Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Problem with tv

After the TV is on for a period of time, the picture becomes fuzzy and jumps around. I can turn the set off, and let it "cool down" and everything is back to normal, but eventually it will do it again. Is this common or do I have a unique problem?

Does it do this on video inputs? if not then you have a possible bad tuner.

PICTURE IS FUZZY AND DISTORTED


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


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 Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant 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

Picture is a little fuzzy and does not fit the screen


Good Day, mopar69;

Try this and if does not work, call SONY TV with Model and Serial NUMBERS, this sounds like you may have a defective light engine, and they are having problems with them, and they , Sony, are covering that device.

Restoring unit to Factory Preset Condition

1) Power off the set (set is now in Standby Mode).
2) On the remote, Press DISPLAY, CHANNEL 5, VOL +, POWER.
3) On the Remote press CHANNEL 8, ENTER.
4) Wait until Initial Setup is displayed.
5) Turn off TV sets power by the Remote or Front Panel button.
6) WAIT AT LEAST 3 MINUTES UNTIL THE LAMP COOLS DOWNS BEFORE UNPLUGGING OR DISCONNECTING THE AC FROM THE TV. If the set is not allowed to cool down the lamp may be damaged by excess heat build up.

I hope this was helpful, Good Luck, big IRISH.

Good Day, alsharp;

I am very sorry about the condition of your wife, I hope she recovers totally and my prayers are with you, your wife and family.

Do not turn TV on, the problem may get worse to the point where the TV may go DOA.

It sounds like you have some poor connections on the TV's convergence IC's. Since, you say that you are handy you maybe able to fix this yourself. If you own a good soldering station / pencil.

The convergence IC's will be located on the right hand side of the TV, looking from the back. They will be attached to a large silver device (heat sink). The IC's have 16 pins on each one, there 2 of them, side by side. Remove old solder and apply new.

I hope this was helpful. E-mail me at mmrkcar@yahoo.com for more info if you need it.

God Bless, big IRISH.

Picture loss


It sounds as though you have what is referred to as a climental problem. In laymen terms, a transistor, chip or regulator is heating up and breaking down. The way a technician normally isolates this type of problem is by using a cooling agent ( freeze spray ). When the set heats up and the picture goes away, the technician sprays some of the cooling agent on a part of the board ( select a small area, about 6 inches square ) at a time and see if the picture comes back on. When you do finally get to the bad area, the picture should come back on for a short period of time until the bad part heats up again. After a period of time and by using the freeze spray, a person can isolate the exact bad part. Replace that bad part, and any filter capacitors hooked to that bad part and the set should work properly. As always, use caution and unplug the set before opening the set and when using the freeze spray, be sure not to touch any connections in the tv as they could produce shocks.
I hope this has helped and good luck on your problem.

Loud whirring. Not the fan.


The fan noise is normal on this set. The lamps are cooled via this method. Your users manual explains this issue..and it is the fan as you can see it slows down after the tv is switched off..
