MOST OF these sets use two STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE CHIPS---IC'S.

Depending on ACTUAL model number I can tell you what is needed to repair this. Go into customer menu and if convergence looks skewed and will not adjust both chips and any bad resistors around them that are bad, need to be replaced.

Considering that parts cost for this repair is under 30 dollars---if you or someone you know can do it you can save the set and a lot of money.

Most shops get at least 300 for this type of repair. It should be fixable right in your home in about 1 hour--I know as I have done hundreds of these repairs.

Get me the Model number and if you have questions
I will assist you--I am here to help people.

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.

53 inch projection tv...seems like the color red and color blue have shifted giving me a picture with red and blue shadows


For CRT projection TV's, this indicates that the Green picture tube is burned (warn out). The less green that strikes the screen, the more redish the image will look. You will need to find an old school TV repair shop that knows how to replace picture tubes.
In the case of a DLP style TV, the color wheel needs replacing.

Blue shadow


No. I would suspect it being a Optical Block issue. I is not a pretty repair not to mention the cost factor. If you could get in touch with Hitachi Customer Service they could lead you to s service facility that could comfirm what I think.

Hitachi Big Screen TV 46 inch Problem


Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
