Replace Both of your STK ICs they are your convergence ics they are big black ICs will have Part# on them for example STK392-110, if they are 110s use 180s, if 020s use 040s other wise replace with exact same number. To get Parts call Electronix 1-800-223-3205

    Go back to convergence board recheck where you have solder ,make sure you havent solder wrong two connections together Also did you change out any of the resistors There is Six of them (RK42) 3.3 ohms. (RK46) 1.8 .(RK50) 2.7 (RK54) 1.5 ohm (RK58) 3.9 (RK62) 2.2 ohms----- I work on so many different tvs i forgot about resistors, Resolder IK01 and QK01.

    IK01&QK01 Transistors 3 legs up front on convergence board there is a setup switch on that board at the very front of board both are next to it. If you go to Front of TV remove speaker cover behind it you should see whole chassis from front on convergence board is convergence setup button press it and hold for 3sec with TV on ,release then convergence Pattern should come up.

HITACHI 57UWX20B has blue ghost shadows how do I


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

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

69189a5.pngCONVERGENCE SOLUTION

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

Red convergance appears tp be off, seeing ghost images shifted left


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!
