My tv has a yellow, green or blue tint to it. We think it needs a new picture tube. Do you think that is the problem and if so is it easy to do myself


You have Light Engine Failure. Only fix is replace the Engine. Here is a Page that shows Hitachi LCD Projection TV Optical Engine Faults.

Check for these faults before spending money on a failed bulb. Here is page with all Hitachi TV Lamps and Bulbs.

A reddish cloudy swirl sweeps across part of my screen.

IF you are seeing a red or pink large oval area in the middle of the screen, I can tell you what the problem is.

It is not the lamp.

Let me know if you need more information--please confirm you have the red or pink oval.

Hitachi 53fdx20b and it has a wave acrost the top

Yes - You will need to either remove the circuit board or lift up the tray. If you are not sure how to do it yourself read the link below.

  • This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
You can see some example photos and find a solution here...

I have a Hitachi 53FDX20B and the picture is looks stramge

It is not your Picture tubes that are bad, it is your Convergence IC's. The IC # to use is STK392-180. These are better than the originals, also invest in these resistors: 1.5 ohm 1w,,,1.8 ohm 1w,,,2.2 ohm 1w. (watt). I would by 4 each. Your soldering skills will come into play so roll up your sleeves and go to work.....Good luck ! and let me know how you do.

My Hitachi 53UWX10B has never had a problem until tonight when the picture has a reddish/purplish tint. Suggestions on what to do?

Make sure your component cables are fully seated in the TV jacks, and also in the source (cable box, dvd, etc). Sound's like you are missing the green signal.
This actually happened to me and I spent an hour figuring it out.
