    Checked with Andrews Electronics = STK392-110 does not cross to -150 or -180, only to -110T (Tosh) & STK394-160E ...

    And generics are not recommened at all due to shorter life span....................T.

The fact that you used the term "magic focus" tells me you have a Hitachi projection set. When the colors no longer line up on a Hitachi projection TV, it means that most likely one of the convergence output IC's has shorted out. Sometimes a shorted convergence output IC will burn up a low value resistor too. I have also seen a convergence IC crack loose from the board and burn up 3 low-value resistors. If your set is using the STK392-110 IC's, it is probably a good idea to go ahead and replace both IC's with the newer upgraded STK392-150 IC's. The output IC's should be resoldered / replaced and the circuits checked and realigned by a qualified tech familiar with Hitachi projection sets.

Picture quality


Does the unit have a flash or auto focus function? Check your menu. Some of the newer projection TV's have a auto focus function that may correct the problem.
