This set uses two convergence chips--both need to be replaced and the set adjusted----If you know how to do good soldering I can tell you where to look and what usually needs to be replaced---Parts cost should be less than 20 dollars if you buy the parts on Ebay---

Most shops charge 300 or more for this type of repair---I just returned home from a set with this type of problem---in home total repair 250 total---If you cannot do the repair I suggest you shop around and find someone who can do it in your home---any good repair person can do this in about 1 hour---I am getting ready right now to do another one near where I live.

My TV is the Hitachi model 51UWX20B and tried using magic focus to line up red color. Picture looks like 3D with red off center. When using magic focus it gets to the red phase and it shows the number 5...


You need to replace the STK ICs which are Convergence ICs STK392-110 use 120s or 150s
also check the small ohm resistors around ICs . They are Big Black ICs and will have part number on them ,should be located on the Right hand side of Chassis .

I need to line up my colors and magic focus does not work.


If picture looks 3d in some way you have a convergence problem.

This set should use two of the STK-392-150 CHIPS FOR THIS.

The repair can be a do it yourself one if you have some skill. Magic focus only attempts to adjust at about 18 points on the screen.

Parts cost will be under 25 dollars. The repair consists of getting at the chips (2) and replacing both--on EBAY they will cost under 15 dollars (I fix sets and use a seller there).

If I can help make a comment here and if this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

the convergence IC`s and associated resistors have to be replaced, do not repeatedly push magic focus or the alignment after the parts change out will take longer which of course means higher repair bill, good luck
