Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence

You know how on some TV's you can go in the settings and pop up a grid on the screen and align the colors? How do you do that with this TV?

Thank you.

    MikeNJ1964, You ROCK!! That's exactly the info I was looking for. Seems pretty straight forward. Thank you very much.

    that was helpful the first time, but now i cant get it to go back so i can finish it. when i press magic focus the second time it goes back to the tv.

    It seems I have convergence issue (after reading posts here). Is it possible that the television just needs this adjustment and not parts? The set has been working fine and then *poof* the left side started ghosting pink/green. I found a loose wire. It seemed to straighten up. Then it started ghosting again. I had the SDKs replaced about 5 years ago. Do they just go bad ever few years? Thanks-

    MikeNJ1964, I finally got the nerve up to dig in and see if I could fix my problem. With the repair kit from TVRepairKits.com all went just fine. TV is back in business!! Thank you for all your help and input.

You must have the original remote to do complete convergence adjustments. Remote method: Press MAGIC FOCUS button on front panel to start the magic focus. When magic focus is running, press MAGIC FOCUS again. STOP should appear onscreen. Immediately press RECALL or STATUS on the remote (must be pressed before STOP vanishes). The set is now in DCAM (Digital Convergence Adjustment Mode). Manual method: Remove the front grill and access panel or reach around from the back and press the little pushbutton located in the front left corner of the PC board, next to the Digital Convergence Module.
Once in DCAM, the remote buttons STATUS selects green, 0 selects red and ANT selects blue. 2,4,5 and 6 move the cursor and the thumbstick makes the corrections.Make all necessary corrections and then press PIP MODE. The words ROM WRITE? appear onscreen. Press PIP MODE again to store settings. When green dots appear, press MUTE to return to convergence pattern. Press PIP MODE (ROM WRITE? appears again) and then press PIP CH. This will Initialize the internal sensor data positions. When INIT finishes, press POWER on the TV and convergence is complete.

If the tilt is not that bad, I would leave it be. The reason is yes you can straighten the tilt out, but it requires a mechanical alignment to all 3 CRT's then you will have to align the convergence on all 3 as well. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

HITACHI ULTRAVISON REAR PROJECTION TV HAS 3 OF EVERYTHING. IS IT WORTH FIXING?


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 Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a 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

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

There is a convergence output kit for this set. There are probably resistors in the convergence circuit that are starting to loose there values. If you are going to have the set worked on have them install the whole kit which includes the convergence outputs and resistors. Thanks

Convergence settings on hitachi 53uwx10b


Yes - You will need to either remove the circuit board or lift up the tray. If you are not sure how to do it yourself read the link below.

  • This is a very common failure on Projection TV sets.
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence


The grid (called an overlay) is put in place to fine-tune one of the colors, usually green. Once one color is adjusted perfectly, the other 2 colors are adjusted to match the first color. For example, if the convergence data is completely erased, the tech will set up the overlay and align the green using to the overlay, and then align the red to the green and then the blue to the green. If the alignment is being done after replacing the convergence IC's because one or 2 colors are slightly off in the corners, the green is usually very close to perfect and the use of the overlay is not absolutely necessary. It is pretty easy to align one color using the outer edges of the screen itself. If you do need the overlay it can be purchased from any Hitachi parts distributor such as Herman Panson, Fox or Union Electronics.

yes he used the service menu, however if you dont have the service manual I wouldnt recommend doing that as you can change the wrong item and your set can get messed up bad enough where you will need to have it serviced professionally. If youd like the service manuual go to this link they have one they will email you and they will provide free tech support with the service manual purchase
