Question about Hitachi 43F300 43" Rear Projection Television
Issue started suddenly from one use to the next. images have red ghosts, and text is nearly unreadable. I tried the auto-focus feature but it did not help.
The suggestions listed would be relevant for 'Ghosting' by itself,
however you mentioned you tried to use the crosshairs to line up the images,
which implies convergence - red/green/blue image separation and/or
distortion. NONE of the solutions mentioned were anywhere close to the
fix for this problem - this us usually cut and dry; convergence circuit
failure. Generally, STK ICs are used. (Common parts are
STK392-010/020/040, STK392-110/120/150/180, etc.) Most times replacing
BOTH of these chips will be enough, sometimes there will be a blown
fusible resistor and/or burnt resistors near the chips themselves. If
you don't implicitly know exactly what I'm talking about, don't attempt
it - take it in to a repair shop. For in-shop repair, this would NOT
exceed $250 (EVER) at our location, unless there was more damage done,
which is a one in a hundred situation. Good luck!
