Question about Hitachi 53FDX01B 53" Rear Projection Television
My mother in law has an Hitachi, model 57UWX20B, ISSUE: blue , red, & white (ghosting) visable below main picture. Looks almost like the ray gun is being deflected below the actual picture somehow.
In researching this a common theme with the 53inch Hitachi are circuit board problems (loose connections, blown resistors/capitors) is most likely cause. This would make sense since issue started after someone ran into TV.
Has any one else experienced same issues with this model/what troubleshooting methods can I use to verify issue?
If issue is board related how difficult is installation of new board? Is this something you can do or does a technician need to be called? Any idea on price of parts (boards) to fix issue?
Thanks in advance
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
