Intermittent vertical black lines samsung hlp5067w


even technicians who are familiar with those units, before installing new lamps, they use a 'calibration unit' for that or any particular model lamp and calibrate them right after installation. If you don't have the proper calibrator and adjust them right after you installed them, you will get that result. Even experience techs come across that problem if the calibration is not done properly. Also, each lamp for a different color value, has its own calibration/sync values.

Not focused


Please! Stop using the magic focus now!
There are internal parts that have failed and this requires attention by qualified personnel.
The more you hit the magic focus, the more the proper calibration points will go off the mark, since the computer only knows that the calibration is incorrect, but is unaware that the parts that DO the calibrating are defective.
Sometimes this will make the repair more difficult, since a major maual recalibration may be necessary if the registers "rolled over".
If no one had touched the magic focus and just called for repair, the set would just need the parts. Once replaced, the set would look normal. Yours will require a few more steps.

Is there a Magic Focus function on 53XDF01B?


The correct model is 53fdx01b. There is a mogic focus button on the front of the set. Procedure for Chassis DP05F, DP05, HP11, HP12:
1. Press and hold the DIGITAL ARRAY or CONVERGENCE ADJUST button on front panel.
2. While the button is held down, then press the INPUT or ANT button on remote control.
3. The unit will now be in the DCAM.
NOTE:
1. Proceed with digital convergence adjustment.
2. Remember to save the correction data.
3. Units with MAGIC FOCUS only - Failure to initialize MAGIC FOCUS sensors after saving
convergence correction data will result in a STATIC (+) display when MAGIC FOCUS attempts
to run. The technician will then be required to access the service only switch behind the front
cover to get back into the DCAM to initialize the sensors, since the procedure to access DCAM
without removing the front panel, requires MAGIC FOCUS to be running.
4. To exit, press the POWER button on the front panel.

Majic focus lines very broad


Undue the calibration! It sounds like the dynamic contrast is up too high.

Hitachi tv magic focus does not work


Your problem is the convergence circuit. This is very common in CRT projection sets like yours. There are a couple of IC's that need to be changed and possibly some resistors. A good repair shop will run you $400-$500 to do the repair.

One half of picture is distorted


to create the total geometry in the tv is needed a system called Convergence.Convergence amplifiers are damaged in this unit, magic focus cannot work because magic focus works to level computer and controls the amplifiers damaged. this repair is for a technician because an adjustment is needed after the amplifier's replacement.
