    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?

  • Jaime Hernandez May 11, 2010

    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.

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.

I have vertical stripes (yellow, clear, blue then green) covering my entire screen. I have a Hitachi 50v720 HD tv. Help anyone?

T.V may have been magnified. Something magnetic too close to television will fry the screen per say. There are repair people with demagnifiers but doesn't always work

You may want to find a service shop willing to troubleshoot the power supply vs replacing a $300+ part. Labor will still be a few hundred but parts would be minimal.

It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part.
