Question about Hitachi 53SWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Thin Red Lines Everywhere

My tv all of a sudden started to show thin red lines protruding from the right off all objects in an outline form. It is very apparent when utilizing the menu screen of the digital cable. It is not the cable itself as the problem persists on different video inputs with the dvd player as well. Any solutions?

    I have tried the magic focus and it will allow me to alter the other 2 colors but not red. Red seems to be truely out of whack and I'm pretty clueless when it comes to circuit boards, sodering, and anything else when it comes to fixing a tv. Any idea of the costs to have a tech out to fix the problem? Obviously the tv is a little large to be putting in the backseat and taking to the shop. Just trying to get an idea of what the problem is and a cost to repair as I am concerned a tech will try to upsell me and charge me much more than I need to pay. Thanks for any advice you can give.

Have you tried to press the magic focus button ont the tv. sounds like you might need to just do some convergence alignment.

Thin red horizontal lines appear when viewing a dark background


Look around this sight the answer is explained here. you hace to take off the front speaker cover and a small panal undder it. you will find six knobs on a small panal. use these to adjust the settings fotr the power and they will remove the lines. You will need to have the tv on and I would sugest a normal size phillips head screwdriver not a power tool.

Red outlines in the picture


somewhere in the tv menu there is a place to make video adjustments. one should be for aligning the color guns. one is for red and the other two are green and blue. it will give you a cross in the center of the screen. it should also give you prompts to adjust the lines for centering and to save changes. this happens eventually on all rear projection tv sets.

Thin red horizontal lines across screen


replace the focus block or try to adjust the screen control on the focus block for red only. this will affect the white balance of the set so adjust it carefully. the focus block is located on the front inside the set. remove the speaker cover then the 4 screws on the front plate. the focus block is 3" x 2" black box with 6 adjustment posts three for focus and three for screen. adjust only the affected screen (R).

Sony 57 in Rear Projection TV


If the picture is playing fine and you notice that the background is getting more and more red, until it is too red and the set shuts down, it could be that the red screen control is set just a bit too high. If this is the case, you can probably correct this yourself. If you are watching a perfect picture and then it suddenly flashes a very bright red, with thin red lines in the pictureand then shuts down, it usually means that the red picture tube has developed a short in it, between the cathode and heater. A good tech might be able to remove the short by arcing, but if the short persists then the red tube will have to be replaced. Either way, this is something that should only be done by a qualified tech.
