Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

When doing Magic Focus on Hitachi 51SWX20B I get Error 3, and the Process Stops. I have a Hitachi 60SDX88BA that also has a blue semi circle at the top of the screen. I have run magic focus and it stops and flashes a 3 in the bottom right corner. Has anyone found a fix for this? Hitachi's customer service response was less than helpful.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence 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 commonWhen doing Magic Focus on - 0667c5f.pngbr />

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

Your convergence ic`s have failed and the set is telling you by showing the error codes on the screen, either 2 or 3 stk chips and possibly a few burnt resistors will have to be replaced, only you know if you can handle this type of job, requires soldering & un-soldering equipment, service info, heat sink transfer and oem stk`s do not buy the elcheapo 9.99 ic`s from the internet, they do not hold up,if u need more info ask away, video-tek

Green is way out of alignment


Need to have convergence board rebuilt, do not adjust anything this will make the technician charge more for the additional labor of having to "undo" your "repair" leave it for a professional technician, as it can be dangerous. we would charge at least $400 this would include readjustment.
