Question about Hitachi 53FDX20B 53" Rear Projection Television
Hi...Have a Hitachi 53FDX20B...manufactured July 2002. Color convergence is going--started to in October...getting worse b the month...blitzes in and out of synch , especially at start up for about 15 minutes...and the Blue color is now always "off" to the right slightly, causing a now permanent blue shadow. Tried the "magic focus" many times...shows either a "4" or "5" after finished, but seems to do very little if anything. Also has a slight "burning electronics" smell coming from the area where the 3 bubs are when first turned on for a few minutes(I took off the bottom back cover to investigate). All 3 bulbs look ok--a little dusty, but ok. Not sure if I need a new amp, new bulbs, both, or something else. Thanks!
Your TV most likely has a convergence failure. ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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 directiColor convergence "whacked out"/blue shadow to rig - 0667c5f.pngnvergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
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.
