Question about Hitachi 50UX58B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red color on screen is warped on my LCD projector TV.

My hitachi 50UX58B was working fine, but suddenly the red image appears to be out of focus with the G and B. The red part of the image looks shrinked in the middle and going out of the screen towards the sides. G and B images are in place. I opened the back cover and saw that there is some oily fluid leaking from the middle lens (Blue one, but blue color is fine though). Where will i be able to fix this red color problem? What is gonna happen now cuz the fluid has leaked out?

Re: Red color on screen is warped on my LCD projector TV.

Normally the oily fluid coming from a picture tube, is the coolant from the tube. It's very combustible and have been known to start a fire. You have two problems in this set. A leaking blue picture tube. A convergence circuit that needs repaired. Call a local servicer and see if they will give you an estimate over the phone. It's time to start looking for a new digital set. Good Luck.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct

I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Replace the convergence Ic's with a kit that is available through your local parts distributor

You must replace all resistors in the kit
If you are not good at soldering and de- soldering have a local tv shop do it for you

Double picture on left side with red projector on Hitachi 55UX58B

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Only get red screen


First of all Check Flash focus is working or not?(Flash focus should finish 1 full cycle)
If Flash focus not working you will have a error code in your screen.
If any error message or wont compelte full cycle you have problem with convergence amplifier IC
It could be one of your IC bad along with Couple of small Value resistor.

Dont Forget to Rate!!

Good Luck

TV Flickers up and down and screen is shifted to the right w/ red color dominating the screen.

The most likely problem is the auto focus module.
A costly repair.
If you are going to fix it ask for a rebuilt one.

Hitachi 51SWX20B Convergence problem


Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.
