Red Alignment problem on a Hitachi 51inch rear projection tv

I have a Hitachi 51inch rear projection tv that the red is out of alignment. If I press the Magic Focus button, it pauses on Red with 3 bars then I get a Green 5 in the lower right hand corner. Using the manual alignment does not work either.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,PioneerRed Alignment problem on a Hitachi 51inch rear pro - 2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.

Needs convergence amps replaced. Sometimes resistors burn and need to be replaced. This repair requires soldering/desoldering equip. and a trained eye, but usually can be done for 175.00-325.00 at a reputable service center. Good luck, Russmann.
