Question about Hitachi 50UX57B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Older Projection TV Hitachi 50ES1B about 1993?

We just got this TV for free and the problem is that you see the picture okay but at the top and bottom of the screen is an arc of color blue and yellow. I can't seem to find a Convergence setup to reset this so do you have any suggestions? It's almost like a double picture but the center of the screen is fine.

    I have a 1996 Hitachi Protection TV - 50UX58BV8GO15396, in which the picture looks fine but has an arc of blue and yellow. On both the top and bottom of the screen. This "double picture" is off graphics and/or lettering on the screen.

    top left and bottom right color not aligned. The picture looks double and the magic focus does not correct the problem. I am thinking trash it and buy an lcd tv.

If you had the problem before, more then likely it will come back. Hitachi is bad about that. To clean the television screen you use a spray windows cleaner and do about half the screen at a time. You do this so that the spray stuff doesn't get into the screen. Then use a soft cloth, for example baby cloth.

3 inch blank space at top and bottom of 50 inch projection hitachi ultra vision

Good Day, richardyoung;

Lack of vertical reflection? Does this happen on all channels? Can you change channels and the picture size changes? Are you receiving a HD signal? Have you tried changing the format?

I hate to ask you all these questions but I need to understand your concern completely. If you answered some of questions above yes / no; your TV might be okay. But try them.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Try resoldering the vertical output IC. The crts may be blanking due to vertical deflection dropping out.

If the picture is jumping from top to bottom this is a vertical issue. The common cause on older Hitacjis is loose connections on the vertical output IC.

Free TV

It probably has a broken mirror or somethings inside the set blocking part of the pic. Now for ther picture all red. If your not a tech I highly advise you going insidew this . Unless you know about the saftey issues and the HI voltage issues. Your problem could be a shorted Picture tube all the way to na bad distribution block . Good Luck
