  • jen1984 Jan 30, 2008

    We recently moved our hitachi 53UDX10B projection TV about 2 ft. and the magic focus (which is automatic) is not setting right. It skips the blue color focus completely and does not seem to do a thing to fix it. The screen has a 3-D image with the green color forming a sort of back shadow on images. Also, on the left side, the alignment seems to be a bit off. From the research I've done so far, I think it may be a convergence IC's problem, I'm not sure. I live in a small town where the repair shop won't touch my TV. I have however checked to see if any wiring was loose and it all seemed secure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello,



    I can't believe I found this website. We have the same problem. Our projection tv is about 5 years old and we have had no problems until now. The left side of the picture is showing red double images but the right side is perfect, so annoying to watch this. Our tv is Hitachi #53SBX10B. Can you help us out? Barbara

  • LN1220 Mar 10, 2008

    We have a Hitachi 53UDX10B and on the top left side of the screen is the red line like everyone else seems to have. At first we thought it was our cable connections and have disconnected/reconnected, bought new cables, tried to make adjustments. etc. without any response. I am to understand it is the convergence IC's. Are these expensive? Do they require service or can we do it ourselves?

Solution:

Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

  • Screen looks 3D
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Hitachi 50v500, we just put in a new lamp, now the picture on the screen is slightly doubled, what do I do?


Here is what I suggest----look at lettering and or put the mode to 4X3 which is smaller left and right.

Look at the edges of that picture or lettering on screen---this model sometimes has a ghosting where images have a slight shadow, like with rabbit ears.

If this is the case there is a way with the remote to CORRECT IT.

I have the information--confirm if slight ghosting around letters--it can be white or any color.

I have seen this before.

Hitachi 53UWX10BA HDTV with convergence problem for blue


No there are no quick fix options for this fault. The convergence amplifiers operate similar to a high power audio amplifier, so if there is an impairment anywhere in the system, it will result in distorted audio, or in the case of television convergence amplifiers, a color won't align. The convergence power pacs need to be replaced and the out of tolerance precision resistors located near the power pacs need to be carefully checked and replaced as necessary.

It is also possible that there are root faults that cause the amplifiers to go bad which include bad connections or a bad digital control module. This repair is possible for anyone having basic electronics knowledge and soldering skills.
