Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Turned on the TV today and the images on the screen are separating. It looks like im looking at 3-d without the glasses. Anyone know what that means?
IF model number is 51F500 and you go into the customer menu and convergence will not adjust or is skewed and 3d one or both of the two convergence IC chips this set uses is bad.
Usually in this set they are either STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150----both are essentially the same part but the 150 chip is a higher current and longer lasting part.
Both chips and any of the protect resistors around them that are bad need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the Hitachi remote.
Considering you can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping, if you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money.
Most shops are going to get 300 or MORE for this repair. The repair takes about a hour to do and should be able to be done right in your home---I know as I have done HUNDREDS of them here in people's homes.
