Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Green shadows all over the screen

My TV shows 3 or 4 shadows to right, they gradually fade so the last one is very hard to see. It is most prevalent when I see white lettering, then there's a distinct bright green shadow. It is everywhere on the screen. It only happens when the TV is warm.

I've had the convergence problem before that causes a color to go completely haywire, this is not the same. This is much more subtle.

This was also posted elsewhere, but not under the right TV. Apologies.

You didn't say how old the set was and how much it's used, but the shadows you're describing sound like a bad green picture tube.

Hope that helps...

Sony kp51hw40 has green shadows and on edges in pictures and blue flickers on and off, tried all adjustments including screen, focus, and menu??? no luck


The CRTs in this model of TV had a problem with internal leakage. The blue was usually the first to show the symptom (flicker). Because all 3 CRTs are connected to the same high voltage source, when 1 acts up, the other 2 suffer as well. You need to replace the Blue CRT. However, this TV has some age on it... 1 tube will lead to 2 tubes, and 2 tubes to 3... They only last about 7 years. If you love the TV, replace all 3 (about $200 each). I recommend replacing the Red and Blue first, adjusting the geometry and convergence to the original Green. Then replace the Green, adjusting the geometry and convergence to the new Blue and Red.

Samsung DLP TV shows green color where color should be black


This could be your video board going bad where your input cables are connected --OR-- the color wheel going bad. Hard to tell without a photo or reference though. Try swapping the cables first... and listen for any winding or whirring sounds.

Mitsubishi TV Model #WS65903 - Green Shadow Lines on Screen


Something is not right here--The green is adjustable in the TECH menu--did this person adjust or try to adjust in the customer or the TECH menu?

If you confirm actual model number I can tell you how to get into the TECH menu--yes--green will not adjust in customer menu--it determines geometry and is only adjusted in the TECH menu.

Also, this set requires any convergence adjustments to be done in 480 and then in 1080--if only adjusted in one mode the other will still be bad.

Let me know if you know how to adjust in TECH menu or not--with exact model number I can tell you how to get there.

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

Shadows on screen


Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!

KP-51HW40 Sony 51" Fades to blue screen


The service manual on page 8 shows how to adjust the Red/Blue/Green screen voltages. To get to the adjustment board, take the front speaker grill off (two screws at the bottom left and right) and set it aside. No need to disconnect any wires. Then remove the plywood board with 4 screws that exposes the screen/focus adjustments. The top 3 adjustments are for focus, and you need not mess with these. The bottom 3 adjustments are for Red/Blue/Green screen voltage rough adjustments. My screen showed red lines, so I had to turn the bottom right adjustment with a philips head screwdriver just slightly until the red gun retrace lines where no longer visible.

Faded Picture


I would have to say it does sound like the CRT is reaching its end. The thing that points this out that the picture gradually gets a little bit better as it warms up. It most likely isn't worth the cost to fix it.
