Solution:

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 www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

52 inch tv has a warped picture with a rainbow type ark at top


This set needs a major repair. there are bad connections on the power board and a fuse is blown. You pretty much need a technician to fix this.

Warping


If this is a projection tv then replace convergence amps. and resistors in the area also look for open fuses.
