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

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.

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!!!

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
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.

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.

best advice I can tell you at this point is to go to tvrepairkits.com
and order the complete convergence kit for your model of TV set, no need to
search and order multiple parts from different sources and pay multiple
shipping fees! The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC’S , not those cheap
aftermarket or china made IC’S full pictorial
directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico
fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem
with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most
cases GOOD LUCK!!!
