Hitachi 53SDX89BA Projection TV

My big screens picture is not focused.  Its like it has 2 pictures with excess of green a purple.  I tried the magic focus and it only does the M and then a 3 or 4 appears and the bottom of the screen with the picture still the same.  I also tried the center mode with the cross that is suppose to be white with no results.  The green or purple will not center.  At times when I turn the TV on its in focus and the picture is fine, the picture goes the double look. All cable connections are good. Cleaned the lens.  Any suggestions?  Thank You.

Re: Hitachi 53SDX89BA Projection TV

CRT lenses need to be aligned. Would recommend having a profesional technician do it. Easy fix for a CRT profesional but quite technical for the homeowner. Before fixing it, unplug. open up back go in and look at the front of the tubes with a bright flash light. If you see a brown square under the lenses you might just want to upgrade instead of fix. Brown square is CRT burn.

Big black square in middle of screen picture top to bottom about 36 " wide good audio and picture 6" on right and left side displaying.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Red,green and blue lines across screen

I f these lines are slightly diagonal and they all showed up at the same time. you probaly have an open resistor in the ABL circuit. since your set is 13 yrs old, I would not put a penny into it.
You might take the front grill cover off and the panel behind it and find the little black box with 6 little controls 3 are for focus 3 are for screen turn the screen ones ever so slightly counter clock wise. the control in the middle is the green screen adjustment. If the green line goes away try the one labeled r for red and b for blue.

You have a defective light engine and Hitachi is aware of it. Here's what you need to do...recently went through this. Call Hitachis customer relations department at 800-654-7013 and tell them you have a defective light engine. At first, they will act like they've not heard of this problem but they are all too familiar with it. They will give you the names of some certified dealers in your area. Once the tech comes out and confirms the problem, call Hitachi back at the 800 # I listed and they will call and confirm with the dealer that you have a bad light engine. They will send a brand new light engine to the dealer (Hitachi will cover the cost $1500) and the dealer will call you to come out and install.

Here's the kicker, if you're not still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the expensive part but you will have to pay the install. Our install was $400 but others on this site have paid around $200. If you're still under warranty, Hitachi will cover the part and install.

Please do not let any dealer tell you that you have to pay for this part. Hitachi has not recalled this part but they are replacing it to you for just pay the install. Also, deal only with their customer relations at the 800# I listed.Good Luck:)

How do I adjust the picture, I lost my remote..

Sorry Bud you cant. An original remotes available at or 1800-remotes for about $61.00 + shipping. Without seeing a picture Im not even sure if thst will help ya man. If you wanna try to see if an alighnment will help then get the remote. I would advise you against doing any sort of technical alighnments as this set has high voltage around inside even afterv its been disconnected for a while. Good Luck
