Picture jumps or shakes

I have a Hitachi 50UX58B V81023108, about 12 years old. The picture looks great but jumps or shakes. Any ideas what might be causing this. Does not do this all the time but starting to do this more and more.

My 1993 50in. hitachi ultravision has no picture but still has sound. What can be the problem? A hitachi rep. told me to see if my dvd player shows a picture but I still don't have a picture.


If your unit is truly a 1993 model I'm amazed that it still turns on at all. Usually projection units quit after about 10 to 12 years and are worn out. Judging by the age of the unit the most likely problem area is the high voltage section. I have a tip at which explains how to troubleshoot this section and I have a tip at which explains how to remove and replace a circuit board if it becomes necessary to change out the deflection board.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!

I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Jumpy picture

ck for dry solder joints if you take rear cover off and just lightly tap on convergence ic heat sink if the tv jumps then you have to remove the board and resolder the joints. also if you have a magnifying glass ck all solder joints on board when it is out

Red color on screen is warped on my LCD projector TV.

Normally the oily fluid coming from a picture tube, is the coolant from the tube. It's very combustible and have been known to start a fire. You have two problems in this set. A leaking blue picture tube. A convergence circuit that needs repaired. Call a local servicer and see if they will give you an estimate over the phone. It's time to start looking for a new digital set. Good Luck.
