Question about Hitachi 65S500 65" HDTV-Ready Rear Projection Television

Open Question

I have a 65 inch hitachi 65S500. Can I tip this

I have a 65 inch hitachi 65S500. Can I tip this unit 90 degrees and stand it on end during moving it or is there a way to detach the bottom section from the top to move it around a corner into a tight area? It would be nice to dissassemble it to move it but I do not want a mess getting it back together. Is it Modular?

SOURCE: HITACHI 65XWX20B - How to disassemble the cabinet?

The 65XWX20B comes apart in 2 pieces - there is a top half and a bottom half.

- The bottom half houses all of the electronics, projection lenses, etc. It is very heavy and should be moved with care.

- The top half is basically just the screen.

I have moved this Television multiple times, even up and down from a 3rd floor apartment!

- First remove the screws holding the top and the bottom, the important ones are on the sides of the TV.

- This is important, I suggest 3 people do this part: Slowly lift the top away from the bottom half of the TV, but -not- very far. There is small wiring harness that that attaches the top of the TV to the bottom to a circuit board. This must be unplugged by one person while the other 2 hold the top half of the TV slightly above the bottom half. Note carefully where this plugs in so that you can reassemble easily.

- Once this is disconnected the TV is much easier to move, although still quite heavy and bulky. Do not turn the TV on its side - keep it upright while moving.

Reverse this process to put it back together.

Once you have done it once it is quite easy.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Moving my TV

I had the same situation. You can't take it apart, but you can cut it in half!!! Take the rear panels off, disconnect the wiring (simple clips), cover the lenses (plastic wrap and elastics) and then a take a reciprocating saw! You will see the best line of attack. Moved the bottom half down first, put some Elmer's wood glue on it, then placed the top half back on. Waited for it to dry, reconnected and everything worked fine!!!

SOURCE: cant adjust the blue its all over screen its a

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

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

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

SOURCE: need to move a 57 inch hitachi rear screen proj TV

No, do not attempt this as you will damage the unit if you try to take it apart and reassemble it. They are not built for dis-assembly and re-assembly. They are easily damaged. Rather, rent a large industrial hand truck and use several straps to secure it to the hand truck and about three men to help you. It is about the only way to do it.

Be careful... there is a fragile mirror inside which can be broken if bumped abruptly.

How do i replace the plexiglass on the 65in hitachi, it was cracked while moving. Also where can i buy the plexiglass to replace the cracked one


According to Sears Parts Distribution, the panel (which unfortunately is not a piece of plexiglass) can be purchased at this website:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Hitachi-Parts/Television-Parts/Model-65S500/0505/0333200/50022581/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

at a price of $468.15

It may be worth investing perhaps in a new Mitsubishi DLP, which can cost as little as $999 at places like Costco. Though I did read that your particular TV has an excellent picture.

We have an approximately 6 year old Hitachi 65S500 TV that was damaged beyond repair from a power surge. We are currently in small claims court w/ our village in an attempt to seek damages. What would be...


Hello. Surfing this site 'cause mine's broke. But, maybe a non-technician can help just the same. If you're going to court, try asking some of the paralegals how values are determined for court cases. OR, what kind of depreciation the judge may use by taking the value at purchase less a percentage per year owned. I say ask paralegals because you'll find them in civil courts records departments (places like a register of deeds office). You could also try asking an insurance adjuster, but not anyone you do business with as they often use simple inquiries to blackmark you in the national insurance database sending your premiums up. Hope this helps!

Where to buy hitachi projection screen


First, I can tell you most of the Hitachi sets sell both inner and outer screens as a unit--most of the time it is the only way they are available.

Get me the exact model number and I will try to get you part number, cost, and place where it can be ordered if it is available.

If this is helpful rate this solution as I do this here for free.

I would like to know if I can use the DVI-HDTV input terminal to plug in my computer and use my Hitachi 65S500 as my monitor with a wireless keyboard and mouse.


Yes. You need to have a DVI connector on your PC for direct DVI-DVI connection or you can buy a DVI-VGA cables for around $25 bucks. Then, after connected, go into your display properties and adjust your settings. Hope that helped.
