Question about Hitachi 61SWX10B 61" Rear Projection Television

The split screen shadow remains on my 52SWX10B projection TV

My kid figured out long ago how to watch cartoons on one screen and play his PS2 on the other. The outline of the split screen stays there now when the full screen is being used and it looks like it's getting worse. It's just a shadow but it is annoying. Is there a fix or is this permanent?

Unfortunately, this sounds like the transition between the split screens is now burned into the phosphor of the CRT's and is permanent, unless the CRT's are replaced which would cost as much as a new TV.

Sony kdf-e50a12u rear projection lcd bravia. red shadows

This is due to you having a projection tv, some projection tvs are really bad for game playing and especially if you have a hdtv. even in the p23 manual it says that you shouldnt use with a projection tv cause it can damage your tv's screen permanently. I personally still play mine but, thats likly the problem.

Connecting PS2 to a Hitachi 51F500

Sure! My kid is playing her brand new PS2 on ours right now. Just open up the front panel (where the start button is) and hook the three wires there, then choose the 5th input button on the remote.

That is all there is to it.

Black Screen

Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!

JVC AV-56WP30 red "shadow"

The problem called Convergence problem. Unfortunately, some sets have manual convergence boards - which means you can do nothing but replace it and adjust the manual controls on the board itself. But some of the newer ones (Maybe yours) can be accessed through a service mode. So, give it a try and look for a service mode in your set... Good luck!
