The Hitachi part number for the screen assembly for the 51G500a is KR02844. You can call a Hitachi parts distributor and see for yourself how much those things cost, but I warn you they are not cheap!

SOURCE: Tv picture shaped like hour glass

The link you posted has been deleted, so I cannot see the picture you posted. If the sides bow in like an hourglass and the red, green and blue colors are still aligned then there is a horizontal width or pincussion problem, but if the sides bow in and the 3 colors have separated and are no longer anywhere near aligned then you have a convergence problem, both of which should be serviced by someone with experience in servicing projection TV's.

You can try it, but through my experience, it just does not look good. You may not have a problem with it. Give it a shot. Good Luck.

Hourglass Shape


If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

The picture is fuzzy and shaped like a hour glass


I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. 
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on. 

I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. 

To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com
