The TV was transported in a truck, so it obviously moved something out of line. I tried using the MagicFocus setting and it did seem to help slightly but thats it. Is this an easy fix for a technician? I really dont want to spend $400 or so for a new convergence circuit? Any help would be great. Thanks

Try the auto convergence feature of the TV. Press the button on the front of the tv and wait about 5 minutes....

Left side of sreen is blurry/halo effect. Right side is normal. Magic focus stops when it gets to green and flashes green number 5 on bottom left of screen. (Hitachi 2003 51" projection HDTV)

SET uses two of the STK-392-150 convergence chips for this, both need to be replaced and set adjusted.

Parts cost on EBAY will be under 25 dollars. I can help if you are do it yourself person. A shop will get 250-300 for this but you can do it for much less.

Can I assist you?

All color guns out of alignment

Needs convergence amps replaced. Sometimes resistors burn and need to be replaced. This repair requires soldering/desoldering equip. and a trained eye, but usually can be done for 175.00-325.00 at a reputable service center. Good luck, Russmann.

Convergence problem.

This sounds like one of your convergence IC's has burned out or its solder joints have cracked loose. Sometimes when this happens it burns up one or more of the 3 low-value resistors next to it. This should be repaired and realigned by someone with experience.
