Question about Hitachi 57G500 57" TV

1 Answer

Double Picture We have a ultravision digital hdt big screen TV. Yesterday, when we turned it on, it has a double picture. All of the words are double and even the pictures are double with a green color to the part that is double or like a shadow. This is on every channel. We have a dish. We have turned this off and then back on. All the indicator lights are on as if everything was normal. Any suggestions? We would like to try and avoid expensive on repair charges if there is something we can try ourselves first? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

My zenith sentry tv has a double image on the words that come on screen. The people are clear but all wording has double images

Double images are technically called Ghosts, occures due to the setting and direction on the antena. You have to reorient your antena, in such a way that Ghosts disappeares from your screen. The reson for this fault is not with the TV, as it gets a direct transmission signal, and a reflected signal of the same, reflected from near or far objects, like tall buldings, hills and so on. The signals, the orginal and the reflected, will be processed by the TVs internal ciiruit, and the first will appear as strong picture, followed by the second, a weak picture, will be seemed as an image of the first one, just on the right side [view point] of your TV.
You just adjust the position and height of your antena, looking the picture, where there is minimum Ghost level is. No other repair should be done to your TV, as it is perfect, and you just give it only direct signal path. OK.

Green and red colors seperated

Other than the menu, does the picture look ok? Does the menu just stay there and not go away?

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

Hitachi Ultravision Digital TV dark picture

Looks like

1. A Cold solder in the Video Output stage power supply.

2. A bad Electrolytic Capacitor in the above Video Output stage.

I generally do not waste time in attempting to locate faulty capacitors. There will be only 6-8 pf them in the above stage / section,m and the klot of them would collectivelyt not cost more than 3-4 $ equivalent, in india. Just blindly replace the lot, and the set is ready in 30 mins.

Dunno how much they will cost in your country. Try to look for a 100mfd, 160V Capacitor. Close your eyes and replace. generally does the trick.

Double picture

Can you give more details? What do you mean by Double picture? Do you have 2 pictures side by side or One on top of another? Or is it like a shadow behind the main Image? If it is a shadow (Ghosting), check your Antenna - connection, direction, etc.
