You probably have a bad convergence chip on the convergence board. I have worked on many of the same type of sets and this is normally the main cause of your problem. I suggest you seek a qualified technician to change these chips and also I suggest you ask the technician to change both ( there are 2 convergence chips in your set ), as it seems when one goes bad, the other is on it's way out also. I hope this has helped.

My grandfather has a Hitachi 50ux58b and is having double vision or shadowing -- whatever it's called and redness color fading-like. Was told it was a convergence IC that needs replaced -- uncle looked...


try not to do repair yourself. the tv holds high voltage even when unplugged. you could KILL yourself. If red is fading the convergence ic will not help. you need to replace all the guns. red, blue, and green. usually each tube or gun is around 300 dollars each.

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.

Shadows and double vision


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Shadows double vision


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Unit has bad convergence IC's and maybe open resistors. If your technically inclined you can replace the ic's yourself and look for burned resistors. I would need your model # to give you the ic locations and part #;s

Red double


Bad solder connects in convergence circuit...a solid fix is to
replace STK392-110 convergence IC's with upgrade STK394-160
Part # CZ 01341... you need two.....or buy kit # X480295 ( one )
Look for any damaged resistors near IC's.............T.
