Question about Hitachi 51S500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The magic focus button is not working right is there a way to auto focus it as the greens and reds are not aligned on the left third of the TV
If Magic focus will not correct it (it is the limited auto convergence for this set) both the convergence chips which should be stk392-110 or 150 will have to be replaced, convergence is done with the original remote with set in the Decam ( tech convergence mode).
The parts are not that expensive and TVrpairparts.com sells kits with instructions for these sets by model number.

The magic focus will stop if there is a bad sensor and or a problem in the convergence circuit.
This set uses two STK-392-110 convergence chips--both along with any of the resistors that protect them need to be replaced and the set adjusted--I have repaired hundreds of these sets----
Confirm model number----and if you go into the customer menu and either red or blue will not move in any or some direction--the chips have to be replaced---LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND AND I CAN GIVE YOU FAIRLY DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS ON WHERE TO GET THE PARTS AND WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THIS REPAIR.
I am here to help people--

Here's a link to perform a DCAM convergence on your television and reset your magic focus. Instructions for the S series are halfway down but be sure to read the whole page. Best of luck.
