Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitchai 53UWX10B colors dont line up.

Started witht the red being about 1/2 inch off to the left on the left side of the screen. progressed to being off 1"on the L side and 1/2" on R, wide on each side. I tried to do a manual convergence but it would only move so far. I pulled the front panal and reset it by pressing the little blue button. but nothin. now the blue is all outta whack. Im thinkin the next step is a hammer. Is this a convergence board issue or what?  I inspected the boards and cant find anything that looks burnt.. any suggestions would be appretiated??

    Right side of screen is fine. Left side has a red "shadow" out of convergence. Magic Focus does not function. The letters don't disappear from the outside inward, which they should.

    Wondering if we should fix it or get a new TV.

    I have the same problem with the red ghost. Starts in the top left and now all images have a red color ghost about 1/4 inch around the images. We have cleaned the lens and the board and all the magic focus does not work. Help I paid alot of money for this TV, It is only 5 years old. 3 months out of warranty and the thing acts up. What is the solution?

    I also have the same problem. The convergence on the red gun is off about 1" to the right on both sides of the screen. The center is ok. Manual convergence adj. does not work. It will move up & down but not left or right. I have cleaned the lens and that didnt help.

    I have the same issue the convergence on the left side is off and everything on the right side is fine. Do I need the IC chips or should I get the whole board. Or is there something else that I am missing?

Sorry to say that it is a permanent damage of your monitor screen. Usually you can do nothing. But if you want to change the monitor screen, you have to visit a monitor & television specialist.
Cost will be 1/4 of a new monitor.

48 inch toshiba with color alingment problem


Thanks for this forum.

I have a Toshiba 48" rear projection TV which started to show red and green lines on the left side of the screen and have also started affecting the left-hand focus of the image shown on the screen. I have had this TV for 14 years and had a projection adjustment done once before.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Good Day,

Welcome to the world of having a convergence circuit problem. There two things you can do; get it repaired by a Factory Authorized Service Center or repair it your self. Purchase KIT 10 from B&D Enterprises, 1-800-458-6053. The kit has everything you will need except soldering equipment and experience. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Yes my freind it is a convergence problem. There are two stand up IC's standing upright about a 2"X3" square. they start with STK. You should just replace them both if you have any solid state repair experience. If you dont, please stay safe and call in a trained tech to assist you with this repair.
