How can I connect my Desktop computer to my Hitachi 57F500 TV? I have an emachines desktop, running MS Win 7 connected from Monitor VGA port to DVI port on TV via Dynex DVI-VGA cable, but not getting any...


Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

We cannot get the color to align. It appears like there is a blue or yellow background around words


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Where do i get a new remote


You can get a replacement remote for your Hitachi 57F500 TV at the following site,
http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/prodthumbs.cfm?categoryid=46&ns=1&keyword=57F500&x=15&y=15

Click on the pictures of either remote for ordering instructions and price.

If you need something right now, you can get an universal remote, available at most
electronic stores, although it may not perform as well as a factory replacement.
It also may not work on your model and brand TV.

Couple of questions:  I have a Rear Screen Hitachi 50 something TV that I got from my late uncle, and want to find out the following: How can I tell which model I own? I assume the model number is...


A universal remote will allow you to access all the necessary functions, and depending on the remote that you plan on using, a lot of the time you can use the more advanced functions as well.
If you have the remote working, you can access the model number through the menu settings as well. Get to the generic menu, go to the very bottom of the list where you will see hardware settings or just settings, from there you will see an option that says either hardware information, or information or even just one that says about. If you click on that you can generally find the model number and serial number of the TV.
If you're using a generic "less expensive" universal remote the code for your TV will depend on the exact model number. And you'll have to crawl in behind the TV to get that information then, sometimes you can access the menu from the buttons along the front/side of the TV but not always (impossible to know for sure without knowing the model number of your TV). Sometimes you can fake the remote settings if you punch in the code for any Hitachi TV, guess at how old the TV is and find a number in a code that is about the same size as the TV.

Doubt about hitachi model 57f500


It is HDTV ready and supports the  1080i (HDTV) • 720p (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV) • 540p formats.
You can download the manual from: http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php

There should be buttons on the front that allow you to access menus, etc. (They may be behind a door or panel.)

Child Lock is on and I am second owner of tv with no code


This function will block out the picture and sound of the selected channel or video input.
It can also be used to keep the TV from being viewed for a scheduled time period that you set.
The code to enter the Locks feature is a four digit secret code number. The factory preset code is 0000.
Use the number buttons to select access code.

Use CURSOR G or H to highlight function and then press the SELECT button.
To change the access code number, select Change Access Code. Enter a new four digit key number you prefer.
Select CHANGE ACCESS CODE to change factory preset code (0000) to your preference.
When ENGAGE LOCK is selected, SET CHANNEL LOCK, SET INPUT LOCK, and SET FRONT PANEL LOCK can be set individually.
When SET CHANNEL LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for the chosen channel will be blocked out.
When SET INPUT LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for all video inputs and the picture and sound for channels 3, 4 will be
blocked out.
When FRONT PANEL LOCK is turned on, all buttons on the Front Panel will be deactivated, except the Power button.
When TV TIME LOCK is turned on (r TIME LOCK) you can set the BEGIN and END times (CURSOR E) and the TV
cannot be viewed during that time period (Set clock first). Use CURSOR G or H to highlight ONCE (TV will time out one time
only), DAILY (TV will time out every day), WEEKLY - SUN~WEEKLY - MON (TV will time out one time a week) or OFF (to disable
this function).
When MOVIE RATINGS is selected, you can block various types of movies and video tapes based on motion picture ratings. Picturein-
Picture will also be blocked automatically (see page 45).
When TV RATINGS is selected, various types of television programming based on a parental guide ratings will be blocked.
Picture-in-Picture will also be blocked automatically
If you forget your secret code, use the factory code 7777 to erase your key number. This will reset the secret code number back to the
factory preset 0000.
Press EXIT to quit the menu.
