Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blurred picture, colors not aligning.

Picture is blurred like others have written in. Colors not lining up and the magic focus does not take care of the problem.

Hello mekysor,

You have a convergence amplifier problem. This is a common problem in these types of televisions. The fix for this problem is to replace the two convergence amplifiers in your tv. These amplifiers usually go bad along with the associated bias resistors. I would suggest that if you are going to do this yourself you should use only the manufacture recommended replacement parts. There are many who will tell you to upgrade the amplifiers, but my experiences have told me this is more trouble then it is worth, if you don't plan on redesigning the circuit itself. So with that being said, here is the basic procedure:

1) Get a schematic for your set (to be used in parts location and alignment instruction)

2) Using the Schematic locate the STK329-xxx or STK392-xxx series amplifiers (They are the two large six sided components attached to a large heat sink on the deflection board)

3) unplug the TV set

4) remove the deflection board from the TV set

5) using a soldering gun or iron with either a de-soldering pump or de-soldering braid remove the solder from the pins of the amplifiers and the associative biasing resistors.

6) remove the amplifiers from the heat sink and clean the heat sink off with alcohol or a solvent designed for removing the silicon paste.

7) coat the metal plate of the new amplifiers with heat sink paste and install them on to the heat sink.

8) install the associative biasing resistors

9) solder all of the components, making sure not to create solder bridges (short circuits) on the printed circuit board.

10) inspect the soldering job for bridges and cold solder joints (touching the joins up if they are cold)

11) reinstall the board to the television (reconnecting all cables removed.

12) power up the TV and perform the alignment instructions in the schematic

13) set the alignment of the TV

14) perform the magic focus setup

This should complete this task.

Now if you feel that you can not do these tasks, please consult a qualified TV technician about doing this for you.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Shuttle83

I need to line up my colors and magic focus does not work.


If picture looks 3d in some way you have a convergence problem.

This set should use two of the STK-392-150 CHIPS FOR THIS.

The repair can be a do it yourself one if you have some skill. Magic focus only attempts to adjust at about 18 points on the screen.

Parts cost will be under 25 dollars. The repair consists of getting at the chips (2) and replacing both--on EBAY they will cost under 15 dollars (I fix sets and use a seller there).

If I can help make a comment here and if this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.
