Question about Hitachi 46F510 46" Projection HDTV
I also get a red vertical line about 2 " wide on 1 side of the screen
and a green line on the other side. This happened all at once
Sounds like a convergence promblem.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of a convergence problem.
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.
