Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Discoloration and shadow in the top left corner

We've had our Ultravision for 6 yrs. We recently had Dishnetwork setup. Within a week this weird discoloration started in the top left corner. It's a yellow and green combo.

Also, the TV is now turning on in the middle of the night, every night.

We paid too much for this TV not to last longer than 6 yrs.

Any ideas?

Ultravision Digital TV has shadows and vertical

I believe it is either interference or a convergence issue. To fix an issue with convergence try to find a convergence setting in the menu. If thatr doesn't work try to clean your projection lenses with a q-tip and alcohol.
Good Luck.

Blue shadows appear to be behind white objects

TV shows large red spot in middle of tv when dark show are on, you can see it more.  Now blue spots on upper right side too.  Spend way to much on this tv to have these kinds of problems only after 3 yrs.

Side shadows on picture

it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam
