Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

Colors overlap on left third of screen!

Hello this my first time posting anything on here, I'm looking for some help. When facing the TV the colors on left third of the screen are overlaping. I'm not sure if it's the convergence or something I can correct in the settings. It was a huge headache just getting it into the house, I'd rather fix it myself than trying to lug it to a TV repair shop. Thanks in advance, Frank

    Thank you very much for the reply, I actually just received the set from my uncle. It was like that when he gave it to me. There aren't any speakers or anything like that near the TV.

    It's almost as if there are two screens and they aren't lining up on the left side.

    Do you know of anything I could try and do to fix it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Frank

Yes it is convergence, but the first things to think about are. Did the set get bumped when you moved it? If so likely one of the guns is out of alignment physically due to jarring. However the other next best thing to look at, is if the set is near any type of magnetic object, mainly like a stereo speaker (larger ones) so if that is true, try moving it away slowly while the set is playing to see if it clears up. Lastly that the screnn itself is off or broken again a physical problem to resolve.

What is convergence IC problem


Convergence has to do with how different colors are displayed on a screen or monitor - typically the rear projection and some other types. When colors are overlapping to create unexpected combinations, or leave gaps between areas where overlapping is expected that results in a shifted red, green or blue image strip or edge - that is an indication of a convergence issue. They can look like this in severe cases:

Colors will drift, so manufacturers often include a utility to help you nudge the colors back in the right place. Most times this utility is buried in the Set Up Menu and when activated, produces a screen like this:

6c0170ed-2cd6-4dfa-bbcb-a10a7d20f92f.jpg


You will need to adjust the red, green and blue colors for each cross so that only a white cross is displayed. Keep red, green and blue fringing to a minimum. When you're done, the screen should look black and white, symmetrical and straight - like this:

40e4c7a6-f241-4888-a151-d21b0792cb71.gif

Problems arise when you are no longer able to coax the utility to give you these crisp, B&W results with no red, blue or green ghosting. This is often due to a failing convergence integrated circuit ("Convergence IC"). Many times, replacing it will solve the problem, but other times it can be the result of failing components either ahead or after this IC. If you're attempting to replace this IC, please make sure the TV or monitor has been *unplugged* for 24 hours or more to allow the dangerously high voltages to dissipate.

I HAVE A TOSHIBA 37AV502U, THE PROBLEM I'M HAVING IS THAT THE COLOR ON THE PICTURE IS WRONG, IT'S A BIT HARD TO EXPLAIN BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THE PICTURE WAS TYE-DYED OR SOMETHING, YOU CAN SEE THE CABLE...


IF THE MENU LOOKS CORRECT THEN IT WILL BE A MAIN BOARD FAILURE IF THE MENU LOOKS GOOD THEN IT COULD BE T-CON BOARD FAILURE. CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS BEFORE AND AFTER THE PARTS ARE REPLACED.

Colors arched and overlapping


if the option for convergence is still listed under the setting section of the on screen menu, then you need a convergence power supply board. If the convergence option is missing from the menu you need the ITC222 convergence missing repair kit. You can get either one at the following link they include instructions for the repair.

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works


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,Akai2_bing.gif,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
