I stumbled upon this problem by accident... I took the front cover off my sony 57" so I could see if replacing the red IC Convergence circuit would be difficult to fix myself ( I am inclined enough, but thats not our point here )

I looked up at the mirror which projects the image from your bulbs to your screen and saw the tops of my bulbs were absolutely coated with dust......

I took some toilet paper ......(Paper towels are too rough-at leats the ones I had at the time) and dampened it with windex and softly clenaed the bulbs...dont be in a hurry. You can make it easier to see what your doing if you use the mirror for guidance rather than guessing if you got all the dust off.

I can assure you if you never cleaned those bulbs they need it...

The color on my TV was soooooo much more vivid after I cleaned the bulbs.....

Usually the front panels are only held on by 4-6 phillips screws-and you may have to unplug the wires going to your speakers so you can get the panel out of your way.......they simply unplug

I am not sure exatly how the front panel comes off your model ( NOT THE SCREEN-THE PLASTIC SECTION UNDER IT). I can assure you if you take your time ANYONE can do this.........Remeber be easy and do not overwet the paper towels/toilet paper......

Any questions get back to me...

    You have to access the IC convergence through the remote which if your TV went black is going to be next to impossible...make sure ALL YOUR INPUTS ARE CONNECTED AND ONE DIDNT GET PULLED OUT OR SOMETHING....BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE A SERIOUS PROBLEM AT THIS POINT

    I would say go with the hitachi brand unless you can find one that specifically says it will work with your TV......Cant exactly say I have ever ran into that problem

46" Rear Projection Hitachi - Green / Yellowish Screen


daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.

After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.

That's it. Seriously.

Picture has gotten darker


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
