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!

    Thanks for the quick response. I can move the blue crosses in all directions and when I auto focus, they line up with the green crosses without a problem. I can not move the red crosses at all. Thanks again for the help.

    I looked at my TV again last night and the red crosses do move vertically. So the problem is that the red crosses will not move horizontal. Does this change your prognosis?

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

    this to me indicates bad convergence ic...maybe just one. if i was troubleshooting this set i would say i would need to check this chip. ussally you replace both.. depending on set convergence chips can be difficult to replace. lot of soldering so i would let a qualified tech look at it

  • Willie Howell Jan 04, 2008

    O yes.. this now points me toward one of the convergence ouput ic "RESISTORS" are bad. theres resistor for veritical and horizontal.

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.

If that is the case, you need to turn off your flash when
taking outdoor pictures because it seems that the pictures are overexposed.

Try to avoid the sun when taking pictures outside.

But you could try the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Return batteries
- Turn on camera

- Turn on camera
- Press MENU button
- Scroll to the right until you see SETUP
- Scroll down and look for RESET
- Press right button so you could see YES or NO
- Select YES
- Press MENU button
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that
settings will be refreshed

* If it still does not work, call the Manufacturer so they
could tell you how to send camera for repair.
