Before doing anything try upgrading the software first and see if that cures the problem. Call 1-800-HITACHI to get the latest version sent to you and then just follow the instructions. There is a port on the back of that unit where you will insert the MMC or SD card they send you and the update commands are available in the customer menu...
Good Luck!

Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence

You must have the original remote to do complete convergence adjustments. Remote method: Press MAGIC FOCUS button on front panel to start the magic focus. When magic focus is running, press MAGIC FOCUS again. STOP should appear onscreen. Immediately press RECALL or STATUS on the remote (must be pressed before STOP vanishes). The set is now in DCAM (Digital Convergence Adjustment Mode). Manual method: Remove the front grill and access panel or reach around from the back and press the little pushbutton located in the front left corner of the PC board, next to the Digital Convergence Module.
Once in DCAM, the remote buttons STATUS selects green, 0 selects red and ANT selects blue. 2,4,5 and 6 move the cursor and the thumbstick makes the corrections.Make all necessary corrections and then press PIP MODE. The words ROM WRITE? appear onscreen. Press PIP MODE again to store settings. When green dots appear, press MUTE to return to convergence pattern. Press PIP MODE (ROM WRITE? appears again) and then press PIP CH. This will Initialize the internal sensor data positions. When INIT finishes, press POWER on the TV and convergence is complete.

Power button Flashes

For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.

Magic Focus does not work.

Convergence issues usually resolved by changing convergence output amplifier IC's.....Original STK392-110 should be replaced
with upgrade Stk394-160E Hitachi part # CZ 01341,change both
for reliability.....check B+ feed resistors for over-heating....T.
