Yes, You will need to replace the 2 convergence IC's. Hitachi part # CZ01341. Generic part # STK394-160E These are the upgraded replacement parts. Also look for any burnt resistors near these IC's.

My hitachi 60"ultravision tv has a double image at the top in blue and yellow. the magic focus has no impact. any ideas?


Pretty common failure with rear projection CRT sets.
Sounds like one of your convergence amp chips have gone out.
You can buy the chips from several vendors, or kits.
Do a search with your model number and "convergence amp chips". Shop around for the chips as they seem to be getting cheaper as this type of TV isn't as popular as they once were.
I've picked up several used Sony and Mitsubishi sets for nearly free that had this problem..

I purchased a tv repair kit and replaced the convergence ic chips to fix my convergence problem. put everything back together and now, no picture. I tried magic focus and it works great, the colors are...


As per statement, "the magic focus works great, the colors are bright and aligned" it means the tubes are working ..you need feed a signal to see the picture...the tv video goes muted without signal

Magic focus error Hitachi 51F500A


ok, you have more than 1 post for this set--this model uses two of the STK-392-110 OR 392-150 Convergence chips.

If magic focus will not adjust the picture both chips need to be replaced--about 13 dollars in parts if purchased on Ebay.

Green is not offered to be adjusted since it determines the geometry of the picture--red and blue are adjusted to it.

Let me know how much skill you have and I can tell you how to fix the set--it requires two things--getting at the chips and being able to unsolder and replace them--there may or may not also be some resistors around them that are now bad and need to be replaced.

most shops get 300 or more for this repair--total parts cost if you are able to do it yourself is under 30 dollars.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Magic focus works briefly, then the tv is out of alignment


You need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some of the convergence resistors. You can buy the parts online from various sources or you can get a complete kit with instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

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.
