Picture problem I have a Hitachi 53 in Ultravision HDTV rear projection The picture now has a double image and the screen colors are more blue and yellow towards the ends of the screen. Does anybody have any suggestions for this problem or should I just buy a new one. This one is only about 4 years old. Thanks

    I have blue and yellow "half-moon" bands of color across the screen, at the top. Magic focus does not correct it. I have all colors and a good picture. I haven't done anything yet but research - set is about 6 years old.

    I replaced the 3 resistors and the convergance amps on the Hitchi 53 in ultravision. But I noticed a problem when I soldered the amps in place that I bridged one of the solder joints, I plugged the tv and nothing happened so I rechecked and desoldered the bridge joint and still no picture. Are there fuses that go when this happens or is the amps no good again. ANY HELP Thanks

I have check with some local techs about these repairs and they are saying that the cost would be a minimum of $600 and that the convergence alone would be $95/hour for about 5 to 8 hours.  This sounds extreme.  Should it cost less?  Is this something that I could do myself for less?  Thanks for any advice that any of you could offer.

The problem is convergance the amplifiers (two of them) have failed. posibly some resistors or pico fuses are bad along with them. they need to be replaced then realiegn the convegance. the cost of repair may be $200.00 to $350.00 depending on the tech you get.

I think it would likely work if you trimmed it evenly around the sides in order to maintain the central position. Focus may have to be adjusted but thats all.

Poss. convergence problem with Hitachi 53UDX10B Ultravision


You have convergence problem. Either bad connections on ics, ics are bad or voltages to convergence circuit are missing. There are no bulbs in this set. 3 picture tubes,red,green and blue produce a picture than when alighned(converged) correctly on top of each other gives you a color picture.When not you get the effect you are describing. Frst you can try the magic focus in the menu.

Can`t get clear picture anymore


Hello dhack56,

Can you post a picture of the screen as the TV is playing, this way I can see if the picture is fuzzy, or if the images are split, all of which classify as not a clear picture. A picture of the screen will help with the diagnosis.

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Hitachi projection 53" screen color off


Since this is a CRT based projection set, there is no "lamp" involved. Does the picture look like 3-D? If so, the problem is likely to be a convergence problem. There should be 1 or 2 convergence ICs marked STK392-110 inside attached to a heatsink. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on those ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace them.

Keep us posted.

Picture is yellow and green


Your missing the red drive on the set. Its most likly the picture tube. Its a possibility that the red drive circuit could be not working so the best thing to do is take off the gree picture tube socket and put the green board on the red tube. Of course do all this when the set is unplugged. if you have no tv experience. its not a good idea to be messing around inside of these sets.
