Re: visual lines

The most common problem seem to be with the 2 chips STK392-110

One chip use for Horizontal and the other is for Vertical. Both are the same chip and it is basically have 3 amplifier built in to amplify the 3 colors.

Anyway, this thing run hot so it burn out easily. And you can ID them by the huge heat sink that they have.

This chip runs about $10/each but of cause U need to do the soldering and stuff so not recommended for the average.

Goodluck if U R going to fix it yourself.

Why are there black vertical lines on the right half of the picture?

Vertical lines indicate a bad screen not the T con board. Only fix is to replace the screen.

Red horizonal convergence tilts instead of adjusting evenly.

For your hitachi unit one of the convergence IC is bad along with couple of low value resistance on
the convrgence board.

Good luck

Hitachi 57SWX20B 3D Effect due to green light convergence problem

I'm trying to fix the issue on my 43FDX20B. So far, I'm able to move the lines up and down, but can't get the left/right motion to fix it. The attached link has the dynamic mode instructions, so you can correct this issue yourself.

The only thing I didn't have was the screen overlay jig the manual talks about. I decided to create one myself and use the screen as a beginning template. I went to our local hardware store and picked up some home window weather covering. The roll cost about $15, is a clear strong plastic and the template was very easy to create. I used a straight edge after I put dots on the plastic and measured the lines for being square and equal after I took it off my tv. Good thing is that if you don't like what you make the first time, you have a 25' roll to use to try again (ha).
