Asked at earlier date about convergance issue. very strange, sometimes we turn on set and within 30 seconds, picture is perfect, other times longer. any chance there is a factory reset on t.v. that would put it back when picture is clear?

Re: convergance problem on hitachi 51

Is this a CRT projector or other?
If its a CRT you seem to have a power supply failure hat gets worse when it warms up. no amount of resetting would help that. 

If its not a CRT projector I dobut its a convergence issue but rather poor cabling causing the color to fall out of sync.

Do I need to replace the bulb or is there a more serious issue that needs attention?

The issue is within the optical engine of the projector, the polarized glass are starting to shed its coating, thus causing the yellow effect.

I have an optima hd180 that will not power up. The projector was indicating a bad bulb, so I replaced that with a new one. Now it still will not power up and the fan does not come on either.

Problem w/ OEM bulb, it causes a lot of issues from my experience. Your ballast might have gone bad, hopefully it's just that. Check the voltage output of the ballast, make sure you're getting the proper amount.

Can't find settings button

OK, in all seriousness, have you got working batteries in the remote, and have you tried pushing each button in turn, yet?

Because after 10 seconds of googling and 30 seconds of scrolling (through , found near the top of , which was the first non-sponsored result on the search page), I can see that your remote has a reasonably clearly marked and utterly industry-standard "MENU" button, above and to the right of the main oval-shaped collection of navigation buttons at the lower end of the panel. That will almost certainly do what you need.

Hitachi projector cp-s318 and the pictures give off a red tint.


Make sure the Computer Input is set to VGA, Computer, or RGB (depending on which projector model you have). Go through the menu settings of your projector.

Hope this helps

Viewsonic PJ556d shuts down after 30-60 seconds

My solution sounds dumb, I had the same issue. Took the lamp cover off the bottom. The screws were loose holding in the lamp. Maybe they heat and expand and eventually work their way out and the lamp doesn't make good contact. Just tightened mine up, the unit would power off after 45 minutes prior. Been on now for 5 hours, no trouble.

HItach cp-s860 problem

I have the same Hitachi CP-S860 and have found the problem is with the convergence on the left and right sides of the picture. The one I am working on has a bad ghosting problem also - you can really see the ghosting when the MENU is on the screen. The center convergence is OK. Following Pics show Circle / Cross pattern - 1st pic the red, green and blue are turned on - 2nd pic shows green and blue on only. I do not have the service manual for this set so I do not know the convergence procedure on this one. I have mostly been repairing NEC, Sanyo, Panasonic and Christie LCD & DLP Projectors.
