1 Answer

Hitachi Rear Projection

Sorry--I don't exactly know what I am doing yet.

TV is a Hitachi rear projection.

From what I have read on this site, it sounds like a have a convergence problem.

Colors are whacked out and shadowing issue.

Wanting to know if this could be caused by a lightning strike.

Lightning got my computer and it was just about 3 weeks later that I started having this problem with my TV.

Can anyone help?

Hi! Guy,
I don't think your problem was caused by lightning. It sound like defective convergence ICs. This must be checked and verified by a qualified service tech.

Your convergence ic's have to be replaced along with checking all the bias resistors for exact value. Easy for me! I don't know what your electronics background is?

Hitachi 50 rear projection

Just curious... since the Hitachi 50UX57B projection TV does not have any lamps in it, exactly which "lamp" did you replace? Did you actually replace the entire blue CRT itself?
