Hitachi 43FDXO1B Convergence?

Just bought a 43FDXO1B(no remote) for $150,....the picture had a slight double image(red&green) and a green arc at the bottom. I downloaded the manual and tried adjusting the convergence from the control panel, now I have another arc at the top and more double imaging.Lines did'nt seem to adjust during convergence. I am pretty handy, but think I will call a technician to repair IC's if that is the case.Any suggestions or price ranges for repair?

Re: Hitachi 43FDXO1B Convergence?

1. Receive an NTSC signal.
2. Press Magic Focus to begin magic focus
3. Press magic focus again during the magic focus process to get the “stop” screen.
4. While stop screen is up, press STATUS or INFO on the remote control (R/C) to bring you to DCAM mode and the service grid (64 point grid).
5. When you first get in here? I believe red is the selected color by default (it is flashing).
6. To choose other colors to converge, use the following buttons on the R/C:
· “STATUS” - Green
· “0” - Red
· “ANT” – Blue

7. Start from the center of the screen and work your way out on one color at a time. I adjusted red across the whole screen to match green. Then I switched to blue, and adjusted that to green as well. After you adjust blue, you
may want to go back and adjust some red again? etc. until the convergence looks good.

· Use 4, 6, 2, and 5 on the R/C to move the cursor position (dotted lines).
· Use thumb stick to move the convergence point color.

Then going along the lines and adjusting, you may run into the problem of getting an ‘S’ curve on the line. You’ll know if you get there. Basically, no matter what you do to adjust the line to be converged, the middle of the line between the points will not straighten out (it bends between the points). To fix this, the manual recommends going to the (7x5) mode which gives you less points to adjust. I had this problem, and the solution worked. There is also another mode (3x3) which gives you even less points. Basically, if the set looks good, you only fine tune it in (13x9) mode (64 point). If you have serious problems, the grids work as:
3x3 – ‘coarse’
7x5 – ‘medium’
13x9 – ‘fine’
10) To get to each of these patterns use the following on the R/C: (only if you need to)
1. (3x3) Press “STATUS” 5 times (only works when DCU is in uncorrected state)
2. (7x5) Press “0” 5 times
3. (13x9) Press “ANT” 5 times
11) If you adjust the 3x3, then you should go to the 7x5, and then the 13x9. You get the point… depending on where you start, work your way up, and always finish on the 13x9
12) When finishing up the 13x9 mode, to get additional ‘grids’ on the edges of the screen, press the PIP CH button on the remote control while in the digital convergence adjustment mode (DCAM). Fine tune the edge convergence as necessary. To exit, press PIP CH again.
13) When convergence is acceptable, press PIP MODE to write data to ROM memory. ROM WRITE? is displayed to alarm system that ROM will be overwritten with new data. Press the PIP MODE button again to write displayed data to ROM.
14) DATA WRITE TO ROM will take approximately 4 seconds and no picture will be displayed.
15) Green dots will be displayed when operation is completed.
16) Press MUTE to return to convergence pattern, then confirm again convergence is acceptable.
17) Turn power OFF.
18) Wait a few seconds. Turn the TV on, and you should have your normal signal. Press Magic Focus button just to make sure the magic focus still works (and that you did the last few steps properly)

My hitachi 57' big screen is showning double image and my blue and green colors are blurred

Your problem sounds like a common one: CONVERGENCE.

THIS model uses either two of the STK-392-150 OR 110 CHIPS.

If colors are skewed and or look 3d this is your problem.

If you are a do it yourself person---total parts cost if purchased on EBAY would be under 25 dollars and if you need assistance doing it I am available to assist you..

See attached photos of what a convergence problem looks like.

Hitachi Model# 43FDX01B is doing a double image.

You have a convergence problem, you will need to change the convergence IC's STK392-110, there is also 12 6.8 1w resistors that need to be changed, there is also 2 fusilbe resistors that may be open. You can probably Google the IC's as a kit and find them all in one kit.
You can fix this yourself and save about $300-$400 in repair bills.

Convergence chips replaced, tv powers on and no picture

You have to replace the chip with the same kind, or at least crossed referenced, but still exactly the same but diffrent manufacturer.

Top left corner double picture red and green

you have a failed IC resistor usually you can physically see the bad one because it burns out leaving you to guess what the value was. Hitachi offers a convergence fix kit which has 2 IC's and all approiate resistors.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.

This is a problem with the convergence circuit. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These ICs are large and black, attached to a heat sink and are marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted on your progress.
