SOURCE: my son hit the quick

dustinis,

While it may be true that your son hit the button on the quick focus, I doubt that he caused the problem. Why was he hitting it in the first place? Probably because the unit was not in focus, I would bet. The better answer would be that you have a problem with the focus on you unit.

It is the convergence circuit which needs reapaired, you need to replace the convergence ICs and your son did not cause the problem. To solve this problem go to my tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4220499-change_projection_tv_convergence_ics which will walk you through the precedure of changing the ICs as well as where to get the parts at the best prices.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the excellent rating. Great ratings will keep the experts solving problems.

How can I connect my Desktop computer to my Hitachi 57F500 TV? I have an emachines desktop, running MS Win 7 connected from Monitor VGA port to DVI port on TV via Dynex DVI-VGA cable, but not getting any...


Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

RED WAVY LINE THROUGH SCREEN OF HITACHI 57F500 REAR PROJECTION HDTV TV


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) 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

My hitachi 57f500 turns itself off after 3 hours of use. Turning it back on restores the picture,


Hi I am Vortash
There may be actually nothing wrong with your set ? .......
This set has an anti surge protection circuit and it is designed to shut down should the incoming power peak above 240 volts or more , is this happenig at random times or around the same time in the evening or day it may be that this safety device is protecting the set .. sometimes local area transformers peak at the time of most consumer requirements this may just coincide to when you sit down to watch tv .. however if it has a habit of doing it at different times during the day .. then this safety circuit may be at fault and require an engineer to service the tv and check for poor components that have changed value .. It explains this is in the manual if you do not have one for your set you can download one for free from http://www.safemanuals.com hope this is of help regards Vortash
