The red will not align up in our Hitachi model 51UWX20B with magic focus done automatiaclly or manually. When the red first started to go out of line we did magic focus and it worked. then after turning...

You have a bad convergence board. You will have to remove the convergence board. If I remember,this board also has the flyback transformer mounted on the same board. It is quite complicated to pull this board. You will need to use different colored permy markers to remember how to reconnect the cables and connectors. The ICs you will replace are the STK-392-110 and STK-392-150. You will resistors that are low ohms (under 10 ohms) at two watts. They may be 1.5, 1.8, 2.2, 2.2, 2.7,3.3,3.9, and 4.7 ohms. For a full detailed instructions and photos see the website, Be sure to have your model number handy and follow the instructions on this website. I have repaired many TVs using this site. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Magic focus works briefly, then the tv is out of alignment

You need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some of the convergence resistors. You can buy the parts online from various sources or you can get a complete kit with instructions from

Yellow and blue color ruins total picture on 50" tv,can't get rid


I'm no expert, but I think that you have a problem with the convergence of the 3 color guns. I've been working on a similar problem. As a first step, have you tried "Magic Focus?" The Magic Focus button for the Hitachi 53UDX10B is at the left of the small front panel controls that also include your RCA composite and SVideo connectors. Let the set warm up for about 20 minutes (as recommended by the user guide), and then press the Magic Focus button. When you press the Magic focus button, the set will auto align the 3 color guns. If this doesn't fix your problem, unplug the TV for at least 4 hours and try again.
