Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Color is mostly yellow and blue with double images

My Hitachi 53?? has suddenly become mostly all blue and yellow with double images, particularily bad on numbers and words. When I open the convergence control, the lines are yellow and blue rather than red and green. The red and green lines flash momentarily. On the left side of the convergence screen there is a blue line the looks like an etch a sketch line (curly, crooked, etc). Has anybody seen this before? Any thoughts?

    Thanks! I'm not at all a diy person so that's the exact info I needed. This does nort sound like an inexpensive repair. The set is about 8 years old so your info helps make the decision to replace rather than repair. I appreciate your time!

You have lost the convergence IC`s in your set, this really isn`t a diy repair unless you are very proficient in un-soldering and re-soldering components, once replaced there will be an alignment procedure as well that will require the service manual also, if you have more questions feel free to ask away, video-tek

    harriscj, hard to say how much because I don`t know where you live and that makes a big difference in labor & service call. I`m in west coast of Florida and my total charge would be approx. $250 but running a shop in NYC or LA has a much higher overhead so charges are higher of course, My opinion is call a few local techs and tell them you have lost "the convergence IC`s" in your set and see what they estimate, in my opinion your tv is better than any LCD on the market at this time so a 250.00 repair is not out of the question versus a grand for a LCD that will run for 2- 2 1/2 years and fail with an average repair bill of 450-500, good luck and thank you for the positive reply, video-tek

Double color image (blue and Yellow)


Good Day,

Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed:
*Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or
*Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises

Good luck, big IRISH.

Picture is yellow and green


Your missing the red drive on the set. Its most likly the picture tube. Its a possibility that the red drive circuit could be not working so the best thing to do is take off the gree picture tube socket and put the green board on the red tube. Of course do all this when the set is unplugged. if you have no tv experience. its not a good idea to be messing around inside of these sets.
