Question about Hitachi 43UWX10B 43" Rear Projection Television

Projection TV is out of focus

Had no problems with this TV, always had a great picture! One evening we turned it on and it was out of focus. We hadn't made any changes to the TV. It hasn't been moved, no changes. We tried the MAGIC FOCUS button, didn't help. We would like to fix this ourselves. I have the same problem. I had the amplifiers and resistors replaced. Worked ok for about 2 days and went bad again. Repairman said I needed that whole assembly replaced. He tried to find one and couldn't. Any ideas to try

Thanks
Jake

What you can do it get a broken TV (screen broken??) of same model from ebay and salvage the parts.

That might work out cheaper.

Hi there.

Your TV has lost convergence, and as the convergence setting and autofocus do not help in fixing the problem, that means that one of the convergence ICs had blown.

You need to have the convergence ICs replaced, the job can cost $200/$300 at a local repair shop.

Below is explained how to do this kind of repair:

Hi!
Try adjusting the picture yourself by entering the service mode, you can do that by---

1. TV turned off 2. Press 'Power' and 'Input' buttons on the TV for more than 3 seconds.. You are now in the Adjustment mode
The letter P indicates picture and A indicates audio.
4. Use the 'Menu up or down' on the remote to select the item. 5. Write down the old value of the item before changing. 6. Use the 'Menu left or right' to change the data.
Please ask for any clarifications.
Please accept the solution if it helps.
Thanks Rylee

Sony rear projection tv model KP-53V15 turns on, have sound but no picture, after a while, picture comes on, but later goes out again, picture keeps coming and going. Where do I start looking?


Adjust Screen Volts (G2) of all 3 picture tubes and screen volt control knobs are on focus block located under speaker grills at front of TV.
Remove speaker front grille of TV, look for focus block that has 6 control knobs, 3 knobs are for focus and 3 for screen volts, increase volts by turning little bit control knobs of screen volts and this will solve your problem.

1986 tv won't turn on


Great TV you bought.
At this point I would say it might not even be worthy to get the TV fix due to the age unless you can do it yourself.
In my opinion you can save the money from the repair to buy a new TV.
Hope you do not upset with the messenger LOL.

Good Day, ladyluck5509;
It sounds like the TV is experiencing an auto focus problem. That in other words is a convergence problem, needing to replace the convergence IC's, chips. There is no known focus knob. If you are concern of shocking oneself, I would recommend that you seek a factory authorized service center for repair. Always, always get an estimate first.The normal/average cost for this repair should run between $350.00-450.00.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

Picture goes black


With a shop doing the repair they will almost always say the deflection PCB will need to be replaced which would be about 350.00 plus labor. I would suggest trying to solder the vertical output IC first as that is usually the cause on the mitsubishi rear projection or solder around the flyback one of the two.
