Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors are separated on the top from the left to right

The colors are separated on the top from right to left. Start about 1/3 across the top. the words dip down and are separated by the colors. the rest of the picture seems fine/ There is a little bit of this on the bottom but its the top left side that dips down about 8 inches. We just got the TV and were told about the problem, but we have manual to help us out and know nothing about the TV. Sound and color on rest of picture is great.

    We did try the magic focus, but were really clueless about it. We don't have the owners manual so we're in the dark about the whole TV. Im trying to find one. Also a service manual. Thanks so much.

Probably the color convergence is off. I had a similar problem. Have you tried the magic focus button yet? That is located at left in the small front control panel. Power on TV, wait 20 min (according to user guide), then press the magic focus. If that doesn't fix the problem, you could try the service mode alignment procedure. But that's a little trickier. I don't have a link handy for that procedure right now, but will look for it if magic focus doesn't re-align your color convergence.

    Here's a link to the service mode procedure for correcting convergence. Scroll down. I tried this and couldn't correct the red grid, and ended up in the screen with 9 cross hairs. Only way out of that is to take off the front cover of the TV and press a small blue button on the convergence board. The fix for my convergence problem is to replace the amps and some resistors on the convergence board. I've ordered the parts, but if it comes to that for you and you can't DIY or don't want to mess with it, you'll need a service call.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Thin red horizontal lines across screen


While looking at your TV, remove the bottom right speaker grill. There you will find a cover held by a couple of screws. Remove the screws and behind the cover you will find the "focus pack" which is a group of 6 adjustment screws. The top screws adjust (in order from left to right) the brightness of Red, Green and Blue.

What you will do preferably at night (or with the room dark) turn the top left adjustment screw (Red) all the way to the left and then gradually turn it to the right until the point you can see the retrace line and then turn it slightly to the left until the retrace line disappears. That's it! You can do this for all three colors - if need be. These do go out of adjustment every now and then. The 3 screws on the bottom are to focus the colors individually to minimize "bloom" on the screen. It's best to be in service mode on your TV when doing this OR open up the cabinet and cover (with something) the other 2 colors while you adjust the focus of the color you're adjusting.

Good Luck!

Sounds like a convergence issue. Call Sony for an ASC that can come out and give you an estimate. You are probably looking at $200-400 to do the repair.
