Red shadow on TV Screen Hitachi HDTV

We have a Hitachi 46" TV, about 3 years old, and all of a sudden everything is in duplicate/triplicate. There is a red and a yellow "shadow" outline to the right of each thing on the screen.

Your convergence is bad. You need to have convergence amplifiers changed.

Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and Red shadow on TV Screen Hitachi HDTV - 2c07611.pngeplaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you just described is a convergence issue, Now most tv's have a auto focus button on them or the remote try giving that a push (if your tv has it) I cannot go by the model above because fixya has categorization errors or people select the wrong tv.

But this is a convergence issue if the focus button does not take care of it your going to need repair.

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.
