Question about Hitachi 60SDX88B 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red deflection is way off, picture scrunched into top right corner

The green and blue works fine but the red picture is bent way up into the top right corner. I know electronics but have not got a manual. Last problem was picture shrinking into center and then a snapping sound. TV would sometimes shut off. Cleaned CRT HV caps (rubber ones) and applied HV "glue", waited a day and it seemed ok.

So I do not think the problems are related and am looking for help with this red ctr problem.

Call 800-648-6657 order part number CZ01341. This is the convergence output ic. You will need to replace the red convergence output ic IK04.

We went to auto focus on our tv. It shook wildly the when the picture came back the picture is bent. When looking inside the tv the green and red are being projected bent at the top and bottom. Please...

You need to replace the convergence IC stk392 -110...2 resistors and a fuse. located in the deflection board of your tv and after you can press auto focus and the picture will be normal.

Screen lookes like colores separating

Here's all I find regarding bad convergence from the techrepairCD:
RCA ~ITC222 D52W20~Convergence bad~~~ITC222~Replace leaky DL032 on
deflection board~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20Y ATC221~Convergence goes out/bowed after on for a few
minutes~~~ATC221~Problem may be on the deflection board. Was unable to
pinpoint where in this case.~~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Convergence way off after replacing small signal
board~EEPROMS were transferred over to new board~~~IK210 was
defective..transfer the new EEPROM back over.~Remember on these
sets*when replacing the SSB* if there is a small P on corner of
screen*hold volume on remote for 8 seconds after it reaches minimum.~~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~Can not align blue convergence* bottom really
bowed* possibly either color after replacing SSB.(Or no auto
convergence.~(Service menu: turn power off for 30 seconds* press vol dn
and ch dn* simultaneously for 8 seconds* set turns on with service menu
options)~~ITC222~In service menu* select convergence. If sensor
calibration was performed when convergence was too far off* it will not
alighn.~Get crosshatch with straight lines* perform sensor calibration*
then attempt convergence alignment again. Be sure to store settings*
then do sensor calibration again.~You must get a green flash of the
screen after sensor cal and a check in the box. RED flash indicated
convergence settings are too far off~~~~

RCA~D52W20BYX1 ITC222~no convergence correction~~~ITC222~LP650
(259271) DP670 (259246) & RP632 (259564) 4.7 3W on convergence power
supply board~~~~~~

Sony KP-53S65. Only have the green lens working. Blue and Red out. Everything else seems OK. What's going on with it?


If you have a picture, but only in green, I would try turning up the drive for the red and blue guns. They have probably changed and need a boost. This does mean that the CRTs are dying and may not have too much time left.

To turn up the drive first remove the back cover on the bottom. You will have to work on this unit live so be very careful and do not touch anything other than what I tell you.

Look at the space above the main circuit board. Somewhere across the beam supporting the CRTs you will see a square box with 6 controls (shafts). You can locate the box if you follow the wires from the flyback to the box. The flyback is located on the right rear corner and produces the high voltage. It will have 4 large red rubber wires coming out of it. Three go to the focus divider block (the box in question) then they go on to the crts (red, green, blue).

Once you locate the focus divider look at it closely. The focus controls are on top and the drives are on the bottom. They should be marked red, green and blue. You want to turn up the red and blue. Tune a picture with as much black as possible. While watching it turn up the red until you see a red tint or streak then turn down until it just disappears. Do the same with the blue. You may want to touch up the green also.

If the set is working OK your picture should look normal.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

Ok i have a 47in samsung hd tv today it started acting funny the picture and colors arent right like there a blue red and green colors its like the main picture is being copied 3x times once by each color...

this issue is caused by a failure in the convergence ic's and possibly a bad resistor and fuse in the circuit if you need instrution on how to change I may be able to help though it is kinda tech heavy

TV Has grean red and Blue lines going through it.

Yes this can be fixed. It is a common problem caused by a failure of the "convergence" circuit. Sometimes in this particular set, just a bad solder connection can cause this (though no shop will admit it). Other times its just a simple part on the Deflection board. The repair should run around $300

Picture(Color Convergence)

Go to menu look for convergence on menu if it is not on menu then you have a open fuse located next to Flyback Transfomer on deflection board.

No picture, just red-blue-green lines through the middle of the screen very faint.

The PT-53WX54 is a standard projection set and does not have a bulb. It has 3 separate picture tubes. If you have lost the picture completely, not even on-screen menu, then something has stopped working in your set. It could be a video processor, vertical deflection or possibly a convergence problem. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the Panasonic projection sets.
