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!

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.

Tv screen has slight hourglass shape


A common fault are some of the electrolytic capacitors failing in the pin cushoning amp section, and probably in part of the scan amplifiers.

To service this will require the proper training and set-up to troubleshoot the set.

Take the set to a service center for an estimate. The cost can be at least an hour or two for the labour, and then the cost of the parts on top.
