Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV

Hitachi Ultravision Digital TV Model 57SWX20B

Help! Our TV had a stroke! My guess is that the blue bulb is the sickie of the bunch. The blue lines are not lined up, they are sagging down the screen, so we are seeing yellow straight words with a saggy blue double, and people have nice yellow blotches on their faces and their teeth are green. Actually quite comical, but does need to be fixed, as it is a little annoying to watch for any extended period of time. Do we simply need to replace our blue bulb, or is this some sort of other problem? We have done many Magic Focus's on it, most of the time it will not focus and get's stuck on the blue, however from time to time, we can get it to focus and look right for about 5 minutes then it strokes out again. Can you help?

My screen has a blue line that sags from the left side to the right. It is in the top 3rd of the screen. It is not a single thin line.

Your TV has bad convergence IC's. This problem needs a professional Tech to replace these parts. The average cost should be around $450. Call a factory authorized dealer.

43H70 Blue Convergence out of line and will not line back up

If the blue colors will not line up, and the blue appears to sag inward from one or more sides, then you can bet that one of your convergence IC's has either cracked loose or burned out. The IC should be resoldered or replaced and the convergence realigned by someone experienced with projection TV convergence circuits.

Blue Line

Sorry no bulb issue here. theres a vertical sweep issue though. if your not a tech i wouls sugest that you find a good one as this is a solid state set and there are no user replaceable parts inside, so you cannot service yourselfs unless your trained to do so. please seek out a trained tech to assist you in this repair.
