Toni, you`ll need a tv tech for this problem, spark gaps need to be cleaned, crt sockets need to be cleaned and crt pins on all 3 crt`s need to be sanded, this is a common issue with this model set, good luck, BMW Rider

    toni, charges vary greatly depending on where you live, here in western Florida we would charge as follows, $65 service call,

    $95 labor & shop supplies, no tax because no parts should be needed, so $160 total, remember it may be more if you live in a large metro area because the cost of doing business there is higher, good luck, BMW Rider

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

Hitachi 53" rear projection is losing its picture.

If you are not experiencing any shift in colors, it sounds like the power supply is failing since this will affect all three colors.

What you're describing is convergence and the amps need to be replaced... IK04 and Ik05 are two STK392-110 and Hitachi suggests replacing them with the STK392-150's for greater reliability..
If you're not too capable in electronics this is one to leave for the professionals. But at least you can call around and ask what each shop charges for replacing the convergence amps in this unit...
Hope this helps.
