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??

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works

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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

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.

Hitachi 53UWX10B 53 convergence color lines dont move w\RC

After replacing IC's, double check the solder connections for bridging or no solder on pin(s). Check all bias resistors (low ohmage). Make sure you have your VCC voltage, should have a positive/negitive voltage of about 24 v on each IC and +38v.Also, make sure all cables are plugged in and fully seated

Note: All bias resistors are very low ohms eg; 3.3, 1.8, 2.2 make sure correct value, very important.
If can't adjust still CPU digital convergence board (near ic's) shielded may be defective.

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.
