Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
•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.
•TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

Here are some photos of convergence problems

2003 ford focus codes p0316,p0300,p0302,p0303


I had a similar problem with my '02 Focus. I found the actual wires leading to the harness had broken. From the codes I would say you have lost a good connection with cylinders 2 and 3. My Focus started to hesitate and jump until normal temps were reached. Then it jumped and hesitated all the time. I went to the junk yard and got a replacement wire set for $3. I cut the current ones out and used heat shrink and electrical tape to reconnect the new. Worked like magic.

Here is an excerpt from the code problem below. Good luck

- Ignition coils harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coils circuit poor electrical connection

Mean ur tv convergence board it is dead,any codes error at all,mean the tv convergence board have components it is dead and the board it just dosen't conververt it three CRTS tv colors Tubes like R,G,B colors lines yokes anymore.Now.The tv convergence board must have it parts replaced like 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.After the tv fixed it convergence board,the tv will run the entire Magic Focus function,without any error codes at all.The tvs shops will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

Magic focus error Hitachi 51F500A


ok, you have more than 1 post for this set--this model uses two of the STK-392-110 OR 392-150 Convergence chips.

If magic focus will not adjust the picture both chips need to be replaced--about 13 dollars in parts if purchased on Ebay.

Green is not offered to be adjusted since it determines the geometry of the picture--red and blue are adjusted to it.

Let me know how much skill you have and I can tell you how to fix the set--it requires two things--getting at the chips and being able to unsolder and replace them--there may or may not also be some resistors around them that are now bad and need to be replaced.

most shops get 300 or more for this repair--total parts cost if you are able to do it yourself is under 30 dollars.

If this helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Problem with focus (severe problem on upper left


The Convergence circuit needs to be repaired.
There is a pair of Convergence IC's that need to be replaced. Best thing to do is to call a repair facility unless you have a solid back ground in Projection repair.
Hope this helps,

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.

Yellow and blue color ruins total picture on 50" tv,can't get rid


lupe0112,

I'm no expert, but I think that you have a problem with the convergence of the 3 color guns. I've been working on a similar problem. As a first step, have you tried "Magic Focus?" The Magic Focus button for the Hitachi 53UDX10B is at the left of the small front panel controls that also include your RCA composite and SVideo connectors. Let the set warm up for about 20 minutes (as recommended by the user guide), and then press the Magic Focus button. When you press the Magic focus button, the set will auto align the 3 color guns. If this doesn't fix your problem, unplug the TV for at least 4 hours and try again.

Convergence Error 3


DCShelley,

This sounds like an A to D converter problem which may be linked to you convergence amplifiers. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician work on this set.
