Question about Hitachi 53FDX20B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Woke up to watch tv this morning and I had a distorted picture. Everything seemed to be bury and not in focus. After researching for awhile, it became obvious to me it was the two convergence IC's. My question is I unhooked the board to take a look at the bottom of it to see if any resistors were discolored. Then i noticed a green wire sodered between the chips was discolored where it meet the board. My question does this wire need to be replaced and be re attached in the same location or just the chips. Thank you! Hitachi Ultravision Model # 53FDX20B

You probably need to get a Sony TV Convergence Kit. More information can be found using the link below.

Convergence Symptoms:
  • Screen Looks Distorted/3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
You can see some examples and find a fix here...

Picture looks concave ,mostly yellow,and double vision on words


Remove unshielded speakers or other metallic objects near the TV. It can cause picture distortion.
  1. Tune the TV to channel or cable program.
  2. Run the TV for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Press FLASH FOCUS on the front panel of the TV.
  4. A cross pattern appears and FLASH FOCUS begins to
    work. The adjustment is completed when the cross pattern becomes white and you are returned to the program you were watching.
You cannot perform any other functions until FLASH FOCUS has
completed its cycle. If you perform any other operation while FLASH FOCUS is in progress, FLASH FOCUS operation is canceled.

One half of picture is distorted


to create the total geometry in the tv is needed a system called Convergence.Convergence amplifiers are damaged in this unit, magic focus cannot work because magic focus works to level computer and controls the amplifiers damaged. this repair is for a technician because an adjustment is needed after the amplifier's replacement.

Hello ndulgebeauty,

This sounds like a power supply problem. I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to troubleshoot this problem. The reason being is that the TV does not come on at all. The problem might be the main power board (AC to DC) or the secondary power board (Switching Power Supply and distribution board). Have these checked first.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Maybe it's something with picture settings, i.e. NTSC/PAL or INTERLACE/PROGRESSIVE SCAN.
