Possible Light engine. Try calling Hitachi, usually they will be able to cover your parts, if you pay the labor, after a servicer has verified the LE is fubar. Call Hitachi and see what they can do for you. Just make sure you are really nice and polite, that always helps when you get the person on the other end to really want to help you.
or
poor connections on the back of the tv connecting to the tv, or you have the colours incorrectly connected.

    hi the stk ic's look like this. The cost if replacing this component don't use cheap ones, there are a lot of
    inferior components on the market, you should pay approx $25 -$40


    However you can also give this a try:

    Do the reset test Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you
    power it back up
    the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

    if this doesn't work u have to call a technician and get it repaired..

Vizio tv prolems. TV comes on normal for about 10 seconds (bright w/ colors) then picture dims with a hissing sound from the electronics. Anyone has an idea of a repair video to watch.


The hissing sound is over current from a shorted component. you best bet is to call around and see if anyone can repair it. Ask price first because you might be better off just buying a new one.

Zenith TV has me seeing red.


The red gun in the picture tube itself is shorted on. You will have to replace the picture tube itself to fix the problem. Probably want to just buy a new set. Sorry!

I cant get the color right. its to red??? any help? i did notice with the back cover off, there are 6 adjustment screws


yes! those are the screen and focus adjustments. 3 for screen, 3 for focus. try this. go in menu....turn down color, brightness, contrast all they way down. you should then have no picture, but in your case a little red. then go to back of tv and turn those 3 screen adjustments all the way down. slowly turn the screens back up until you get barely a picture. because remember, your brightness and contrast is all the way down. the picture should be dim but seeable and with red, green, blue adjustments, make it a black and white picture. when balanced..... turn up color , brightness, contrast in menu. enjoy!

yes its repairable
its a convergence circuit failure there are a couple ics and most likely some resistors that will need replacing and possibly a pico fuse

est 300 to 340 you mention only red and green though do you not have blue in your picture
id bet the blue is non exsistant and will need a blue liquid kit changed to correct that problem also

you might want to conatact a local servicer and give a model and ask them what they woud do both for then you can make a decision if you want to do it or not

Color fading, orangy red, video adjustments don't fix.


if it is a tube type unit you may not find a new tube they are almost extinct ,
also, most tube malfunctions are caused by improper voltage, only a qualified tech should work on the high voltage section of a tube tv,,, it can kill you even if it has Not Been Plugged in for a whole year

Phillips Magnavox 60 inch Projection Tv


That model is famous for having bacterial contamination in the CRT coolant causeing halos, and dim pictures with bad overall color issues. You can look into the lens of the CRTs when the set is laying and if the coolant looks cloudy or has any growth there you will notice it right away, and changing the coolant will restore color, clarity and brightness.
