Wiring harness damaged during move

While the three plugs were disconnected to move....while the movers were transporting top section of tv...the smallest of the plugs hung up on the porch and pulled the connector/harness piece off...2 pink wires and blue wire...where can i find another piece to replace this....or more importantly.....what does this wiring control?...the tv seems to work without it....i stripped down the three wires and jammed them into the harness without being able to crimp...electrical tape on that to make the connection...i think....not sure what is operated from these wires though...will i damage the tv by using it....the only thing i see that doesn't work correctly is the perfect focus gets to about 40% complete...and then resets and starts over.... any help would be appreciated...haven't been able to find a service manual... jay

HITACHI MODEL # 53UDX10B has a flashing red light and a buzzing sound

If it was transported likely the set was damaged--one of the three picture tubes used could have been damaged--the flashing light is the set trying to come on and the buzzing is related to whatever is bad.

It needs to be opened and inspected.

I need too seperate top from bottom so i can move my tv, whats the best way

the BEST way is to use professional movers, as usually when self moved they end up in someones workshop, or the scrap heap. Moving these units without special equipment and packaging is thwart with peril. You must be very very careful,it is best to ship it, as one unit. I see so many units that have been moved by the owner, and not done correctly, you need padding and NO jarring it knocks, it must be done Oh so carefully. In ONE unit. They ate just to delicate for words. get it moved by professionals you will not be sorry. Otherwise take extreme care also when transporting it MUST be vibration free. and packaged like glass.

Can you easily seperate the top and bottom of the ws 65807 for moving?

Yes. I have the ws-65809, which is virtually the same model. There are 4 rubber plugs that come out on the sides of the TV. under these are four screws. WARNING! You must disconnect the wires connected to the screen before removing the screen or removing the top half of the TV. If you don't the wires will rip out. I believe they disconnect with 2 clips.

Moving the TV

TV should be in upright position during transportation in some safe packing around it.

Very unusual issue. It is the best to run test patterns in service mode to figure out if problem created before of after Optical block. If red stripe present in optical test patterns - that's mean optics is bad or something is laying on the lens. Unfortunately I can not tell you how to do that because if you will make any mistake during getting out of test paterns mode your TV could stack with white raster forever and total system re-initialization have to be performed in service center.
But first you can carefully remove screen and look at optical block lens - maybe something blocking it. I doubt it though because it is red stripe, not the dark one. So next step - call tech to run patterns and determine if optics is bad. If distortion is absent during test patterns - than it is issue if digital nature and created by TV's electronics on main chassis.
I personally think that during transportation something happened to red LCD part of the optical and optical block have to be refurbished or replaced.
Good luck with this one!

HITACHI 65XWX20B - How to disassemble the cabinet?

The 65XWX20B comes apart in 2 pieces - there is a top half and a bottom half.

- The bottom half houses all of the electronics, projection lenses, etc. It is very heavy and should be moved with care.

- The top half is basically just the screen.

I have moved this Television multiple times, even up and down from a 3rd floor apartment!

- First remove the screws holding the top and the bottom, the important ones are on the sides of the TV.

- This is important, I suggest 3 people do this part: Slowly lift the top away from the bottom half of the TV, but -not- very far. There is small wiring harness that that attaches the top of the TV to the bottom to a circuit board. This must be unplugged by one person while the other 2 hold the top half of the TV slightly above the bottom half. Note carefully where this plugs in so that you can reassemble easily.

- Once this is disconnected the TV is much easier to move, although still quite heavy and bulky. Do not turn the TV on its side - keep it upright while moving.

Reverse this process to put it back together.

Once you have done it once it is quite easy.

Good luck.

Picture out of alignment

Look in the menu for a manual alignment. From there you should be manually able to adjust each corner and overall color alignment unless other damage has occurred. Try that first.
