The problem with the video from the VCR and Game console only being in the PIP window is likely cured by hitting the swap button (or its equivalent) on the remote control. With the Washed out video on all channels, that could be caused by defective capacitors on the CRT drive board, usually 470uF @ 10-16Volts . It could also be caused by dust buildup on the Lenses, and if the set was used in a room where people smoked, the mirror probably has a film of nicotene on it as well. I don't know what you mean by a vertical problem as well. If it involves retrace lines at the top and a shortening at the top and bottom, then I would suspect capacitors in the vertical circuit there as well. If it is a vertical jitter that you are experiencing, I would suspect bad solder connections in that same area.

Signal Problem


Hi,

When the sound is working and the picture is not it indicates the main power supplies are working but the picture supply is not. The picture supply that powers the projection tubes is a high voltage generator and is very expensive to repair. Not even most tv techs now how to troubleshoot them. So, I cannot recommend you repair it yourself unless you are a trained high voltage tech.

The cost of repair - my wild guess - would be around $300. However, the real cost can only be determined by someone who can make an accurate diagnosis - which will require a hands-on approach the problem.

If you have any other problem please ask me..
Goodluck,

Washed out video on all channels/power lights blinks no power


hi,

You could probably do the replacement by yourself.

First, go to the owners manual and make sure you have gone through the convergence set up. See page 45 of the manual. When pushing the magic focus button be sure that the set does inaugurate the convergence routine.

Your model has hundreds of parts listed at the www.partstore.com site; I did not search for the STKs but what you can do is find the part number on the case of the convergence ICs and search for it. They cost around $30 to $50 each and there are two of them of the same part number (usually). They must be mounted with great care.

Why would this happen again? Could be a poor design, could be poor mounting of the stks and heat transfer was not adequate, could be out of spec parts, etc.

Expect to take a couple of hours at least to do the replacements.

CAVEAT: We cannot be sure it is defective STKs, so do all the checking and testing you can to pursuade you that they are the real culprit - again.

If you go to http://www.freelists.org/archives/techassist/02-2005/msg00303.html and do a word search on "stk" you will find many interesting comments by others about replacing them and various other convergence comments.

Also, if you go to http://www.schematicsforfree.com/archive/?path=Video%2FProducts and look down the Hitachi list you will see a convergence file that may be helpful in doing the convergence...... It is for an older set, but I believe the procedure is about the same for your model. (This is in the manual setting area, not the Magic Focus automatic procedure).

If anything herein is confusing, please ask more questions. Good Luck with the repair.

Video tapes played through VCR experience vertical 'rolling'


unfortunatly no. the vert hold is set by black bars at the top/bottom of the video signal (outside of the viewable area). it sounds like your VCR or tape is damaged.

Mentor, sounds like it`s wired incorrectly or your using RCA cables (yellow, red, white ends) out of the vcr into the tv, If your using RCA cables the tv`s "input" (on the remote) has to be switched to "video input 1 or 2" etc to see the vcr tape. If you want to see the vcr`s picture on channel 3/4 you have to tell me if your using a cable or sattelite box and then I can tell you how to wire it with the coax cable, let me know, BMW Rider

Picture in picture


i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner.
check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip.
start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.

hope this helps,

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models


Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.
