    Model # is 51SWX20B. We smelled what we thought were burning wires when this happened however laser is not out but it outlines the rest of images and magic focus cannot complete. Thx, Scott

    Magic focus functions until the blue laser attempts to align. At this point the blurr goes across screen and magic focus then discontinues. Tried several times with same results. Unplugged TV and let set 24 hours and this did not resolve either.

    If the magic focus is not working,

    Do you see a normal video or it's distorted?

    Do you mean the lamp is burnt?

    Can you provide the model number of your TV?

Check the info from this link. If you are not sure what to do at this point. Try to post a picture with the TV on after the magic focus failed.

    Just out of curiosity here.

    What was the inapropiate part that you did not like or understood?

    I was not asking a picture of you, I just wanted to see the TV screen to give you a better idea on what the problem is.

  • Jaime Hernandez Mar 11, 2008

    I'm very sorry about that Guest. I guess I did not have my big SPOON to feed you.

    If you just took the time to click on convergence and go down to magic focus and try it, following the instructions but I guess you should read more about technical terminogy before you ask questions.

Is this tv hd ready?

Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

Hi, our TV has the red color out of alignment - can't adjust it. Any suggestions?

you need to replace the convergence chips, part number is stk392-110, also check for burnt resistors next to the chips. if any are burnt, they need to be replaced, you must solder in these parts, so if you don't have any solder skills, you will need a repairman.

Is my Hitachi Tv model 43FDX10B HD ready?

Probably but this hitachi has no reall HD just simulated, called D3VirtualHD by hitachi. Should work, you can always return the blu-ray if it's not what you expected or ask a good salesman if it's worth, you might try it in store...

HD ready

From your cable service provider
HD ready just means that the tv can display the HiRes modes, you have to have a HiRes input, from either a HiDef disk player or a HD cable service

Surround Sound Installation

The Hitachi 50UX57B is a 50 inch standard projection TV with a standard screen. It is not HD ready. If you need it, I think I can download the owner's manual (in PDF format) from Hitachi and foward it to you.
