Question about Hitachi 43FDX20B 43" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Hitachi 43fdx20b I recently bought a used hitachi 43fdx20b tv. everything seems to work great but the color in the picture is off. it seems that all colors are there but the red and green seems to be the colors that are off, all others come in fine. in the absense of red and green in the picture there is a great picture. i have used dvd tests to try to fine tune the color with all of the controls such as tint color contrast etc. any advise would be greatly appreciated

    I played with the settings but it still has that reddish tent. Is there an ideal setting for color, contrast. tint etc. ? Maybe it is the projection? Thank you.

I purchased a tv repair kit and replaced the convergence ic chips to fix my convergence problem. put everything back together and now, no picture. I tried magic focus and it works great, the colors are...

As per statement, "the magic focus works great, the colors are bright and aligned" it means the tubes are working need feed a signal to see the picture...the tv video goes muted without signal

Color red seems to be more prominant...than other

I've had this problem with my projection TV recently. I would say your lens/lamp is to blame. It might be time to change it, depends on the last time it was changed, most of the time, the TV will tell you that it needs to be changed, but not always. I think your best bet is the TV lamp.

Hitachi Model 43FDX20B Pink and Green Colors only

The convergence IC's you speak of are always mounted side by side and use the same #'s and are mounted on big metal heat sinks . Most start with STK392-??? . Also you may have bad resistors that are discolored and need changed as well . Some sets are protected by fuses but don't look like the typical glass fuses. They are pico fuse which could be green or yellow in color but look like resistors but do not have the color bands . Replacing the board could require a total convergence alignment. If you decide to take to a shop your avg. cost could be $250 to $300. If you do it yourself IC's and resistors or fuse would run around $50 to $70 bucks . Don't by the $9.95 IC's as they do not hold up as well . They should cost $20 to $25 apiece . Good luck

Hitachi Model 43FDX20B

Convergence IC's are at locations IK04 and IK05. There are some resistors that will be burnt up on the board as well. Replacement IC's are stk392-150, and are easily purchased, even off ebay. For the resistors you may have to get the location numbers and research the value. If you need the resistor values you can email me and I will get you the info.

Pictue is dark as hell

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
