    No this did not help. Just wanting to know if there is an adjustment on the contrast inside that is an easy adjustment.

    This did not help, It seemes like the contrast is dark but it is at 100%. Do you have any other thoughts. Thanks

Tv suddenly started being blurry with red double images real bad in top half of screen. its a hitachi ultrascan hd about 10 yrs old.

You need the convergence ICs replaced they are soldered in so its very technical , a repair shop will charge between $230 and $400 to replace them. you can try the autofocus or manual adjustments, but probably need the ICs and possibly a few resistors too.
(2)STK392-110 or kit # X480293 comes with 2 ICs and some resistors

Rear projection HD Hitachi Ultravision always has greenish tint

This is what you're going to do, Turn on the Tv and go to the service manual, if the green tint is still there, you have a defective dmd board, but if it's no there, then you have an issue with your video board

Red Alignment problem on a Hitachi 51inch rear projection tv

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png

Solution for the Hitachi 50V715. I contacted Hitachi and they told me there is a problem with the color engine with this and other Hitachi models. They will replace the part for free, but first I need to take it to a repair shop to verify the problem and I have to pay labor. Not too bad considering the cost of the engine.
