Have done a convergence adj. and all seems to be fine there. What is going on and how do I fix it. Thanks for the help.

Re: dark picture

Use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

I have a 10 year old Hitachi 53FDX01B TV. It was working fine until last night when I noticed that the picture contrast was very dark. I tried to adjust the picture using the TV's on-screen menu to no...

I'm not an expert in rear projection TV's but i know that the 3 CRT tubes have a verry high brilliance output so i would check the power of the brillance circuitry, could it be a defective OVER HEAT SENSOR that monitors the tubes keeping the voltage down ? becaus i know that they ave a verry sophisticated cooling system (some even uses cooling liquid)

Hope it helps!

Pictures very dark, Brightness all the way up. Contrast does not adjust

I have the same problem. I was able to temorarily fix the issue by taking the back cover off and blowing all of the dust out. But this only worked for two days. Now the problem is back. Did you fix the issue with your tv? Thanks.

Hitachi 53" rear projection is losing its picture.

If you are not experiencing any shift in colors, it sounds like the power supply is failing since this will affect all three colors.
