Question about Hitachi 53UDX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

Canon's misaligned and bad lines thru lower-center of picture

Someone gave me the tv, and said they thought it needed about a $100 repair, but i'm not so sure. Overall, physicall it's in good condition, but it has a picture problem.

First, it looks like a 3-D movie without using the glasses. Second, it has some pretty bad lines going vertical across the lower-center portion of the picture. Enough to make it totally unwatchable.
Is this something that would be worth fixing? What's the problem, and what will it cost me? Would it be better to just get rid of it?

Cant get the Multipoint red/blue set right


Most likely your convergence circuit needs repair, there are 2 large IC chips with heat sinks (labeled STKxxx -XXX) and possibly depending on model a resistor or fuse may have went with it. 95% of the time this is all it is. It could cost $300-400 to have someone repair it.

Definitely sounds like you have a bad CCD. Good news for you though, this particular model has been recognized by Canon to have a faulty CCD and will repair or replace your Canon A95 free-of-charge.

From Canon website:

"U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST).

Explain to them you have a bad CCD on your Canon A95 digital camera and that you are interested in having it serviced by them under the recall.

Good luck from darntoothysam.com!

Line going thru the tv


Josh, When you say a line going through your TV is it a line from left to right or top to bottom? Is there a picture present and this is a line imposed on the picture or just a line by itself? Let me guess, you have no picture just a horizontal line (from left to right) across the middle of the screen. If so that is collapse of the vertical deflection and most likely caused by failure of the vertical IC and possibly linked to some bad caps in theat circuit as well. It's not an expensive repair, just find a good reputable shop. You might also mention, or if they ask, that your unit is a lighbox. Meaning that when they go to repair it the insides of the unit separate from the cabinet for easier access.. Good Luck Bill

Distorted Color and geometry of Picture


I've posted this solution several times but here goes. Try setting up the convergence through the menu by accessing the convergence setup menu. If this fails to work you have a bad digital convergence box and need a tech to replace it. About $60 to $100 fix.
