Question about Hitachi 51F510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

Color not right

I guess from reading the manual that the TV has three "tubes", one red, one blue, and one green. I think I lost the green tube. The color is all pinks and blues, really looks like ****, sometimes it goes back to normal for a few minutes, then changes again, is this a reasonably inexpensive fix or should I just trash the TV?

SOURCE: Hitachi 57SWX20B 3D Effect due to green light convergence problem

I'm trying to fix the issue on my 43FDX20B. So far, I'm able to move the lines up and down, but can't get the left/right motion to fix it. The attached link has the dynamic mode instructions, so you can correct this issue yourself.

The only thing I didn't have was the screen overlay jig the manual talks about. I decided to create one myself and use the screen as a beginning template. I went to our local hardware store and picked up some home window weather covering. The roll cost about $15, is a clear strong plastic and the template was very easy to create. I used a straight edge after I put dots on the plastic and measured the lines for being square and equal after I took it off my tv. Good thing is that if you don't like what you make the first time, you have a 25' roll to use to try again (ha).

SOURCE: Hitachi TV 43FDX10B has yellow line with blue curve line above it

It sounds like your convergence ic's are messing up

They have a kit for this tv it is available through local parts distributors
If you can't find it locally just Google HITACHI CONVERGENCE KIT

If you are not good with de-soldering and soldering do not attempt this repair. Remember to replace all the resistors in the kit

If you are not sure about doing this repair you should have your local tv guy do it for you

SOURCE: the Screen looks 3D & Colors don't line up on my big screen????

If the convergence is off more than 1/2 inch or so you can't adjust. you have a failure of hardware. most likely the output IC. This set has 2 outputs for convergence. Each output contains 3 circuits, Six circuits altogether 2 red ,2 blue and 2 green. The normal customer adjustment will only alow adjustment of blue and red. They should be converged onto the green. There is a much more complex adjustment in the service mode for Geometry and convergence. These adjustments are only needed when you replace a failed componnent like the output ic. These ICs have been upgraded several times since the production of this set. The latest and most powerfull version is STK394-160. If feel up to it I suggest changing both outputs and the corresponding output resistors. Then do a complete geometry and convergence alignment.

SOURCE: Have a 46f500 hitachi projection television.

It is a convergence problem and set uses two of the STK-392-150 CHIPS. Both will have to be replaced and the set adjusted.

for more information let me know if you can solder and your skill levels.

54cm CRT tv tube green


CRT color television have three color "guns"; red, green, and blue. This is where the term RGB comes from when discussing computer CRTs. If you are getting only green, something is preventing the red and blue guns from working.

I'm having issues with color? Every blue is now green. Can't adjust the tint. Any fixes?


You didn't say what the model number of the TV was, so I'll guess it has tubes for each color Red, Blue and Green. The blue tube is probably weak. If you really want to spend the money on replacing the tubes (costly) you may be able to buy a similar sized flat screen TV for less than the cost of the repairs.

After turning the tv on the colors are reddish and slow to conform to the normal color tones. i have a 36" toshiba flat screen tv


My first concern would be that, the picture tube is going bad. The problem you describe, tell me one of the color guns is shorting. In this case I would think the green gun is shorting. There are three color guns in the neck of the picture tube. They are red, green, and blue. Most of the time the green will short as it is powered heavily in most TVs. The next thing to check, is the small board connected to the picture tube. Look for any and all bad grounds on this CRT board. This is another big problem in all Tube type TVs. On this small board there will be three color output transistors, and resistors. These will many times run very hot and will create bad grounds over time. Check and resolder as necessary. If the CRT board does not fix your problem, replace the TV. Picture tubes are very expensive and will not be feasible for replacement. Search for a new TV. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

I have a toshiba tp50h50 rear projection tv and their is a blue shadow behind the words and makes the words a little blurry


Sounds like you need to do a color convergence. If you still have the owner's manual, it will give great detail on how to do this. The convergence menu is accessed from the video menu on the tv.
The tv has three color picture tubes, red, blue and green. The convergence alignment adjust each tube so that color from each tube overlaps each over to create a white image on the screen. Most tv's only allow you to adjust the blue and red colors.
Convergence should be performed each time the tv is moved and at least once annually.

I have an Mitsubishi HD1080i series rptv, the tv is about 10 years old, yesterday as I was watching the World Series, my picture went to a pink glow and I seemed to of lost some of my color especially...


This may not be a picture tube problem, but considering the age of the unit it may be cold solder joints on or near the crt boards. Each tube has a CRT Board attached to the neck of each picture tube. Check these first for bad solder connections, in not then it may be the green tube has finally failed you. Getting tubes for this old of a unit will be very hard. IF it is the Tubes then i recommend you think about purchasing a newer set..

I have sound but the picture is purple and will not adjust with the remote or manually with the buttons on the tv what can I do to fix this on the philips 36pt41b129


The unit has lost its green video information. This can be a picture tube or a green drive problem. The only colors you are getting are red and blue thus the purple picture. All picture tubes have red, green and blue guns to make all the colors needed for a normal picture. It will take some troubleshooting to determine whether it is a drive problem or the picture tube itself. Have a repair shop check it out for you. A 36" TV is worth a check out fee. Thanks for using Fixya. Let me know how it goes.

I was just given this t.v because friends couldn't figure out what is wrong with itl. The colors don't line up right,looks kinda blurry depending on the lighting of the program being watched. How do i fix...


According to the manual:
1) go to the "TV Main Menu"
2) Select "Screen"
3) Select Adjust Projection TV (obviously only if a projection TV).
This then allows you to adjust the TV's 3-colors. Selecting GREEN CENTERING brings up a control panel that lets you center the green projection tube on the screen. Selecting RED CONVERGENCE or BLUE CONVERGENCE lets you align the Red & Blue projector tubes. Centre the green projector tube 1st. Then adjust the red & blue until the test pattern on the TV screen appers white.
Good Luck!

On projection TV's there are three tubes red,blue and green. It sounds like the green driver transistor is open. Check for loose connections or cold solder joints on the crt board at the back of the green tube.
