Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence

Mikenj1964, Hi. You anwered my quesiton a few days ago about tinkering with the Convergence on this TV. I really thank you for that. When the technician popped that grid up on the screen he also manually taped to the screen another grid so he could align the TV's grid with the one he taped up to the TV. Is there somewhere I can purchase that grid he had? If not, would it be next to impossible to adjust the convergence or just a little more complicated yet do-able.

Thank you.

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.

Hitachi 53uwx10b Convergence Grid Tilted A Little...


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.

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.

Good Day, Armenian;

You may have CRT Coolant on one the boards. LOOK very closely for shiny spot on any of the boards. WHY? Because you are saying the TV is having multiple problems. Let me know.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

Color convergence problem


I'd suggest either replacing the ICs and resistors on the convergence board (requires soldering skill by yourself, someone else or an electronics repair shop) or purchasing a new convergence board from Partstore for $299 and swapping it out yourself.
While it may sound daunting, it really isn't once you find out more regarding this issue and dig into it a bit.  There's a wealth of info at the Digital Home Forum regarding this particular issue and ways to resolve it.
Good luck...  -TD

Hi, first what exactly are you looking for? the convergence board of the STKs number? If you have convergence problem, you will need to change the STKs for sure and check the resistence to the STKs and generally all of them have same low value. check it out and replace the faulty onces. switch on and adjust convergence and you have a good working picture on the screen.
