Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red duplicate image outline of picture.

I just got this TV from a family member. I hooked it up and it worked great. Two weeks later I returned to my apartment and it looked like I took my 3-D glasses off during a 3-D movie. I tried the auto focus and the red light plus sign will not line up with the blue and green light. I know that it is probably a convergence thing, but is there any easy way to fix the light. The closest repair place to me is an hour away. I had to rent a trailer to get it to my apartment. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Re: red duplicate image outline of picture.

You have lost red convergence. which ussally means one or both of the convergence amps need to be replace.. but it could be a resistor. does the red cross move up or down or side to side. how about the blue does it move in eather direction. this will let me know if both are bad

I have a 61'' Panasonic tv that is showing green and red outlines around the figures on the screen. It originally started as just green outlines. Any ideas on what the problem is would be great. Thanks

The convergence is off. The convergence is basically the assimilation of the image on the screen from the three "guns" behind the screen. There should be a menu option to align the convergence in the image portion of the menu. If this does not fix the issue, then your convergence chip might be on it's last leg.

Our projection TV is showing double, like the words are duplicating red and blue outlines as well as the picture. It used to be that it would do it once in a while and a little bump to the TV would set it...

Not knowing the model, I would say that you have aconvergence problem. On most newer sets this can be corrected with the remote. Go to menu,then advance settings, then red or blue convergence

I have a Slim-View LXI TV Model # PTV 515 AHO1 Has no Picture

while i dont have a true answer, I can tell you its a magnavox tv sold by sears produced back in 93. Ours just started doing this last week. I couldnt find any help online so we replaced it with a new led flat panel. WOW what a difference, the LXI was great for the past 17 years but the new tvs are better. We put the LXI in the garage because we couldnt throw it away. That tv was like a family member, if i figure out how to fix it i will post the how to.

Red outlines around, and zigzagging thru the picture.

If you were to put an all white image on the screen, would there be evidence of this red color in the picture? If so, its likely that the light engine has gone bad. One or more of the LCD panels inside has been damaged by the heat from the lamp. This is an expensive part to replace. It never hurts to contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!

Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

Samsung HCM5525W TV red blue outlines on images

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
