Question about Hitachi 57F510 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have a red X on screen of my Hitachi 57f510 HD tv. What does that mean?

When I turned my set on, it started with a cog looking symbol and then acted like it was downloading something. After a bit, a red X appeared and stays on the screen. I am connected to AT&T wireless cable system and another tv in house works fine. Any help will be appreciated.

It may have to do with the Magic focus if that model has it: auto convergence and if fails a indication can appear on screen. The Magic focus if in play would be a flashing sequence moving to different areas of the screen in sequence.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

You may well have either poor contact on the tube base of the colour that is missing or a poor contact in the tube itself. The latter is not repairable.

Your set surely has some kind of audio output in the rear if not under a front panel.
It could be in several different forms; very common is a left/right set of (RCA type) jacks color coded red (right) and white (left).
It could also be a 'Line out' jack that supplies a standardized level for use with an external audio system; this one is probably the best choice for your useage. You may have to buy an adaptor cable to connect the two devices.

It sound to me like a defective light engine. If so this is a very expensive repair if you set not under warranty or a service contract. This could have been damaged by a power surge.

our hitachi did the same thing. It cost us 300.00 to tell us that there were two bad solder joints and they caused a power surge or something.

My hitachi 57f510 has been turning orange am I able to fix this and how.


If I remember correctly, There are 3 projection globes in the back of a rear projection TV. I would say 1 of the globes has failed which is gives you an incorrect colour balance on the screen. There is usually a red, green and blue globe. Its probably either of the blue or green one which has failed. Someone else on fixya may be a bit more conversant with rear pro TV to confirm this.

Helicopter spins uncontrollably. Will not gain left.


bent shaft maybe? are the cogs engaging properly for both sets of blades? also check your trims are centred on your transmitter before you turn it on (if it has trims)
it looks like an infra-red controlled coaxial heli, but is hard to diagnose without knowing what it is. from what i can see, the top set of blades is spinning ok, but the bottom (counter-rotating) set doesn't appear to be getting as much power,

I have straightened a large cog with a big screw driver, putting it through the outer part and levering against the inside. The metal of the cog bends quite easily and you need to work carefully, checking and correcting from the appropriate side as you go along.

Cannot get rear derailer to work properly 24 inch girls evolution


Don't start messing with the derailleur yet! Make sure your shifting trouble isn't due to something else, such as a warped, dirty, or stretched chain, gummed-up pulleys, crud in the cable housing, trapped cable, or a bent derailleur hanger
Clean the chain and the rear derailleur pulleys. Pull the chain away from each pulley, and turn the pulley to make sure it can move freely. A pulley that offers resistance to turning must be replaced.
Now check the cable to be sure it slides freely. Mud and grit within the cable housing, or on a cable-guide, can keep the derailleur from moving a "full gear" during downshifts. If the cable doesn't slide freely in the housing, you may be able to clean or lube it to restore smooth shifting.
Let the high-gear limit screw. In your highest gear on the shifter, and with the chain on the smallest cog, position the derailleur so the upper pulley exactly matches the teeth of the small cog. Run the chain a bit with the front derailleur in the large ring, adjusting the limit screw until the pulley and the cog seem to match perfectly.

Setting the high-gear (small cog) limiting screw.



Once you're sure the derailleur matches the cog, move it just a whisker (1/8 to 1/4 turn) towards the other cogs. (You may need to readjust a bit if you get chain-skip.)

Closeup of setting the limiting screw.



Now adjust the low-gear limit screw. Shift into the lowest gear (largest cog). If it won't go, loosen the limit screw. With the chain on the largest cog (and the front derailleur in the small chainring), adjust the derailleur so the upper pulley exactly matches the teeth of the large cog.Once it's perfect, turn the limit screw so it moves the derailleur a tiny amount towards the other cogs (1/8 to 1/4 turn usually works).

Setting the low-gear (largest cog) limiting screw.



Now shift to the highest gear (smallest cog). Push the shift lever to downshift one gear (go from the smallest cog to the next-smallest). If it doesn't shift, tighten the cable with the barrel adjuster, 1/2 turn counter-clockwise. Backshift and try again. Continue tightening until it shifts. If it overshifts, going from the smallest cog to the third-smallest, loosen the cable by turning 1/2 turn clockwise. Backshift and repeat until it shifts exactly from the small to the next-smallest cog.

Fine adjustment of tension in the derailleur cable.





Now go to the second-smallest ring. Tighten or loosen the cable slightly, until the outer side plates of the chain are just clearing the third-smallest cog. Shift up and down, fine-tuning until you're satisfied.

Checking the position of the chain on the cogs.

The thing that might be annoying you is called *Launch manager*. Well.. That's what I think. Look at the right-down corner of your screen in the Windows Taskbar, expand all Items, and search for the *launch manager* icon. Like this. Right click it, and choose *close*. Tataaa.

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.
