    That gets me into convergence but now i need in other menu for geometry. The main problem with tv is crooked picture. It leans from left to right downard about 2 inches. I watched tech go to this other menu and know what to do if I can get there.
    Thanks again
    Until I get picture straight it seems convergence is a waste of time.

With the set turned on and using the original remote enter:

0, 6, 2, 5, 9, 7 and then hit Status on the remote--this will take you into the convergence mode(tech)

Instructions on the screen will tell you hit menu to adjust(you use the cursors to adjust) and Status to navigate the grid(2,4,8,6 will navigate)---when you are done hit Status 2 times and then scroll down to SAVE--save as you go.

These sets may take a lot of time to adjust--and if you have HD the set has to be adjusted separate in the HD mode.

Let me know if you have problems--I am here to help--a vote here would be nice.

    You can adjust geometry in convergence mode--just cover lens for red and blue and select in beginning adjust green--there is no separate mode---when you enter convergence mode you can select what to adjust.

Picture too large for screen


It appears that on this television you can only adjust the picture size when you are using the twin picture feature. You must adjust the picture size with your other remote control. Since I do not know whether you are connected to a cable box or a satellite tv box or a blu ray player or a DVD player I cannot be very specific. On your other remote control you should had an hd zoom button, aspect, format, ratio, #, or etc. Those buttons change the picture size. The other factor determining picture size is the resolution the equipment connected to your tv is set to. This tv supports 1080i but you should also try setting the connected equipment to 720p or 480p or 480i. Also the connected equipment may be connected to your tv in two places so make sure you are on the correct selection using the tv video button on the Sony remote.

My hitachi tv's picture is distorted red and green like a 3-d pic


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV 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, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • 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.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Red and Yellow blurred picture


I had the same problem this week. I tried the convergence thing but it was impossible to fix. I still needed the repairman. He changed two convergence units ($325, parts and labor). Then the tv was still doing the same thing. We had to adjust the convergence and now everything is perfect. You will need your converter

Picture size on HD is distorted.


You did not say what kind of repair work was done on your set but suspect that is was a failure in the convergence circuit. That said I also suspect that aftermarket IC's where installed that are not up to par with the originals. Good Quality IC's and undoing the adjustment already made should cure your problem with minimal labor time involved. To do a Full Convergence Alignment will cover up the problem but the IC's won't last followed by replacement again with quality parts and another full alignment.

Convergence On Panasonic PT-47WX54j


You dont need codes for the service menu you need to repair the convergence circuit. If the lines wont line up in the customer menu they wont line up in the service menu either. Do you know how to solder? If so we can fix this yourself with a little instruction. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman. A good repairman will run you $300-$500 depending on your area. Let me know what you want to do.

My convergence is offline


the convergence needs to be adjusted for 480i then also enter into the 1080i and adjusted for that format. You would need the service manual for the parameters or you could severely mess your set up. You can purchase the full service manual for your set and get it emailed to you instantly by going to this link, they also offer free tech assistance if you have any difficulty when you purchase a manual. Here is the link.

Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

Picture too large


Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
Some Motorola Cable receivers need to be set up in the menu to go to a wide screen or zoom mode when an analog signal is detected. There may be a format button on the remote.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

Yes, you have a size problem you have horizontal and vertical size. Either its' in the service mode or somewhere on the set, with this set it's probably in menu. Must be set too high. I will look for menu codes! Is this an Akai or Panasonic set?
