Question about Hitachi 50DX20B 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors seperating when unit first powered on

It seems like the blue colors are seperating from the rest when the TV is turned on. It goes away in 1-4 minutes. It just starte4 days ago and does not happen each time, but is getting more frequent. Thsi TV weighs 225 pounds and is downstairs, so hopefully I can repair it here. I am well versed at schematics and soldering as I repaired military aircraft for many years and now am a computer tech.

I would suggest to check the following link for a schematic diagram that may be close to your model. I do not think they have changed their design much only the model numbers just to add more features or charge more.

You will need to change the convergency STKs to restore the distorted colors. Check the low value resistors, fuse esistors that are connected to the ICs leads.
Those parts are mounted on a heatsink, they have normally 18 to 20 leads depending on their numbers.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

It sounds that the color mask inside the picture tube have been displaced due to hard shock. If so, it is irrepariable.

In the middle of watching tv, the screen just turned blue. We went to change the channel and as soon as we did, it turned blue. It doesn't have sound either.


Blue color production circuit is fine. Red and green color circuit not getting power, the same power also goes to sound unit. if that is rectified, issue would be resolved.

Watching tv/w a dvd/vhs player(a seperate machine)the power goes out on the screen.went out with a white flash like usually when i turn it off.now on the bottom where the control buttons are,a red light...


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

The other stuff is probably the Engine as well. Before going any further, have them replace it again and see if the other problems show up. I am willing to bet they wont. These Engines are mostly refurbished units and if they originally had intermittent problems on the Digital Board that comes mounted on the Engine it would get passed on to you.
I would not wait before having it replaced and I would Call LG first to let them know you got a dud replacement Engine. Let me know how it comes out.

THE RED, BLUE, AND YELLOW COLORS SEPERATED ON A 52 IN HDTV. THE PICTURE SEEMS TO HAVE A GHOSTING EFFECT TO IT


Have you used the color convergence settings on your TV?When the settings are off you will get this effect sometimes if the TV was jarred pretty hard it goes out of alignment.There should be a setting on your menu.If that doesn't help it may need re aligned by a repairman.
