Question about Hitachi 43FDX01B TV
Double vision with red line at the bottom
It sounds as though you have a convergence problem. This problem is normally a convergence chip ( there are two (2) of them on the convergence board )
If you intend to correct the problem yourself, always remember to practice precautions by unplugging the tv before removing or servicing the set.
To change these chips, carefully follow these tips . I do suggest you change both chips as I have found that when one goes bad, the other one is on the way out also.
Remove the bottom back cover by using the proper screw driver or nut driver. usally a 1/4 inch nut driver or a phillips screw driver is all that's necessary.
When you have the boards exposed to view, notice on the left center of the convergence board ( the convergence board had 2 large ( large being 3X4 inches) chips next to each other. These chips normally are marked with number like STK 3020, STK 3050 etc.( I don't know the exact number on this perticlar set but they are all about the same ) They usally have about 15 pins ( wires ) coming from them. May be 12 or 18 but normally 15.
This board needs to be removed to change the chips, so remove any screws that mount the board and disconnect each wire connected to the board. ( NOTE : I normally mark each wire with some kind of a color code with permanite marker pen as to know exactly where to reconnect the wire to eliminate any mistakes )
With a soldering iron ( normally one of about 25-40 watts works well ) and some de-soldering wick ( can be purchased at most electronic parts stores or Radio Shack ), remove the chips.
Clean all the connections after taking the chips loose from the heat sink ( the heat sink is the aluminum plate the chip is screwed to ). Apply an ample amount of heat sink compound ( silicon grease it is sometimes called) ( can also be purchased at Electronic Parts Store or Radio Shack ) to the back of the heat sink and reinstall the new chips ( make sure the new chips are of exact numbers as the old), being extra careful not to bend the pins. Solder the pins being extra careful not to jump solder across any connections.( if you happen to apply too much solder and do in fact jump lead across the connections, simply use the de-soldering wick and remove any excess solder ).
Reinstall all the wires and screws to the board ( double check for mistakes ) and turn the set on, checking for the correct convergence. You'lle need to do a quick convergence with the magic focus switch after warming the set up for appr. 20 minutes. Reinstall the back of the set.
The set should work fine.
I do hope this helped

First try the auto convergence. If that doesnt work...
Symptom: Had convergence problem, and convergence adjust would not work
Cause: yoke loose and had dropped down, reset yoke and conv. This set doesn't have magic focus
