On your remote there should be a button that says "Aspect" or "Pic Size". Press thisuntil the video fills the screen. If you do not have the remote of don't have the original remote, this setting can be found by preesing the menu button on the tv, go down to video settings and it should be listed under "Aspect Ratio", change it untill the video fills the screen.

Your TV has a defective optical block which should be replaced by a TV technician only. Due to the cost of the part and labor, it is almost less expensive to replace the TV. The part number for the optical block is UX23751 and is available at the following web site. I hope that helps : )

I have sound but no picture on my hitachi ultravision digital tv


When you use the remote control can you see the on-screen menus, volume or any stuff? if yes, then you may be lucky and have a cable problem. Can you try with another source (DVD, VHS) if you see video with them then you still can be lucky.Check the cables and the hdtv cable box. If you answered NO to any of the previous then its a TV problem and you can't fix it by yourself..

Hitachi Ultravision Projection Tv problem


Hitachi TV also Model # 46UX7K, Serial # W1H002013. I was hoping I can get help with this one too. The picture is dark and has lost most of it's color. I don't know if the color is off because it is so dark. Is there parts that I can buy from you to fix this problem.

50 INCH HITACHI ULTRAVISION HAS COLOR DIFFERENCE ON EDGE OF SCREEN


Hey, I found this on a blogsite about lcd rear projections....looks like our tv's screens have been burned by the "pillers" that surround the tv when switching from 4:3 to 16:9 or fullscreen... read below, I hope it helps !
cheers!

Rear projection crt's,the first generation widescreen tv's were notorious for that.Lcd and plasma can have the same problem,but it takes much longer and is not as harsh.Dlp's use tiny mirrors,so it isn't a problem with them.Lcd and plasma tv's should be ok unless you watch them with blck bars on them all the time.
We have lcd monitors at work,and i've seen them after a year with bad burn in.They also run 24 hrs a day 7 days a week with the same display.



GKar posted 2006 Oct 10 15:31 TooLFooL : i have 51" sony rear-projection and those freakin' grey bars burned themselves right into the screen...

I read that to avoid the burning you had to limit your 4:3 viewing time to 15% of total time viewed. (applied to my TV but apparently yours and others as well...great! now they tell you :-x , this applies unless 4:3 aspect was changed to stretched or zoomed...yuck :-x )

This really sucks as a Star Trek/Lexx/Farscape fan as they are mostly 4:3, fortunately the upconvert player/hdmi combo sends a 1080i 16:9 signal to my TV so the effects are drastically reduced by nearly filling the TV without the grey bars or burn in problem without stretch or zoom modes being used. yay! :wink: (default grey bars set to black automatically, apparently grey isn't needed due to screen area covered is sufficient for burn in not to be a problem.)
