Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

Does the repair & cost recommendation solve our problem?

Our 65" Hitachi Ultra Vision Projection set (4yrs. old) has a blue wave in the upper left hand corner. The picture also changes from color to blk & wht & back again. The tech recommends a replacement of the conversion generator & possibly 2 resistors in the blue circuit, after trying to adjust the grides for an hour.( $700+ is the quote). Yikes- to repair or to replace after only 4yrs, are parts that expensive or that marked-up?

I hope they are not your only repair shop around ,if i where you i would call another repair shop ,that is way to high for repair cost if they are only changing out (2) STK-392-110s, cost 90.00 also if they happen to be STK 392-560s the price of those are only10.00 differents also price of resistors at most 4.95- how much is bench labor?550.00 dollars wow!!!!! I think you were trying to say convergence chips if im right all the above is true. let me know if this is what they are telling you.I do this same job at my shop cost (2) stks 110.00 plus tax 8.80 plus labor if i do not run into hard time to realine 225.00 total cost 343.80

You have described a typical convergence problem. It takes skills in unsoldering and soldering to get it fixed. There are two convergence IC's that need to be changed and possibly a resistor if open. You have to determine if the picture before it went out looks good enough to spend money on. Typically the parts, technical charge and service call will cost you on average of about $300. However, since the set is already 10 years old I would venture to say that the tubes are getting weak and does not have much life left in them. I would recommend upgrading to an LCD or LED television for just a few dollars more. If you take on the project yourself, I must tell you that you need to be proficient in electronic soldering and unsoldering. The IC's are mounted side by side on a metal heat sink and are about 2 inches by about 4 inches and are soldered in with 18 pins each. Use desoldering braid to remove and when solder the new ones be careful not to bridge the pins with solder. Also when unsoldering care must be taken not to break the printed circuit. And look for a burned resistor which is a cylinder shaped object with metal wires out both ends and going into the board. You can identify the value of the burned resistors by comparing the ones that are similar in the circuit and are not burned. Usually there are two side by side

I have a 65 inch Hitachi projection TV and all of a sudden lines apperaed on the screen that runs across the upper part of screen. I tried using the"Magic Focus" setting to get rid of these lines...

The tv Magic Focus button don't solved these R,G,B colors lines mis alignments problems.Mean ur tv have a convergence pictures problems,it is dead.Ur tv now have any colors lines like R,G,B mis alignments,have a colors shadows picture or a 3D pictures look alike?Yes,mean ur tv convergence board it is dead to causes all of these pictures problems.The tv convergence board must have to repair like replacing 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.To fixed the tv convergence board to solved the tv convergence pictures problems.The tvs shops will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

Hitachi 53udx10b screen is dark, very blue and red. there is a red wave across the top of the screen. there is a blue "ghosting" of any text on screen.

The tv have a problems known as a convergence picture problems,it is dead.Tv set have any colors lines R,G,B mis alignments,have colors shadows pictures or 3D pictures look alike?Yes,than the tv convergence board it is dead to causes all these problems.Now the tv set convergence board must have to be repair like replacing 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.To fixed the tv set convergence board to solved the tv set convergence pictures promblems.The tvs shops will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

I get a split up of red and green in a wave at top of screen

The convergence ICs and resistors are the most likely things to cause that. You can get the convergence repair kit for the DP14G hitachi( 53UXX10B) at the following link which contains the parts and instructions.

Blue blur on part of the ultra vision

Do you normally leave this set on a specific channel...such as CNBC or BLOOMBERG tv...etc that maintains a regular scrolling image???

If so...on sets that are a few/several years old...the projection tv screens can develop what's called a "burn" or "burned image" on the screen...similar to wearing a path in your carpet from heavy traffic areas. Newer models do not have this issues...but many older ones do.
