Question about Hitachi 60FX32B 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tune up for Hitachi 60FX32B

This TV is about 11 years old and has never had any service work done since new. It has had constant use for a large family since new. It seems to be working fine, but wonder if there is any tune up, internal cleaning, or light bulb replacement for color that would restore to like new condition. We are not sure if it seems to be slightly darker in picture quality but might be the case. Any suggestions?

    No smokers in the house, so will try cleaning the lens like you said and also adjusting very slightly the RGB focus and see what happens. Would there be any benefit to replacing any of the color tubes? and if so what is the general cost of these and could I do this myeself? I will let you know ASAP about the cleaning and slight adjustment. Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate it.

Remove rear cardboard cover....can you see tops of red / green /
blue tubes ? Clean lens' with soft , dry cloth......Do you smoke ?
If not , replace back. Picture should now be clearer but not
necessarily brighter.......Next, remove front speaker grill and find
the RGB focus / screen adjust block....turn RGB screen controls
SLIGHTLY clockwise to achieve more brightness....not too much
or you will have retrace lines in background of picture.......Let me know after these steps are done........T.

    Do not adjust focus...only the SCREEN controls....

    Changing tubes pricey and mechanically challenging = not

    recommended...............T.

My 6 year old 65xwx20b tv convergence problem


Good Day,

This is a common problem with this TV, but there is an upgrade to correct the CONVERVGENCE circuit problem.
If you want to repair this concern yourself: Contact: B&D ENTERPRISES,
1-800-458-6053, www.bdent.com and ask for KIT10 for your Hitachi TV.
If you want some else to do the repair for you call an Authorized Service Center.
Needs convergence IC's

BLOWN RESISTORS


you can download your schematic that will tell you resistor values and the rest of the circuits and IC indentifications as well as test procedures and more , this is a ten part zip that can be opened with winzip and read with adobe just click here http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/12926/Hitachi_50FX30B.html
then to order resistors you can get them here http://www.nteinc.com/
or look for an electronic parts supply store around you , but alot of the time they too have to order the parts, ecspecially certain valued resistors or other special valued parts
if you need more help just ask !

Hitachi 60fx32b is dead with no lights on front panel


The two other fuses look like resisters. My suggestion would be to check them first and if bad use a temp of the same rating to see if it was just a power surge.

Hotachi 60 model 60fx32b


I hope thats a typo and you meant 2 (two) inches on the left side. Have you opened the small door on the front and hit the "magic focus" button yet? NOTE: be sure to turn on the set and let it run constantly for 20 minutes before pushing the magic focus button, once it starts do not push any buttons it will go through all 3 colors and stop on it`s own when it`s completed, if you don`t have bad IC`s this will fix your problem, good luck
