    Red and green have great alignment, blue however is causing a ghostly shadowlike effect to the right of the objects on the screen. When using magic focus, red and green align properly, blue is nowhere near alignment mark. Just started doing this last few days.

Solution:
Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in but stationary.
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus 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 should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com.
They have put together a kit for the Hitachi TV sets.
The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

 parts mounted to largest heatsink in set.
2)With remote, perform convergence alignment as needed in
 servicer mode.( skilled technician,usually)
3)Let me know by rating what you think....T.

I was given a tv with a color problem. The main colors are yellow, blue and red. There are blue shadows behind the yellow words. Is this a major problem?


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Hi, could use a little more info, if your seeing red, blue, or green colors overlapping the image then your convergence IC`s have failed, if thats not what it`s doing please reply with more info about the symptom, video-tek

Color is mostly yellow and blue with double images


you have lost the convergence IC`s in your set, this really isn`t a diy repair unless you are very proficient in un-soldering and re-soldering components, once replaced there will be an alignment procedure as well that will require the service manual also, if you have more questions feel free to ask away, video-tek
